Things I Do When I Can’t Sleep

  • I watch bad television
  • I watch amazing documentaries.
  • I read.
  • Sometimes, I write.
  • I daydream about the places I want to take my boys one day.
  • I daydream about doing a vow renewal, with a real photographer.
  • I pray.
  • I worry.
  • I realize exactly how blessed I am.
  • Hope you all had a fantastic Monday. See you tomorrow.

    21 Day Challenge

    I think I want to do this.

    I mean, it can’t hurt to get more organized, can it?

    Besides, if I do this, it will make getting things together for the yard sale we’ve been talking about since we moved into this house more plausible . . . right?

    The only problem I have is that it doesn’t have “basement” listed. That’s our biggest problem. Our basement is a nightmare right now. It’s were baby stuff and other random stuff goes to die. Perhaps we will be able to take care of that one weekend. I think it will take us more like a week, but one can hope. We need to get more organized. We need to get rid of stuff we don’t use [including all those cute baby clothes that don’t fit LB any more].

    In other news, I just clicked on this post and I think I’m in love. Though we have something like that, it just tends to be a huge catch all. If you need me, I’ll be over at that blog reading about all the pretty organizational things I’m not doing right now.

    Wish me luck. I’m going to need it.

    My Inner Cheapy Humbly Requests Your Help

    I’m looking for ways to save money.

    I’m always looking for ways to save money, but right now? I’m looking for ways to save money.

    I tried my hand at making laundry detergent today. [Thank you, BurghBaby.] It kind of clumped up in the dispenser, so I’m going to try a liquid version 3Weasels suggested.

    I am not opposed to making my own “stuff.” What are your favorite homemade things?

    We use a lot of vinegar and baking soda for cleaning, but I could use good recipes for mixtures.

    Seriously, people. I need help.
