About Time


I broke my cellphone, so I ordered a new one. Ridiculously, my password to WordPress would not work. After 12 days…voilá! Here I am!

Well, I have been minimizing like it’s nobody’s business. Two more bags of clothes out the door! How good it feels. Less stuff in the house. 

The biggest freedom has been the baby clothes…I saved evething from my first child, from newborn to 2T. My second wore it and received more of his own clothes, which I also kept.

They say 3rd time’s a charm. As soon as i notice that the clothes are not fitting, I wash them and put them in the bag. Off to Church where some other baby can look comfy cozy. It feels good to get rid of it and knowing that it will be helping someone else.

So grateful to be able to do so… So, this is my victory blog for tonight after almost 2 weeks of wanting to kill my WP account.

Sweet dreams my people!

Get Rid of it 2017!!!


The weather outside is frightful… The south towns got slammed with snow. We have a lot of chills and winds. So, we stayed in, we stayed in, we stayed in…

We seemlessly did school work today (miracle),  the boys played with remote control cars (for hours) they received from Grandma and Papa. Then watched Scooby-Doo and Harry Potter. I forget how long the movie is, but I couldn’t back out after I absentmindedly said yes

So…I did what I have been doing (but not blogging)… Getting rid of things!!! 

So… For those who have not read before, I had posted Get Rid Of It!!! For a whole year, I aimed to get rid of something every day to get rid of clutter. Now…***GOOD WARNING*** IT GETS ADDICTING. 

Although, I didn’t get a chance to do it every single day (I have somewhat of a life you know😉). Some days I went through closets and drawers and was able to get rid of boxes of things, making up for lost time plus more.

So, sometimes I just need to do certain things… For example, the cabinet next to the bathroom. It was so cluttered and really, I had cleared it up a year or two ago, so it was driving me crazy. It doesn’t seem like much, but I got rid of two bags full of stuff. 

That is the second one… I thought, I can post this (I’m brilliant). Notice… Those are tickets to Disney on Ice that we went to last January. Reminds me that I should do that this year. We really enjoyed it. 

Then while my mind is going nuts about how I want to get rid of more and more and more. I turned into our freshly washed (not) laundry baskets. 

ONE LARGE BAG OF CLOTHES!!! OFF TO DONATION!!!

Yes, that is exciting! I am no longer attached to 500 baby items (must be a third baby over it type of thing). Plus bye-bye pregnancy clothes, plus bye clothes that I just bought but I lost more weight clothes. I feel accomplished.

I have to say, I’m a happy joy-joy person today. Which reminds me of Joyfully Mom who has the awesome blog Joyfull Inspirations. Check her out, her blog is full of recipies on Gluten Free goodness, healthy living and lots and lots of LOVE. I kid you NOT!!! You read her stuff even after a bad, horrible day and you wish you could grab her face and kiss it through the screen from her positivity dose.

Anyway, yeah…It is late and the man of the house shall be home soon, (I hope he brings some yummy food home cause he loves me lots).  So, I would love to give him my undivided attention and have a beer ready for him (because I love him lots).  

So, I’ll leave you with this…

Anything you do for anyone and yourself, do it with lots of LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! 

L❤️VE…ME!

Kick it to the Curb


I just love his face… This is his new look when he gets spooked, sad, blowing raspberries or is thinking. 

Anyway, I had baby things I was going to give my sister for her baby, but due to her loss, I still had them.

 I had a swing, pack and play, a bassinets and a diaper genie. All just taking space in my house.
I really didn’t have the time or energy to be lugging things around to a consignment shop. I didn’t want money, and places here like the Salvation Army won’t take baby things due to safety. So, I put them out on the curb.

I didn’t throw them away, I put them out to see if people would take them. Not even one hour passed and it was all gone! I call that a win-win situation. You get rid of something while helping someone else.

Now, my gears are turning. What else can I put on the curb on garbage day?

Losing My Mind!!!

You can’t even see behind the boxes or into the dining room. How much crap can we possibly have? I have consolidated more than I ever thought I could, but really, I don’t think I’m even a quarter done with our stuff.

Today, I’ve emptied 8 drawers!!! Drawers of just stuff… I am playing musical furniture and I refuse to move anything unless it’s empty and clean. I’m just so over it… Although, this over it feeling is making me get rid of a lot of things. I still have a cold and I’m tired.

I am somewhat miserable though. I haven’t been able to draw, do blog battle, read, write, crafts, Zumba, Yoga, the things I was doing to bring myself back to happy me! Even as I write this my vision is fuzzy, but if I don’t do one thing at least, I’ll lose my mind completely! Even maternity pants rub me the wrong way, causing me to bleed. Sorry for the TMI. Maybe I’ll just wear Babe’s clothes for the rest of the year.

I just need to keep on moving…just think that this too will pass and it will all be worth it. Next year, we’ll be in a new home where I won’t be drowning, dancing my heart out without worrying.

Get Rid of it!!! Day 24


So I went crazy today! Going through drawers, looking for things that do not get used so I can get rid of it! Declutter my friends, declutter. Here is what I came up with…

Clothes, of course! Like I said, if it does not fit… Get Rid of it!!!

CDs, DVDs, books I bought 12 years ago, swimming diapers, tights I never wrote and a magnifying mirror. Thank you, but I don’t care to see my pores so closely! Get Rid of it!

Small water shoes, a foot guard from when someone fractured my toe (what are the chances I will need that again?). A baby float, gripe water that is like 4 years old (ew, I know!) And my infected metal from last year’s Zombie Mud Run! It was a blast, but I am over it!

I think I have made it up for the 11 days I will be gone! I am looking forward to having fun in the sun!

Until Next Time My Friend,

Can you say “Spring Cleaning”?
