New Beginnings

School starts in 2 weeks and I am really looking forward to it. Not that I don't love being with my boys and not that I don't love sleeping in and being able to stay in jammies all day (some days). But I am excited to be in some kind of routine again. Plus, I think my kids do better with structure and I pretty much suck at implementing structure myself. So, the school year is good for us.

Dylan and Logan will be in the same school this year so that is going to save me about an hour of drive time a day. PLUS, it will save money spent on gas. All good things!

In preperation for the new school year..I am trying to get my self and my home in order. Yesterday I scrubbed the kitchen--removed everything from the counters and really cleaned everything good. Today, I scrubbed the dining room. All clutter is gone, cobwebs removed, furniture wiped down, windows clean. I do still need to do the the kitchen too. I figured I will do all the floors at once. Tomorrow I plan to tackle the living room. Then Friday, the bathroom and then next week on to the bedrooms and play room. Then we can start school with a fresh start.

I know that I am always talking about getting the house clean and keeping it clean and starting fresh...blah blah blah. But I am hoping that this time it sticks. I think that I and everyone in my home would be feel better if I could keep things in order. I have a very strong desire to be a better mom, wife, friend, daughter, housekeeper. I am really hoping that this round of "bettering me" does in fact make me better.
