And from out of the Rubble

I'm happy to be awake this morning before the kids. They are slowly trickling down the stairs one at a time to investigate the chaos that was Christmas. All five of them have a big giant gift bag from Grannie to sift through. We spent Christmas morning opening presents and cleaning up a little bit before rushing off to my mom's house for dinner and present exchange.

Today we start what will likely be the first day of several in a row of cleaning and reorganizing around the house. The children's room as well as their loft tv area have been severely neglected since before Thanksgiving because I just couldn't bring myself to forge a takeover and really get things in order up there. Really, I haven't had a lot of time to go above and beyond the daily dose of just clearing a path and keeping up with clean clothes to wear every day.

I am looking forward to the overhaul of sorts because it will bring me into the new year, hopefully with a new focus to become at least a more efficient person if not a person with a few extra dollars in her pocket so to speak. Today it feels like there are books and blogs to write, photo frames to fill, rooms to organize, CDs to burn and time to do it.
