Typical week here...glad it's not as cold as it normally is around this time of year here. And with our new house it is alot warmer in general. The living room gets TONS of sunlight is really toasty in the afternoons :) Since my biggest complaint about our old house was how cold it was, I'm a happy girl *smile*

Have you ever assumed your kids know certain everyday things only to find out they didn't? Living in Japan ny kids don't experience all the same things kids their ages would in the US, and I realize that. But I was totally surprised when Nana said they were having lasagne for dinner and my kids had no idea what it was!!! I know, I was just as shocked lol. What kind of a mother am I not to give my kids lasagne in the first place?I mean, they eat squid, octopus and seaweed, but don't know what lasgane is.... I spent close to 5 minutes describing it to them. I think Leah, who loves everything was sure she would like it, while Rhys was not so quick to be sure he would like something new. ( I mean, there might be veggies chopped up and hiding somewhere in it.)So now lasagne is on my list of things to make in the next couple of weeks :) So has that ever happened to you?! Or is my family just weird...

It's the beginning of a new week, and Mondays are usually good for me. I know I mentioned a little before about my 2010 (which is it btw, "twenty-ten" or "two-thousand-ten"?) new goals. For me most of them might not really be "new", but continuations of things I kind of started at the end of last year. One of the main ones has to do with cleaning :) I'm the youngest in my family( the ever-so-slightly-spoiled-baby)and organization and such does not come naturally...and well, Tomio is VERY neat :) SO, I have been working at keeping things neat and tidy all the time...you know, so you don't have to feel like you have to throw your whole room into a closet when the doorbell rings :) I've been trying to raise my standards so to speak. Now I've been doing it more in steps than all at once so I won't get overwhelmed or burned out. And I can honestly say I can tell a difference. My bathroom closet is SO neat now, I actually like opening it and seeing how nice it looks lol.(yes, I am weird.) Oh, and my scrapbooking space is SO tidy too. I realized how much I enjoy working in a tidier place heehee. And I can honestly say that there are no toys or dust bunnies under my sofa, and if you crawled under my bed you would not get covered in dust :)These may not seem like huge things, but to me they are a big deal.I'm proud of myself and inspired to do more. And that's a good thing.
