One of my resolutions for this year is to stop planning already and to just get things done, even if they aren't perfect and things need tweaking later....that's probably not that exciting of a resolution but it's an uphill battle for me! I'm really good at making plans and really bad at putting them in action.
Well anyway, I found this typesetter tray at a flea market last summer for five dollars and it's been sitting in the garage ever since, waiting for me to decide on its future (most perfect) location and purpose. I almost gave it over to the boys to house their growing collection of lego minifigures but in the end I wanted it for myself :)
Task 1 on the Getting Things Done in 2014 List: Our new nature treasures display......
These aren't technically all the boys' treasures. That rock up top is something I picked up when I was about five and living in California. I found it while walking from my house to the Burger King to get my very favorite thing in the world at the time--a soggy chicken sandwich eaten in a mock circus train---mmmmm......fine dining. I remember being really disappointed when everyone agreed that my treasure was not in fact a real hunk of diamond and not valuable in the least. But I've managed to carry it around for the last twenty-six years so I guess it had value to me :)
Henry's been busy rearranging nature treasures all afternoon and Chris is taking bets on how long it will take for the baby to crawl up on those boxes and send the whole thing to its doom. His current favorite thing to do is to climb on top of the boxes and then scream for someone to get him down because he's stuck and then repeat the process elevendy-billion times a day so the odds do seem to be against me........
I'm sure none of my children would never be so naughty as that though.
Getting things done sure does feels good :)
