I don't know why I do this! Yesterday as I was doing my thing around the house I came up with a decent idea for a blog post. Of course, I thought, there is NO way I will forget this brilliance--no need to write it down. Yeah, I should have written it down.
Today the plan is to purge the play room. I am always so amazed at the number of toys my girls have versus the number they actually play with on a regular basis. About twice a year I like to sweep through there with a discerning eye and toss the stuff that's broken, missing pieces, or otherwise destroyed. We also make a pile to donate. The last time we went through and did a clean sweep, we came out of there with three large black garbage bags full of junk!
I am feeling a bit restless over the last two days wrestling between the time it takes to do the stuff I want to do, versus the stuff I need to do. I wonder, do I leave the everyday chores slide so that I can work on these bigger time-eating projects? Yesterday the everyday chores won out--with little to eat in the house, no more wipes on hand, and diapers dwindling, I had to make a grocery run when what I really wanted to do was organize our "game" closet.
What I need to do is get back on track with the Flylady. Have any of you ever heard of her? Tried her methods? I know Janene and I both have had some success with her, but I can't remember if we've ever mentioned it on the blog. It all starts with a shiny sink...check it out if you are feeling overwhelmed by those every day tasks that, if ignored, turn a mole hill into a mountain. That's what I'm off to do right now!
Anyone else struggling with restlessness lately?
