Big things are happening in our house. We are switching everybody’s rooms around. I know real exciting right?
We have six people, three bedrooms and an almost ten year old who has been politely begging me to have her own room. So I gave in and decided everything needs to be rearranged.
Big D and I are moving downstairs, the two girls will have their own rooms and the boys will share a room. You can imagine the “That’s not fair!” shrieking out of Lil D’s mouth when I told him the news. I could have been like my Mom and used the good old saying, “Well life is not fair, get used to it.” But I didn’t.
We also have a T.V/ playroom in the basement and I told Lil D that since he has to share a room that area of the basement would be his little getaway. He was fine with that and life became a fair place once again.
I had no idea the amount of work that was going to be in store for me. The reason being is we have too much stuff. I am in the process of cleaning out my room and the basement, and all I keep saying is, “Why do we have this?” “We don’t need this.” I want to get rid of it all, I want to simplify our space.
I feel the amount of clutter and “stuff” that is in our home is not good for our well being, well mine at least. It gives me anxiety and a personal cluttered feeling.
I want anything with dust on it gone. Anything that has been shuffled around but never picked up and actually looked at gone. I want to simplify.
I posted a huge amount of our big things on freecycle.org and the items are in the process of being picked up. Now I have to tackle our room. Most of the stuff in our room is Big D’s, getting rid of it will be tricky.
Pray for me that I don’t get lost in this jungle of nick knacks and dusty furniture. And if you need anything let me know I am sure we have one around here somewhere.
