I now have extra motivation to get stuff that doesn't bring me joy out of my house as quick as possible. Yesterday, Aaron and I submitted our adoption application. We want to adopt a child from Bulgaria! I'm so excited about what this journey is going to bring for us. After we submitted the application, we were given a list of pictures we need to submit of our house. OH NO! Ok, our house isn't that bad, but, with moving quickly through the KonMari method, it should make it even better.
The room I'm concerned with most is the kitchen. I'm currently in the process of repainting our kitchen. With three littles under foot and Brenda finishing up kindergarten, I've had to work on it a little bit at a time, so it's taken longer than I wanted. Let me describe my kitchen for you, because it actually is so bad right now that I don't want to take a picture for this blog. First, it was mother's day weekend, so I didn't do any cooking or dishes this weekend which means that no dishes got done. Yeah, I'm going to get on that today. Second, all the cabinets and drawers are out in the middle of the floor ready to be painted. Fun fun. I think it's going to look great. I just need to finish it. Along with continuing with going through books, that's exactly what I'm going to do.
As far as my book progress, Aaron loaded up three boxes to donate this morning. I'm also working on organizing them better. I hit a slight pause while cleaning off my daughter's book shelf. It needs a new paint job, so before I put her books away, that has to be done. So much to do!
