We have rearranged our house totally this weekend...moved three rooms...yep...you read it right.
And I am Ex. haust. ed.
My eyes are even a little fuzzy as I write this.
I wish I were a minimalist right now...I'm not.
My muscles wish I had worked out all summer...I didn't.
I'll post pictures of the move very soon.

Isabel LOVED trying on her new cheerleading uniform for us...but when it came to the orchestra jacket, she was a little less enthused. :) She bounced back quickly and put her personality into it...then it became a fashion statement. SO beautiful...inside and out...orchestra jacket or no orchestra jacket! :)
Hoping you feel good inside and out in any uniform you might wear today..
Happy day to you!!
Well, no one thought it could be done....and I'll admit, I had my doubts too!
Lesson from this week: A clean house is overrated...and kind of hard to do...memories are more fun to make and sustain! Anyway...we all made it and we lived to tell about it. I'm not sure it is good for the family when I'm serious about keeping things clean, that's all I'm saying.

Cocked your head to the side and said, "I'm angry"
Five days since you laughed at me saying,
"Get that together and come back to see me"
--these are the lyrics from a BNL song...
they seem to fit...
I've been ignoring my blog and I finally figured out why...
I'm wishing my blog were snazzier. I look at other's blogs and get a bad case of "I wish mine looked that cute." No, you have to say it with a more wistful sound in your voice! Anyone who knows about blogs and how to make them cuter, submit a comment and give me some help here. There are so many things I'd like to do...like to know how to do...BUT...I will not let that get me down.
On the good news front: I've almost gone one week with a CLEAN HOUSE!!! (Number 22 on my list of 22 before 44)!! I have had NO ONE just 'stop by' this week, either. People only drop by my house when it is crazy unorganized, messy, and I've decided to treat myself to a great sleeping in day...THAT's when my company comes. They are always really sweet saying, "OH---you should see my house" or "THIS? This is nothing!" Meanwhile, their eyes are telling a different story altogether. They are saying, "Poor Brenda...is she troubled? I'm seriously worried for her...I wonder how her kids are living in this...what DOES she do when she gets home from work?"
Folks, I'm seriously okay! This week, though, keeping everything super clean...I've felt more stressed than ever. As always, Balance is the answer.
It won't be another week before I blog again... :)
