the "to do" list

here's why i have been (and might be for the next couple days--well, besides ten smile tuesday) missing from my blog....
-i'm buried...i mean buried in my closet...seriously, i should have taken a before picture. just trust me...it was a disaster...full of clothes that no longer fit (yep...those ones i haven't worn since before pregnancy with elizabeth...many of them "professional" clothes anyway...not quite my day-to-day garb for being at home with the girls...even if they did fit!). once the closet is done i'll tackle the master bathroom and bedroom!
-finishing up some long overdue picture hanging, decorating, and rearranging downstairs...i'll post some pictures tomorrow...once we get those last four pictures hung tonight!
-cleaning up the kitchen mess from the bread elizabeth and i baked this morning....and enjoying the delightful aroma of home-baked bread that is currently filling the house
-thinking, organizing, and preparing for our trip to florida...which is just a week away now! i'm so excited to head out...but just a wee bit overwhelmed by all i need to do before then!
-folding the 8 or 9 loads of laundry that will eventually be finished throughout the afternoon (5 down....3 or so to go!)...i would love to be folding them as they came out...but did i mention i'm buried in my closet!
-getting the details situated for freezer cooking friday...my friend jamie and i are planning to churn out a whole batch of freezer meals friday...we've selected recipes, but now i need to figure out a grocery list and do all of that shopping!
-kate's 9 month check-up tomorrow morning...
so much to do...so perhaps i should end my little "break" and get back to it! i promise i'll be around to visit and comment on all of your fabulous posts and lives very soon!

Wow! Congratulations on your big projects! Hang in there! My experience with taking on such things as closet control and room purging is that it can sometimes seem worse before it gets better and you start to really see progress. It's easy to get overwhlemed in the process, but you will feel amazing when you are done!!
I love your plan to make freezer meals. I want to do that sometime!
Yay for Florida! you will have a great time! I love Florida.
