Passionately Organized People

My husband made fun of me last Saturday because I was downstairs by 6:30 AM, excited to go organize the basement along with capturing before pictures. Once it’s completely finished, it’ll make for some great before and after pictures, at least I hope so. There is currently a large pile for a garage sale, a stack to trash, and a section we still need to … Continue reading Passionately Organized People

Lists, Bathtubs, and Faith

The realization that the laundry isn’t clean and put away, dust is stacking up on furniture, and the house hasn’t been picked up in a couple of days has sunk in. Everyone laughs and says that’s what happens when you have a baby and all the extras that come with them. I haven’t quite figured out how to complete projects, even after a year! Okay, … Continue reading Lists, Bathtubs, and Faith

Little Q is 1!

Little Q is now 1 year old!! It’s surprising how fast that time went and amazing how much we love him even more every day! He has blessed our family more than imagined and want to spend as much time as possible with him. My husband, D and I are grabbing all the snuggles we can before he grows up and doesn’t want anything to … Continue reading Little Q is 1!

Blessed

Laundry is done, however not put away, little Q is teething and is getting over a cold, the house needs to be vacuumed, and we looked up what needs to be accomplished to renew our passports but didn’t start it. The house still isn’t decluttered, the baby wet through his diaper so his sheets need to be washed again, never got around to planting my potted flowers in the ground for winter, and am unprepared for the holidays.

On the up side. We have heat for the winter, a solid roof over our heads, working vehicles, shoes on our feet, food to eat, and clean water to drink. Everyone is healthy (other than colds), we have beautiful fall weather, are both employed with good jobs, have some incredible family and friends, each other, and an adorable adopted little Q. I had a rare weekend to relax with my precious family and even took a snuggly nap with Q. We are sincerely thankful for everything and everyone in our lives. We are extremely blessed!

7 Month Old Parenting

Parenting a 7 month old is somewhat easy, so far. They haven’t quite figured out precisely what you’re saying yet, but appear to understand and they look so endearing smiling up at you while waiting for you to smile back. When I tell him “No” he looks at me all serious and after a few seconds blows again. I tell him that we’ve had this … Continue reading 7 Month Old Parenting

Clutter Management

I hate clutter and we have it! At night I run around picking things up, putting things away, and as soon as I feel like everything is somewhat under control, we get mail with magazines, other toys pulled out for Q, pots, pans, and food hauled out to start dinner and in under 30 minutes it doesn’t look like I did anything. While doing some research … Continue reading Clutter Management
