Making Room

Why are we so attached to stuff? I found myself looking around my house today looking for some things to donate to a garage sale to raise money for a mission trip, wondering how I acquired so much and why I feel the need to keep it all.

I piled up a whole dining room table full of this stuff and can't even tell a difference in my house. It made no dent. None. Ridiculous.

I am taking a brief blog break because I caught myself going to the attic to get everything-if it's up there WHY do I feel the need to keep all this crap?! (with the exception of Christmas decor, which is sacred and holy...that stays).

I recognize my other half will need to give his opinion before I tell them to take everything, even the dishes. But my goal is now to get rid of as much as possible....because I'm making room!! (for what....that's to be determined)

I'll keep you posted on the status of the purge of the meaningless sanchez junk. (WHY do we have 200 CDs...they are all on our iTunes.) (WHY do I have 7 curtain rods in the closet) (WHY do we have 45 coffee cups)

If its not nailed's gone.

'til next time! (which may be a while. Chances of getting rid of the computer and cell phone are high right now!)

Return of the Mother

So, I've been MIA for a while, but I was just busy with my sweet baby girl who is now TWO MONTHS OLD.  Two whole months.  And I have loved every single moment of her little life.  Seeing a tiny person with the best parts of you and your spouse makes life seem so simple and pure.  I love it!  I love being a mother.  (especially because I can watch Grey's Anatomy for approximately 3 hours every day).

Also...I started running again.  It's been rough.  I currently have a love/hate relationship with running.  It's mostly hate right now.  Running needs to send me flowers and chocolates so we can make up.  My goal is to get back together with running before November when I plan to run the DRC half, but we are talking to other people right now.  I hope running doesn't get jealous of yoga....They can have each other when I swear off exercising all together.

I'm off to see just how much I can make a certain little girl smile and giggle.

Until next time!
