Taking the Plunge

We’re off today to check out a part-time daycare/ preschool for our little guys.  I’m sort of mixed about it, but mostly excited.  It will be 3 days a week and my mom will be watching them on a 4th day.   I’m attempting tp take the 5th day off so we’ll see how it goes.  Christian’s three years old and is dying […]

Pure Organization- What???!!

Do you remember when I started “Pure Organization” this past January 2010and was all set to get organized?  Well, as you probably noticed, I totally slacked off on that front and we spent more of our time redoing rooms & on other projects that on actually organizing.  (Kids, work, life too, you know 😉 {Coat […]
