Random.

We are still rearranging around the Locklin house this weekend.  Clearing clutter, mostly mine, while I'm a crazy cleaner and major organizer I'm also a compulsive stacker.  I'm trying to learn a new way of putting together my "to-do's" without having the inevitable stack.  Since we have no office or even a desk,  the dining room table is where I do everything from serve dinner to sending email and writing letters.  At any one point I have one to a dozen letters to be mailed.  I love sending mail.  And I refuse to eat dinner with a cluttered table so I "stack and stash" when it comes to meal time.  Kevin has no problem with clutter but abhors my stacking ritual.   Tell me other people do this too? 

So to add to the bills to organize and what not, I just printed off an impressive 500+ photos to share with our parents and to add to Chloe's baby book.  But until I get them in the mail, guess where they are?  You guessed it, chillin' on my dining table.  Perhaps, I can get that taken care of today so we can be stack-free. 

P.S.  This is my first post in months without a bouncing baby girl on my knee or rolling near my feet.  And all I have to talk about it organizing.  I guess things are kinda boring around here without her?  She and Kevin went to the Bugs class at The Little Gym.  We love it there.  I'm sure she learned so new tricks to show me when they get home. 

In the meantime the house is so quiet.  I did enjoy a small glass of chilled wine and a soaked in some sun on our grass out front.  This is what I love most about the weekend quiet time and family.

Oh yes! We are a stacking family!! Mail accumulates on two different tables...and we have a desk! Clutter everywhere! Drives me insane! I've had to let it go because otherwise I'd just continue to stress.

At least I'm not the only one. There were big improvements made this weekend. So I'm starting to feel better.

oh how i know about stacking... i move my stack around so i don't feel as bad about it... try to hide it until i can get to it. it's just pitiful of me. but i think we're allowed to have a "stack" right?

Jessi we are so allowed to have a stack. My house is by no stretch perfect but I really want it to be most days. I'm trying to lighten up and get over it. :)
