Where do the days go? Oh that's right, I volunteer for too much and get overwhelmed in the final weeks. THAT IS WHERE MY DAYS GO!
J's school Raffle is in a few weeks. I am once again chairing it (my last year, I swear!) So right after C's party my living room became Raffle Central with gift baskets, prizes, ribbon, tissue paper etc. It is a mess. I avoid that room at all costs. But it is time to start knocking out things so I am not sleep deprived the week of the event.
C came down with something in the middle of the night last night so he and I stayed in....And did what any normal OCD mom would do, organized something. I tackled "my side" of the storage room. (Where I keep gifts, my crafting stuff, wrapping paper, ribbon and anything else I need to hide or conceal from the residents.) I tossed about 2 boxes worth of "junk". Meaning if I moved into this house 4.5 years ago and have not TOUCHED IT, it was gone....That felt nice. I cleared up 3 shelves, labeled anything that needed with my new fun labels I got from iheartorganizing and loved it! It is now a place that I will happily walk into and not feel like I might kill myself going back there. Between the holidays and C's party, it became a dumping ground!
In a moment of C resting and me playing online I found this blog that I adore! She style is more my style and slowly I am creating ideas for the house that are totally DIY and budget friendly. I may do it my own way, but at least the ball is rolling in the right direction!
Since C is sick, we have laid low, had some cuddles, gotten some chores done and rested. That has been nice. But it also means I am behind on my list. I see a long night ahead of me to catch up so I do not feel overwhelmed on Thursday. I have such a routine and although I know I am a SAHM my choice, if my routine gets bumped it sends me into a tizzy. Does that happen to anyone else?
