3 tornadoes; my kids.

Hello Everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted here.  I'm right now sitting on the only available seat in my living room.  Ever since I've had Nate I have been not only behind, but I'm starting to feel like a hoarder.  It's not as bad as all of that, but it can feel REALLY overwhelming at points.  I'm sure you know what I mean. 

My problem when it comes to cleaning:  I look at the whole picture instead of what's directly in front of me.  I can't see the forest for the trees.  Just like I can't see the carpet through the mess.  sigh.  Well, luckily it's clutter mess, not filth mess.  My whole house can be cleaned in less than a few days uninterrupted, (including laundry) IF I don't turn on the TV or climb onto my computer, or pick up a scrapbook or make some cards, etc.  (check out one of my crafting blogs HERE!)  Another problem I have is I'm a constant human feeding machine.  (a SSHD way to save money; breastfeed!)  I have to stop every couple of hours to feed/change diapers/ rinse out diapers/ etc.

So, having made homemade cleaners, I'm going to work on a way to declutter, especially since we're moving soon.  Don't know where (yay, Army!) and have a general idea of when- December(ish) timeframe.  I want to get as much done now, before I have to worry about "what do you mean we have 3 weeks?!".

I'll keep everyone posted.  Remember, it's SMART, SAVVY, Homemaker Diva.  Handling things on a one-at-a-time basis is smart.  I just need to keep reminding myself- housework is a process not a destination.  it will NEVER be "done".  sigh.
