My Solar System Room

So, I had set up my little boy Dee Dee's room like a little solar system. I had found a Saturn wall mural for $2.28 at the thrift store. I bought some inflatable planets and hung them from the ceiling- they stunk to high heaven but I loved it! Later that night I went to check on the boy before retiring and decided I hated it. It looked too class-roomy- like an overzealous science teacher's class. Plus to a 2 yr. old it probably looked scary with all those wierd things hanging down. I had Neal cut the strings and threw the stink-balls down the stairway. I do like the big Saturn mural- I will have to warm it up with some friendly characters driving dumptrucks around or something. So far, so good! 
Have you ever loved something and then a couple of hours later just wrecked it and declared "It is NO good!"?

Time Management take that!

So...I have learned recently that having a clean, open, and fun home is easier with a few time management tricks!
#1 WRITE A LIST  oh my goodness, have you ever thought "what did I do today?" with a list you can look at it, do it, and cross it out! Yay!
#2 Make sure on your to do list, you separate it into categories..people to call, errands to run, things to buy..it helps tremendously!

This past week I have gotten rid of alot of junk cluttering up my precious square footage. I was productive...I am sure it was due to using my time wisely :)

So I have bought many organizing items over the years for my bathroom-- some of them being the suction cup type that go on your bathroom wall.

 #1 you must have a clean wall. CHECK.

 #2 You must have a very clean wall- use rubbing alcohol on it and let it dry. CHECK.

#3 Be proud of your new organizer neatly displaying your shampoos and body scrubs. CHECK.

#4 Wake up from a deep slumber to your heart racing as you wonder what just made that loud crashing noise. Was it a burglar? Did a shelf fall on my baby? Did he die from the weight? (my mind tends to go to the extreme sometimes)

 NO, it was just your suction organizer that "sucks" ) - get it hardy har har! Seriously none of them work- don't waste your money- they all fall down unless you just want to hold a razor- anything heavier and BOOM!
Tip: I use one single suction cup to hold my bath poufs- they dry off nicely and don't sit in a wet pool somewhere :)

A tour of my beautiful kids bathroom!

I have finally decided I will just blog when I can without neglecting the kids. I LOVE LOVE my kids bathroom. 99% of the time it is the cleanest spot in my home- why? because it is well organized and has no clutter. Everything that is in there has a use. It is so nice, I painted the ocean life myself! (gives self a pat on the back)
