Company Girl Coffee

Howdy chicks. Come in, have a seat. I just finished a cup of french vanilla coffee, would you like some? Or, if you prefer I have tea or hot chocolate.

The last time I visited a Company Girl Friday the kid's school was holding a carnival fundraiser. Some of you asked to see pictures of the event. If you are interested click here for some pictures and information on the evening.

This morning has been a slow one. Once again I'm battling a cold, or maybe allergies considering the time of year. Either way I'm finding myself in a NyQuil fog while trying to get the kids off to school. I'm slowly waking up and plan on heading to the consignment store later this morning. A credit should be waiting for me; an Easter outfit.

Ahh, a new month of Small Things, and apparently Rachel Anne is working on a new look. Head over to check things out. On Tuesday I was all set to hand in my points for March when I realized my log was missing. So, this month, I'm hanging it on the fridge ... once I print it out.

Though, out of April's first three days I've only completed ... well umm ... I hope to complete today's, "simplify something." I'm all for the simple things in life. Yesterday's, filling up a garbage bag with donations or trash sounded like fun, but shelved this one for another day. Granted, I receive no points but I'm in the process of organizing our stuff for a yard sale in May. I already have several HUGE plastic tubs filled, plus piles of stuff in the guest bed room.

The play room will be going through a massive cleaning out, along with the rest of the house. I'm excited because all the proceeds will go towards reorganizing the play room. As the kids are growing so are their needs. We hope to put a desk in there, along with new storage items.

It has been great chatting. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm off for some retail therapy and then to find ways to simplify my day. You are welcome to stay awhile longer, or head over to Rachel Anne's for more Company Girl Coffee.

I hope to complete today's task as well. I've had good intentions with all the others so far...but good intentions don't count for points. Ah well...

Have a great weekend :)

I'm finding that there are too many complicated things that need simplifying! Maybe I need to simplify my choices...

It's fun to keep track of points, but for me the real satisfaction comes with completing each small task (even if it is a week later!).

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the coffee!

I have a LOT to simplify - like leaving town in 5 hours with 3 teens. After Rachel Anne gave me "permission", I will scale back on the snacks for the car. Things really don't have to be perfect, do they?! Have a great weekend!

I hope you feel better soon!
Can you come over to my house and organize next?

I know the Nyquil fog quite well. No fun!

And I STILL haven't put the tally sheet for April up! Where are my manners? This has been one of those weeks. Trying to simplify here, too!

I did simplify dinner and a couple of tasks, I scaled them back. Funny, but once I gave myself permission to do a half-way job on the bathroom, I wanted to clean it properly. I am sick, I tell you.

Have a great weekend!

Oh, I hope you feel better. I'm an allergy sufferer, so I sympathize with you there. This season has been especially rough.

You've inspired me to be more diligent in getting ready for our garage sale. Isn't it great to purge?!
Take care!

Funny how it's a little difficult to simplify...

Get well soon.
