To all you great mama's in this forum.<br><br>
I just had a wonderful, stressfree weekend, and I owe so much of the peace of mind to the decluttering inspiration I found here.<br><br>
I've been decluttering since early November and am pretty much thru the house. While I've seen the benefits from the beginning, this weekend really brought everything together.<br><br>
I was done with all cleaning by 9, both mornings (this is huge for me, since I work during the week, and usually save weekends for cleaning). The house was picked up, clutter free and pleasent to be in. I had time and energy to quilt both afternoons when the boys were napping, and could easily find what I needed, the space to do it, and the motivation to put it all away when they woke up. I even felt like I was caught up enough to enjoy lunch with a girlfriend, where normally I feel too far beind to do that.<br><br>
We had lots of snuggling, reading, baking and playing time without the house "hanging over my head". It was the most calm weekend I've had in forever. I'm starting to feel so on-top-of things -- and its awesome!<br><br>
I just wanted to say Thank you!

I love that feeling of being able to spend time with the kids without worrying about housework!!! Getting it done early is so releiving and frees up so much more time and positive energy for later. Good for you, mama!

Oh, I am SO happy for you. This is my biggest issue. I always feel pressured to take care of the house/laundry when I could be reading to the kids or watching a movie with them. Heck, I don't even watch TV unless I can multitask by folding laundry too. It sounds like your home is a wonderful place to be. Congratulations!
