Out with the old...again

The new year brings so many promises and resolutions for many. I used to be pretty good at this as well.
This year I made no promises just small goals to try and reach...I have been slowly decrapitizing my home. Man where did all this shit come from?
A lot...ok most of it is my fault, I sew, make cards, scrapbook, paint, collect fabric and clothing....and I keep starting small home based businesses.
I have managed to clean out my kitchen cupboards and remove 15 year old spices from the one. I have disposed of old appliances to freecyle and my living room has stayed"non embarrassing...pretend your not home when surprise company shows" for weeks....proud of my self.
Bedrooms I keep starting . but they never get finished then quickly get disastrous again.
The basement is my next goal....holey crap looks like the house threw up down there! It is the dumping grounds for everything.To expose my shame I will post some before pics(after I have some afters to share)
There are so many things I want to do with the house and never seem to get help to do them. I have always had the desire to have a little better, a change, nice things...hubby could care less.
I never could understand how you can watch things fall apart in your home and not give a dam.....oopse almost a hubby vent...I'll leave that for another day..lol

Well I could go on...but I seem to get nauseated when I am on the computer too long (concussion side affects!) another story :)

I cleaned the whole house yesterday, even my bedroom which is usually just a dumping ground AND today...you can't tell..not one bit!

We did have two birthdays for the princess four year old but still...

Hang in there!

Ugh, I so relate. And I really need to get on the decluttering to make room for the next one!
I read on someone's blog the other day that she doesn't look at it as cleaning. She is just removing layers. cuz with kids and husbands around it never stays tidy or clean for long, but she can keep the layers from getting too deep.
