Today is one of those days were I feel completely and absolutely overwhelmed with my life. Completely.
So I did what I do when I feel overwhelmed. I cleaned stuff out and threw stuff away. I have organized most everything in reach today(except the magnets on the fridge). It isn't helping. Yet.
The clutter of a home with children seems to consume everything in sight sometimes. I can't stand it. I was never a clutter-lover before kids and I'm sure as heck not one now it's just that most days I surrender to it. But then...things sneak up on me (emotional, physical, imagined, whatever...) and I feel completely overwhelmed by all the responsibilities that are my life. Since it's so chaotic *inside* me, I try to regain control by cleaning up what is *outside* of me.
And so I clean. Or, more accurately, declutter and reorganize. And I hope it helps.
(side note to Dakota: Thanks for taking the last remaining plant to work with you. You have no idea what a relief it is not to see it sitting on the kitchen counter. So really - thanks!)
