Amen to that, Debbie. Grrr. I'm 55 and still dealing with it. Grrr again.
Have a small houseful of kids this morning, all sleeping in, since they were up until 4am. The college freshman are returning home for the summer, and my older son, whose friends almost all graduated LAST year, is happy as a clam to hang out with them.
He did his practice presentation for his Senior Project yesterday and it went well, so I think he really needed to blow off some steam. Things are finally starting to come together in his corner, which is a real relief. He's on track for college, I got his financial aid documents together, signed us both up for orientation, just need to reserve a room - it's a 2-day orientation seminar!
Got a lot more paperwork to clear out this weekend, but my "Office in a Bag" is finally looking pretty tidy again. (See FlyLady.net if you've never heard of that one!)
DH is working on the bedroom ceiling project again, which motivates me to get some more prettifying done to the house. I'm still focused on the kids' room to help them weed out their dusty old possessions. I never wanted to be the mom that threw their toys away when they weren't looking, so periodically we all go through stuff they've outgrown and either pitch them or donate them. This time I'm moving their hardcover books out of their room. I'm keeping ALL of them, but not on constant display. The Harry Potter books can live in my room, and the others can go into a nice tote back in the storage cubbyhole.
It's funny, too. I'm usually the one who decides to hang onto some little object that they're willing to let go of because I suspect that 10 years from now they'll rediscover it and put it back out on display. So back into the storage closet go all the Pokemon and Rescue Heroes, lol!
Have a great Saturday, all!
