Happily exhausted

I feel utterly exhausted! Today, it was originally meant to be a fun relaxing day- visiting an aunt-in-law and her baby, doing some shopping, visiting the library and do mild cleaning. As it turned out the only thing I did was cleaning - of course anything but mild!

In the end when my plan to meet up ended to nothing due to my cold and Jake not quite well either, I decided to forgo all other plans and start the decluttering of the house and dusting of cobwebs :) part 1 is now down but need anther 4 days to finish off! However with this thorough process, I am already feeling my spirits lifting. I always find myself wondering, how our surroundings at home, reflect our own state of mind, body & soul.

I am now off for a well deserved relaxing shower :) by which time, I hope my little puppy will be ready to sleep so I can enjoy my husband over a glass of wine and a DVD....I wish you all a nice weekend and happy halloween to those that celebrate it!

I hope you are feeling lot better and relaxed after a busy de-cluttering session.

Good luck with everything and hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I hope you're rested now. It's never fun at the time, but I feel in a better place with a clean house......

Oh, I so understand. I'm doing that at the moment too; I have the added incentive of a house party this weekend to celebrate my 40th...40th! Aaargh! It feels so good and how much better you feel with decluttering going on!

Mm...there really is nothing better than a DVD and a glass of wine with your husband after a day like the one you described.

You may very well have described my perfect date night. :)

I hope you had a fabulous night with the hubster (wine and dvd, sound yummy)!

I also feel better when my house is in order, it is when I am in a world of clutter, that I am at my worst, because of the lack of organization!

Great post!

Smooches,
Sassy Chica

I hope that wine was great! I had some myself tonight, in great company I must add, and it was awesome.

And to follow up on your wondering, I do believe that a mess around the house kind of reflects the state of our spirit. But the effect on us varies from person to person. For instance, I can't do anything when my house is messy, I just feel slow and not very productive. However, my little brother seems to prosper around absolute chaos, which drives me bunkers!

Hi, stopping by from SITS! :)

I love tidying up teh house and organizing things. Hubby usually never notices and messes everything up again but i enjoy the organization for as long as it lasts. :)
