Almost a year ago, we moved and amazing I really hadn’t tackled some of my piles in certain storage areas.
I’m one to always have a pile somewhere and then perhaps, another one… ie..research ideas, children’s keepsakes (one day I will get around to putting them into their scrapbook). When I start something, I usually start something else, before putting it away, it’s not that it doesn’t get completed, I’m just a jack of all trades, master of none. So, today, I tackled piles, and ended up with 3 more pairs of holey jeans to eventually cut out towards a jean quilt.
I have this calendar on my dresser, and I only flip it when my dresser is perfectly spotlessly clean. It’s still not quite there (as I have a few important documents hanging out on top of it) . Well, I know the calendar fell behind my dresser, and was placed on top again, I hadn’t flipped the date. Today it was reading July 12…really?…I don’t think I actually believe that it has been over 6 months, has it!! Thank goodness this flipping calendar has no year on it!! That could be very scary!
Today I tackled the storage room. My 6ft racks from craft shows were amongst my piles, with other papers spewling onto the floor…it amazes me how I find letters that were written 13 years ago, on the floor…must of fell out of journals. It’s getting there, and now I actually have moved my extended work table into the storage room, so my main den space, should remain unclutter, and it sure beats having to always sit infront of the furnace cold air intake…Brrrr!
My children are anxiously wanting to earn some spending money for a family trip, and after my discussion, of how I’m not going to remind them to do any extra chores, but I don’t want hear of any complaining when they claim they didn’t earn any money, but were too lazy instead. Well, something clicked with them tonight, and the two oldest ones, worked their tail off…even to the point, where my kitchen stove is more spotless, and they waited up past their bedtime to empty the dishwasher. It’s music, to my ears to hear them say, “no one better mess this up tomorrow! It sure beats hiring a housekeeper, and I sure hope they will be a great support to their future wives. I can’t wait for tomorrow!
