Spring is ONLY 38 days away and if it appears that I am in hurry to see Spring…. I AM! ¬†ūüėÄ ¬†

However, in my neck of the woods, winter will probably linger. ¬†It “snowed” yesterday and the sun’s out today, but 1 to 22 inches of snow is in the forecast for the rest of the week. ¬†It is always during this time of the year that I recall the ¬†final preparations for my wedding day. ¬†My wedding anniversary is March 10, and the Thursday before, almost thirty years ago… It SNOWED, no REALLY, snowed! ¬†But by my wedding day, the snow was practically all gone and the sun was shining. ¬†GO FIGURE!! ¬†

Winter gives the earth a deep cleansing and kills the germs in the air… BUT Spring is a season of rebirth, rejuvenation, resurrection and regrowth. ¬†March 20th will be here before we know, so why not start preparing for our period of renewal and Order right now.

Now I wouldn’t suggest that you do this…

But I would suggest that we map out a “Spring’s Comin” plan. ¬†We have 38 days and counting to get ready.

  • Days 1 thru 15 Assess your space and determine three (3) major areas that require spring cleaning first and allot ample time to complete. ¬†Assign small tasks to complete over time. ¬†Write down the plan and post it. ¬†Technically, we will have 3 months to get it done. ¬†(yes, I understand that we still have lives, that why I suggested only 3… :-D)
  • Days 16 thru 30Find two (2) small areas that need to be organized (yes, there is a difference between clean & organize…). ¬†Then let the sort & purge process begin.
  • Days 31 thru 38 Get the family to participate. ¬†Review the plan with them and get their support & buy-in (even under duress :-D)…. and absolutely, have a BIG party when it’s done. ¬†Have fun with it!
