Phew! Took a nice little break for a couple of weeks and only did a couple of projects as time allowed. More trips to the park with the kids and fewer hours painting and sanding while the weather still allows us to do those things
One of the first things parents of young children realize is how much crap they, the kids, seem to have and how all of it is everywhere all of the time. And how, some days, outfitting your kids with shoes in order to leave the house feels as daunting as climbing Mt Everest, with 2 kids who inexplicably have lost their shoes and have jelly on their socks. Who knew that my solution to jellysocks would be a free church pew on craigslist.
AND WHALLA! This freebie successfully delayed my desire to tear out the wall dividing our kitchen and dining room (for now 😉 ) and keeps me from tripping all over the shoes, socks, jackets and bags that were continually jammed behind the door. Plus, I’ve got more space to put holiday pillows! New organizational systems and repurposing garbage — these are a few of my favorite things!
