Whatever: The list check in

So far, February has been so much better than January. No snow (I hate snow), no missed school, no sickness and I have finally gotten my tooth started. Implant in in the 4 month wait for the graft to take and then I get my real front tooth! 
The girls and I worked on storage solutions for their rooms. Ellie is actually almost keeping hers clean. Almost. I am in need of a deep house clean (this weekend, maybe) and we are all ready for Spring. 
Thank goodness January is over!

  1. Ooo, Tanya, I like your list...and mostly, I love your updates on it! This helps me to remember that we are all works in progress, and it takes time and effort and sometimes baby steps to get where we want to go! I enjoyed reading your Jake Bugg gave your kids the coolest names EVER. :)
