Oh, I keep busy chasing T Rex - no question there. Definitely a full time job. But I need a few distractions while I anxiously wait - and I mean anxiously - to hear about nurse practitioner school. I only applied to one school because it is the only one I can do part time so Thomas won't have to go to daycare. And it would be instate tuition so financially we would be able afford this avenue. Hopefully by this time next week I will have an answer, but until then, I suspect I will be doing a lot more organizing and cleaning.
Did I ever mention how much I enjoy organizing and cleaning - love it! I would happily come over and do your house if I could - seriously.
One of my projects this week was to redo my side of the master closet. It's been a while since I did a really good "purge" and put together some things for a donation run. This time, however, I documented the event.
I also decided to wash the sheets to our bed in addition to vacuuming the mattress and under the bed areas.
In this second photo you can see T Rex brought in his vacuum to help. I dragged in the tunnel and rocket box as distractions while I actually did vacuum.
Thomas LOVED the boxes I was using - he fit perfectly in them. For more photos of him helping me, check out his blog.
This was one of the cool items I found in my things - a purse given to me by T Rex Dad's grandma Besta - she passed away just before Thomas was born. She was nearly 102 years old. So one can only imagine how old this is.
What was I thinking? My mom offered these to me a few years ago and I graciously took them - not sure why. They went in the donation pile - sorry, Madre'.
The donation bag - it's about the size of those large leaf bags - there are at least 38 sweaters in the bag (I itemized everything for tax purposes).
The little face telling me he had to GP ("go potty").
Break time! You can see how dreary it was outside - we were not missing anything by being inside. Maybe that's why it's called "Spring Cleaning"!
My side of the closet - T Rex Dad is still working on his side - his did not start out as bad as mine. Look at all that room for more clothes! Too bad I'm not much into shopping for myself anymore. So much more fun to shop for T Rex.
Everything neatly stacked and folded - done at least 2 - 3 times since I had a little person "helping" me.
Bed is made, organizing is done, T Rex is bathed...Whew - what a tiring day!
If you need a little inspiration, this might help. I found a total of $18 dollars in lose bills and coins during this cleaning event. Cleanliness actually does pay!
And that is the first of my "Spring Cleaning" projects. Let me know if you want help with your projects! I'd love to be of service...at least until school starts...hopefully!
