Energy spurt, then a slow down

As I mentioned earlier I'm in nesting mode! Fun! Loads of things are getting done around here, AND we're having fun too! Inspired by this post, I finished up some spots that really needed to be cleaned up.

With all of the de-cluttering I've been doing our upstairs landing seemed to have become the resting place for quite a few things that needed to go downstairs or just get out of the house!
It took me less than 30 minutes to get this all in order (and get everything where it should be), and boy did it feel good! The suitcase has another home, but it has been used so much (and is going to be used one last time soon) that I just can't bring myself to put it back and pull it out again with my big belly in the way. So it will stay here a bit longer.

This closet had been the drop off/holding point for some things that we were getting rid of. Not everything made it out. To make matters worse some of the kids had been playing in there, so there were all sorts of random pieces of sets in there. It took me about 20 minutes to clean this out (and put everything where it should be) and what a relief it is to have that done! (the bins on the shelves hold holiday toys, books and decor. Only one bin per holiday. The telescope was a gift from my dad, which does not get enough use due to our often overcast skies. :( We should have better luck with it in Arizona!)
I was so excited to be getting so much done on Saturday, and I was looking forward to seeing what I could do this week. Monday found me dragging and muttering about allergies flaring up. By Tuesday afternoon it was obvious that I was sick, most likely that mild cold/allergies I had been dealing with the week before had lead to a sinus infection. :( NOTHING got done on Tuesday or Wednesday except nursing myself back to health with plenty of sinus irrigation (YUCK, but it works!), and naps. By Thursday morning I could tell I was on the upswing and while I was still a bit slow I felt much better! Books got read to sweet little girls, banana pops were made with a bouncing little boy, and we all felt so much happier!

I'm linking this to Organizing Junkie today!
