I don't mind at all.. We can do this, Loki! :D

For months my inner brat has directed my life. This has to stop! When I woke up this morning, I decided to practice self-discipline. I jumped out of bed, without even thinking about hitting the snooze button. To my greatest surprise; I started the morning decluttering for 10 minutes. I found stuff to take to the recycling center, and some items could be tossed in my garbage can. I consider this a successful morning. :lol:

Friday
- Pull weeds for 10 mins
- Tidy/declutter for 10 mins
