What I've been up to...

I think I'm finally out of survival mode. Which makes me happy! It took me a long time after Hannah was born to get out of... Yes, probably because I had just had my first baby six months before I got pregnant with my second one. And so I had never had time to get out of survival mode with Emily.. I guess the time just added to each other or something. But Abigail is almost 6 months old.. And I'm really feeling like things are looking up. We still don't get to much sleep. BUT! Our house is really getting back in order. Not like it was before we had Abigail.. BUT WAYYYY BETTER! I'm so excited. We have three major more projects to do. And then I think our house will be a lot more efficent.
I read this quote online that goes something like this, "when decluddering, ask yourself: is this item worth the time." I've been getting rid of tons of stuff that is just taking up my time and space to clean. We've given like 4 bags to Goodwill of stuff, we've given away to people we know a bunch of stuff, and we have thrown away like 3 bags full of stuff! I'm loving this! I seriously a becoming a "throw away/give away/get out of my house"-aholic. Each bag gives me another breath of relief.. One bag lesss of stuff to clean and waste my time and space on! The girls are learning

We've gotten the back and front room downstairs taken care of, pretty much. We just finished the girls room (i actually got pictures). We have our room, the kitchen (which i don't think will take much), and our storage closet left!

I've got so much more planned instead of having to clean, and get no where. I am almost ready to start my card system. I'm excited! (i should really be doing dishes instead of blogging.. but that's okay.)

Here's the pictures!.. sorry kids are being needy.. check out the pictures on facebook if you really want to see them!

Awesome! We've been decluttering too, but you can't really tell yet. LOL I heard a similar quote about decluttering, but it was "ask yourself if it blesses your home." Um...yeah. A lot of our stuff is NOT blessing our home!
