Vacation is over for the kids. They went back to school yesterday. After over a week of getting nothing at all accomplished, I'm trying to get back into my groove.
It's always amazing to me how busy Christmas is. Making gifts, shopping, wrapping, socializing and lots of cooking make for a very busy month. When you add to that Hubby's computer business going into overdrive just before the holidays, it's quite exhausting. This week is all about taking back my life. There are still plenty of computers to be repaired, but not to the point that I can't get other things done.
To that end I'm putting quick meals in the freezer and getting the house cleaned and organized. I'm not the best housekeeper in the world, but I appreciate a nice neat house as much as the next gal. I hate clutter and disorganization, so that is my usual incentive to clean. We're purging lots of crud that has built up over the years. It makes me so happy to see these things leave my house.
While I purge, I think about what it would be like to pack up my house. It's not a big house, but there are lots of things we've accumulated. We're contemplating moving from our beloved neighborhood in the next year or so. Who knows whether we'll actually do it, but getting rid of excess is never a bad thing in my book.
Now it's time to move on with the never ending to-do list.
