I hate clutter. With a passion. Yet it always seems to creep up on me, pushing what I want to be a fun day aside to instead focus on the cleaning, organizing, and decluttering. It seems a never ending chore, similar to the laundry.
Just this morning, Mark asked who was going to have a fantastic day. The kids all kind of mumbled, but I enthusiastically jumped in with a “ME! I am!”
The kids stared at me kind of weirdly, and then finally asked “What are you doing today mom?”
So I told them I had two different plans. Plan 1 was to head to their aunt’s house, where I would walk with her around her neighborhood and attempt to induce labor. Plan 2 was to clean and organize their bedrooms while they were at school.
“Go to Aunt Renee’s!!!” They all shouted. “Please go to Aunt Renee’s!”
Sadly for them, it turned out to be a rainy day, so walking was out of the question. Instead, Aunt Renee came to our house to help me clean and organize. We started with a basic cleaning of the kitchen, then we walked through the kids’ rooms, and took notes and measurements of how to organize their clutter better. Finally, we hit up Target for some bins and command hooks. It was time to kick the clutter to the curb!
