We spent most of the week at home due to sickness. Cate actually acted like a normal kid and laid on the sofa quietly for much of the time. She is back to her feisty self and beside herself that Si is getting all the attention now. He is miserably sick and hasn't been sleeping well at all. Thursday he was up at 2am and didn't go back to sleep all day. The kid needs no sleep. Earlier in the week, I tackled the junk box and the activities closet. One of the big things in the junk box was a broken iron. I found a small appliance repair shop that was willing to take it for spare parts and thus saving it from a landfill.
I almost cleared my email box today so you might have heard from me. I should be doing the big things like taxes and applying for Silas' citizenship but clearing clutter on-line and in my house is so much more fun. Sorry, I know this might be boring but it thrilled me to get some things organized.
Here are a few photo updates.
The activities closet is so neat. I always feel certain it will stay this way but it eventually returns to chaos. I might label the bins for easier cleanup.
The now empty cupboard that I merged with the activities closet. :)
I also organized the closet that holds all the materials for reuse like plastic bags and shipping materials. Also reusable shopping and produce bags. I keep the few cleaning supplies I still have in here. I always keep a bag in here for Goodwill donations. The pink bag is full of donations from the junk box.
And finally, one cupboard that still needs some attention and where some odd but useful bits went from the junk box. I'm sure Si will be up very early tomorrow morning. I'll work on it then.
