In Over My Head - Progress Day 3, 4, & 5

Once again not doing so well...

I still need to clean both bathrooms, and pick up the toy room.

I did get the decorations up and their presents wrapped, which are semi-earth friendly. What I do is reuse a shoe box and put pretty wrapping paper on the outside of it, I do this with the bottom and lid, so all you have to do is lift off the lid. To keep the shoe box from being open too early, I tie ribbon around it, which is also use to help attach the name tag. So as long as the paper isn't ripped by the over excited birthday boy, you can reuse the box for next time. (NOTE: Use nice and strudy wrapping paper, because the cheap stuff 1)rips too easily and 2) it has a tendency to fade or get the yellow tinge to the paper. Also make sure to use good tape that will hold on good.) This year will be the second year that i'll be using my wrapped shoebox. This is a lot better than throwing the ripped wrapping paper away, but when the box looks like it's had better days, then you can place it in the recycling bin.

Sorry we didn't get a chance to catch up. I am sure there will be another opportunity. Happy birthday to the boys from the Dapelo family! :)
