I feel good!

Why do I feel good? Well, there are several reasons.
1) I have 5 days off in a row. That's almost unheard of without vacation. I'm trying to use them wisely and get a few things done around the house.
2) I got a big project accomplished today. We have a spare room I use for scrapbooking. The problem is, it often turns into a catchall room and everything gets tossed in it. We are having my whole family here for Thanksgiving and I wanted to get it cleaned out so there would be a room that the little girls could use to play in and maybe watch a DVD.
Here you can see the state it was in before I started:


And here is the finished project. I even cleaned out the closet! Many things were dumped and I took a bunch of things to our local charity. It feels so good to have that accomplished!

And here is #3)
After all that cleaning I found this in the mailbox:
It's a nice little giveaway package from Linda of Growin' With It. Thanks Linda - you are so sweet. It brought a nice little start to the Holidays!

Speaking of giveaways, be sure you stop here on Monday because I have one for you!

I have a whole house that needs to be organized. I have all the kids here for Christmas so maybe I'll get motivated then.

Anything special happening on Monday? Should we all start singing now?
