I know that I needed to post yesterday and didn’t. Messy husband took the messy kids to visit his parents and I heve been cleaning, cleaning, and then cleaning some more. Pictures to come soon.


What I do Best

November 1, 2007

My children are napping so I could be cleaning the living room, kitchen, family room, playroom, my bedroom, or the bathrooms, but I am not. I could be cleaning up and cutting the grass in our front or back yard, but I am not. I could be working on our budget,but I am not. I could be working on our family calendar, but I am not. I could be working on my children’s school’s fundraising projects, but guess what? I am not. What am I doing absolutley nothing. I am so overwhelmed that I don’t kow where to begin, so I will put it off a little bit longer.

Because I have to

November 1, 2007

I am writing because I said that I would everyday for 6 weeks. My house is a mess and I am tired after taking the kiddos trick-or-treating. I have a really hard time when my house is really messy. I become paralyzed. I see the mess, but I don’t do anything about it except complain.

Change in Plans

So, I need to figure out a way to keep my day from going downhill when something changes my plan. Minor car accidient (with no injuries) = absolutly nothing getting down at home. I do not do spontaneous well.

Good Habits

October 29, 2007

My mother has told me that if I want to make a habit of doing something, that I must do that task every day for six weeks. In order for this blog to help me transitition from an unorganized messy life to an organized one I need to make sure I make a habit of posting every day for the next six weeks.
So, My first tip to help one become more organized is to choose a task that you want to become good habit, such as making your bed, and do that task every day for six weeks. See if it becomes part of your routine. I sure hope it does for me.

A Change For the Better

October 29, 2007

I love my family more than anything else in this world.  My desire to live a clean and uncluttered life comes in as a close second.  Unfortunately for me, these two loves do not coexsist well with each other.  This is my attempt to mesh the two loves of my life together in order to create a more cohesive, simple life.
