Hello Monday! How was your weekend? We spent Saturday cleaning out and organizing the garage. It was so nice to get everything out, the generator and snow blower turned on, and everything (almost) organized.
We bought 2 new sets of shelves to organize with. One for outdoor gear (not shown) ie camping gear, canoeing gear, fishing gear, beach umbrellas and coolers. We are keeping tents and sleeping bags inside the house but everything else is going in the garage in one easy to find location. The other shelf is for sports gear (pic below). On the top shelf we have our folding chairs, followed by snowboards (helmets and boots in inside the house), misc stuff that needs to go bye-bye, balls, baseball gear. Love the fact that we can see what we have and grab what we need without wading through other items. Sidenote: How did we accumulate so much stuff?
Sunday, we attended 9am mass, always a challenge with a tween and a teen in the house. Right after we headed to a friend's for a pig roast but not before stopping into Jordan's sleep lab to try out and bought a mattress. And yes my kids were sprawled out on a mattress playing on their iPhones while waiting for us...good thing we were the only ones shopping for a mattress and actually bought a set. The pig roast was yummy. On the way home, we decided to stop in on some friends and were so glad they were home. We haven't seen each other in over a year (even though we only live 30 minutes away from each other).
