Mission Organization

Ya'll I don't know about you, but there is something about the changing seasons that gives me this deep urge to organize. I'm pretty laid back, so total organization is sorta overwhelming to me, but I see the need in a new light.

Back when I had my surgery Dad came to help with Eli, so while I was in the hospital he did all my laundry and cleaned the house. Sadly, he laid several grouping of stuff on my bed for me to put away because he couldn't find where they went. I'm talking bras mixed with undies sorta thing...not a biggie!
Well, here comes the biggie: When it came time to wrap Eli's gifts later that week, we couldn't find any of the four pair of scissors I keep in house. The wrapping paper, tape, boxes, bags and bows were found in no less than three separate locations, thus something that should have taken twenty minutes turned into an hour..seriously? Still, this is a minor thing in life.

It however opened my eyes to the need for some type of organization in my home. In the past month we have lost (and then found) a dog leash, several medications, a few pair of shoes, keys, and countless other things. And ya'll I'm a neat freak...just not so organized! Anyway, I could save tons of time and "words" if things had a place. So Mission Organization has begun. I searched the super cool Pininterest site for ideas, but some people are just crazy with organization. I bet it takes them more time to keep it that way than it does for me to look for lost items. Anyway, I did find a few suggestions that are practle and would be beneficial to my home.
I am reorganizing my home top to bottom. I hope to be finished my Easter...ha! Anyway, I'm starting with the coat closet today and will progress from room to room from there.

Ok, I'm stressed now, so I'm gonna run...wish me luck. Oh, and I'll take lots of pictures for you!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
