I don't know what is going on with my crazy sleeping cycle, but every single morning I wake up around 4:30 a.m. and can't go back to sleep. It's literally driving me crazy because I feel like I'm not completely there during the day and it's making me irritable as well.
Getting older stinks sometimes, LOL. I was always a night owl when I was younger, but now I fall asleep earlier in the night (well if you call 10:00 early) and like an inner alarm clock 4:30 comes around and I'm popping awake. Uggh!!!!!!
My last consignment sale is early this morning and I couldn't be happier because I think participating in four of them is more than enough, LOL. I'm so tempted to take everything that doesn't sell to Good Will, but I know I probably will only do that with some of the items and save the rest for the next spring/summer sale next year. Of course some items can go to the fall/winter sale (jeans, etc.) so I'll probably hang on to most things.
I am in such a decluttering mood right now that any small amount of clutter drives me nuts. I've been searching the house up and down for any possible item/items that could be taken with me and I think I've got anything that the kids will let take with me packed up in the car, tagged, and ready to go, LOL.
I'm shocked that I'm still finding too large clothes in my closet because I thought I had it weeded out pretty well, but I'm still finding shirts that are way too blousy on me and I'm gathering those to take to Good Will.
For the longest time I haven't had the house the way I like it to be (very organized) because that's hard to do with kids. It's much easier if you're single and it's just you, but with 4 people living in one home, there seems to be all this extra "stuff".
My kids tell me that I want to get rid of everything, but I really don't, I just want anything that takes up space that is never used or has no purpose out of here. I keep telling the kids if they are willing for me to sell some of their unused items (hence tons of Lego's, etc.) that they will get the money if they sell, but so far they haven't agreed although they haven't picked them up to play with them in over a year.
My son loves to put Lego kits together and then they sit there and get dusty and I have to move them and dust underneath his collection. I wouldn't mind it if he actually played with them after they were put together, or he took them apart and put them back together over and over, but they sit there gathering dust and looking lonely. The same thing with my daughter, she has tons of them but never does anything with them.
