About

I started this blog because I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I knew that I was very blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom.  I knew this about my three beautiful boys too.  They are 3, 5 and 7 years old.  But I woke up one day in a compulsively messy house, a prescription for depression, anxiety and migraine medications and the only thing I looked forward to each night was when the kids fell asleep and I could binge watch whatever television show me and my husband were addicted to at the moment.  This was not how I imagined my life.  I had so much laundry piled up on our sectional sofa that my kids would frequently get lost in it looking for clean underwear.  I’m done.  I want to enjoy my children and I want to have a less cluttered home to be able to do the things I want to do with my kids.  I realized when I started getting rid of some of our stuff, my mind started to heal and clear up.  I wanted to play board games with my kids instead of be tempted to give them melatonin gummies at 6pm just so I could get a break.  It helped my husband as well.  Although he isn’t as keen on throwing out “stuff” as much as I am.  We noticed we yelled less, big stress issues like finances and other marital things wouldn’t seem so big and detrimental.  So I am going to be posting all about my journey and progress.  I am just now starting.  Granted, I have already given away 8 trash bags full of clothes, and just as many bags of actual garbage, there is still so many things to do.  This is me and my family.  Take us or leave us.  We are not perfect.  Matter of fact we are SUPER flawed.  But we are an open book.  Hopefully it will have a happy ending.  I will make sure of that.

Peace and Love,

Christal
