This article about managing emails made me want to declutter my inbox again. The Curse of the Email
Flylady has you do a 27 Fling Boogie – ditching 27 items throughout the house to help with decluttering. Great idea but it just seems too big and I never get there unless I’m having a major purge and I’m likely to throw way more than 27. But for a weekly habit – I like this idea of 7 things. Ditch 7 things in one zone. Now I should be able to work with that!
While I’m thinking Flylady – I’m reminded of the 11 Commandments of Flylady. My habits in many of these areas are a little loose at the moment – time to fine tune and get things running a little smoother!

I’m still putting together my thoughts for our Easter studies this year. I want to find something that is meaningful to our hearts – and taking into consideration the different ages in our family, something that holds to some traditions that the older ones enjoyed so that Daniel doesn’t miss out on these memory making times, and something that cements the meaning of the Cross and Resurrection as Daniel’s and Nomi’s faith grows. This is series of devotions by Noel Piper is high on my list of choices.
Here’s another list of Easter activities that will fit with Daniel’s needs. I’m also considering this unit from Homeschool Share on the Three Trees (though I may do this as table time with Daniel in the week after Easter)

Facebook makes us Miserable…. I can’t say that I was aware that I was miserable after being on facebook, but after reading this article I ‘watched’ myself a little more carefully and yes, there are seeds of discontent there. You could say it was a self-fulfilling prophecy after reading this… but I don’t think so. I’m going to watch how much I dwell in facebook – and watch my heart afterwards.
