So it's November! YAY! I love this season from now until about the end of January. At that point I'm about ready for spring but these next three months are so full of wonderful that I can't help but fully embrace them.
So first an update about my frumps to pumps journey. I've done ok. There was still a day or two in the past week that I didn't get fully dressed and just tossed on lounge clothes but I have been showering daily again which is great. It makes me feel good (and smell better lol). In fact I should be showering right now before princess girl gets up but alas it's also a peaceful time to write this blog post so I chose this. Sarah Mae's motivotionals on her blog here have been wonderful. Such a blessing to me. Here's a link to the latest motivotional and at the bottom of the post are links to the others: http://www.likeawarmcupofcoffee.com
Speaking of Sarah Mae I'm going to be tackling her 31 days to clean e-book again. I'm very excited about it. It is a deep cleaning book and starting it now means I will complete it right in time for the holidays. Won't that be nice? You can find the book and more info here: http://31daystoclean.com/
I also found a blog last night about organization. Now I've been working diligently and I feel that our house is probably 60% organized which is great because in my past it's only been about 10 or 20% organized. So 60% is a huge improvement for us. There isn't as much hunting for things. But the clutter drives me mad and whether I like it or not there seems to always be clutter here in a home with a family of 6 people. So I'm going to be reading through her 31 days of organizing and hoping I can glean even more organization prowess. I'd also love to get rid of some of this clutter BEFORE the holidays hit.

In other news I'm going to do a project with the kids to learn about thankfulness this month. Starting today I will have them eat think of one thing they are thankful for. I need to search around pinterest for a way to put them together as a keepsake/reminder for the future. I hope that this exercise will help my children to remember to be thankful more often. I know they are children and even as an adult I still have my issues with discontentment but I think it might benefit them to learn how to avoid so much discontent at younger ages.
I should also mention my progress or lack there of with the detail projects. I don't think I even did one this last week. On Thursday I somehow decided that I needed to re-arrange all of our bedrooms because of bedtime issues with one of the monkeys. So I began that. KOJ and I finished it on Friday although our new room is a mess. I'll share pics and post about the changes soon because it has affected our schooling and play areas since we no longer have a playroom. So far it's been nice. Fewer toys end up on my living floor and that's a bonus.
So join me for some of these adventures and see how things turn out in the next weeks here!
