COUNTDOWN TO SCHEDULES...

Don't get me wrong, I love having the kids around, but face it, we all need schedules and routines of some sort. It's been over two weeks, and I am anxious to get my house in order. Fifteen minutes to countdown for first bus pickup. Twenty five minutes for the high school bus.
Let me tell you, the kids are not excited about going back to school...heehee.

I have Christmas decorations to finish taking down and pack away (usually I have this done on the first!)....I have cleaning and a good general pick up to do. I want to sew curtains for our front hallway, and tomorrow I hope to take down the trim (we are going to replace it) and get it ready for painting. I will be SO glad when all the painting is done, but that will take time..and patience...

I started a new project (cross-stitch) on New Year's eve. I'll show photos on Wednesday. I also managed to do some Christmas shopping since Christmas...for this coming year. Things I know the kids would like...I got housecoats and matching slippers for each of my girls, I got a Disney store mug (older collects them)..for my oldest, I got some makeup kits 1/2 price at Wal-mart for the girls....I got a housecoat and matching slippers for my niece...so I did well!!

Anyway, I have a busy day ahead, so I think I shall end for now and get to work!! Have a wonderful and productive day fellow bloggers...

I'm happy to have my oldest home, as well... but was glad to get back to the swing of things this morning. She wasn't so thrilled to go back to school & I wasn't happy to start getting back up at 5:30am, but it's a small sacrafice, lol.

I remember those days of waiting for the kids to go back to school. glad you had a nice holiday - but getting back into the routine is nice.

We had snow falling last night before my 2 went to bed and they were so excited for the possibility of another day off from school! ACK!! But thankfully the gods were smiling at ME and the rain started as promised at midnight.

Woke up to a wet street (not frozen and NO SNOW) and skipped to my first wake up call (muhahaha)

Hooray for the routine! We're getting back to normal here as well ... and my house is almost back in working order.

I hope you enjoyed the quiet!
