Sitting in my living room I feel like a hoarder. Really, it just isn’t my week. With laundry piling up (dirty and clean), my hallway is full(dirty)and my couch is piled high(clean). Don’t come to my house. Top it off with a corner/wall of our living room is the school room which needs help, the living room floor is the playroom, and another corner of the living room is the coat/shoe area, which needs “de-winterized” still….
(Maybe you are envisioning a huge space. Don’t. It’s approximately
18 x 17. Never mind, I just measured – 15 x 14.)
Back to my living room and motivation. I can’t do it all. Between homeschooling, cooking, cleaning houses, blogging for 2 blogs, picking a little boy up from the bus sometimes, and keeping up the housekeeping, I just can’t do it all. Novel thing to come out of a mom’s mouth I know but I did say I’m all about keeping it real.
Today I was at a yard sale and they had bags of legos or $1-$4 each. The whole lot came to around $26. We worked it to $17 and I walked away with them in a black bag – purely accidental but genius.
I got in the car and wondered what was wrong with me. I am tired of legos in my kitchen, bedroom, living room, bathroom, car…..TIRED OF FINDING THEM anywhere, but really really tired of them in strange places.
I told they have to earn them…..and it all is starting with getting the living room cleaned up. Once the floor is completely cleaned up they will get to SEE what I bought. It’s a great motivator. They are working hard.
