Here are things I have to let go:
-Getting my thank you notes out.
-Updating my blog so it looks like I do indeed have six children instead of just five.
-Taking super cute pics of Janey in all those cute baby poses like the professionals do. (Abbey tells me I am going to regret this.) I don't want to wake her when she is sleeping and I don't want to upset her when she is happy and awake. And besides I just want to be her mom, not her photographer.
Right now, we are down to the bare essentials. A shower for me in the morning, keeping up with the laundry and having food bought and prepared are the bare essentials. The second tier is a clean and clutter free house because that is so important (whether I like it or not) to my mental health. Everything else-I have to let it go and either really let it go for good, or know that I might get to it one day.
