where's all my junk?

i was just plopped down on my bed staring at pinterest (an hour and a half later... oops) and I saw a pin that said "i wish one of my personalities liked to clean..." i laughed for a minute, ha ha! but then i was like wait... i hardly ever have to clean anymore! and it's great! the only struggle is my daughter leaving random stuff about, i feel like i am constantly having to put something back in it's place--but at least everything has a place now. you can't win them all, i guess!

so i thought i would list the reasons i have gotten rid of a lot of my stuff & am planning my tiny house build, and why you should consider it too.

1. there is less to clean!
2. the above means there is more time... obviously for sites like pinterest ;)
3. getting rid of stuff just makes me feel refreshed
4. i only have about 4 loads of laundry including sheets for my bed and towels. (3 towels :)
5. my daughter only has about 2 loads of clothes to wash (did i mention i don't like laundry?)
6. dishes don't pile up (4 of each "multiples" items and a few stragglers)
7. i can see all of my stuff--it's not shoved away in boxes or an attic/basement
8. how proud will i be when i finish BUILDING my OWN house? how many people actually do this these days?! pretty awesome if i say so myself... and i do
9. sometimes old sentimental items should not be sentimental anymore.. ex's shirts, pictures, etc.
10. bigger and more isn't always better :)

late night dreams

wow, i have stopped writing on here for too long. so many things i wrote about have come to fruition, while other plans, ideas and goals have changed. i suppose that is the way life works, right? it is 7:16 am and i have yet to sleep. my step-sister was over chatting and working on other sister's wedding party details, and somehow i did not find my alone time, so here i am. so much anew, yet i simply choose to post a song i recently wrote. brain. not. active. enough. for full non-mumbo-jumbo blog. i have been writing some (not enough), just have not posted here. why? getting back to that now. i can feel the unwinding already...

we all just want to make it
but some of us just can’t take it
sometimes you have to fake it
till you can break in

we all have inspiration
i know i’ve got more than one
we follow our dreams
though it always seems
somehow they’ve just begun

late at night when you make it home
take off your clothes
push back your hair
some days i know
it just aint fair
but you lay down
on that queen size bed
and the dreams take over the daily dread
and you find the other side
where theres nothing to hide

bring it to life
you know what to do
take those dreams and see em through
you can’t let go when you stumble or fall
you gotta do, do it all
so you don’t look back and have to say
i wish i never threw it all away

late at night when you’re all alone
take off your clothes
push back your hair
some days i know
it just aint fair
but you lay down on that queen size bed
and the dreams start to fill your head
and you find the other side
where there’s nothing to hide
