Time To Get Organized

After spending the last–well, my whole lifetime–being known as the messy child, it kind of gets old. Mr. is actually quite the opposite. He is tidy and spends his weekends cleaning with me. But, cleaning ALL the time–well, like cleaning for anyone else–it gets old quick.

Don’t tell me that speech of–you have 5 people in your family, it’s bound to get messy. Or you have kids, kids are messy.

Yes, we have a large family and YES! we do have kids. Our kids are busy. They play a lot. But, overall, they are easy to keep up with.

What I find hard to keep up with is all of “my stuff”. The stuff that I have moved for the last–5 or 6 years. The stuff that I have “collected” and held onto just because, because I might need to some day, or because it’s a hobby in the family.

This last year and shown me exactly what I get to do and not to do with my time.

3 kids wear you out. Add in the daily household life and well–you’re lucky to get through a whole day with everyone alive. So, I am going to start eliminating the clutter and start adapting the space for what I do have time for.

I mean a schedule of kids 24/7, couponing, starting photography, and everything else–something has to give somewhere.

I am not giving my kids or my time up with my husband (that’s bare minimal as is). I enjoy couponing and can’t give it up because it allows us to actually have enough to eat and take care of basic needs, photography is a bit of a hobby right now–that I am trying to turn into a little bit of a money maker, and well–my “me” time is pretty much non existent.

Even as I am writing this post, it’s with nagging children at my ankles. Life as a mother.

So, with that, it is Time To Get Organized.

New Schedule

We have decided to homeschool. Plus, there’s babysitting and normal house chores but, the biggest thing is still my desire to bring in some form of income. Some days I hate it, other days, I love the distraction. Just wish finding the right job from home was easier. But, the search it’s going to continue a little this week.

Also, going to be throwing together some couponing research for classes.

But, for now, I have a bunch on my mind and should probably sort it out before trying to explain or put anything else into words.

Cleaning, list time, and some naptime.

And have I mentioned wanting to go back and finish my associate’s degree this summer?
