I guess it just takes awhile and we really do have a lot of stuff! A LOT! I have a hard time throwing things away. If they're nothing wrong with something and I will use it at some point, why should I get rid of it? Having said that, I've donated at least 8 trash bags to Goodwill and have thrown away just as much other useless crap. Nevertheless, the Tirch household is filled to the brim. Today I did manage to organize my arts and crafts closet. Let the following picture serve as Exhibit A of my excessive tendencies.
And even though my arts and crafts are organized, the rest of the room looks like this:
Oh well, I'm not going to let it eat at me. I still have to live life, messy house or not. (I promise when it's looking better I will post pictures.) The kids didn't have school today so I took them to the mall to Build A Bear. They got bears for Christmas and this is the first chance I've had to take them and get them stuffed. They were so happy about it.
Afterwards, we went to lunch together.
I'd take lunch out with those 3 over a clean and organized house any day.
P.S. I have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday with the Sports Medicine doctor that fixed my shoulder. I trust him and I REALLY, REALLY hope he'll be able to help me with my legs.
