I worked all day on Thursday, trying to get things organized. It is amazing how sidetracked I get. I need to learn to stick to one project and not move on to something else. I got one of the laundry closets done as well as the boys bathroom closet. I moved all of the twin size sheets into their closet, since that is closer to where they need them. I will eventually get this house in order.
My two youngest boys are at camp this week. I will really miss them, but I know they're going to have a great time. I have wonderful memories from camp... the same camp ground that the boys are at! I think it is so cool that they are there, experiencing the same place I did at their age.
Below is my vision board. (For you Sheila!) I made it to remind myself of what I want and what is important to me. I keep it in a place that I see everyday, so that I will think positive and work towards my goals.
I had a lot of fun making it... I love being creative. Oh, and the mattress that is on there... I got it! AND I am eating healthy & exercising. I'm getting organized and I read a lot of good books. It's fun... try making your own vision board.
Church was awesome today. It was an old time Pentecostal service this morning. God is so good.

This is a picture of the wall right behind my desk. The hooks say PRAY and HOPE.
Thisis a little table I found at Ross for $10. I love pictures! It makes the office more homey.
Well, I am going to go and rest and try to figure out what to wear to work tomorrow. I can't wait to have some of this weight gone... eating clean is the way to go!

I have decided that I am definitely a sidetracked home executive. I start one thing and then see something else and start that... and on it goes! I have sooooo many things I want to do and I try to do them all at once! (Organizing, quilting, sewing, reading) Last night I made Kinzie a headband. It is made from felt (the flower not the headband). I think it turned out cute...I went to Wal-Mart and got a pattern and some fabric to make a simple apron. I love aprons and do not own any. I got a pretty black and white floral print and a Mary Engelbreit black with red cherries print. I cut out the pattern but am not sure where to go from here. LOL... I will have to wait for my "mom2" to come over and help me on Thursday. Over the weekend I sewed a really cute curtain for my office at work. It was actually a shower curtain that I cut to fit the space I needed to cover. My Shabby Chic office is looking very cute. Bobby is gonna love all the pink when he comes to work with me! Oh well, I was there first. =)
