organizing

I've been trying to blog for days. First my computer wouldn't get online because Mike cancelled our call waiting and then didn't tell my computer. Then blogger was down. Oh the joys of internet access. heehee

Friday, Caroline and I cleaned out our toy closet under the stairs. I have had it organized several times and she keeps messing it up so I made some changes in how it's arranged. I had to stack all her games and only Mike and I can get them for her. The stack is about 4' high! The amount of toys this child has scares me. I always wonder what we're going to do after the next birthday/Christmas when there are more! Luckily she let me put two bags worth in the Goodwill pile.

I counted her coloring books - she has over 60 and that's after throwing several away. Here's a pic of JUST her Care Bears coloring books...unreal...

Yesterday we had a nice day at home with Daddy. He didn't have a gig which is rare. We ate dinner at Salsaritas, a new tex-mex type place here. It's just okay. Kinda bland.

In other organizing news...I heard Mike cleaning out a cabinet this week. I went in the kitchen and he said "all these phone books are old." I said, wait! let me take a picture! and ran to get my camera. Isn't this hilarious? For those of you who think no part of my house is unorganized - here ya go!

I'm off to do some cleaning and scrapping until my shows come on. Happy Sunday!

That is so funny! Oh, how I wish that I had a big closet for the toys! I think it looks great! Since Caroline helped you maybe she will want to keep it neat!

I have discovered over the years that coloring books multiply like rabbits!

Wow! That cracks me up! it's funny how you have to "prove" that your house is not clean all the time!!! I can't beleive how many coloring books she has! Wow that is just amazing. It looks super nice and organized. I need some of your cleaning mojo!

Yep, I'm the one who loves to take a trip to the Container Store and will roam the aisles aimlessly for hours!

It's pure bliss for an organizational fool like me!

I think the toy closet looks great! I have been reorganizing my toys as well...that is A LOT of coloring books!! I wish my kids would use coloring books, if they would I would have just as many...I love them! They prefer plain white paper and I just bought a new ream at Walmart the other day!
