I often wonder what other peoples real weekend looks like. I see pictures and posting of fabulous weekend getaways and drives in the mountains. While my family does that and gets away to local fun spots we also have just normal weekends. Why don't people ever talk about, write about that. Yeah, Yeah I know... mundane.
We had a very normal Saturday and in the aftermath of the events in Japan, in the dire heart wrenching stories and video coming through all media. It was nice to have a normal Saturday. To get caught up in the moment with my girls and The Husband.
Dropped M off at Drama and B and I went and did some shopping at a *gasp* big box store. Met up with The Husband and we had lunch at a local deli/soup place. We live in a medium size city and after years of semi rural living we're getting spoiled with having everything in reach. Good food, fun little funky stores, cultural activities and convenient shopping.
The Husband got a hair cut and the girls and I walked around a shop. M, the 5 year old had a mini melt-down at a store, yeah my kid has melt downs every once in awhile. I'd be concerned developmentally if at 5 she didn't. Was it embarrassing , yeah. But, we got over it. A few minutes hanging out in the car. Conversation about expectations of behavior and we moved on. I ran off and got my hair cut and the day continued.
Still with me? Kinda normal mundane day.
Then for some reason, must have been the mini-piles of crafts and homeschooling supplies about to take over our small combo living room/ dining room area. I decided to re-organize the homeschooling and crafting supplies.
Someday I will have a small space, corner, walk-in closet that will be my crafting studio. Where I can leave things out and decorate. Paint the walls a crazy color and hang lights. For now I have little areas.
Homeschooling storage before.
Up close pictures of the homeschooling supplies. Why? Well, because I like that sort of thing.
So What I've found most about small space living is that I constantly have to be on top of every thing that enters. It has to have a place or it has to go. In today's purge I had 2 garbage bags full of stuff to leave the apartment.
