Time to clean house, eh?


Holy Hannah, it’s March!  Unbelievable.  Grown up time is so unfair–each day just whizzes by at lightning speed.  Remember when it was practically a whole lifetime between the sunrise and that sad realization that the street lights were on and it was time to trudge home after a full day of play?  Yeah…those were the freaking days.

Soooo…..How are those 2012 resolutions coming along?  Just kidding!  Me neither.  But ya know what?  Time to get back on the horse, as they say.  February kinda kicked my proverbial butt–for example, I haven’t even been in the shop since Wednesday due to a nasty tummy flu that TRUST ME you DO NOT want to get.  Before that, each of my family members took a turn with it, and before that we had about two weeks of passing a head cold/sinus/fever thingy around.  We are a very sharing family, it seems.  Lucky us, haha!

But TODAY I am feeling back to my real, chipper self, hoorah!  Do you ever feel like you bounce back from sickness feeling strangely renewed?  My hubby and I have been only wanting very clean, healthy foods, as if it is suddenly easier to hear what our bodies are probably trying to tell us all the time.  And my energy is super great today (quite the contrast to the lie-on-the-couch-and-watch-WAY-too-much-Friday-Night-Lights week I just had), so the day was spent very happily cleaning up our ginormous house mess (no Mom = yikes!) and taking a lovely walk in the beautiful sunshine with my family.  I wonder, is this what those “body cleanse” things are all about?

Just in time for my renewed commitment to better living (back to those resolutions!) and my upswing in energy, good old Tsh over at Simple Mom is launching her annual Project Simplify!  Take a gander at all the lovely details here, and let me know in the comments if you’ll be joining in.  I’ll be posting my progress on Sundays, and I hope you’ll share yours, too!

I don’t love cleaning, but, if it has to be done, “spring cleaning” is my favorite!  Why, you ask?  Because it means Spring is on the way!!

Are you a clutter bug?  What are your hot spots for disorganization?  And do all the spring changes outside inspire you to get your house ready for the new season?
