Organization

I no longer feel like I’m suffocating underneath mountains of junk. *angelic choir* After our usual family lunch out yesterday, Kevin and I cleaned out the garage, and I finished organizing the living room. It feels LOADS less cramped, and looks much better too. We got everything out of the cars, stacked neatly, and several MORE boxes shipped off to Goodwill. Today my mission is to find homes for the things that we wanted to keep, clean the kitchen, clean out Nora’s closet, and clean out the guest room. That, Bloggies, will be no easy task.

We were in a hurry to get dinner on the stove (Kevin made some pretty amazing chili) so instead of organizing things as we found them we brought them out of the garage and dumped them onto the kitchen table. The table is buried under mountains of boxes and loose junk that needs to be put away. It’s funny, and sad lol.

I also really need to organize the pantry. When we first started working on the house what has become the pantry was really a catch all closet for all of our tools, and supplies while we were working. It just happens to be in the kitchen, which has little to no cabinet space. It really needs to be my pantry… I’ve just been too lazy to clean it out.

Speaking of being too lazy…. I’ve also been really slacking on my exercising here recently. Last month I decided since we are trying to conceive that I would kick back and take it easy, especially since I have such a difficult time maintaining a healthy pregnancy. I don’t want to do anything to jeopardize our chances. So I quit restricting my calories, and quit exercising other than my normal day to day cleaning and keeping up with the Little. Much to my disappointment, nothing helped. I wasn’t able to maintain a viable pregnancy… This month, still trying to conceive, but I’ve stopped worrying about it. I’m still not dieting, or doing any extra exercising, but I’m not doing any diet restrictions or anything like that. 

Need to get back into my walking and yoga. I just do. It’s hard to find time though when I have the Little who refuses to nap, the dog and the house to take care of. Finding time for walking isn’t so difficult, but finding time for yoga is next to impossible. Yoga is really what I need, especially recently. I need to focus, keep myself reigned in, and stress free.

Anyway… enough of my babbling for today. Until later Bloggies. 🙂
