Manic Monday – Somewhat Back to Normal
Not too much has happened last week that was out of the norm. We seem to be back on our usual schedules and everything has fallen back into place…finally. I was starting to think it wasn’t going to happen! Hubs cleaned out a good portion of our garage to make room for some of the extra kitchen cabinets he got so we can use them for extra storage. The only problem is that they don’t have counter tops, but he fixed it up so it doesn’t look so bad. I mean, they are in the garage so it’s not that big of a deal. I just can’t believe how much junk we got rid of out there.
Over the weekend we did our taxes. I am so relieved that it is DONE & over with. It took us almost all day to finish it and has taught me that I need to keep records much, much better. I should know this though since I’ve had to deal with this for so long. I would love to hear what methods some of you use for that.
This Week’s Goals –
- Work on decluttering routine.
- Work on getting garage back in order so I can get to the washer/dryer. (There goes my laundry routine :/ )
- Brainstorm some blog posts.
- The usual homeschool lessons – Time4Learning

I wish we had our taxes done. We haven’t even begun receiving all our forms yet!
Oh wow! I thought they all had to be sent out or received by the first of February or something. I could be wrong though. Good luck!
The garage is always a mess at our place. It gets cleaned up, then it gets messed up…not by me, of course 😉 The cabinets look great!
Oh yes, It is SO easy to just toss things out there and then they pile up before you know it! Thanks 🙂
What a great idea to use the cabinets in the garage for storage. I could definitely use more storage space.
I actually told hubs to get rid of them at first but then he came up with that and I am so thankful that he did!
Can you believe that I still haven’t done my taxes as yet. I got my W2 from the military but I still haven’t gotten some 1099s which is holding me back. I’ll probably do it some time in March. Not like I’m expecting much back if any at all which is why I’m not in a rush. 🙂
I can totally understand the waiting part then…Good luck!
Those quiet weeks when things get back in order are treasures. It’s going to be a little hectic here, but all fun things.
Hectic and fun usually seem to go together 🙂
I understand completely! I have taxes to do, a deadline at work and getting ready for a baby with all that entails!
Congrats!! Good luck with everything 🙂
