I can’t believe it… But I did this. The past few days have been great- lots of time being with my kiddos- which is great. Truly! 🙂 But today mama was really needing a breather. You see, the babysitter has been sick 😕 and the hunny bunny works loooong days and well into the night 🌙 and that leaves me and the kids. All day. Which is great. Did I say that already? Lol But today for whatever reason, my oldest was being super clingy to mommy- like he didn’t want to miss out on anything I might do- any movement, sneeze, or the slightest stretch- he had to have a front row seat to it all. “Whatcha doing?” … “Where are you going?”
…. I walk into the bathroom and I hear him at the door (along with the cat dog who are trying to get in as well) saying, “Mommy, I want to give you another hug!” Very, very sweet. 💜
But by the time I got the kids to bed, I Just needed a breather. Because though I LOVE my kids more than life, and though I thoroughly enjoy being with and around people, I have to come up for air! 🙂
So needless to say, I needed a mommy moment. But I also have a never-ending list of to-do’s…. So my “me time” was spent scrubbing the bathroom – in silence 🙂 … And I liked it! 😉 The only sound coming in was my hubby snoring in the next room (he cuts serious logs!)
… But I did something else besides just clean; something I have been wanting to do and finally did in the bathroom- I got rid of ALL the stuff I don’t use! Ahhh, Serenity! 😍
Clutter stresses me out. 😳 Too much “stuff” makes me feel closed in. I like wide open spaces- I’m a country girl after all 🙂 It felt Soooo good throwing out all the things I no longer use!
Ever since I switched to all-natural living, I literally have ONE cleaner for my ENTIRE house – because it’s all I need! And I don’t need 54,982 make-up and beauty products because I found what works and what is good for me so I can happily say “see ya!” to the rest!
My space is clear, my mind is clear and I am totally writing this from the tub at 3am 🙂 (someone had to test out the sparkling tub so I took one for the team 😉)
Here is a little holiday advice from the DIY Diva: ditch what you don’t need, don’t use and what isn’t good for you!
Keep it simple. Peace of mind. Health. Family. 💜
