A confession of busy-ness

. Friday, October 30, 2009 .

Oh how the last week has flown by!  We went to Stockton (near Sacramento) for a wedding last Saturday and suddenly it's the day before Halloween!  Yikes my pumpkins aren't carved!  At least the candy is bought (and partially eaten, much to my waistlines chagrin!).
The biggest thing to slip through the cracks?  Ahh, that messy house of mine... I grabbed the clutter bull by the horns--he's a strong one--and went through the girls' toys (also #54 on the 101 list)...
Now for the scary part of the confession, here is how it looked when I started:

And to make it worse, here is the during:
I feel like a poster child for a TLC intervention cleaning show!

Here are some of the things we are boxing up for a friend that is having a baby: 
Finally, it was clean!  Of course, the girls 'helped' some.  It's not perfect, but every basket is organized & what can I say?  We have a lot of fun at our house.

Happy Weekend and Happy Halloween!  Looking forward to trick-or-treating tomorrow!
