Can I get organized?

Gosh, I don't think I've gone a whole week without blogging in years! I didn't update here while I was in Ukraine over the summer, but I did keep up the other blog while I was gone. I just needed a break, a mental break, ya know?

Some pretty horrible things happened last week and I can't talk about them all, so I won't even go there. Also, I was sick nearly the whole week. It just took all the wind out of my sails. It's so hard to get going once you've come to a complete stand still and you've lost all your momentum.

Saturday I got a pretty good start on getting this show back on the road. Can you imagine what my kitchen looked like? Remember I was sick and my squeezy (don't like the word hubby anymore) was traveling. Every single dish in the house needed to be washed. Guess what my least favorite household chore is?

So the kitchen is back in order. Squeeze helped me get the laundry under control today. Things are really looking up. Is there a chance that I might actually get organized? I've got some appointments coming up and others to call and make tomorrow, so I'd better get my act together.

How do I eat this organizational elephant? One baby bite at a time. Next step tomorrow...make a calendar. I have a big whiteboard all ready to go. It's my one organizational goal for the day. I'll let you know how it turns out. Maybe I'll sneak some in photos of the kids. That is what you are really here for, isn't it?
