Dear old "Before the Invasion" House,
I remember you; I can barley see the skeleton of the well organized, clean, a place for everything, and everything a place house, you once were. Like so many things I didn't appreciate you then. I thought nicer carpet and leather couches would make me like you better, but alas, I miss those days. Now I would settle for not having marks and holes in your lovely walls.

We doubled our home by half the people last year...with that came many donations, extra clothes, shoes and toys. We. are. drowning. in. crap.

So if ya know where I live...
My goal is to donate, half to a charity/Orphanage (I will have to pray about it) and the other, for a family trip this summer.
HERE WE GO...and just in case anybody got a match?
