It’s the beginning of Lent.
It’s 40 days before Easter (not counting Sundays). Many Catholics won’t eat meat on Fridays and/or make a sacrifice for the time leading up to Easter. 8 years of Catholic school talking.
There was even a movie. This year, I decided to give up clutter. I got the idea to do this during Lent on the blogosphere. Mostly, my clean up is related to my basement. It’s sad. Every time I clean it up, we filthify it again because nothing has a place it’s just a mess.
A bike for every child, sometimes 2 per kid.
Where spray paint cans go to die?
Air mattress under the stairs, everyone has one, right?
I started cleaning this weekend with books and clothes and I’m hoping the energy doesn’t fade. I felt the weight lift as I went to Goodwill. Still a lot more to do…but I really want to walk down here and feel good about it and not depressed.
It’s all a part of my master plan, to Live Simply. Easier said than done.
