Today while the boys napped, I went through most of my bookmarks and added them to Delicious. I tagged them by categories (for example: by type of recipe, crafts, scrapbooking, etc) You can see my bookmarks here. After I was done I deleted 125+ from my internet explorer bookmarks. My bookmarks were getting to crazy even though I different folders sorting my bookmarks. The long lists were becoming overwhelming. I couldnt find anything I wanted. I am hoping this will help me meal plan better and be able to find inspiring ideas & activities when I want them.
Do use Delicious? If so what's your username?
I love browsing blogs to find new activities I can do with the boys. They have tons of toys but seem to get bored easily and like to climb the countertops and my couch when I'm not looking.
It was a big hit with the boys. The love painting. Mom loved it because there was no mess to stain their clothes or clean up if it got on the table.
Didn't take a picture of this one but I used frozen orange juice. Very yummy. Loved that they were small for the boys. Ususally they want a popicile but only eat 1/4 of a big one. They ate the entire thing. I'll be making these again.

I bought 3 magazine holders. I wanted either white or black ones, simple ones but the ones I bought would do. My boys love Dora, so they like the boxes. (You could make them out of recycled cereal boxes too) I sorted through the papers and put away the odd items. One box for important papers to keep and file away later, one for clean computer paper and one for all the scrap papers. My boys love to colour. They know they can grab a paper out of that box to colour. The scrap paper also comes in handy when I like writing lists or my credits when I do a scrapbook page. On top of the filing cabinet is usually a jar of pens. Makes jotting things down, quick and easy.
What a big difference containing the papers did. Its been cleaning like that for close to 3 months now. If a paper our odd item is placed on there, it only takes a second to clean up again. Now if only I could learn this habit when it came to doing laundry...
