Housework…

First, I have to let you know that I have done another Bulk cooking session. This one is actually from 4/2… and this photograph is missing a serving of soup. Plenty of food! This time we did March 2013 and it was our favorite yet. I think I have a system now, so next time I plan to give a more thorough review… maybe.

I am also taking part in the Project Simplify over at Simple Mom and, well… it is a start. I don’t have any before and after pics this time because I happened to clean out all of drawers just a few weeks ago, so while I played along the difference was minimal. I am, however, getting a head start on next weeks challenge.

Hopefully, next week should be a more exciting week!

Sorry about the long absence (and the very picture heavy post) but I had an unusually busy week.

Easter was a simple affair in the morning, a quick egg hunt with our felted eggs and some simple toys. The evening was an impromptu get together with our neighbors who have a daughter nestled right between our girls in age.

This Easter I had to also practice a lot of self forgiveness. Easter dresses were incomplete. Marshmallows were never made. The sweaters were finished but had no buttons on them (it was too warm for them anyway) Needless to say I was feeling quite… inadequate. This is a reminder that we can only do what we can do. I can’t get discouraged because I failed an arbitrary deadline. And besides, the girls (and Lawrence and I) had a great time anyway.

All I can do is move forward, and when I do look back, single out the things that are worth remembering.
