Every other Friday at my house is known as Deep Clean Friday. I actually look forward to this day because I have the day off so I’m not scrambling to clean when I have a bunch of other things to do. After Daddy goes to work, James and I usually lounge around and eat breakfast, I drink my coffee, we play or go to the park, and when he goes down for his 10:30 nap, I start my cleaning. In full disclosure, I have help. James’ babysitter comes for a few hours and we clean together, chatting away and taking turns watching James and playing with him while he “helps”.
Just like the beginning of the new year encourages us to turn over a new leaf, Spring ushers in a desire to freshen up, declutter, and get organized. I think it has to do with warmer and longer days, and a need for simplicity so we can enjoy those days more, without all the “stuff” weighing us down.
As most of you know, I’m naturally pretty organized, but work and baby and life in general always has a way of interfering with my best plans to STAY organized and clutter-free. Every so often,
