It's that time of the year when the kiddies are back to school and our mornings and evenings become rather chaotic in the shuffle. I don't know about you, but I like to keep that chaos to a minimum, especially in the mornings. I don't want my kids running around looking for their backpacks or homework or lunches or whatevs. I find that designating a small command center zone in my home really helps with the morning and after school routine. My kids know where to get their stuff in the morning and they know where to put their stuff after school without me having to nag them.

I personally used to have indoor plants, but I couldn't keep them alive for too long. I didn't know I was buying varieties that were "easy to kill." Yes, it turned out that it wasn't me after all.
If you are a little intimidated by the green living things, I invite you to watch this slide show so you can choose wisely next time you are shopping in a plant nursery.
