I had a nice quiet weekend: kidlet's at my mom's house, husband is at a Ruby on Rails (cool programming tools) conference. Teenboy has a cold, so we hung out and made crepes and watched some Babylon 5 together, which was nice.

So I was inspired to tackle the giant pit of chaos that is the kidlet's room. OMG. So. much. stuff. I was pretty brutal in getting rid of things, especially stuffed animals which she never ever plays with. Major improvements, the floor is now mostly visible! No blockage of her dresser drawers! Nice donations for the local family shelter! Trash to go out! I'm so out of shape it was like running a 10K race, I'm all hot and sweaty and floppy. Wish my feet didn't hurt when I go for walks. I'm looking into local swimming pools.

Am resting now.

I'm also slowly getting back to reccing, mostly Lotrips, with the odd Firefly fic. Recs are at http://del.icio.us/msilverstar, the feed is at http://syndicated.livejournal.com/msil_fanfic_rec/

Wow, you are brave! I don't have the heart to throw out stuffed animals, so we've got them overflowing everywhere!

Well, the Giant Bag O'Stuffed Animals is staying a while longer :-/ I've managed to winnow about five, maybe seven. But that's something.

Wow, you've been majorly productive! *rubs your feet* I've done very little except muck about with my new iPod and go to the grocery store. I was going to do laundry, but lost the will - probably because I'm subconsciously pretending I don't have to go to work tomorrow.

On the bright side, I do have my new iPod to take with me, with nummy TV episodes for the watching. I mean, to the extent I can watch TV at work. Which really depends on the day.

And now I'm rambling. *hugs tight*

I lost the will to launder too. Good luck in recreational viewing at work!

Hehe, I'm just crossing my fingers hoping she doesn't come back going BUT MOM! Where is all my stuff?! My mom used to do the Grand Clean every few years and I would get so pissed off. But I'm sure your progeny is not nearly so much the ungrateful little brat that I used to be, heh.

I threw out bubble wrap! and put gift bags in the giftwrap corner! The only thing I actually tossed that she might have wanted (but it was under the piles of stuff for three months) was a kiddie makeup kit that I didn't want her to have anyway. I didn't even get rid of the Princess Barbie!

Garaggh....my brain isn't working. I've missed several posts from everyone and while rushing to get caught up, I misread your post as "the giant panda of chaos". I was very worried for a moment.
