spring cleaning

This is my plan for the day — and for the next two weeks. I’ve been feeling the heavy weight of having no game plan when it comes to homemaking, and after crying in the shower one morning, too exhausted to even come up with a plan (let alone execute it), I found simplemom’s invitation to spring clean in my google reader.

While it’s not my first choice for getting on top of things (I was kind of hoping my mom would suddenly appear, kick us all out of bed one morning, and announce that it was turn-the-house-upside-down week, like she used to), it sure seemed like an answer to prayer.

Unfortunately, today is a toss-the-obvious-junk day, and I guess I’m too good at that, because I don’t have much just laying around. (While I don’t love everything about renting, I do appreciate knowing that I’m going to have to box this all up someday, because it helps me to streamline.) That’s okay. I’m sure the other days (like wipe-the-grime-from-your-kitchen day) will be a good kick in the rear. Yay!

So. Here’s to a jump start at routine and being the man with the plan (so to speak.)

    Wish I could come and spring clean for you and leave my house behind. Someone else’s stuff is always easier to deal with…. well, sometimes… ;)

    Thanks for the link. I used to subscribe to simplemom but pared down feeds a while ago so I missed it. I only have 16 days of school left and plan to wait to spring clean until then. However, the curbside donation pick-up is happening Thursday and this is just the kick in the pants I needed to scour the rest of the house to add to my pile. I’ll be one step ahead, right? Happy purging! (One of my favorite things to do!!)

    It’s just me and I feel overwhelmed a lot in regards to keeping up my house and keeping the clutter to a minimum. I think you are doing a great job with 2 little boys and a husband. Your pictures always look amazing.
