Hoarding: When Too Much is Truly Too Much

We’re all quite aware of what clutter is and how it can not only adversely affect how our household functions, but also how it can also have a negative impact on our health. But this isn’t the full extent of how bad things can actually get.…

I am such an unorganized, kinda messy, sometimes lazy, scatterbrained, procrastinating person. It really is awful trying to get anything done because nothing in my mind gets done through my actions. I start putting something away, find something that belongs somewhere else, and then start doing stuff in that room. Before I know it, half the day is gone, I've been super busy and have accomplished nothing. Nothing is in it's place, because it doesn't have a place. Also, lately, it feels as if my DD 4 always wants me to play with her, and I wind up telling her "mommy's too busy right now" and I still don't get what I was trying to do done! Now, please don't get me wrong, I don't neglect my DD, we have mommy/daughter time every single night when DS 6 months goes to sleep, BUT, I do wish I would stop being quite as selfish, and give her the extra time she craves and deserves!........ WHEW!...... I have made the first step towards recovering....admitting I have a problem! Now, to move forward.....

So, this past week I have rediscovered FlyLady, and I am hooked! I tried it once before, but could not handle that she wanted me to do everything in "babysteps". Little did I realize, that is why I never got anything done, I was to busy trying to do everything at once that nothing got finished, and by the end of it all, I had a bigger mess than I started with! Talk about frustrating. Alas, I have decided I would give the program another go, and get busy getting my house decluttered, and to a constant state of cleanliness so that seasonal cleaning never needs to be done!!!! Plus, I will still be getting my housework done, AND be making time for DD to play whenever she wants! I don't want to be too busy for her, she will only be small once, and I want her memories to be of a mommy who took that extra time to make her feel special! *tears are starting ~ Ok, Teresa, keep it together, you are working to make things different!!* Sorry, just needed a little pep talk so as to keep myself from falling apart!!

That aside, I look forward to starting fresh, taking a new outlook on life, making a difference in the organization in my home AND life.  Lowering my stress factor will be one of  the benefits my family and I will reap.

Ok, now we're going to left field, as my husband would say, and on to a different topic...

I would also like to take this time to introduce yet another series I have just thought up today. Starting Monday, I would like to introduce "Mommy's Favourite Monday". Now, I know what you're thinking! "What, favourite Monday, that's absurd, there is no such thing as a favourite Monday, well, except maybe a holiday Monday!" But, wait, this will be a series where can you can actually look forward to Monday! The premise is this. I will pick a topic.... say....laundry detergent...and I will tell you my favourite and why. Then, as a help to others, I want you to leave a comment telling me your favourite and why. I think this will be a great way to do "mini-reviews" and to introduce other moms to different products they may not have heard of or tried.

I would also like to know if there is a certain topic you would like covered, to see what others think about it. If so please send me an e-mail @    I look forward to getting some feedback so we can make Monday a day to look forward to!

This first Monday, I will be covering my favourite stain remover. So, grab your thinking cap, your stain remover, and get ready to tell me why it's the best! I look forward to hearing what you have found to be the best! See you Monday!
