The weather reports sound great! Let's hope the weather is relatively accurate for a change. Looking forward to reading more plans!

Relatively accurate would definitely be good!

I'm not sure how many more plans there are, although I could go in depth into the food I plan to eat and the shopping I plan to do.

That would be two more separate posts, and get us into the single digit dance!

Ohh..your weather does sound great! Almost too great.. I would be happy with 70's on our trip, 80's would be pushing it! Unless we're in the middle of a blizzard at home, then I wouldn't mind. I'd def pack a few different types of shoes, from the sound of it.

Woohoo for re-organizing. Your plan sounds really good, I'm crossing my fingers that your dh goes for it, though I have a feeling he will! Glad you're feeling better

Oh, I'll take the 80s and I'll love it!

Honestly, I'll just be so glad to get away from freezing cold, wind that bites right through you, and snow.

I think so too. I tested the waters with my ideas tonight, and he seemed amenable.

I'll wear him down, I will.

I totally understand loving where you live and not wanting to leave. I'm sure there are after school solutions in your area. Have you looked into the Y? In NYC, the Y runs a number of afterschool programs and even picks the children up at school. Plus, the kids aren't just playing. My students have taken guitar lessons, learned to knit, and have had swimming classes.
I love the bookcase for toys, etc. You'll definitely maximize your storage space.

I have two of those fabric storage units and I them. They came with my livingroom furniture. I keep DVDs and Wii games and controllers in there. They are so much more practical than a coffee table.

You're going to have great weather!

I'm sure your DH will agree to a flat screen.

Your re-organizing ideas sound practical and nice looking too! I'm so glad your mom is helping you out, and I have a good feeling about your DH seeing things your way!

Isn't that sweet about her sending you all those pretty pictures; only one missing that I can think of... Where's the man of every hour?

Weather?? I'd pack flip flops, but tut-tut, sounds like rain, too. Are you planning on taking something more rain worthy??

I sure hope that the weather is great for you TK. I hope you get to wear your flip flops the whole time you are there.

I am sure your dh will agree to a flat screen. I want one too but first I want to go to Disney. I am trying to save enough to upgrade to WL. I hope you will post pictures once you are done streamlining your home.

The funny thing is they are actually in the process of building the Y in my town! So it's not an option yet, but I'm really hoping it will be in the future, and it's definitely something to keep in mind.

Right now all of my son's Transformers are in a laundry basket under our coffee table. I can't wait for them to go in something and be hidden. I don't have a problem with kids having toys, you know what I mean? I just want some of the spaces in our home to look more adult.

Especially considering that in a few short months my bedroom will be turning into baby central.

Weather is looking good! I can't wait to check it this morning.

I'm thinking we'll probably wait on the flat screen until next month, since I spent a bit on all that organizational stuff for the apartment.

HA! Well, I hope not, anyway, there are some thunderstorm forecasts, but I'm not too worried. Have poncho, will travel, that's my vacation motto.

That was a rather obvious omission, huh?

Oh, for sure. I have a pair of closed Merrell Mocs, and I'm thinking I'll be taking those with my walking socks, then a pair of more closed sandals, and a pair of (optimistic) flip flops.

I love your new countdown ticker!!!

And I will definitely post pictures of my mad organizing skills. Or craziness, as the case may be.

Thanks, I was tired of the old one. Now I just have to leave it alone because once it starts to move I won't want to send Mickey all the way back to the beginning. I don't think anybody who is organized is crazy. I wish I were more organized. That is one skill I just keep trying but don't seem to do very well on.

Oh, that Mickey is too cute to go all the way back to the beginning!

I do think that once I know what I'm having, I will change my pregnancy ticker, so that will be a bummer to watch it go all the way back to the beginning, but oh well! I know how far I've come.

The problem is that I go through bouts of organization with intermittent periods of sloppiness. Sounds like the weather. LOL Anyway, my key issue is consistency. I must learn to be consistent!

It is always hard to see the ticker start all over again. At least with your pregnancy ticker you know that your date really can't be postponed all that much.

That is my problem to being consistent. I usually do pretty good for about a month then I start slowly going down hill again.

That's the thing, this baby is coming when it wants to, countdown ticker or no.

Me, too, but I think knowing that there's going to be a whole other person here is really going to kick my butt into gear.

Sounds like your handling everything on your plate okay. Be sure to get lots of rest to help fight off that cold/sinus problem. I think this has just been the winter for illness. I hadn't been sick in 10 years, but this weekend I started coming down with cold number 4. Seriously, I've had enough!

Good luck with the organizing. This year I made it my resolution to de-stash and organize my place as well. For someone who lives alone I would have plenty of space if I didn't save practically everything. I have a bad habit of keeping things because I may possibly need them one day, or because it was a gift. This year I'm getting rid of it all. I want to be able to open my closets without things falling on me. So far so good, but dealing with my out of control yarn collection is going to be a bit harder to deal with.
