This Will Make You Appreciate the After

I cannot believe this was only our first week of summer break! It seems like we've been off for a long time. I guess that's a good thing since it's nearly JULY already!!! I cannot believe that. Summer is going to fly by.

Towards that end, I have been purchasing some things for next year already. The big order to Sonlight will be made next month, I suppose and I'm not looking forward to parting with that money.

Before all these new books and curriculum parts come pouring into my house, I need a place to PUT them. So I guess it's time to start working in the ol' homeschool room. It's so lovely right now with it's half-done shelves and table piled high with stuff and the entire closet full of junk that who-knows-what I'll do with. I kind of hate to disturb it's loveliness.
 I KNOW! Open House was only a week ago!
Huh. The closet door won't really even open. 



Oh look! A glorious neat spot!!


I have my work cut out for me.

At least I'm not painting and switching rooms this year, huh?

Now accepting applications for help. Anyone out there love to organize?

Also the sewing room is a wreck. As usual. Need to get in there and get that organized. And even I will not post pictures of that space. It seriously looks like we've been robbed. I'd like to work on the girls' quilts for their beds and I can't sew on those until I get the sewing room organized.

S is home from being out of town all week and I couldn't be happier. We stayed very busy while he was gone, but I still didn't like it. Very thankful his travels were safe and he's back home where he belongs.

Well, I'm off to put my money where my mouth is and go DO some of the stuff I just so easily typed up. Knowing I can post "new and improved" photos next week is very motivating!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh my! Maybe working in some "organizing time" into your school schedule would go a LONG way in keeping it up? Maybe make a summer study of ways to organize? :0)

    Maybe check out this link to find your organizational style...

    (I don't know anything else on this site, so don't think it's one I frequent. Just found the link and thought it might be helpful.) Can't wait to see the after photos!

  2. Oh Julie....this mess is not from our school year but from a big rearrange a few weeks ago! Oh dear. I doesn't get anywhere near that bad during the school day!

  3. I'll come organize! I LOVE to do that. You'll pick up the flight tab, right? :)

  4. Well, I didn't think it did...haha! I would hope not anyway! :0) Rearranging things always takes a bit to recover from. And I would come help too...but I'm so far away! I probably missed a post or two in there


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
