DIgging Out

Darin and I are certifiable pilers. We have stacks and stacks of paper and other stuff. How do clutter-free people do it? Are their closets piled up to the ceiling and bulging at the seams just waiting to blow if someone opens it? Are they, like us, unable to park in their garage because it's so full of stuff? And, don't even get me started on all my kids' stuff!! Darin recently did a purge on their toys. We'll probably need another after Christmas.

I am getting better about throwing stuff away and not "just in case" filing it away. I have a small box of things to put on ebay sometime soon. I need to have another yardsale...but not until spring. Basically, I need to get rid of more stuff. I don't need a bigger house. I'd only fill it with more junk. I need to dig out and clean up the one I have!

Everyone else is doing it....

There are several things that I've said that I would never do, such as having kids, being a stay-at-home mom and scrapbooking. But, everyone knows how those "nevers" have gone. Well, I think I will just give this blog thing a try and see if any of my thoughts might change the world......haha.

Tonight, Jamison and I were playing and he fell and hit his head on the chair which left a red spot and bump. Later I was loving on him and I said "we really did a number on your head Buddy." He replied, "what number is is?" He is so funny and takes everything so literally.

Jackson is dying to make a necklace for his teacher for Christmas. He is a very giving little boy. We are trying to drive home the 'tis better to give than receive with our boys, especially at this time of year.

Until next time.....
