Spring Groove

I'm liking this weather we've been having! It makes me want to do crazy things like exercise, clean, cook - things I avoid during the other 3 seasons. I have wild, fantastical ideas about getting so organized that my house functions efficiently and on a schedule.

My first plan is to cook once a month and freeze all of my dinners for the coming weeks. How convenient and efficient is that?! Organized people do this all the time. Maybe I should give it a whirl. I found really awesome websites to inspire me:



And then there's..

I also have another secret thought. What if I cleaned out my garage (WOW) and moved the filing cabinet to an accessible spot (WOW WOW) (and yes, my filing cabinet is in my garage) and filed all of my papers that have been storing up (Triple WOW)?! Further, I could clean out my 2007 files and store them in a banker's box.

Also - I am going to finish the real estate school that I signed up for 9 months ago and then became sidetracked from 4 months ago. By my plan - I should have it done by the end of April.

Finally - and my kids will hate me but it makes me chuckle with glee - I'm creating a list of spring cleaning 'to do's' that we will all finish on a Saturday when we are actually all home together. On the list are windows, railings and doorknobs, under and on top of the fridge etc etc. It makes me dizzy with joy just thinking about it. I can't wait to see the look on Connor's face when I inform him he has baseboard duty. Child labor in it's legal and fun form!

Poor Darren is missing out!

Spring - I love all of it. Fresh air. Sprinklers. Pine Sol. Grass. Clear skies. Crickets.

Bring it on!
