Yesterday, I went to the mall to use a coupon before it expired. Spending money to save money:) I loved looking at all of the spring styles. It makes me happen to see that ruffles are "in" again. I grew up in an era when ruffles were everywhere -- on little girls' socks, window curtains, baby bottoms and even aprons. Ruffles are so pretty and feminine and they make me happy. I need to find a pretty, spring-colored ruffly top.
It's nice to be back in a "groove" again after spring break. This morning I cleaned the master bedroom, including the closet, and came up with another bag. That makes 9. Some people have asked, How big are the bags? I've decided that each 'container' counts as a bag. Some are the 30-gallon trash bags, some are just grocery bags. My friend Mary suggested I use lunch bags! Whatever, it all evens out in the end, and the main thing is that I'm decluttering and it's fun! The problem is that I love decluttering and organizing, but cleaning? Not so much. I think the main idea behind this project is to clean like crazy as you go, but I'm not sweating it too much. However, I do find I'm more motivated to clean once the clutter is gone.
Baseball/softball season has begun, and on Friday, Dan and I are going to the Rockies home opener with some friends. The weather is supposed to be in the 70s! so I'm really looking forward to a great day. Go Rockies!
It's hard to believe that the school year will be over in less than two months. All of a sudden, I'm counting down the days and making plans for another graduation party. Wasn't it just last year that Joe graduated? No, it's been three years. I can't believe my middle child will be turning 18 in less than two months . . . just days after he graduates. I've been having weird dreams, where the whole family is on a trip and we lose him!
Yesterday, I picked up some potted basil at the grocery store. I don't know what that has to do with anything, but it seems like a happier note to end on than that last paragraph.
