Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning has come a bit early around the Smithwick household. Today I decided that some of our closets, drawers, and cabinets needed to be cleaned out. Fred and I are coming up on our one year anniversary and I needed to get rid of the 10,000 Bed, Bath, and Beyond gift bags and 5,000 white tissue paper sheets.

I am also sorting through all of my shower pictures, wedding cards, etc. I want to make a scrapbook one day to show our children our wedding.

I am not nearly done cleaning, but I hope to clean out the remainder of the closets tomorrow or Friday. There are so many gift boxes and things that are still around from our wedding and they need to go.

I have got to learn to be more organized and not to keep everything. Does anyone else have this problem?

Fred and I have had a lot of time to do things around the house. Last week, Fred mulched our front, back and side yards. He also put down rocks so that Knox couldn't crawl under the fence. And today he put up a fence board to keep Knox inside our gate. These are things that needed to be done a year ago, but we just didn't have the time.

I need to give something up for Lent, but I can't think of anything. Does anyone have any good ideas?

I totally have a problem with keeping everything, but being married has helped because Stephen throws away everything. LOL I have purged a lot, but I still have a ways to go.
