Okay, so you saw the state of the basement and my office "before"--As of today, the school room is ready. The office, well, remains in a state of disarray, but actually it almost always is a weekend cleanup job. Here is the school room, open for business. I really need to deep clean it more than once a year. It is such a gratifying accomplishment! It is also the one day of the year that I could land a spot in the Ikea catalog since 90% of our basement furnishings are from there...

The Wii is off-limits until all the school work is checked off for the day!

This weekend I will finish up the rest of the house, put the finishing touches on the lessons for next week, plan some menus and I will feel satisfied. In case you were wondering-- I did trim the cats' claws, and the storage room is not my department. Planting the new lawn is not my department either. I technically should not have added those to my list.
