Too much I know....

So I told you I was going to try and be better about this....Twice in one day! I have a mile long to-do list and I haven't felt like I have gotten anything hardly accomplished on it, but I think I made great strides this afternoon. I went through all of Rose's clothes and seperated her closet into what she could still wear (24 month and up, some 18 month clothes still though...). I can't believe how many clothes this little girl has! And how many she has never even gotten to wear...which only goes right back to the livestye of living more frugally that Bodie and I are trying to start doing. Maureen, Randi and I are having a yard sale on the 23rd of the month and I know that baby clothes usually sell really well, so I'm thinking about going through her bins (yes she has 3 extra large clothing bins - 0-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months chock full of clothes!) and getting out some clothes to sell. Bodie said go for it, so we will see.

I also got mine and Bodie's bathroom cleaned (and I mean cleaned - sink, toilet, and bathtub! Woo hoo for me!) - which for those of you who know me, you know how much I love cleaning so getting all of this done is a big accomplishment! Especially considering I didn't hardly even get started until around 3!

Sox (our new puppy) did really well about using the bathroom outside today - no accidents inside! I am amazed at how smart she is! Rose is still not completely sure of her at times...she loves Sox when she can pick her up and torment her, but not so much when Sox jumps on her! I don't know that I completely blame her because those puppy teeth hurt.

Last thing for the evening I got half the tree beds in the back yard sprayed with Round-up. I know this pretty much goes against every environmentally friendly thing I am trying to accomplish, but I just cannot stand weeds taking over my beds! Any ideas on a "green" method for complete weed eradication? We are going to look into the company around her that does "green" yard work and see if it is something that we can swing...we will see. Met the neighbors, they've got two younger kids - as do a lot of families in the neighborhood, which is really nice! - and they seemed super nice!

I did put new batteries in my camera and will hopefully be able to upload some pictures soon...got some cute ones of Sox and will hopefully have some nice ones of the house for everyone to see!

I have to use my round up too everywhere except where my herbs and veggies are. I guess I am just too lazy to pull all the time. If you find something else let me know.

I'm going to look, I've heard of somethings (we used to carry them, but I never tried them) and I may seriously try to switch once I get the weeds under control. But I have got to get a handle on them before I switch to something that I'm not sure will work.
