This afternoon Sean is busy organizing, cleaning, and sorting the garage. Not a fun job on this cold winter day but it will be so nice once it is done. The older three children are cutting and taping and making themselves armor and masks while I try to woo the littler ones into a time of napping.
This morning Miss Eleanora Catherine helped me sort through the master bedroom. I am a terribly sentimental person and have been trying to stoically put that aside as I sort literally everything into four categories: use, give away, sell, throw away. It is really ridiculous how many "extra" things I have and it feels oh so good to be thinning out, carrying bags downstairs and sweeping the floor clean.
While the small ones sleep, I think I'll go tackle the master bath. Wish me luck! Are you cleaning/organizing/decluttering as a part of the New Year?
