Busy little bee!

I wish I had more time to write in my blog. I feel like I run all day and when I get a moment to rest I just lose myself in meaningless games on Facebook. I decided that it's time to change things around here. I deactivated my Facebook for the time being. I'm working really hard to catch up on all my reading, and I'm doing a decluttering 'challenge'.

This is what I am doing:
First, grab a garbage bag, laundry basket, or—if it’s really bad—an army tank, and set a timer for 10 minutes. Gather at least 15 – 20 items to give away. As you meander through the rooms of your house, ask yourself these questions:
1. Do I use this?
2. Do I have a place for this?
3. Is this item useful?

If the answer to any of these questions is “no” (that’s right—any—not all of these questions), then get rid of it. You’re simplifying your life so you can breathe easier and so God’s Word can have its full effect in your life, remember?
Once the timer goes off, take the contents from your bag, laundry basket, or army tank out to your car and drop your donations off at The Goodwill. That’s just one option, of course—you can “gift” your stuff to a friend. You know what they say . . . “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”

I got this here I thought it was a really good thing to do. I feel like most days that I'm drowning in our stuff! Every drawer is full, the closets are a disaster, and toys seems to be mulitplying, or reproducing, or cloning themselves (or whatever it is that toys do) at a fantastic rate.

Plus other things here and there like the blankets I'm making for friends and family that are pregnant, trying to do the Love Dare with my husband and a million other things that I have on my plate right now.

I seem to have gotten in over my head right now so my little blog has suffered. SO for my followers, or anyone that comes across this, I haven't abandoned my blog. I'm just taking some time to unbury myself for the time being. The only posts I'll have for right now are my book reviews but I'll be back :)
