Packing and throwing

These days I spent most of my times with the kids. Jan is revising for her exam which starting middle next week. Both of us are recovering from our sickness.  We also experiencing bad weather lately; look like the monsoon season is getting nearer.

I did a bit of packing this week. Getting started was hard as we do have a lot of stuff. However I am trying to be rational here. Not going to get carry away with sentimental stuff. I done with a box of books, another with clutter of small stuff and reusables.  And I also managed to sort out and pack the kids, outgrown clothings in a suitcase. Thinking of giving away to their cousins when back to Kuching.

I also threw many stuff too especially the kids' toys. Most were spoiled, torn or unfunctional. So now their toy basket is not so full anymore and I do not need to worry about Jamie picking on bits and putting into his mouth. And how glad I am that I did some spring cleaning and packing. Jamie just have 2 wandering hands and you just got to keep everything away from him!

Talking about Jamie, he is getting active and naughtier. He is sure handful. More demanding than his older siblings. And now he is the one messing around the house. I have to clean up after him. 

It is not easy to keep the house clean and tidy. One minute I may have a mess-free corner but the next minute I turn away, it will be nothing but kids' stuff.  But I always tell myself, keep it real. Life with 3 kids is never mess-free. But at least I try right?
