Going Under

It's the last week of school for all three of my kids this week.  Which means that it is also desk-cleaning time.  And bulletin-board emptying time.  Each kid has brought home a positive flood of stuff every day for the past few days!  Notebooks.  Binders.  Crayons and markers.  Art projects and posters and papers galore.  All of which are unceremoniously dumped onto my kitchen table by their respective owners as soon as they get home.

One day of this would be bad enough, but we're going on three now with at least two more in sight.  If I don't sort through the stacks immediately and make very heartless decisions relating to recycling, it is all over.  There is only so much counter space in my kitchen, and I actually need some of it for cooking and eating!  Starting to look like an episode of Hoarders here...


  1. I FEEL YOUR PAIN! Actually we still have 2 more weeks after this one and I'm drowning here.

  2. I've just about given up, Jennie! I'm sorely tempted to let the paper stacks win. ;)


I love comments...please share yours!

Preview, Part 2

(Or maybe this should have been part 1 since it will happen first.) We dropped Thing One off at his first sleepaway soccer camp on Saturda...
