Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a year since I last blogged. I've been formulating posts in my mind, but I think life got in the way. Also, I don't keep a working computer at my house anymore.

If you haven't figured it out by now, my 6 yo son is quite the character. He loves Legos and stickers...in that order. I usually find stickers all over his room, but this morning I really took notice. We have ten foot tall ceilings, and the top of his window sits at eight feet.

Ok, it's 11:30am, and I'll admit I haven't started the Fly Lady challenge. Don't count me out though! All I'm supposed to do on Day One is shine my sink. I did get dressed to the shoes and planned my dinner menu for the week. We didn't get in until about 10pm last night from a short weekend … Continue reading Day One of the Rest of Your Life
