Lately I have been cranky, irritable, frustrated, depressed.....OK I think you get the idea. Part of it is the weather, part of it is being absolutely broke, part of it is that I work and am not a stay at home mom like I want to be, part of it is we have been in transition from house to house for the past 4 years. OK I can go on and on about what causing my "funk", but after looking around I think I figured it out.
Part of it I feel like we live in this
OK I know we do not live like this....it just feels like this sometimes
But I want to live in this
OK I realize this is not attainable realistically with a 3 year old and a 4 year old
So I have started a new quest. I read some where that you cannot be happy in life if you are not happy now. (or something along those lines). I decided I am the one that can change the state of my house and I cannot wait until Jeff has a job, we get into a house of our own, we have more money, etc. I need to start now. So I have been looking online for Dollar Store organization tips, ideas, etc. I have found some.
But where do you begin. I feel like everywhere I look I have an unfinished project. So my goal lately is to make a list of all the projects I have and finish them. I have banned myself of shopping at fabric stores. Unless I NEED something to finish a project. I have been working on quilt tops.
As I open the cupboard I am trying to group foods together. So all the peanut butter is in one spot. All the rice. ETC. As I work on my cleaning up, cleaning out, mood I will be taking pictures of before and after. Now all I have to do is wait for payday to tackle my first organizing project.
