Busy... busy... dreadfully busy....

I must admit... I LOVE veggie tales. Especially when Madame Blueberry sings the "busy" song. That's how I feel lately... BUSY. It's starting to make me crazy.

I've been reading this blog - Simple Mom quite a bit lately and have been SO inspired. I so desire a simple life for myself and my family. All the running we do seems to make us grumpy and tired. All the tv we watch seems to make us bored when it's not entertaining us. Kind of lame.

My goal over the next few weeks is to finish up the MANY projects I've started. The shutters... painting the great room (those of you who REALLY know me... you can stop laughing now)... cleaning carpet... purging stuff.

Even the kids are getting in the spirit - we're having a garage sale on June 12. They've already started sorting through their STUFF - keep pile, garage sale pile, and goodwill pile. I'm so proud! :)

So please stay tuned... summer is JUST around the corner! Sounds like a great time for me to get less busy (ha ha ha) and practice being simple...

  1. I LOVE Simple Mom and her back to basics. I'm trying to do the same thing with all the clutter and madness. Ahh the great room...I did chuckle. There are things on my list like that too, I think we all have them.
