Subject: RE: BS: Nov 2010 Declutter & Exercise reports
Laundry, dishes, floors, bedding changed and washed. Another box of sitting STUFF from the music room gone through. Pete bought me some new music to play yesterday so that technically is adding to the pile but it has 2 songs that I love and it came with a CD so I have the entire orchestra backing me through the stereo...love it!

On the baby front, I found that my instincts are right on about some people. There has been a woman who has wanted to babysit for us and when she holds our son, I can see she is uncomfortable and nervous with him. I finally had to say (as kindly as possible) that it shows that she is nervous when she holds him (although she is forever asking to hold him) and that makes me nervous and unable to be comfortable with her babysitting him. She agreed and said she probably shouldn't be babysitting children that young as she IS feeling uncomfortable. I have been feeling bad about needing to have that conversation and it has weighed on my heart for awhile now. So....while that is not a physical decluttering, it surely is a decluttering of the mind and has made it easier for me to say no. There is one other person who has asked to hold Jeremiah that we simply do not like, trust or want near our child. Having that in place is like having everything in my kitchen in place...it just feels GOOD.

Michelle...because I'm the Mommy and I said so!!! ;)
