Documenting the lives of a brown eyed girl with curls, and her baby brother's world.

A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps

Does anyone feel like "stuff" is taking over their house? Thinking about the possibility of moving in our future overwhelms me at all the "stuff" I'm going to have to pack up, sift through or throw away. I find tremendous satisfaction in throwing things away. I'm the opposite of a hoarder. I find no sentimental value in most things. This may be terrible, but I don't. I keep some special things in "memory" boxes, but I don't like "stuff" all over my refrigerator, hanging up in rooms, collecting dust on shelves, on top of dressers, thrown in a million toy boxes, etc. Something is wrong with me :)

Anyone else facing this dilemma?

Nope...not me! I am the opposite and you know that. Call me Papa or maybe Great Grandma :) I find sentimental value in everything all the way down to the letters I still have from Dustin in 8th grade... Now I am the one we need to worry about! Sometimes I get a wild hair though and throw out some stuff or Dustin does for me and I don't ever realize it.

Less is more!

I'm kind of inbetween. In the past, I've kept things, but I'm getting BETTER! I don't like clutter, so when I do keep something, it better be organized.

I rather someone get rid of it for me so that I don't have to know about it (like Taren).

BTW, I saw a picture of you, Taren and the girls on her blog. You look amazing. I can't even tell you've had a baby! WOW! I need your diet plan!
