I need to finish out my posts on my spring cleaning... heck, i need to finish my spring cleaning.
There's lots of great stories about the girls from the past few days.
There's lots of planning for playgroups, crochet groups, project groups and other such stuff to post about.
And I also need to figure out what goes where as far as my two blogs go. The family blog vs the mommy blog.
Lots of posts to come now! I'm excited! You should be too!

Oh, and my kitchen, I cleaned and organized it alot too today. All my cabinets, pantry, cupboards, fridge, sink... It's spotless, atleast it was earlier.
I've been digicropping here at Wendee Truman's house tonight and if you haven't heard about Heritage Makers yet, you should definately check it out. I finished two books tonight and I'm crazy excited to get them in. :) It's too much fun.
Anyways, I'm sure I won't get much done tomorrow on the Spring Cleaning. With work it's hard. But we'll see. Til then!

I finally realized that Spring cleaning is more about decluttering than actually cleaning. And I'm a pack rat, so decluttering is not something that comes natural to me. But, I have decided to dedicate this next week to "Spring Cleaning." I'm going to go through our apartment, room by room, and declutter, getting rid of what is not needed, unnecessary, and has no value to us... really.
My problem is that I do attach a bit of sentimental value to things that really shouldn't have any. For instance, I still have notes from some of my best friends from high school. A couple of these people I'm still friends with on facebook, but I honestly haven't seen them in a good 7-8 years and those notes are probably all about how in love I was with some boy. So what's the point in keeping that? I don't know.
I also keep cards. Birthday cards, christmas cards, anniversary cards, valentine cards... I keep them all. I don't know what to do with them, so they're all in a box in my closet. Well, they're going. Most of them anyways. The ones with meaningful messages and happy memories, I'll keep. But the "Merry Christmas, Love The Soandsos" are getting trashed.
I save tons of my girls things. Especially colored pictures. I have a huge drawer full of them, and they need to go. I'll keep some of them, but I probably have a few hundred just sitting there. I'll make a little scrapbook for them, but the rest will go.
At the end of this week, I'm going to try and evaluate my progress. Hopefully I'll have a big ol box of stuff to toss, giveaway, or sell, and our apartment and lives will be less cluttered with junk and more full of love (cheesy moment!) :P I can't wait to be Spring Cleaned!

The Y has been such a blessing for our family. Taylor had her first swim lesson today and did GREAT. It won't be long before she's a little fish. And She'll be in camp little y this summer. She's really come out of her shell since we've been coming here. She'll talk to just about anyone now and has made tons of friends. We all have. Maddie's got a bunch of little friends her own age here... and she acts like she owns the place. It's great.
I really enjoy all the programs and classes. They really are wonderful and I would recommend a membership to ANYONE. :) it really has been great for us.

Her nose immediately started bleeding and bled for a good 20 minutes atleast. The bridge of her nose swelled up and bruised. I couldn't believe there wasn't anything else wrong with her. She has a tiny bit of bruising on her side, but that's it.
I think that's the most blood I've ever seen come from one of my girls. I handled it much better than I ever thought I would. I guess those mommy instincts kick in and you just do what needs to be done.
Anyways, Maddie is fine. Still has blood coming out of her nose a bit. But it's dried up now. I don't think there's any permanent damage and I've very grateful. It could have been much worse.
