Ok, so I don't have the KonMarie book (I'm like 41 at the library on the old list), but I read what I could online and just dove in. I cleaned my underwear drawer and then neatly folded my underwear. Most of my underwear does NOT bring me joy. Pretty little underwear packets should be, well, pretty. So, pitched most of it and will go underwear shopping soon. Forget size. Comfort and looks...................
Another 5-6 lb and more of my clothing will fit. Thank goodness.
On the sleep, I'm trying. When DH is here, it's not good (he snores all night and we don't have a spare room). Now that he's gone, I feel like I'm trying desperately to catch up, but I have kid duty on both ends, so it's not as long as I'd like. Tonight, though, I'm going to bed early, and letting the boys know they are on the honor system to get to bed.
When DH is here, I do. When's he's not, I check to make sure they put their phones down, talk to them, etc. They are night creatures, so it's usually the best time to talk to them (though I am a morning person).
Luckily I could get pretty decent conversations during all the chauffeuring that I was doing. When they were very young we started a rule where they had to be in their rooms and I needed to be able to pretend they were asleep, 7 when we first started and 9 by the Time they were in high school. They did have cell phones but not smartphones so we didn't restrict their use except as a consequence if needed but no computers or tv in their rooms so it was easier. But there is no way that I could stay up as late as them, and I am a night owl.

Guys - I need some ideas. The boys want snacks they can pull out of the fridge and eat (they don't mind microwaving). I do burritos a lot - good source of protein - but they are getting bored of those. I'm not really a big fan of chips/crackers/cookies, etc.. I'm not even looking for primal/paleo. Just something that's not totally crap. Other ideas?
