Re: Daily Check In September 12, 2015

We will be happy to cheerlead you through your decluttering. :) It sure helped me to post about my own great declutter in the Decluttering thread on the forum. The weather here in Tennessee is simply gorgeous today. High of 73 F., brilliant blue sky and a light breeze. I could get used to this! I ha...

Will be doing more of that today, as my plans consist entirely of doing housecleaning. Sh...

Re: Daily Check in Sept 11, 2015

I keep it in my heart, but avoid the news. Most of my day was spent thoroughly cleaning our home office, which has...
