After a weekend away to visit family and purchase a van for our growing family, my mother-in-law is keeping the children for an extra visit. This will be our first time alone, at home, without the children. (We have gone away overnight each year since M was born though for some time to ourselves.)
My husband is taking some time off from work. No, we won't be having a romantic getaway. We will be cleaning our basement! From the time we moved in three years ago, our basement has been nothing but a catch-all. We have gotten several shelves to organize, but all of these have been to organize Derek's tools and home maintenance-type stuff. The rest of the stuff, mostly baby items, toys, and outgrown clothes are all around. This will be quite the project. I'm hoping to get rid of lots of stuff, too, and not just move it around. We'll see.
(Gee, imagine how much easier it could be if we would only find out the sex of our baby AND if we knew this would be our last child.)
Now...hopefully while you read this we are being really productive!
