    Today I've spent much of my morning decluttering and cleaning in my master bedroom and master bathroom. I get sidetracked so easily. It started when I went in there to make my bed simply so I could use it to fold laundry on. Now the master bedroom led to the master bathroom and the clothes still aren't done. LOL
