Things I'd like to accomplish this weekend

This weekend I will continue my battle with the clutter monster.  I started in my girls' room and I'm not sure it will be complete even after the weekend.  But here's to tryin'!

  • I would like to scrub the carpet and get rid of just about everything my daughters have accumulated.  Seeing as that last part won't really be likely until say Monday at 8:07 when they get on the bus, I'll settle for the carpets, a clean closet and possible going through their clothes.  As you can see from these photos, I really have my work cut out for me.  I have a feeling that I'm going to be drafting the help of those little pigs sweet little girls.

  • I want to make some cards, possibly some Valentines and maybe a few Easter.
  • Finish my daughter's birthday invites
  • Make some of Okie's chocolate boxes or something similar for a few "Here's a little pick me up" gift for my son's preschool staff.  It's a long story that will have to be saved for another post.
  • I need to stain to shelves for my craft room so I can put some more cartridges on them.  If all goes well maybe I can get my hubby to hang them.
What do you want to accomplish this weekend?

*On a personal note*  My mom called a little bit ago and said that my grandfather is not doing well and may not make it through the weekend.  He has been suffering from Alzheimer's for quite sometime now.  He doesn't know my mother or his other children.  He doesn't know me or my children.  I would appreciate your prayers that he doesn't suffering any longer and that my grandmother, who has been married to him for 61+ years, can find the strength to say goodbye.

I am sending good thoughts to your family. Alzheimer's is such a cruel disease.

My heart breaks to hear this about your Grandfather. My prayers are with you and your family, especially your grandmother. On another note, I feel bad (not really, but it makes me sound good) to say this but it makes me feel *soo* much better seeing those pics of your girls room! HA! They look JUST like my boys room, hehehe.

p.s. my word is "ablypep", which I am almost certainly sure is a combination diet and energy pill for mothers of small children!
