After the garage sale this weekend, I'm feeling completely drained and exhausted; the house is TRASHED beyond recognition; and my obsessive compulsiveness is wanting to tackle it all and get it back in order pronto! However, I know myself well enough to know, that when I try to do it all, I get a serious case of burnout, it takes me a while to get back in the swing of things, and it just gets further out of hand.
So after church today, I started off small. Laundry and dishes seemed to be the thing that needed the most attention. I ended up doing three dishwasher loads of dishes, cleaning out four drawers in the kitchen (where those detestable rodents had visited), and 5 loads of laundry. I also put all of Eli's clothes away in their respective locations, and started on Bayleigh's clothes. (*I just love my clear plastic totes and they fit in the kid's new closets perfectly!)
Tomorrow I plan on putting up the rest of Bayleigh's clothes and then heading out to the garage to bag up a bunch of clothes for the Women's Shelter. We're still planning on keeping the best stuff for next Friday's garage sale, so hopefully I can get through the rest of my clothes before then. I'm definitely in simplifying mode.
Patience and Endurance
