I've been a little quiet lately. Both kids had coughs, and I have had the joy of a TMJ flare up which has sent me to my knees in pain. Not fun, let me tell you. And to top off that, the germ machines made sure that I didn't walk out unscathed. I'm now hacking a lung every two minutes. But hey, super mom doesn't stop, so why should I?
So Simple Mom has issued the first challenge this week in her 5 week attempt to de-clutter and organize our homes. It's actually a simple one, sort of. The Closet/wardrobe. This will be easy for me on one hand, since I just did a good chunk of it in the Fall. It's will also be hard because I have a hard time letting go of a lot of clothes. I have a good amount of "not quite a good fit stuff" that I want to keep but need to lose weight to get into. Last year at this time, I would've had the confidence to say I'll get down to the right size, but this year has been hard, and I don't have that confidence. I've been yelling at myself for 4 weeks now to start Phase 1 of South Beach.
There's also the problem of my "10 favorite items" being ratty, ripped, full of holes and well...better off in the trash. But they are so comfortable!! I really do need to invest in new clothes, but it's hard to give up those "favorites". (And I think that's another problem, getting rid of stuff just to go out and buy more!)
But I will give it a try this week. If anything, it'll get rid of a bunch of socks and underwear that have holes in them. That's never a bad thing. And besides, maybe now I can actually give you pictures of the work I did in the bedroom so long ago!
