The other day, I found myself in our storage room, digging through bins and boxes. I was in the mood to get rid of stuff, in my on-going effort to create more breathing space down there (I admit – it’s an obsession). Although I was tempted to go through the kids’ boxes, I knew better than to do it without them. I had to take a hard look at my own stuff. Take baby steps:

Newsprint we can do next week, but for right now I wanted/needed a manicure by a professional. As I told you in the first “Get Yo’ Nails Did”, it’s important to include real manicures in your nail routine if you’re not comfortable cutting your cuticles and getting into the real work at home.
