I have 15-20 women coming to stay in my home next weekend for a big retreat. I'm in the process of cleaning.

I've gone into closets I've not gone into in... 10 years.

It is easy to clean when you just say, "I'm throwing it all away..."

I'm going to have 15 bags for donations and big trash day is this week.

I'm not sure what's gotten into my husband and me. We're about to start some home renovations as well. I'm getting us on city water in the next month. We're redoing the back patio in a concrete stamp so it doesn't just look like a slab. The boys bedrooms are being repainted the first weekend in August. I'm starting to save money for renovating our last bathroom.

I have a long term and short term goal list that I keep on the fridge. We've been saving for the short term list and some of the old long term goals are now here.

So this is the year.

Next up... picking a color to repaint the inside of the house. I would love to do that next year.

It must be going around. New carpet over majority of house in 3 weeks, and new paint in 6 rooms. *Yes we really don't want our powder room to be 'Roll Tide!' red anymore, nor do we need the guest bathroom to be Disney Purple (ultra gloss), or the other guest bedroom to stay Tiffany Blue!!! The previous owners enjoyed color…AND theme rooms too…

LOL! I guess this is a preparation Fall cleaning.
