A Little Overboard, Don't You Think???

I quickly snapped this picture on my way home from school the other day.....sorry for the poor quality, but I have been wanting to post a picture of this house for some time.
This isn't even ALL of the blowups that are on this lawn!!

This is for is even more crowded for Christmas, if you can imagine!!! LOL
There is always so much on the lawn that it is just too much to take in...and each time I pass it, I just think that someone either has money to burn or way, way, way too much time on their hands........or this is the result of a bet gone wrong!!! LOL

But the more that I look at it, the more that I see that I think alot of us do this with our lives.....we clutter it with so much "stuff" that it is hard to really see the "heart" of who we are. Plus we have so much clutter around us of all we have to do, want to do, demand to do, feel pressured to do.....that we just look unapproachable. Check out the house above, I am not sure how the heck you would even get to the front door without a map!!

So I am working to take this life lesson to heart. I am "decluttering" some things in my life that I have been hanging on to, but they are things that aren't serving me well. Are there some things that you need to let go of????

Hugs to you all...

I Am Here.......

I love, love, love Fall!!! I am so happy to have cooler weather.....if the rain would just let up that would be great!!! With so much rain, I know I saw an ark being built and animals beginning to pair up....geeesh!!! LOL

School is back in session....and is much tougher this go around. Math has never been my "thing" and I have a college math course, plus anatomy/physiology and intro to massage. Please understand that I have trouble remembering my own telephone number right now, so adding these body parts, systems and such to memorize, well, I am a little over my head. But I am hanging in there. Plus trying to balance homework, getting items done for a craft show, and just keeping up with home stuff is making me a bit nuts. I do know it will be is just a struggle to work some sort of system out to make things easier.

I do know that with starting my massage classes I am very aware of wanting to "practice what I preach"....and that so much of what I am learning is linked to good health. I have battled with trying to find a better way of eating that is actually doable for me...and for my life. And frankly it has been hard. I did pick up a magazine that I liked this week called "Clean Eating" advocates some of the things Jen has been preaching to me for some time about eating 5-6 smaller meals. I just always had trouble trying to figure out how the heck I was going to find the time to plan those ahead for when I am away from home....but I am going to give it a shot and see how it goes.

Hope you all are doing something fun this Fall to share the season with your family. Walks, pumpkin farms, hayrides, and makes for wonderful memories.

Have a wonderful week!!!
