The winds of change are blowing
I am beginning to see what an un cluttered life will be like. Some rooms are very successful (kitchen/baths) as far as being uncluttered. The kitchen is there too if you don't count the dining room which is covered every surface. I am making progress but it is soooooo slow!!
My energy level has been shot. I think it is because when we re-introduced sugar, I went a little crazy with carbs. Carbs are like that. They always want to play and do fun stuff. Hang out with you and watch TV. The complex carbs I am hanging with now say, "Come on Janice, you're not hungry. Drink some more water and go to bed." Today is the first day I woke up and did not swear I was wearing lead pajamas.
I am also trying to be more environmentally correct (but mostly it is for my hands and nose) and clean with vinegar and baking soda. Cheap is a nice plus. That cleaning aisle at Walmart will kill the budget! I have been doing this in the kitchen for months now. I waited to use up all my other bathroom stuff to make the switch in there. I was also very doubtful that it could clean tub scum. I ran a bit of hot water, made a baking soda paste and rubbed it on the sides of the tub. Then I sprayed the vinegar all around on that paste and let it sit a minute or so. My tub just sparkles. I am amazed. My hands are so happy. Vinegar is also a natural deodorizer so my house is starting to smell like nothing. I love it to smell like nothing...or the candle I choose to burn.
This is my last year for scouts and I let everyone know it at the beginning of the year. I have my first casualty now. If they start dropping like flies, I don't think I can last the year out. This particular one is at odds with her cousin who is also in my troop-but still, her mom is awesome, a big help and it will be really hard to see them go. Please let everyone else stick it out to the end!! It is always hard to lose a girl. I second guess myself to death. I should just let it go, let it flow, its OK. Now cleansing breath...
I can't wait to get snowed in and not be able to leave the house. I would like to be home long enough to develop cabin fever, anybody with me?????
