Mama's Mission of the Month - TAKE TWO!!!

Mission of the Month

As you may recall, last month I decided to participate in Mama Jenn's Mission of the Month challenge. Unfortunately, I'm not showcasing a mission accomplished button for my September mission.  I attribute this to 3 reasons....
  1. Procrastination - I should not have waited until September 29th to start.
  2. Shear Size of the Job - Wow, I crammed a lot of stuff in this closet!!!!
  3. All the excuses I said I wouldn't use really did monopolize my time (Rachel's birthday, vacation, revival)
However, my efforts weren't fruitless.  I did clear a considerable amount of things from the closet including a bag full of clothes to donate, a bag of trash, and I packed up my boys 4T wardrobe.  So, actually, my September mission has spawned my October mission.  Aside from continuing my work on establishing an orderly closet, my October mission will be to pack up all the clothes in the house according to size, season, and gender. 

I still have all of Caleb's baby clothes to the present.  I have loaned many of these out, and they don't always return to me in an orderly fashion.  Also, when news spread of our referral and Jeremiah and Rachel's homecoming, kind souls donated clothes to us.  Some clothes were sizes larger than we initially needed but so nice and in such great condition, they were definite keepers.  Needless to say, there are clothes everywhere... in the garage, in the cedar closet, in the kids closets, but not in my closet anymore :-)  The organization process has begun, and I WILL post a Mission Accomplished button by the month's end.  Be on the lookout!
