Spring is in the Air

Who doesn't love spring? I have to say that moving to Texas and actually having seasons is a nice change from the Arizona heat. We spend as much time as we can outdoors and it shows. We are all a little nicer to each other, children are actually asking to go to bed at night, I have a renewed desire for craft projects, and I have gotten a few sunburns. It's true, I can burn in 15 minutes while my children walk away with nothing. They get the non burning part from Mike, and they get their WHITE skin that doesn't tan from me.

Most of you probably don't know this about me but I LOVE SPRING CLEANING. I have always loved getting organized. I love the deep cleaning, throwing stuff out, and then reorganizing everything. Mind you it never stays clean or organized for long, but I enjoy every minute of it while it lasts!!

I find flylady a big help. They walk you through how to organize but not stress about it. There are different "zones" set up and each week you work on a different "zone" until everything is done. It's all about BABY STEPS!! Makes my life so much easier.

So I guess I am so behind but when did you guys move to Texas? And what part of Texas?

This post could have been written by me- seriously- I must be channeling my inner-Brooke!

I too am loving the new spring season with new life starting to show on the trees. (Although- no sunburns in sight for us.)

I too am in the middle of major spring cleaning of my entire house.

And I too love flylady.

I think I can get sun burned going to get the mail! Enjoy the seasons, I'm jealous. I love the idea of spring cleaning but not the actual doing it. Oh well.

That is sad! Your spring is just starting and ours is pretty much over. It definatly hit 90+ today. Yuck! It was the first day to reach 90 something and was not nice to be outside. Oh well... what can I do. I live in AZ.

Brooke-

That is too darling what Issac said. I am so glad he has someone watching out for him, cause he's a few months early - and can't fen for himself too well yet! That made me smile!
