Tidy Tuesday--Laundry

Laundry Rule #1---NO clean laundry may enter your bedroom unless it is folded and put away. This will cut down on the piles of laundry covering every available space in your bedroom!
Laundry Rule #2---Get a hamper in your bedroom and immediately put dirty clothes where they belong.

I don't know about you guys but this tip could not come at a more opportune time for me as my bed is piled high with clean clothes! I hate laundry, I mean passionately HATE it. I generally try to avoid it until my husband tells me he needs clean underwear. This is why I chose not to cloth diaper, my "Just Say 'NO'!" to more laundry philosophy. But, tonight while I watch Big Brother 11 (please evict Michelle, Kevin...seriously!) I am going to fold and put away laundry!

Happy Cleaning!!

Manic Monday...on Tuesday

So, I'm already off to a poor start on my daily themed blogs! But I have a very good excuse this time, yesterday was a holiday and Cory was home. When he's home all schedules break down and we fly by the seat of our pants, not good for someone who does not function without at least some order but we survived. And as a result you get TWO new blogs to read today. I don't want to get too far behind!

Our weekend wasn't fun. Just a soccer game on Saturday and Cory power washed the driveway but you don't want to see or hear about that so I decided to steal my little sister's weekend and post about that instead. Thanks, Britt, for leading an occasionally exciting life! ;)

Saturday was the first Arkansas Razorback football game of the season. The game was at 6 pm and the family started tailgating around 9:30 am. These are good times and it is on these occasions that I ache to live closer to home, but only a little! I'll let the pics speak for themselves and leave you with one last thing...

Finally Friday

What a week we had! Katherine had a great first week of school and I could not be a prouder Mama! My house looks like a bomb exploded so I'll be busy the rest of the day cleaning and doing laundry so I don't have to worry about my trashed house this weekend. Katherine has her 2nd soccer game tomorrow. I think I'm becoming a better "Soccer Mom" too. I wasn't sure I was cut out to be a sports mom but I think I'm going to like it!

I realize I've been a bad blogger so I decided today that instead of trying to come up with updates everyday to post I'm going to have a different theme for each day of the week. So now I won't just stare at a blank screen and have a panic attack wondering what to write! If I have family updates then they will be a seperate post. So now my 2 loyal readers will have something new to read everyday! ;) This is still going to be a blog to keep our family and friends updated on us and the girls too so expect to see lots of pics of my wacky children!

Manic Monday-Weekend Wrap up and Weekly Overview
Tidy Tuesday-Cleaning Tips/Organizational Tips (This is more for me than for anyone else! If I'm not organized I get overwhelmed and can't function so hopefully this will help!)
Way-Back Wednesday-Old pics of me/Cory/the girls--This should be fun for kids of all ages!
Thursday Treats-New recipes I've tried...especially SWEET treats! I love to bake and this will give me an excuse to do so.
Finally Friday-Weekly updates, pics of the girls, pics of the girls' projects (especially Katherine's school work)

I'm looking forward to being a better blogger! And please leave comments, I feel like a loser when I don't get comments! :)

Katherine's 1st Day of Preschool

Katherine started Tuesday/Thursday School today. She was excited. When we got there she gave me a hug and kiss and that was it. I'm not even sure she knew-or cared-that we were gone! The first thing she said to me when she got in the van this afternoon was "I can't wait until Thursday." So, she had a great day!

Kaydence started out ok. She wanted to take her 'packpack' too but then wouldn't tell Katherine bye. When we got home she was kind of mopey and pouty. When I asked her what was wrong she would say " I miss my Katherine." (All together...Awwwwwwww!) It was pitiful. She didn't even eat her lunch. Poor thing. I think she'll get used to it and eventually will be glad to see Katherine go! Once she realizes that when Bridget naps she gets Mommy to herself she'll LOVE it!

Bridget was great today. We dropped Katherine off and went to Publix where Kay and Bee were both GREAT! When we got home Bridget went straight to bed and slept until 12:30. By the time she ate lunch it was nearly time to go get Katherine.

Overall, I had a pretty good day. I miss my big girl but it was a lot quieter around here without her making Kaydence scream all day! Yay for Tuesday/Thursday School---Bring on Kindergarten!! ;)
