30 Days - Day 9


I feel like I'm drowning!!!!!!!!!!!!
I feel just like this guy!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm amazed at how much paper our house produces. I took 3 paper grocery sacks to the recycling bin at church and when I cleaned off my desk this afternoon, I filled up another box. Yeah, I forgot to take a picture before cleaning it off, so you can call me chicken for not showing my mess but this guy's instead :-)

I'm desperately trying to be like this woman...FREE from the bondage of clutter!! It's so HARD!! I fight it constantly. My kids are no help!! Just when I think I have an area clutter free, my daughter decides she need to bake a Valentine's cake for her sweetie. Now this isn't a problem except she seems to have bought out the entire cake decorating dept. at Hobby Lobby and guess where it all sits???? Hmmm??? My brother-in-law told my sister as she was complaining of the same thing, "One day you'll miss these days." She replied, "I'll miss the kids but not the mess!'

AMEN sister!!!

yes, and grandkids seem to make even a bigger mess; because when all the kids have moved out it seems so nice and clean and quiet. Then when they come for a visit with a little one WOW it seems like a tornado hit (a lovely one--but things get messy fast ;-) _
