We made it!!

We're here at my parents' house! Yes, it's not a vacation in the sense of lying on the beach drinking a margarita or anything, but the thing that's so awesome is not having to be in charge of any of the cooking or cleaning! Dude, I *hate* cleaning.

That's not actually true, as I think about it...I don't hate cleaning, what I hate is not having the time or energy...or having them and having my efforts TRASHED 20 seconds later, which is what happens and is so demoralizing.

I'm also coming to grip with the idea that we're just DROWNING in STUFF and we really, really need to get rid of it. I'm so bad at letting go of things, and we just need to do it. I need to get inspired. If I could have a week at home with no kids or husband, I think I could get a lot done, but that's not happening any time soon!

Anyway, I'm hoping to keep up the posting while here, we'll see!

I totally feel the same way about cleaning and stuff. I think it's just a fact of having small kids. I have a friend who is a professional organizer, and she recommends getting rid of 10 things each day. Enjoy the time at your parents'!
