isn’t it just like heaven?

those are all my baby clothes yo. boy’s on the left and girl’s on the right. all labeled in chronological order; newborn girl, 0-3 month girl, 3-6 month girl, etc. i know, it’s crazy. just to imagine buying all that stuff for one kid is kind of amazing. i won’t have to buy anything for my next four kids.

unless, you know, it’s really cute. or on sale.

anyway, it was a delightful way to spend my weekend. holed up in the back corner of the basement with the spiders. but wasn’t it worth it? previously, when doing the laundry and coming across the match to the baby sock that had been sitting on my dryer for the last month – i would think “ahha, now i can crawl up in the attic and root around in the dark to find the right box to stuff these in.” or i could throw the socks away and try not to think about the whole episode.

now i just feel so dang orderly. plus i painted the spider infested basement. the world is fast becoming a better place indeed.

    how far do you go for the boys and same for the girls. that is pretty amazing. but remember – we have to share with sarah. she thinks she is having another boy because she feels the same carrying this one. we are looking at march. and we are looking for two middle names again. any ideas

    when boy was gone in the dakotas i found something down there the size of moose. i had to go get a board to smash him with because i wasn’t sure my shoe would do the job. i didn’t tell you about that? he was right under the air mattress to. probably snuggled with you all night.

    I’ve been purging like crazy. At this point Alice’s future sister will be at least 5 or 6 years younger than her and by then I’ve decided I’m going to want to indulge myself in the girl clothes buying world again. But I have saved all my favorite stuff. Which is still probably enough to clothe several girl babies….

    sad to say i’ve never got to indulge in baby clothes buying. i realized the other day that i had never bought anything for baby girl, except her diapers. instead, i’ve got a set of mad shopping/thrifting grandmas to do all the dirty work for me. girl’s got more clothes than any one foot human should ever need. and i never get to go shopping. the agony.

    We have photographic proof of why women like the game Tetris.

    i do, i love tetris! i also like organizing mail. wouldn’t it be so fun to work in a post office? talk about job satisfaction.
    instead i chase after mad chaos all day and wipe up pee. what is this?

    By the way, love the red suitcase.

    I always get such a feeling of satisfaction when I organize something – it’s visually relaxing.

    Cool use for empty paper and diaper(?) boxes.

    p.s. What’s in the silver cans? Are they coffee cans?

    You never cease to amaze me. I am in awe of your organization skills…

    mackenzie – i know, and i broke the handle.

    sherry – diaper boxes. but i’ve started calling around to copy store to track down the paper boxes. those are sweet. the cans are food storage from my mother-in-law. good for ten years and then i have to quick find a use for dehydrated carrots. but someday i really do want to have a ginormous pantry.

    judy – it’s fun. but i get one thing done and another goes. i remember if fourth grade i would stay in during recess and rearrange people’s desks. “how can they keep their pencil box like this? this is positively immoral.” usually without their permission either.
    “mr. r! miranda cleaned my desk again!”
