Holy Lord of Glory

I love Saturdays. Well, unplanned Saturdays. Where you can just stay in your jammies, and not do anything in particular. That's the best - hehehe. I was SO excited to sleep in, since I've been having to DRAG the kids out of bed at 7am the past week for school. But, at 6:30 am, my oldest comes in my room asking to play the gamecube. Hmmmmm, wonder what my answer was? GO BACK TO BED AND STOP WAKING ME UP!!! I think he got the hint - LOL! I SO don't understand kids. Sleep in. It feels good. You'll like it if you try it! I know they know that, because they try and do it all week long. Sigh. Maybe next week will be better.

But, despite the interruptions, I still slept in until 9am. I just took my blankets over my head to block out the sun (that's right - SUN!!! El Paso is WONDERFUL in the winter time. Ask me again in the summer if I'm still thinking its wonderful - LOL!) I spent a few hours on the computer, doing emails, and designing, and playing games on facebook.

Then, Tom and I cleaned my closet. I still had clothes in boxes that needed hung up. And since I just bought more hangers the other day, it was the perfect time to do it. My closet it AWESOME (I think I'm in love with it - ha!), so I wanted to spend some time organizing it. Wow, does it look good. I have all the long sleeve shirts in one spot, color coordinated. Then, on another place, are all the short sleeve shirts, color coordinated. The long dresses and such are in a different place. AND, there was a low bar where I could hang all my pants. Gotta like that.

I put my shoe box under the shelving unit, and hung my heels on the edge of the box. I must say, my kids thought that was the coolest thing they'd seen in a long time. Can you tell I shelter them - ha!

I also worked on the garage today. I cleared a spot, and put our 3 giant storage shelves out there. Usually, we use them for bookshelves inside the house. But there's no room for them in here, so I put them against the garage wall. Then, I went though all the plastic totes. All the halloween costumes had molded. I only saved the "Casear" costume. Everything else was ruined. Sigh. We had about 40 costumes in that box. Oh well.

I found some more blankets, and clothes to wash. I thought I was down to 4 loads of laundry, but with all that I found, I'd say it's about 20. Sigh. And remember, all the while I'm doing/folding/putting away laundry. Jacob and I organized the blanket/bedding/sleeping bag closet upstairs.

I started unpacking the book boxes. Most of the books had been in storage since Aug of 2007. I was SO excited to see my books again. I just love books. We have ALL sorts of books. College text books, school year books, novels, kid books, referrence books, Scouting books, church books. TONS of books. I completely filled 3 shelving units with books. I have about 5 book boxes left. I hope Captain America brings home another shelving unit. Hmmmm, can't remember if we hd another one or not.

I also organized what little food storage we have. I found my brown courderoy homemade curtains, washed them, and hung them up in my room. It matches with my bedspread, and will keep the morning sunshine out so I can sleep - hehe. It's a bit dark for the room, but I think I'll find some teal/turquoise tie backs, and it'll liven it up. And match nicely with my new bedding :) I just LOVE to coordinate.

Since we (that term is used VERY loosely) cleaned all day, I got pizza for us for dinner. I'd sold the last of the couches, so I had some cash. My garage is SO much better without the king bed and box springs, full bed and box spring, 3 twins and box spring, and 2 couches. That alone will make it look better - hehehe.

I was SO tired when I got done. Well, it was 11pm. I got a lot done for the day. I worked quite a bit, but still took time to clean and get some important stuff done :) It was a GREAT Saturday.

This WordArt request is from Jenny. She's doing a layout challenge, and needed something for faithbooking, so she requested this scripture. I thought it was great :) I think I might be doing WordArt that can be used for faithbooking every Sunday. Seems like the "sunday" thing to do - LOL! But don't hold me to that. I say "think". hehehe.

I'd kill for a 7:00 a.m. wake up time for my kiddos and school! My daughter, grade 2, wakes up at 5:45 a.m. to be on the bus at 6:30 a.m. She wants to ride the bus. If she wanted me to drive her (and believe me, I would, for the extra sleep!), she'd sleep in an extra hour...but nooooo, she wants to be a bus kid. Horrible, making little kids get up that early!

I would like to see the way your shoes are hung...you'll have to share a picture!
