    Good Morning!

    Hello all! I hope all the sick kiddos are feeling better today.

    I finally get to get out of the house today! Between sickness and snow days last week, I feel like I've been cooped up in the house for a week straight.

    Here are my goals for the week:

    1. Take outgrown clothes into a resale shop. (They've been bagged and sitting in my trunk since last Tuesday.)

    2. Make pasta from scratch for dinner one night this week.

    3. Organize and deep clean the laundry room.

    4. Buy some hanging fie storage to organize paperwork better going forward.

    5. No more yelling. Give a warning, state the consequences if they don't listen, and follow through.

    What are your goals this week?

    WOW! Your list is almost identical to mine. Except make homemade pasta. Our paper work is out of control and I was going to get a hanging file system to put in our kitchen since that seems to be where all the paper seems to pile up at. I have small desk in the office/playroom but it's so unefficient. I've been waiting for DH to make me a corner desk so I have lots of space and I'm going to put a small filing cabinet under that. And we've really been doing better parenting this weekend, we are using the same techniques that you posted.

    Good luck!! Hope you accomplish all your goals
