Wednesday is here and BOY WHAT A WEEK!!!!!!!

My oldest, Kyle is moving in with Bo and I. We are so very excited about having him. Of course, Little Man is not really aware what is going on but knows that for some strange reason, the extra room in the house is all of the sudden clean.....Hmmmmmmm
We have moved stuff, stored stuff, cleaned out and thrown stuff away. Where in the world did it all come from in the first place???? Funny how we become such pack-rats. I think that I am becoming a "Minimalist", you now those that don't want the clutter? I think I would really like that but at the same time with a 3 year old in the house and his love for matchbox cars, that is not likely to happen anytime in the near future.
At one point in my life, I had lost a massive amount of weight and when I had made the decision that I was NOT going there again, I cleaned out my closet. Let's just say that Good Will was VERY happy to see me that day with approx 7 trash bags of clothes. Going back was not an option. I still live by that rule and if things start getting to where they don't fit, it's an easy reminder to not go there because I have NO clothes to fall back into.
What do you do when you reach a goal with your clothes?
Do you keep them?
Do you put them in storage?
Give them away?
Kyle is moving in slowly but surely, bringing things a little at a time. He appeared last night with this huge laundry basket. Of course it was FULL!!!! and probably weighed a ton. He came in the front room and we all just died laughing at the fact that he brought over all of his dirty laundry and no clean clothes. He proceeded to separate them and put them in the washer. Of course we joked about that for a while. It's going to be great having him around the house. I am just thrilled. It's been a long time!!!!! I have missed him more than he knows.
Things are on the change at home. Things are getting busy again with Mothering The Mother. I have a client in October, possible November and a possible for February. Busy Busy Busy but that is always good and very exciting.
Hope your day is good and we will talk again soon.

Laboring With You,
Doula Mama Pam

Minimal living is a good thing for me! But, I don't have a little one running around. I don't fill up the cabinets, drawers or closets in my house. My summer to winter wardrobe changes easy - I just add long johns and a sweater to what I wear in the summer. It's a good thing! Must admit that I miss Kitchen gadgets and pantry items! But, again ..... it's all good!
I miss you dear one. So glad to keep up a little through your blog. I love you!
