Ok, I know, homeschool parents don’t exactly get time off for sick days, but I’m trying my best!  I have taken up an almost permanent position in the recliner with my laptop.  I have my pillows, blankets, pets and assorted cold remedies surrounding me. What’s a girl to do when she’s afraid to sleep and [...]

I have this habit of working on ‘hidden’ clutter before tackling the more obvious clutter ( like the kids’ toys littering the living room and the pockets of disarray scattered around our home).
