Here in the U.S., the holidays officially start in one week with Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving often means you get together with family.

Clean With Me

I’ve really enjoyed Dana’s recent episodes. I mention her on my show sometimes. Check mine out once you’re caught up on a Slob Comes Clean. My show is called “Clean With Me.”

Here's another idea about what to do about the painting. Cut out the faces of your husband and his sister in a size that is easily frameable. Those two pieces will probably be a lot smaller and you can find a place in your house to display them. then throw the rest of the painting away! or take a high-quality photograph of each face in the painting, frame those and throw the painting away.

Why aren't your husband and kids helping you clean these huge messes? Are you the only one making the mess?

This episode is truly meaningful. Full of philosophies that I could apply surprisingly even on my career path apart from being organized. Being organized is extremely hard for me and I'm surprised why not more people talk about it or even nerd out with lets say with the thibgs that they buy to be file things, to be more organized, declutter, and cleaning. I used to be (all the time) the girl who wants to dig out that one rock at the very back of my shelf, but it's remarkable what the podcaster went through while she was going through the archaelogical dig. Thank you so much! And volunteering with your kids on archaelogical digs is one of the most exciting things a mom could do!

I loved this podcast up until this episode. Please educate yourself on the ongoing apartheid, ethnic cleansing, and occupation of Palestinians. I will no longer be listening to this podcast.
