Fresh eyeballs help.

April 13th, 2011 at 03:08 am

My mom came over to the new place today and saw the inside for the first time. She had some storage ideas I hadn't even considered, some that might even work out better than what I had planned. I.e. adding some more shelved in the pantry and dedicating it to food storage only, and shifting all the mops and brooms to the second front hall closet.

A fresh set of eyeballs on a problem can certainly come in handy!

I also dropped four big boxes of stuff off at the thrift store today. And, I sold a ceiling fan that's been sitting in the garage for $25 on Craigslist. It went into the house-stuff piggy bank.

I also started a fresh donation box at the new house. As I unpacked, I put a couple of things in there. It's easy to get sentimental about stuff, but eyes on the prize. With two small kids, we have minimal extra energy, so energy we don't have to spend dealing with the everyday fallout of clutter can be spent on bigger and better things. If we haven't used it or there isn't room, it's going. No questions.

I will say I am totally exhausted. The kids have been sick for going on a month now, two rounds of pink eye, an ear infection, and now two colds that have lasted about a week. It's been hell. And, the baby is cutting more teeth, ergo screaming his head off the last two nights. And, little man is stalling going to bed and then keeps coming out of his room. This, on top of moving, work, etc. and I am exhausted. I think I got about 4 hours sleep last night, and that is being generous. I know I'm on deadline, but I might just go to bed early tonight. I know I should work, but I am totally spent.

    Get some rest! two kids and a move--sleep while you can!
    The house will still be there tomorrow.

    I hope you got better sleep last night. There is still time to get things done. One step at a time.

    So glad your mom had some good ideas on organizing. Keep her coming over!!
