In times when there are so many things I cannot control are throwing me for a loop, I hold on tightly to the things I can. For me, last week brought so many changes to my family’s daily routine. To be honest it started about a month before, ramped up the week before last with B going to school, and really went “arse over tea kettle” when Lou started afternoon Kindergarten.
So, what did I do to ease the strain? I cleaned out my daughter’s closet. Turns out I can’t control that all the time either. Next, I created a “Back to school” binder for each kid, then I started to clean out my closet, then I moved onto the garage. I didn’t just clean it, I can actually give you an itemized list of all the items currently out there. Boxes were sorted through, new shelving erected, things were re-boxed, re-labeled, donated, things will be sold, but that garage is going to stay as clean and organized as possible! Organization heals all.
Moving into the 2nd full week of new changes I actually feel much better. Ahhhhh, organization. Just don’t mess with my garage!
Have a great week everybody!
