So its been a week and we're still "not quite" finished with Clara's room. We need to touch up some paint, put on some outlet covers, and I need to make her a bedskirt. I have all the materials, I just need my mom to help me figure out the sewing machine. Oh yeah, and time. That would be nice to have too. Anyway, I'm posting a picture of it anyway.

I feel like I've been going crazy lately. I always forget stuff and I have horrible time management skills. So I bought me a planner, to streamline my life. I guess you have to use it for it to work cause I've had it for almost a week now and nothing's happening. I've got to add "write in planner" on my list of things to do.

So today I've been thinking hard about my list of things to do. Its huge! I really don't know if I'm ever going to be able to check them all off. So far, I've worked out, taken a shower and done a little school work with Clara. I've been really focusing on not yelling. That's something I jump into rapidly when I get upset. So I'm trying to give and take priviledges. She's lost half an hour of Dora, a gumball, a piece of cheese, and she's been sent to her room 3 times, earning nothing. We'll see how long I keep this up.

Nolan's been good. I mean, he cries when I put him down or go to put him down or even think of putting him down but other than that, he's an angel. He's napping on me right now. So cute when you want to be napped on, not so much when you don't. Today, I don't mind.
