sorting fever

now that the seasons are starting to change, i got bit by the sorting and organizing bug.

last weekend i dumped ALL of the kids clothes out on to their bedroom floor (the pile was literally knee-deep in the middle!), and sorted through piece by piece for the right season & size.

and this weekend i did the toys. knee-deep in my living room. the categories: toss & give, rotate in & rotate out. toy rotation is what its all about. i put some toys upstairs so that by the time they come back down they seem new again.

my next project is to sort out the horrible mess that is our entry hallway: the eyesore trip-hazard "shoe rack" (canned laughter), and hang the midseason sweaters and windbreakers on the hooks.

no, i didnt take pictures, but maybe i should have. i am so good

grandparents are fun

my mom & jim came for a 10 day visit.. and we all had a very nice visit with them.. we did a little tourism with them, and they did lots of hanging out & playing with the kids.

it was a hot political week too, and we fall on completely opposite sides (to say the least!), so we did our best to keep it sane. i thought we did a pretty good job of it too.
