We love boxes!

We love boxes!

Boxes are great toys! (But you already knew that, didn't you.) Eli received colorful boxes of various sizes from Grandma Anna for Christmas. Of everything he received that day, he plays with these boxes the most. In the picture above, Eli had just discovered that the boxes could be boats. Earlier, they had been houses - complete with attached garages, race cars - in a very heated race by the way, and a top secret hiding place for Bunny to get some much needed shut-eye. Now... they are boats. Isn't the imagination cool?! I think I'll borrow one of those boxes and go imagine myself a hot tub.

Week 1 of the Great Home Declutteration

Week 1 of the Great Home Declutteration

My first session with my organizing guru will be this afternoon. I’ve got a significant to-do list for before she gets here. I need to straighten up the living room, make sure the kitchen and bathrooms are presentable, and clear walk space in all of my biggest problem rooms (i.e. bedrooms). Goodness! Getting ready to get organized is hard work! I hoped to have taken down our re-useable Christmas tree and decorations before she came, but I don’t think that’ll make the final checklist. In the last week of 2010, I thought that certainly by the end of the first week in 2011, I’d have that tree stored away. But herein lies the reason why I need help. I just haven’t gotten around to taking down and putting holiday stuff away; as well as some other stuff. From months ago....
