I am an opposite person. I don't nest before babies come. I nest afterwards, in the year after baby is born. I don't Spring clean. Instead, I Fall clean. It's just how the world works for me.
So, as you can guess, with the changing of the leaves, my house has been my main focus lately. I've been going through kids clothes, changing from Summer to Winter. I've been working through clutter, passing on things that are no longer needed in our home. I've been going through school things, finding permanent places for things I've been putting off.
This week alone I have sorted clothing, pulled weeds that were growing outrageously around our house, straightened drawers, cleaned kitchen counter tops, made my sink shine and the list goes on. It feels so good to finally have my home falling into place.
With all that has been going on in our family, I feel the need to find a place for everything and put everything into it's place. It's a process but it's getting there and nothing feels better to have a neat, clean area to come home to.
I need to sit down and set forth goals for completion of my cleaning plan. I also need to set up school work, as with Jackson finally having control, we now have more time for school again. I also need to work on blogging plans because, well frankly, I'm always out of ideas on what I need to write about on here. A plan would help that tremendously, as would returning my laptop to a permanent place near my review items so I can work easier.
For the next few weeks, I know I will be catching up on those things I am behind on. I will be planning things throughout our life, moving forward as best I can. For now, I will do all I can manage and that's all I can do.
