My bedroom had become a playground and laundry storage center and I had to reclaim my domain this week. Laundry, books, toys and anything belonging to anyone else other than the people that sleep there -all gone. My jetted tub is accented by a small stone fountain, -and I mean small, and candles, No more rubber duckies or kiddie loofahs. Walking into my Master Suite now evokes peace and tranquility. No more stress and chaos in my resting place. I do thank FlyLady.com for the inspiration and Miss Shaun T for the jump start and who in about an hour and a half- helped me bag and box up 4 large boxes of stuff for the salvation army, and inspired me to create a space that requires less maintenance for my little people I still think we can still do away with more books and toys. She was ruthless and I found myself explaining myself when she asked me whether or not I needed certain things. She was tough but, tough is what I needed. I know that this is the beginning of something great. And it feels so freeing! It's a huge challenge for those of us who school at home but, my goal is to be done by November 1. Less stuff=Less stress.
