Catching up and Rediscovering the Lateral

How did weekly planning go for you? If you’re still getting the hang of it, that’s fine. A good system will be able to change with your needs over time and you do have to find what works for you. As for right now, just try something anything that will get you moving towards less clutter and less stress.

By the way, we haven't talked about New Year's Resolutions lately. How are you doing? Are you sticking with it? Do you remember what it was? Make a plan and stick to it! I am 45% to my weight loss goal. The year is 25% over this week. You still have 75% of the year to catch up!!! Don't give up. You can do it!

Are you excited about Spring yet? Lots of Spring cleaning is going on in my corner of the world.

Spring is here! Take 15 minutes and… Clean off a flat surface. Pick one. Dresser top, dining table, kitchen counter top, desk, guest bed, floor (it really is NOT the largest shelf in your home) - Just choose one and GO! Sort into the main categories of Keep (find it a proper home), Belongs Elsewhere (put it there now), Trash (bye-bye). Wipe down the surface/change the bedding/give it a good vacuuming. Now you're all done!

Elli, I know I gave you a gardening tease, but (knowing that you are still under snow) it wasn't working for me. Tune in next week.

I never commented on this one! Sorry! A few weeks ago I cleared off my desk - that was my worst catch-all. Guess what?! It's still clean! I've been keeping up with it! We do have a section of the kitchen counter that everyone considers their own personal drop off zone...I'm going to try to retrain them...

I'm eager for the gardening thing because I know that you have a similar gardening mindset to mine, but since it doesn't yet feel like spring here, I'm not even ready to go out and look at my yard. Ergh. But I can't wait for the post!

I didn't realize you were just as interested in gardening as I am. LOL

Enjoy your week. Enjoy your Spring. I'm taking a Spring Break from blogging this week.

See you next week!
