New Day, New Stuff

Well, as many of you may know, I am addicted to finding a great bargain.

Translation: I LOVE FREE STUFF! (Who doesn't?!)

A family down the street just moved in last week, and they have had a race car bed sitting outside since they moved. I've been eyeing it, thinking, hmmm, I wonder if they're getting rid of that.... Well, on the way to preschool this morning, I saw a big box that said "Salvation Army" on it, and the race car bed was right next to it! Score! I stopped over there when we came home and asked the lady if I could have it. She said go for it, so I tried to pick it up, but I couldn't take it apart, so I had hubby go over there and get it later. I also picked up some boxes of toys and clothes to put on freecycle. And she also was giving away an exercise ball, a really neat stand up candle holder, and 2 self inflating mattresses! Yes, I feel accomplished.

This week I'm really trying to work on the house. With us moving into the new base housing soon, I have got a lot of stuff to go through. I'm starting with the closets. I've gotten the linen closet, the blanket closet, and the front hall closet done so far. Now I need to start on our closet, the boys' (which aren't that bad anyway, surprisingly), and the shelves over the washer and dryer (which are REALLY bad!) Plus, I'm also trying much harder to keep the house clean. Dad and Kay came and spent the weekend with us while they were on vacation in Florida, and I think some of Kay's good housekeeping skills rubbed off on me. It was like a breath of fresh air to have them here. We've lived down in MS since September of 2003, and this was the first time dad has been down here. I really miss him. The kids had a blast with both of them, and I was really glad, cause B has had stranger danger lately, and I was afraid he would scream when dad tried to play with him. But it was the total opposite! They had so much fun playing together. I got a chance to talk with dad about some things I've needed to talk to him about for a while, and it was nice to be able to do that. I'm still not sure how I feel about it, and I don't think he is either. I'm hoping that time will help. We'll see.....

Well, that's about it for today. I've got a growing mountain of laundry to fold and put least favorite chore, and you can tell. Plus, I have to work tonight, so I need to get a little rest. Until next time......

So thinking you need to come over here and share those cleaning tips with my silly butt.
Or better yet I'll go over there and you can show me.
So Happy you got to spend time with your dad. I know how much you love him.
