First of many


Graduations that is...

Last night was very special for Nini and very emotional for me. She graduated PreK singing "God Bless America" right in front of 200 or so people. And I stood there taking pictures and wiping my eyes. Boy, these milestones are coming at me so fast that it hurts.
My room is still waiting for planks of wood and then I'll take pics and post. Its so not fancy, but useful. I'll also post some sneak peeks of Cocoa Daisy June Kit. Its Fab!!!
Now I have to think up a memorable gift for my 4-year-old grad.

Mission Organization: ACCOMPLISHED

Ahhh!!! RELIEF...

I had cleaned like crazy and now I can see my floor!!!

The cabinets we had looked into didn't quite suit our purpose, so we built our own simple units and that houses my paper and albums and I am satisfied...

now the challenge is not to buy unnecessarily and to maintain the system...

We will be adding a few more shelves, but more or less I'm done and now theoretically I should get my mojo back now that the clutter is gone!

Now for the floors and stairs... that's so not in my control. Its unbelievable what was promised to take 4 days is incomplete even after 4 weeks.

Now I need to redo Nini's room, the master bedroom and the walk-in closet... a tall order, but hoping to get done in a week.

Meanwhile we changed our service provider to FIOS... we had their service for over a year and now added a few more with enhanced service. Lets see how that works.

I havent scrapped or blogged or even surfed the net for days now... but, I did garden a bit. Trimmed my succulents and made trips to Home Depot for soil, fertilizer, wood and what not.

Home Depot trips are always so much fun. Saw a new light there... its gorgeous!!!

Its almost done

... Yep, the stairs are almost done. Hopefully, they'll finish today. Then we want to spend the rest of the day at Busch Gardens. A little bit of grocery to be done and then a lot of cleaning... there's dust everywhere, the laundry's a mess... once things are put back to their normal spots that will free up a lot of floor space. Then it will be Windex time. So, that's where the next two days are gonna go. We are also thinking of getting some cabinets for the scraproom. And hopefully... finally... I'll be ORGANIZED!!!
