With spring here, I always get that urge to purge and plan. I make lists. LOTS of lists. Thanks to my handy notebook, most of the list are at least in one place now. The Hubs loves it when he comes into our home office and sees a multitude of post-its scattered around the desk. In moments of desperation, he throws them out. And then, of course, I need them. Not until that moment, though. Odd.
So, I am beginning to write some lists.
There's the list of clothing items the kids will need for spring/summer. (whenever that decides to show up)
The list of what I'd like to grow in our garden this year. Last year was our first family vegetable garden. We had one squash plant that took over the little plot like a disease. We had SO much squash. I had planted green and red peppers, zucchini, and later, tomatoes. All were no match for the conquering yellow vegetable plant. So this year, hopefully with a little more planning, a better chosen spot, and NO squash plants, we should have a nice garden that will hopefully be a fun activity for the kids and I, and a way to enjoy some fresh, homegrown veggies!
The list of items we would like to use our refund/G.Bush cash for.
The list of things that could be done over time in every room in our house. We have made a decision that we need to move. If the housing market wasn't in a pothole right now, we'd probably give it a try. But time is on our side and we don't need to move, but for schools/long-term we should probably make, hopefully, our last move for long time. I actually like moving. Each time we've done it, we purge unwanted items and it has always been to a good situation. Plus, I get to make lists.
So, I'm off to purge and plan. Wish me luck!
