Operation: Get It Done

It’s almost spring and I have the spring cleaning fever! I love organization but having 5 children (especially teenagers and a three-year-old boy) makes it super hard to get organized and stay organized. We moved into our new house less than 24 hours before I had our little boy. Many of the things that were unpacked and put places, I haven’t changed or touched since. As I look around my house, I see so many things that need to change to work better for our family.  I made a list of most of the things I want to work on this spring and summer. I don’t have a deadline date because I feel like that would overwhelm me and make me give up all together. Instead, I’ve decided to work on one thing at a time as quickly and completely as I can. Here’s my list:

We built a new school table over two weekends and I LOVE how it turned out! We had been using a folding table and there was absolutely no room to work. This allows everyone to have her/his own workspace.
