Weekend Wrap Up

We had breakfast this morning at Bubba's with two of our most favorite people in the world--DIL Andrea's mom and dad, Marianne and Francisco.  Between pancakes, sausage, eggs, bacon, biscuits, and coffee, we just about covered everything that's happened since our last visit.  They had just returned last week from a ski trip to Snowmass after having not skied for a few years.  In fact, they were at Snowmass while Benji and Scarletta were in Denver.  We asked if they'd seen Benji's ski video set to music, made on little kid short skis sans poles, and they had not but were not surprised their SIL would do something like that.  We told them he could not stand being that close to the slopes, and not go skiing.  I'm sure they'll be going on his FB page to see his video.  There's just never a dull moment around here with our kids.

This afternoon marks the beginning of the ginormous clean out--or at least that's my hope.  One of us is a bit of a hoarder, the other is the exact opposite and I'll let you figure out who is who.  Let's just say I'll be supplying the trash bags and encouragement-- but I have some tossing that could be done as well.  There's just nothing like clearing out old stuff......there must really be something to that Spring cleaning idea.  I hate doing it but I love, love, love how it feels afterwards. 

In the latest issue of O magazine, there are several articles where Peter Walsh, the De-Clutterer, has assisted people in de-cluttering for a cause.  Brilliant idea.  If I'm not using it, why not gift it to somebody else??  There's even a contest where you can submit your proposal and if you win, Peter will come help.  I'm considering attempting The Pantry Pare-Down since heaven knows what might be in mine.  The article says it takes 30 minutes.  Clearly they have not seen mine.
