Week 2 of Houseworks Holiday Plan was a little tricky. Between the kids having both Monday and Tuesday off school, and Gracie being home sick Thursday and Friday, I don't feel like I got a lot accomplished.
One thing I did check off the list, which feels great, is cleaning out the kids art supplies cabinet. It is really just three shelves of my pantry, but had been crammed with partially used paper, dried out markers, and the stray can of beans that wouldn't fit on one of the higher shelves. I pulled it all out, pitched an entire trash bag worth of junk, and organized it into one big bin and one shelf for paper, books, and kits.
Week Three is Me and Mine Week. It is a huge week with lots of important tasks too important to skip. The big clean is the Master Bedroom. I don't know if you're like me, but that's always the last room to get any attention. I love this week because my room finally looks loved, but it is a huge amount of work!
The other big job is to inventory the gift closet and wrapping supplies. If you send holiday cards, you have a lot to do this week as well. I will have to discuss whether we want to stick to our resolution from last year not to send them to anyone with an email address, or if we are going to cave to peer pressure and mail them again. The waste of paper kills me, but I do love getting pictures of my friends' kids. Decisions decisions!
