The Minnesota Mom Edition
Now granted, I’m just one Minnesota mom….
…but I’ve got enough clutter and mess to fill the state.
At least, it feels that way sometimes.
These are shots of our classroom/craft room/computer room/office. We are in the process of converting it to a bedroom–a bedroom!–for our three daughters, who are 12, 10 & 8-years-old and who are spilling out of their current room.
A spilled little girl is very messy. I usually try to look away.
The truth is, we are not the most organized of families at present. We are not the most…ordered. My goal for this summer–a HUGE goal–is to get rid of a ton of accumulated “stuff” and make a nice clean sweep of things.
To that end, I have checked out every single Peter Walsh book from the library. Don’t believe me? Just ask my husband about those piles of Peter Walsh books. (John refers to all my stacks of stuff as “Maggie’s piles.” Sounds kind of gross, don’t it? Like a really embarrassing medical condition.)
One of the reasons that I didn’t blog for over a week is that I thought, I shouldn’t be blogging where there’s so much WORK to do. The fact is, though, if I don’t stop from time to time [emphasis mine] to take a creative break…
I will get totally overwhelmed and completely burned out.
Besides, a (semi-)organized hom is a more peaceful home, and a more peaceful home is one where I just might…possibly, if their luck holds out…
Recipe to be posted on Grab Bag Thursday? Hard to say! That’s a crap shoot.
