Ok with JM’s dust allergies and my ever growing feeling the house is imploding in on me I have started “spring” cleaning in the Fall. I am having a yard sale in October because as much as I wish I was more charitable I hate to give when I can sell. I know I suck.
Now I must confess I hate cleaning. I look around and I think who made this mess? How did this place get so cluttered? I think it takes a home about two years of surface cleaning to get good and noticeable dirty. And that is where we are this month …. Two years. I realized our family has moved every two – three years for the past 15 years. It’s a good system… live in a house that is surfaced cleaned for two years + moving = clean new house and fresh start. Well like most people in our country unless we do something tricky or fuzzy math moving is not an option at this point so I guess that leaves me really only one option…. Yep you guessed it…. I can hire a maid. Oh man I wish. I will attempt a deep clean. I’m not even sure I know how to start let alone execute a deep clean. Another problem I have is I can not stand to get rid of things we “may” need in the future. Some call it being a packrat I call it being prepared. I always seem to have just the right thing to do the job or project. And toys I hate to get rid of mostly educational toys even if the kids aren’t playing with it or games I have a weakness for children’s games even if the kids don’t play it very often… the option is there. I need to stop and better evaluate what we do not need but it is so hard.
In heath news JM is still home this week to complete his recovery and we go back to the ENT to get release to return to school on Monday but I think he will be fine. He is definitely healing. I am so thankful this is behind us! Ok off to start looking at the girls clothes at what can go to consignment.
