So the past two weeks have been good.
I'm afraid I'm going to take this to a whole new level today. Zane's birthday party is this Saturday, but I have to have the house clean and decorated by Friday because his last football game is right before the birthday party--and I'll have two extra kids at my house Thursday and Friday. So really, I need to get this stuff done today and tomorrow. My list is extensive and I should be able to do less next week, but for now...Oy. Lots to do.
Zane is having a birthday-costume party and wants to be young Anakin Skywalker. You can read about my first adventure in making his costume here. I must finish the Jedi Robe alllllll by myself today.
**Finished** Also in this picture, there are buckets on the sideboard--I have to finish those, they're the party favors.
**Finished** There's also a soccer ball pinata that needs to be spray painted silver and details added to make it look like the Death Star.
**Almost Finished** Oh, and I need to blow up hundreds and thousands of balloons and hang the decorations.

You're probably getting sick of seeing my desk by now, so I'm giving you the opportunity to feel insanely good about your house by adding the rest of the room into the picture. You'll see the books I need to send stacked as well as whatever we can all pile onto the table. We usually don't eat at this table, it's more of a craft or a project table. Since it is the first thing you see when you walk in the house, it tends to collect everything.
Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.
Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.
The project can be little or big – whatever you want. Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. (It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)
