I am excited!
I have been making major changes in my life one step at a time. Next week I am going to camp for a career change. Yay!! I am not entirely sure if I am ready for eight hour days of activity. I have been working towards this goal and in the last month with no other changes other then taking care of life and staying moving I have lost ten pounds. I sleep a lot harder now and I am happier for it.
Yesterday, I listed 657 books on ebay. I am purging them out of my house and hoping the money will help pay for camp. What does not sell by the time I go to leave are getting donated. I am finally closing the door on the huge need to be surrounded by many, many books to read. My husband is tickled and a little apprensive. He is worried that in the future I will just replace them. I am not going to. I have realize what a money, time and happiness drain that is. Nope, I will get one or two at a time and if I can't check it out I will listed it to be sold as soon as I am done with it.
Two weeks ago I realized that I can't organize with a darn and asked my mother and husband to help. We have come a long way. It was disappointing when we took seven garbage bags of childrens clothing out to be donated and could not see any progress any where. We have realized that I own almost nothing that fits. So, I am taking the few that do fit and after camp, I am going to get a few outfits that do. The rest will be donated. I don't ever intend to wear that big of clothing again.
I have spent more time just enjoying the kids and they are just the cutest darlings!
I am seriously considering blocking most of my facebook games except for one or two that I like. I just haven't yet because I am worried that I will get bored. My willpower is awful.
Also, as far as my financial life goes we are okay just not great. Just stable. I am going to tackle the rest a little bit at a time. I am hoping that by doing that we can afford gas to take the kids to lakes and parks around here.
I still have hoards of stuff to get rid of and cleaning to get to. I am using camp as a good ending and start time for the house. The kids are taking the clothes that they want to keep to the various places they are staying and the rest of the house is going to be cleaned out...including the pantry and kitchen. My husband doesn't bake anyways.
So, I feel better and get more done now and yet I do get very tired some days. It is a start. This has been a very eventful year so far.
