Did I mention I hate cleaning???

Here I am, writing a post, simply because I don't want to clean ugghhhh! I always find an excuse to get sidetracked, but if I don't put my thoughts down now I might forget. Here's what I am obsessed with this week: 1. Organizing Gia's room 2. Getting Gia to keep the room organized and 3. Real Housewife of NYC Bethenny Frenkel! I have to say I Love, Love, Love her recipes. She is always posting new ones on her blog and I am really eager to get her book Skinny Girl. I find that she is, out of all, the most frank and straight-forward.

Speaking of organizing, who on earth expects a 4 year old to keep her room clean???? I do! But it hasn't worked so far. Instead things land on the floor and everywhere and no one did it, see my dilemma. So I finally decided to browse through that book, What's a Disorganized Person To Do?, and I may have found a solution to this. I had already started sorting her stuff and getting the boys stuff out of there (some how they always crawl their way back into her room), and putting them in cubbies. Still with the cubbies, they take one box out, then another, then another and before you know it everything is out!!!! Well I had used closet organizers in her closet and the boys', and I am thinking of recycling those into a desk system, with wire shelves, and a wooden shelf for the desk part of it. Besides, those closet organizers only lead to them making a bigger mess in the closet. I just don't get it??!!! Wish me luck, I am going to need it. Here is a picture of my inspiration. I already have the track system and the wire shelves, now I just need the desk shelf and chair.

So out of my better judgement, I was too tempted and couldn't hold onto those Overstock gift cards and ordered some clothes. I figure I'll give it a try, if anything I can always return the stuff and hold onto the credit for a future purchase right??? I'll let you know how it goes when the order arrives =)

I have a busy week coming up, work!! But I will blog one of these nights, I have to show pictures that I took of my garden. I have little tiny baby cucumbers, and I am just in awe. It's amazing, I check on them every day and every day there's something new! I love to watch nature and things take their course.

Thanks for reading all my ramblings as usual, and until next time.
