Busy Busy

You know that secret that every one has? Well, one of mine is that my smallest room that is supposed to be for my youngest is well... piled up. You know all those clothes you can never keep up with, broken furniture the kids had a lot to do with, accumulated outgrown clothing.. etc.
I find it hard to keep up with laundry but it doesn't help when your DH just throws it in a baby bed... yeah a huge pile looks more inviting to fold than say.. 6 baskets?

We didn't have a mattress for Kailey which is how this happened in the first place. Now, thanks to my aunt Traci (thank you!) we have a mattress. So... the cleaning task had to be done. I piled it all up so she could sleep on it that night but today I just got around to cleaning the room out.

I folded 8 baskets of clothes (some just came out of the washer/dryer today) and put away 2 bags of outgrown/ out of season things. I can walk in half of it now! There is only 2 buckets left to go and ALL of our laundry will be clean.. oh and a box of socks that need matched.

When my husband got home, I asked him to take the kids out so I could continue cleaning. When he got back in and I showed him the room he said, "Yeah, that's a start." Of course I got mad..

Candi, What a busy girl!! Love your knits. My daughter Tricia (It's my Crazy Life)was looking at your blog at the same time I was, cause I told her to come look at the baby mess. YUK!! Any way, she loves the pants. They are so very cute! Are they the same pattern Kati uses?
Sorry I did not come over after you left your first comment on my blog, and thanks for linking the video. I hope you had people watching it.
Taking care of my mother does not leave me as much time as I would like to visit and blog.

Thanks for visiting back, and I understand about not enough time! This is a different pattern than what Katie uses. I have knit both patterns and they are both great for their jobs :).
