Sad but true

What to do about shoes?? Help!!

Why is it so hard to keep kids shoes in one place? My kids usually leave their shoes on the floor
somewhere around the door coming in from the garage. Drives me nuts! But when I do stay on top of them they at least make it to the closet by the door. I have these plastic put together shelves with a metal bar. I hate them. The shoes fall off and the shelves fall apart all the time. I was looking on pintrest and found some great ideas. This was my FAV. I have 4 kids, so this would be great. I need to take a trip to the goodwill and make this happen! Wish me luck.
What shoe system do you use?

Ok this is BIG sis and here are my resolutions

Ok I know I know it is already the 8th and I have not started because um well hmmmmmmmm well just because time flies and I hadnt seen my sisters so now its on.
Ok here we go and I really really want to do this so I think I need to post it EVERYWHERE IN THE HOUSE.
- Read to my girls at least 2 times a week
-Sit down to play with my boys for at least 20-30 minutes 5 times a week.
- Lose 30 pounds
-Read my bible daily and pray more.
-keep my NEW organizer with me and check it daily before the day starts.
-Take my vitamins DAILY
- Stay Focused
-Take better care of myself so I can take care of my kids.
- Take more pictures and video of kids
-Have on family night a week that is special.

Ok there are a million things I want to do and want to change but this is a great start and things I really want to do. I really need the stay focused to be # one.
To all of you mamas dont be so hard on yourselves. We all do the best we can and as long as we are trying that is what matters most.

Happy New Year! Let's make this a awesome year. I have a list of things I would like to accomplish this year. I don't think of them so much as resolutions but more like trying new things and actually doing things I have been doing and sticking to them. I have a list started and will print it and put it on my fridge and put it on cell phone for a reminder.
BRING ON 2012:
-walk with the family 3 times a week
-cut back on sugar
-build my tanning business
-workout 5 days a week
-run 5 miles
-organize craft cabinet
-do at least one craft a week
-help out in Mia's class at least twice a month
-take more pictures
-video the kids more
-date night at least once a month (even if its just watching a movie alone on the couch after the kids are in bed)
I would say this is a good start. I will be adding more I'm sure. It's Monday and I'm off to a good start. Have a great Monday! Let's do this!
