Inane Ramblings

While I have not been very good about keeping my blog up-to-date this summer, I have to brag a little and say I have made huge improvements in my housekeeping skills, as well as taking better care of myself. I'm babystepping my way to a better me. I know many of you have heard about FlyLady, and perhaps have even tried it out. I'm here to tell you it works, but only if you put your faith in her system, and just do as she tells you. The shiny sink and shoes really are important, no matter how silly they may seem. I've done it several times over the years with varying success, but this time I just did it without question, and it has worked! YEAH ME!

The other thing that has really helped me with this is that new all-purpose spray - Clorox Anywhere Hard Surface spray. I can use it anywhere on practically anything. (And it doesn't smell perfume-y - it actually smells clean!)

My new thing: homemade bagels! Yum-O! Actually I'm much more into cooking and baking in general lately. And speaking of Yum-O, Rachael Ray's 30 minute meals haven't let me down yet!

T-minus 29 days until school starts here. (Not that I'm counting or anything.) Ella will be in all-day kindergarten (which I have minor issues with, but I'm sure she will do fine with it), and Little Man starts preschool 2 mornings a week. Which gives me a precious 6 hours a week on my own!

We are getting ready for a big camping trip in a few weeks. (This is one of my sister-in-law and my deals, so there is a lot of over planning and organizing involved!) We're finalizing the menu now. We are really hoping it will be cooler up on the mountain - it has been unbearably hot here!

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
