This is kind of a strange summer for me. I'm a teacher so I've had summers "off" for awhile now, but I've never really been "off." Before Justin and I were married I spent the summer working a part time job. I spent the following summer giving birth and caring for Logan. The next year we were between day cares so I spent the summer as a stay at home mom (which as any parent knows is not time "off"). The year after that Logan was in day care two days a week, but I had just started my Master's so any time "off" I had I used to do homework. And then last summer Logan was in day care three days a week, but I was trying to cram three months of homework into two, write nine weeks of lessons plans in preparation for my maternity leave, and, oh yeah, I gave birth again! So I've always been busy during the summer, but not so much this year. I finished my Master's in December, Gavin is in day care full time still (for the sake of everyone's sanity - an infant in part time day care is miserable. Trust me!), and Logan is in day care three days a week. That means three days a week I'm home with not a whole lot to do.
So, last week I made some health goals. And this past weekend I started working on some more "summer" goals. These goals include the following projects:
- Reorganize Gavin's bedroom.
- Reorganize Logan's bedroom.
- Deep clean and rearrange furniture in livingroom/office space.
- Clean out hall closet.
Here's a few "before" pictures just for fun!
