After much soul searching, thinking, FB inquiring, and bouts of “OHMYGOSHIMSOSICKOFALLOURSTUFFIJUSTWANTTOTHROWITALLINTHETRASHNOW!!!!!!!”, I’ve made a decision.
We’re going minimalist.
Think of it as an elimination diet for the soul.
These kids have been fighting over every last thing in this house, so its disappearing for awhile.
I figure they need:
3. A bed
4. prayer time
7. outside playtime
For now, that’s it. And please don’t give me the “but the children need toys to learn” business right now because I just gashed my leg on the kickstand of my bike that someone knocked over in the garage but didn’t bother to pick up and then I stepped on a sewing needle in my daughter’s room that was STUCK in my foot.
I’m just glad I had a tetanus shot a few years ago.
I’ve got a LOOOONG weekend ahead of me, but this. will. get. done. In fact, that’s why I’m putting it on the blog. I need some accountability. And I’ll let you know how my little social experiment goes. From what I’ve heard, it should go well. I’ll let you know.
