Organizing and sickies.

Do you see that shine? I shined my sink today. Isn't she a beaut? I'm on Day One of the FlyLady's Beginner Steps to declutter the home. My job was to shine my sink, and I did a mighty fine job if I do say so myself. Tomorrow, my task is to get dressed, hair and makeup as soon as I wake up. And keep the sink shined. You know, my shiny sink makes me clean up dishes pretty quickly. I don't want to ruin its goodness.

My babies are sick. Including Joey.

It's been pretty hellish with Talula at night time, but they're all getting better. I think the way it works is that Mom holds out until everyone is better, then gets sick too, so I'm just waiting for it to hit me, but I'm Vitamin C-ing and Echinacea-ing myself and keeping my fingers crossed.

In homeschool news, Tania hates math even though she's really good at it, and loves history and language arts. We are learning about the Renaissance period. We got new science books and plan on getting a family membership to OMSI and the Oregon Zoo, but she's suspicious of science because it seems awfully learn-y.

Here are some pictures of the girls. Talula has become quite a ham with the camera.

Oh, we're also getting ready for Tania's birthday party! She'll be 8 years old. I can't believe it!

I don't get the emails. I heard the word on the street about them. This calendar, it sounds intriguing.
