productivity -- finally!

After getting motivated by Mamie, I am finally kicking it into gear. Last week I sent out the cute announcements that Mamie made, and I got all of my thankyou cards written and in the mail, and I got caught up on the bills...

Here's what we've done today:
Mom -- doing her laundry, and working frantically on getting the consignment stuff together, labeled and tagged for the sale. (Go mom!)
Bethaney -- Has been mudding and painting the far wall downstairs -- the last holdout to finish the remodeling downstairs. :)
Britney -- cleaning the fridge, doing the dishes, doing laundry, cleaning and organizing and putting away stuff off the coffee tables, doing meal and activity planning for all the family coming into town this weekend for the baby blessing.
Ron -- babysitting Connor & doing random handyman things around the house in between feedings (like fixing toilet seats and fixing light sockets and stuff).

But what I want to know is how Mamie is able to fold the laundry so nice and neatly? My folding never looks quite as good (especially for the underwear!!!--how do you do it?).

It's taken me about a week, but I finally got the kitchen/dining room mopped... Life changes with the kiddos, and it feels good to actually get something done - even if it's going to be undone momentarily.

my laundry folding expertise comes from 15 years as a housewife! and, half of that time folding for 4 peoples! Plus, I have to fit mucho in piqueño spaces.....

It was fun to stay with you and do all that fun stuff wit' cha!

Love your guts, sis!
