Another crazy day. I haven't damaged any children yet, but the day is still young! I think my day seems to go better when I get every last dish washed the night before and wake up to a shiny, smiling sink (ala flylady). School has started out very slowly today, but Monday's are always like that because of the busy day at church (where I work as the Preschool Coordinator) on Sunday.

Over the weekend, I cleaned out closets. I managed to put together 4 large boxes and one bag of items to send to Goodwill, along with two boxes and 3 bags of things that just needed to be trashed. Loren (dh) and I also continued to work on his sister's bedroom downstairs. That was another 4 large bags of trash and another box for Goodwill that I cleaned out of my parents things they had stashed in that room. Loren, meanwhile, busied himself with hanging sheetrock.

It never ceases to amaze me how much stuff we have piled into this house. I send Loren off to Goodwill with a pickup truck load of things about every other weekend, and we still have stuff up to our eyeballs! Where does it come from? I think the junk is multiplying like little rabbits intent on repopulating the place. And with 10 people in our house, it isn't any wonder!

Anyway, I think that Monday should be our day of rest. That's what our Senior Pastor does, and it makes sense to me. Sunday is just about the busiest day of my week! But on Monday, there's still homeschooling that must get accomplished. So I guess I'm back to the hypothesis that I've held to for several years now (well, ever since baby 5 came along): "I can rest when I die!!!"

So much for me feeling like I can't rest! I have 0 children so I guess I shouldn't complain. :)

Good thing they are so stinkn cute and sweet!
