I had grand plans to work on photo editing last night after the kids went to bed but instead, I had to spend my evening getting organized. FOR KINDERGARTEN. I pretty much blame every parent who reads this who has kids older than mine for not warning me HOW INSANE the paperwork for kindergarten is. Add in TWINS and things are even more insane.
(I filled out FOURTEEN field trip permission slips yesterday. And 8 field trip lunch order forms in duplicate.)
So I set up a little school organization system in our kitchen. I took crap pictures with my iphone because it's been that kind of week.
Up until now, we had been using a monthly calendar to manage things. But after a month of kindergarten, it was clear we needed a bigger calendar. So I switched us to a weekly calendar. Here's our next week, actually a pretty calm week.
I can not tell you how much better I feel after a night of getting things in order, with everything having a home and a system. Before this, our entire side counter would be covered with piles. Now it is back to exactly how I like it. Clean and organized.
And you can go ahead and judge my "sad empty" fridge doors... but the reason they are sad and empty is the two long drawers under that counter are junk drawers. #1 reason I love this house: INSANE STORAGE.
