Not fun!

Sounds like everyone is doing a great job this week. Must be spring in the air or something.

I've done pretty good the past two days. I'm working out of order a bit, but I got all of our Easter stuff squared away. I did go to Target last night and ended up buying 2 new Easter baskets, but it was something I had planned to do eventually (I used DS's older basket for DD this year, and got him a bucket for his this year). Anyhow, I ended up purging 3 Easter baskets, plus some decorations, a pair of sunglasses DD got in her basket from my mom, some little toys and plastic eggs, some candy, etc. The gifts we're keeping have been put away, and the Easter stuff has been packed away and I just need DH to bring the bin back down to the basement.

I also started in on my car, which I guess will be my "Friday" task (since I didn't get to do it the last time it was on the list). DS got a new car seat, so I gave his old one to his sister. I got the seats all situated and installed, and while I did that I vacuumed out the back seats of the car and decluttered my whole car. I also packed a bag to keep in there with stuff we might need (extra outfits, diapers, wipes, a blanket, first aid kit, etc.) which I have been meaning to do for awhile.

I also dropped off a carfull of donations at Goodwill last night! The guy was super crabby but that's okay, I felt great getting all that stuff out of the house and out of my car. Now I just need to vacuum the front and back of the car and wipe things down and it will be all set for spring. I loooove having a clean car. And it's so nice to be done with DD's infant seat and have the two nice Radians in there.

I'll be working on the kitchen stuff today, I think. I might do clothes if I get a chance to put some laundry away. I'm saving the office stuff for Friday, since DH will be home and I have a lot I need to do in there (filing, some purging, lots of putting things away).

Hope you all have a productive day!
I also need a backup kid bag in my van...and it's still loaded full of the donation stuff.

Sounds like your making great progress!

Today I'm working on our diaper stash. I donated a tonne of diapers that wouldn't sell, now I need to finish prepping the newbie wool and diapers since he could be here any day now.

^ Thank you!

Purged 3 shirts from my closet today while I put some laundry away. I plan on doing more in there but it's a start. I also purged some random stuff... a pair of my son's outgrown shoes, some painting stuff for a project I don't plan on completing, a broken towel ring, etc.

Fingers are crossed that DD sleeps a bit better tonight, so I have more energy tomorrow!

Dis some papers. Well stuff from my purse like old coupons and receipts. Also turned in some paper work to the EDD office. So that is out of my house. Put away everything sitting in the printer tray. Recycled some odd pages I didn't need printed.


Have a job interview tomorrow. Hopefully it pays well. It is super close to home. . I could even ride my bike.

Down another 1 pound. The working out more is making me the energy to get more stuff gone.

Friday my goal is to get this crib size quilt pieced together for my mom and put it in the mail.

Good luck on the sleeping!

And double good luck on the job interview!

I am so tired and hurting that I took today off work. I"m just not quite up to a full week yet. So I"m hoping today where I can just take it easy maybe I"ll get a few things de-cluttered. Wanting to tackle my closet again.

So yesterday I sold 13 diapers on the FSOT. (you guys should know I'm a diaper hoarder, like horribly)

I also listed quite a buy of maternity clothes on ebay. I donated two large boxes of breast pads and some sposies we had JIC to the local womens shelter.

I did manage to bring a puppy home ... so that might count against me...

Lol puppies bring so much clutter. Some days I wish I could declutter pets, well everything besides the dog! Lol

She was the runt she needs to be bottle fed, momma keeps pushing her away. I'm such a sucker. Plus it made my niece super happy I was going to try and nurse her back to health

I might just try to get it healthy enough to find a home for. We had to put down our lab after a snake bite this summer, and I don't know that I want another dog. I was kinda enjoying the lack of dog hair in my vacuum.

Do maternity clothes sell pretty well on ebay? I have a NWT shirt I'm trying to sell locally, but nobody seems interested.

I totally understand. I love my pups, but some days a hairless dog sounds lovely! Speaking of which, I need to bathe my border collie since she has to go to school with me tomorrow.

I'm not sure if they would or not. Seemed worth a shot. Ill let you know

My lab used to let me vacuum her. Straight up just cut out the middle man. It was a wonderful arrangement.
