When the groundhog saw his shadow in the beginning of February
I am pretty sure I cried a little…
This winter has been pretty intense in our home with regard to sickness. The kids have had their share of sickness to include: the flu, stomach bug, pink eye, random colds and fevers. The “fun” thing about a family with 4 children is the ability to pass sickness back and forth all-winter-long (ha ha). To say that we are in need of a good declutter to simplify our space would be an understatement.
Needless to say I am so ready for Spring! In fact I cannot even tell you how many times over the last two months that I’ve googled to see how many days are left until Spring (March 20th, 2018) – 20 days, 11 hours 30 minutes and 30 seconds… Nothing helps me embrace the season change like a good old fashion house cleaning.
Clutter Completely Overwhelms Me
It’s hard for me to strike a balance between clutter, kid mess and a lived in home. I have come to realize that I am happiest when my home is tidy and our stuff isn’t everywhere. When we have too much stuff (books, toys, DVD’s, clothes, etc) I’ve noticed it is really easy to become overwhelmed. By getting rid of excess things and keeping both meaningful and useful items on hand cleaning and maintaining a tidy home becomes easier and less time consuming.
