On a roll!

Since Chris has been gone I have been on a serious organizing kick. I have become more organized in the last few days than I have in a year!

Sunday I made a list of dinners I would make for the entire month he was gone. Went to the store and bought most everything. Went to 2 more stores and now I am done.

I have cooked and prepared and portioned and froze nearly EVERYTHING to get me through the month.

And you know, it really hasn't taken that much longer.

I had dinner ready at 5:30 on Wednesday, 6:00 on Tuesday. That's EARLY for us. I like it too!

The babies are not so grouchy and are willing to try new things. That makes everyone happier.

The girls are getting into the swing of things. Remember, Caitlin just went back to public school 3 weeks ago so we are kinda still trying to get into the groove. Homeschooling for nearly 3 years made me VERY lazy when it comes to getting up early. Chris was always the early riser.

Speaking of Chris, I miss him dearly. I have talked to him a lot so that helps.

2 years ago he lost his wedding band while cleaning out our gutter during a hurricane (don't ask) and he never replaced it. I wanted to get him one for Christmas, but decided not to. Getting things for the kids was WAY more important.

He bought one tonight and sent me a picture message of his hand and his new band. Sweet. I love it.

Can't wait to see it in person.

He asked me how the coupon organizing was going. Ha! I had to tell him I haven't even started on that yet. One thing at a time.

I'm getting there... I am on a roll!

2 people had something to say:

I'm glad that you're getting so much done. That must feel great.

Hoping that the time flies by and that you are able to enjoy the special time with your kids.

Thanks Kimberly! Time goes by quickly, that's for sure. It does feel great to get stuff done. Makes my days easier too!
