Weekend Work

This weekend we spent a lot of time relaxing and laying low--it's good to recharge!
We also had my in-laws of the east over for lunch--yay for family and food!
I hardly ever have people over--I have a "small" problem with perfectionism and it gets the best of me whenever we invite people over.
(Think whirling dervish)
But the food was edible and the house was clean and the company was the most important thing and we had a nice time!
One of my favorite weekend things to do in my "spare" time is to organize and reorganize the "storage" in my house.
I tackled my closet and rainbow-ed it up...
then I realized it's not much of a's more of a green, blue, purple/pink bow.

it still makes me happy though.
I really love organizing. I could do it all day long!
Although, I'd rather organize your house than mine--can I come over and go crazy with your cupboards and closets? It would mean the world to me =)
Anyways, it's Monday again and I find myself with
and the preschooler keeps asking
"But Mama, What are we going to do?!"
I'm always at a loss on Mondays.
I forget how to entertain myself when my husband isn't around.
The good news is that I have 30 minutes before Sesame Street is over and the situation becomes critical.
Off to wrack my brain for a cheap-easy-free-close-warm activity!

I have a great idea for you... you can come over and organize my closets, and Ryan and I will practice watching and entertaining kids :-) Seriously though, any time you're bored you can just give me a call.

I just realized I'm logged on under Ryan's profile, oops... that last comment was from Micayla though, not Ryan

I have a similar problem with having people over, too. I like to have the house spotless and all before people can visit. I'm SLOWLY getting over that, but it's taken a lot of practice!

PS, you can come organize my house. Bring the girls, they can play with my girls and then both of your problems would be solved! (plus I'd have tidy closets)

Oh My! I'm the SAME way! I always prefer to straighten up other people's junk! You better believe my closet is color coordinated too. I love this blog... fun, fun.

Come on over and organize mine anytime! Plus I'm pretty sure you have a free babysitter about 5 miles from me!
