Never fear!

Dum, dum dum dum dum dum, dum dum dum dum dum, da dum da dum dum (to the tune of Superman's theme). I'm also hearing the calvery's bugle, and "Underdog! Underdog!".

My sister-in-law (OK) is coming tomorrow. Or Wednesday. Either day, I don't care. She is coming to rescue me from all the children's clothing! That's right. Darcy is going to sort all seven children's clothes, put the too small stuff into bags, organize what still fits, make lists of what they need for the rest of the summer, and cart off all the give aways when she leaves. All while I put my feet up and hold my seven week old niece. Okay, well, maybe I'll make the list. I'm getting good at that these days! Oh, as if she couldn't get any cooler, she's bringing her vacuum cleaner with her so I can finally clean everything else other than my carpets! (I'm just figuring out linking to other blogs, not my own yet, so you'll have to look back at previous posts to see what I'm talking about.)

So spring cleaning will get back into full swing this week. I'm NOT doing the happy dance, but will be thrilled once it is all done. One of these days I'll get the post up that I've started about the kids and what they want to be when they grow up. But I have to get the time to finish it. Maybe once I'm done cleaning and I'm all organized and such. Oh wait. That will be never, so we'll shoot for the end of the week.

Now I have to go untangle Paulee and Terry from the contraption they made out of trucks, dolls, strollers, blankets, and something wet. Just keep focused on the help that's coming!

Yea for great sisters-in-law! Thank Darcy for me for saving you from the MOUNTAINS of clothes!!!! I am so proud of you ~ and think that you are my hero because every day you do WAAAAAY more than I do.

By the way, you can link to your previous posts the same way you do to other blogs - just save the link to that blog and enter it. For example the link to this blog is http://www.halfadozenortheother.blogspot.com/2009/05/never-fear.html

It's really simple! You are doing so great!! If I was there, I'd help Darcy and make your lists for you - on Google docs (of course!) so that you could save them to update in the fall. But that's just how I am.

Hi there...I responded to a comment you made on my blog last week and I'm not sure if it got to you. Can you email me your email address?? I sent you lots of good money-saving links. ktksu(at)cox(dot)net. Thanks!
