I’m the biggest liar huh? While honestly I would love to update this thing regularly I’ve accepted I am one of THE worst at time management. No joke, it’s pathetic.
I had my beautiful baby girl in December & she’s been absolutely AMAZING! Sadly, I’m back to work but I loved my time off with her & look forward to spending my evenings with her. She’s a super good baby which helps things also – she’s absolutely the best!
I always try to do updates after being MIA so here goes:
The budget is still non existent. I try & I at least plan out most of my paychecks but I can’t grasp the budget in a way that will work for more. I haven’t given up though & still pin stuff to read later when I’m browsing pinterest at the early AM feeding. I’m hoping one day it will click for me.
The nesting didn’t really last. I did some stuff but my house is still a disaster. It’s so far from what I want it to be. I don’t know how people have such clean & nice homes most of the time. They can’t have dogs that shed & a full time job lol Sweeping I don’t mind & it doesn’t take long but I can never seem to stay on top of the dog hair it’s crazy. Laundry is about the only thing I can keep up good with & that’s pushing it because I make it all the way to being folded but struggle with getting it into the drawers. At least we have clean clothes though, right?
I’ve been in the mood a lot recently to just purge & get rid of the stuff especially since we don’t have the room for it & I’ve had it with being cluttered in. So here’s to hoping the mood stays with me. I remember back when I did a big cleaning before I was with Paul & had the front bedroom showing SO much carpet & I was so proud. The kiddo is in there now & the poor guy has a good bit of our clutter to deal with simply because we don’t have room at this house. Some of it can go though & I plan to go through it soon to get rid of it. I want him to like his room & for him to want to keep it clean.
We really don’t have any broken or junk stuff, we just have a lot of stuff we don’t exactly NEED. It could be useful stuff IF we had the room for it. That’s the mentality I have to get past – that just because it’s still good & useful doesn’t mean I need to keep it. I don’t have the room for it therefore it’s of no use to me. Paul is bad about that too which doesn’t help things but we’re both trying to purge down what we can as we still continue to combine 3 houses – yikes. I’ll try to update this more, I promise. Hopefully I’ll be back with tons of great before & afters … hopefully.
