Clutter Frustration

OK. New post for the day. This is what I wanted to write about before I started reading on The Pioneer Woman. I've got to start setting a timer or something.

I have got to get rid of stuff. I'm going on a clutter-busting rampage. There is just no point in bringing a bunch of junk with us to Arkansas. It's ridiculous how much stuff piles up around here. Now granted, this apartment is a big part of the problem. There's really just no place to put even the necessary stuff. But still. I could do better.

So I'm posting this blog and getting busy before the kiddos wake up. But first I need to change out of this bathrobe (see earlier post). And I need to get the meatloaf in the oven. Then maybe I'll have 10 minutes before someone wakes up. Oh well. I'll let you know how it goes.

For what it's worth, I am doing better with the laundry. Well, at least it's being cleaned more frequently. The putting-away part still needs lots of improvement.

Uh oh. Megan is awake....

3:29 PM and wearing my bathrobe

So it's 3:29 PM, and I'm sitting at my computer in my bathrobe.

It's not really as bad as it sounds. I got up reasonably early this morning (Megan slept all the way until 7 AM - Go Megan!), and we went to MOPS (after the usual struggle to get out the door). Nathan was in his bed headed for naptime (hopefully), and I was feeding Megan a just-before-naptime bottle. Then she spit up all over me and the couch. YUCK! I love her dearly. I really don't want her to grow up any faster than she already is. But when will the spit-up end?? I can only hope that we will be able to get new furniture before too much longer. That couch has definitely seen better days. But anyway, that's why I got into my bathrobe to begin with.

That was over an hour ago. Then I started reading. I have recently discovered The Pioneer Woman, and I am completely enthralled reading her love story of how she met her husband and went from city girl to rancher. I just finished part 25 of about 50. Maybe there will be time tonight to read a few more installments. I highly recommend it, but know that it's very addictive.
