It’s getting brighter

Good morning world!

I’m not sure how I managed it, but I actually got a comfy sleep last night and, thanks to daylight savings, awoke at 8:30. It’s a miracle 😉

Talked to the repair shop already, they said it’s the timing belt so now I wait for the estimate. My dear, sweet punk _ 14 year old who was awake before me is now sleeping. 😦 He has a lot of buses to hop to get to his class today, this will be fun.

On the bright side, I got my piercing supplies in the other day!! I’m just waiting for 1 piece of jewelry then I can get to it. I can’t wait, it’s taking too long!! Jewelry is like make up, it just accentuates your beauty…but it doesn’t taste nasty when kissing 🙂

Hmm, it’s sunny, I’m up, and I have nowhere to be today I think I will throw open windows and start sorting and packing. What do you do on your days off?

Time to wake the beast. Enjoy your day!!

Distractions

Some days I want to throw all electronic devices out, other days I wish we still used pagers and internet want at our finger tips 24/7. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing I will find myself checking my phone and not even knowing why. Habits don’t require thought, just action. I know I’m not the only one, I see people do it all the time, at work, driving, on the street, we are all obsessed.

I wish I could say the kids have it worse, but really, the adults are just as bad, the big difference is most adults get their work done too. Ok well our paid work. Today I was suppose to clean, but I found myself researching numerous things for an upcoming doctor appt and such that could have waited. Like I said before, there’s always an excuse. I really do need to make a list tomorrow and reward myself as I accomplish each goal. The good news is I am prepared for the appointments and the upcoming meeting with the school, the downside is I have pulled things out as I clean and purge and they are sitting here waiting for me to pull out together and move them to their new room.

Yup, tomorrow is it , I can’t look at this stuff out of place much longer. I need that rush of accomplishment, maybe I will reward myself by shopping for paint for the living room. Crap, no, I’m already distracting myself.

Decluttering=a bigger mess

I finally started my declutter mission. It is a task to fit 15+ mins into my current cleaning routine, but I’m doing it. I have 2 paper bags full of items to donate and someone just came to pick up my son’s old basketball hoop. It felt so good to see things go.

Unfortunately for me decluttering creates an even bigger mess. Pulling things out and going through them often leaves some items displaced. 😦 This could get messy, I hope the boys don’t want a slumber party anytime soon. Sure eventually things will find a place or go, but if I try to find a place now I will never fully go through things or have to sort that item again when I get to that room.  I could be doing this wrong, but I’m easily distracted do I don’t want to deviate.

Advice?
