We recently returned from vacation (LOVE the Outer Banks) and I am trying to unpack and get my act together around the house. I have been trying to get the house together for a very long time (longer than I am willing to admit) and have been largely unsuccessful. After staying in a clutter-free rental for a week at the beach, coming home to a big mess was very disapointing. Not only am I missing the beach, but the mess is overwhelming. I am VERY motivated to throw everything out of this house. Starting over feels easier than slogging through all the CRAP.
SO, I'm trying to get into a routine. The day to day stuff is first. I swept and vaccumed the public part of the house, just where I could get to. I consolidated the paper clutter into one spot and started a load of laundry. I took the boys out to lunch instead of trying to find the table. Then I unloaded the dishwasher and put the few dirty dishes in, and put the laundry in the dryer. Now I have a few minutes to hang with my boys before starting dinner.
Tonight, I plan on going to the gym and then knitting until bedtime. Hopefully I can get some sleep before Tiny A wakes up. And tomorrow is the first day of preschool, so I should have some "free" time to keep up with these daily things!
I am looking forward to tossing a ton of clutter and finding some peace and room in my life for creating! This fall is going to be very busy, with June Pryce's ads going up on Ravelry and tons of spinning and knitting in my queue. I also have some ideas floating around in my head and I'd love to work them up into patterns!
