Wouldn't you just love to be this comfortable sitting around? I would, but usually when I try to sit around I remember all the things I should be doing right then. There's always something. We should take more time to be like Oreo though... well, relax in the chair, not draped across the top, the kids might look at you funny.
This week I decided we were going to start slowing decluttering the house before Christmas this year. Why I decided that and to participate in Nanowrimo this year I will never know, but here's to the fun times. I've looked at many different cleaning schedules and nothing ever seems to stick for me. A large part of my problem is training my children though. They are sweet girls, but they do not understand how to pick up after themselves (surprise surprise I know) This time around in the decluttering we decided to do a wall of room each day, then the floor/middle and a day or two for pickup and maintenance. We should hit every main area of the house before the week of Christmas. We started today with wall one of the living room where we went through movies and reorganized the tv stand. That cat up above was so excited about the cleaning because it meant all his toys came out from under the tv stand. He was surrounded by six toy mice last I counted. He's not spoiled at all. Neither are the kids, promise. Or me for that matter... nope not spoiled at all.
Most of our activities are off next week for fall break. A part of me wants to use that extra time to tackle some of the decluttering project, but I also don't want to burn out like usual. Not sure what to do on that front. If you have a fall break next week what are your plans?
Hope you have a great week and I hope you'll visit again really soon!
