Moving on Up

Okay...the "~" posts haven't died just yet!

~More fun than I thought: playing softball in the backyard with R & CJ. I'm not an athlete, but I enjoy helping my girl practice.

~More difficult than I thought: raising a pre-teen. She's recently discovered the word s*x, and has been asking me about it. Also, attitude is in full swing, and discipline is coming in nearly daily doses.

~Quicker than I thought: CJ wearing my shoes. Not all of them, but the sandals/flip flops. On the bright side, we can share cute shoes this summer!

~Easier than I thought: purging the stuff. In fact, I'm more inspired than ever since I went to the consignment store this week to get my first commission...$95!

Which brings me to my next project. I still have some small areas in the house to tackle, but the weather should be ideal for a trek into the attic on Friday. Not too hot and not too cold. I'm going to take advantage of the nice weather and the time alone to begin my assault on the multitude of boxes, plastic bins, and garbage lurking up there. I'll take and share pictures, incriminating though they may be. I'll also make sure to give a progress report on how much junk gets hauled away. It'll be like a bloggy episode of "Clean Sweep"!

Anyone care to join me?

I don't have an attic full of stuff, but I do have a basement that needs attending to. I've got one more closet to organize, before I start down there, but I'll have to take a little break b/c my MIL is comming for a week stay- and I'll be busy visiting and entertaining! BTW- I loved reading Lydia B' writting. Thanks for sharing the link!

Thank you for your recent visit. I loved reading your Homekeeping Mission.

Not sure if you've heard of it, but I recently finished doing "Passport to Purity" with the both of my girls (through Family Life Ministries). We all truly enjoyed the experience. It may be of interest to you...

Aaahh - the lovely pre-teen years. We have a 12 yr. old daughter and that eye-rolling and sighing is about to drive. me. nuts.

The pre-teen years scare me silly!

Raising a teenager is DEFINITELY way more difficult than I ever imagined!
