Still purging. So amazed at what 'lives' in my house that is not needed or even useless....like four jackets ds has outgrown, now packed up to send where they are both needed and useful. And CDs of music I bought and just don't listen to EVER.

That sounds like my husband. Our coping mechanism is that we just get out of his way. Even though I am not a "declutterer," I love the end results.


I finally posted 3 Teaching Textbooks packets to homeschool classified as well as my writing with ease books . I used all my free credits. So my goal is to keep them posted and all 7 credits used until they sell I really need to raise $200 for fall curriculum It would be great to do more but my goal is just to get at least $200.

AcK! I cleaned out under a cabinet in the kitchen this morning. What on EARTH was I doing with so many casserole dishes?!

After that I made a batch of soap....needed to use the goats milk from the freezer and I was getting rid of a pot in my supply stash so one thing led to another. NEVER have I had so much trouble making soap. I mean like a hole in the cup I was using to measure oil which resulted in oil on the counter, the scale ...... Then the thermometer wouldn't work and the battery I had in my hands only seconds before completely disappeared. DD one says one of the casserole dishes must have been a talisman keeping away the kitchen gremlins and that I brought it on myself (while she helped clean up oil)

So just beware that junk going out the door may be all that is protecting you from total chaos I still called dh and asked him to bring home empty boxes.

We are having an unexpected guest tomorrow night so I'm working on the guest room and the dining room. Included in the dining room tasks are cleaning out the school armoire from last year, getting some things ready to sell, and adding this year's books and supplies.

Plodding along. Two more rooms wiped down, and just needing floor tiles scrubbed. I skipped over the laundry room and will concentrate on that room tomorrow.

I have been ignoring the clean laundry that needs putting away.

But I've picked a LOT of thimbleberries, made 2 quarts of jam, and picked more berries. I'm getting outside and away from my rut. So, it's been good for me.

Now, I have to buy groceries and pack for camping. A job I absolutely hate. But, I gotta get it done. We leave tomorrow.

I've done all the purging and organizing I can in the kitchen/dining room/living room. Tomorrow I clean! Dh and I are running away from home (for like the first time in many ages) over the weekend, so I want everything to be 'perfectish' for when my mom stays over Saturday night.

Tuesday I take on my mom's guest room closet (kinda big). Between semesters, the girls are on notice to 'get it done'

You all are getting so much done.




I got the curriculum photographed and up for sale and dd's curriculum ordered and the rest of her curriculum I already had up on the shelf.



Cleaned the guest bedroom with ds's help, but found out his guest isn't coming until next Thursday.

I only did maintenance housework this morning, then I took ds and his friend to the lake for a few hours. They swam and I read. This evening I went for a jog with two new friends. Iím at peace. It was a good day of prioritizing relationships.
