Ok, here goes...

This week we are going to sssslllllllooooowwwwwlllllyyyyy start back to school. Basically, our main concern is waiting on our new books (math and Latin), letting mom do some planning for the upcoming months, and doing some organizing and cleaning. Boy, do we need it bad around here. We had our big pre-Christmas clean-up, and since then, I pretty much haven't done, well, anything!

I've identified 4 areas that are negatively impacting our lives the most. First is our/my on-going struggle with the laundry. I've got laundry in my washer and in my dryer, plus one remaining basket that's dirty. I've also got 4 baskets of clean, but unfolded laundry hanging out in my dining room. Need to work on a new system, that's for certain, but in the meantime I at least have to catch up with it all.

Next on my list is our school room. It's high on my priority list with school starting back up. To motivate myself, I've decided to share some before pictures. Gulp. Here goes!

Yes, that box on the floor *is* from when we moved in 5 1/2 months ago!

Ok, I've got two other areas - my kitchen desk area, and my upstairs pantry - but I think I've got enough to do over the next few days with our "blue room" (we didn't choose this color, btw - I'm sure it will be called the "blue room" even we finally get around to painting it!) and catching up on the laundry. I will *definitely* post "after" pictures, hopefully by the end of the week. I'll also be putting down my thoughts and plans for the next "term" of school, too. It'll be a busy week!
