I've been compiling a bit of a to-do list in my head lately (when am I not?!).
Things I need desperately to do, other things I would just love to try.
I scribbled a few of them down this afternoon, as a 'spring bucket list'; a compilation of things I would like to do before summer is upon us, bringing with it it's own list of to-do's.
We had a sleep over in the playroom last night, the five of us, as requested by the smalls.
Mattresses and blankets and pillows, and a cold, stormy night, Daniel and I joined sleeping kiddos on the floor. Sleepy, happy faces greeted us this morning, so delighted to find us there with them.
And today we enjoyed a lazy Saturday.
I have eaten too much, and done too little.
I can, however check one off of my to-do list, one of those things I've been putting off for a long time. The girls' room.
I cleared out drawers, bagged up old, and too-small clothes, and even all those clothes that I like but they will never wear. The ruthless in me rose to the surface, and out went every unnecessary item.
The desire to live a more simple, uncluttered life won over the need to hoard "just in case" things. Things. They're just things, after all.
I can see the top of each of the girls chests of drawers, and I feel like I can breathe again, when I walk into their bedroom.
Spring clean - check!
Next, I'm looking forward to checking off a few of the more fun items on my list - have you tried yoga? Is there anything you'd love to do as we move into the next season?
Write a list! Lets do it together!
I hope you've had the happiest of Saturdays.
