The Beauty of Getting Caught Up

Ahhhhhhhhhhh! There's just nothing quite like getting "caught up," is there? For myself, at least, it gives me such a feeling of PEACE. I truly believe clutter breeds chaos, and any time I see a messy area brewing, it fills me with a sense of panic. It makes me feel out of control and crazy. And if you know me at all, then you know I don't need any more crazy in my personality - I've got enough to last me my whole life through!

Over our Christmas vacation, we were able to actually relax and enjoy ourselves and to declutter some areas that had been needing to be decluttered for a while. I actually took some time off from my job, and we organized and purged some of the "stuff" we had that we didn't need. We still have an abundance of things we don't need, but at least we managed to get rid of a good chunk of it. Yay us!

Even better, we found some treasures we had forgotten about! It has been nice to enjoy them again - they are brand new to us, now. And so we are feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the new year. I have no idea how the clutter builds up. I try to keep messes down to a minimum and to keep ahead of things, but before I know it, an overwhelming pile or area will build up. YIKES!

For now, at least, we are settled. I'm trying to teach my B's how to be more organized and to stay on top of their own messes. It's a life skill, you know? We'll see how that works out, won't we?
