Today, we're putting all our decorations away, cleaning up from our new year's eve party (finally), doing laundry, and just generally putting our lives back together after the holidays. We had a wonderful holiday season with our friends and family and I hate to see it go, but I am very excited to get back to a routine, home cooking, and finishing organizing our new home.

Our BIG goal for the week is to get our other house on the market. Next week CANNOT start without there being a for sale sign in the yard. Seriously. It's taking entirely too long to get that done. In our defense, (I know I keep saying it) we did have to virtually move TWO houses in this move. But, I digress. It has to get done this week.
Something else I want to work on this week is starting on an area to grow a garden come Spring. I found this cool site on Pinterest called Smart Gardener. I can map out a garden, pick vegetables, herbs, fruits, and more that will do well in my zip code. That's great for me, since I live in such a hot, drought-prone area. I can filter my results to exclude plants that aren't heat tolerant and drought tolerant. How perfect is that??

My plan so far is some sweet potatoes, corn, and tomatoes. I am thinking about bay leaves and culantro, too (apparently it's a lot like cilantro, but less fragile). See! I've even learned something.
My plan is to have my garden ready for planting by the first week of March. I'm really excited! I think it will be something fun for me and the kids to experience together. I love watching gardens grow! It fascinates me to no end.
So what are you working on this week? Are you back to work? Back to the grind at home?
