* Plans *

I am the queen of clutter and organized disorder. I usually start with one project but I am easily distracted and end up doing something completely different. Well, actually that is generally my life – I don’t make plans (except Sunday morning) because life rarely goes according to plan. It drives my sister crazy. Generally I tell her “I will be there when you see me”. Someone said “If you want to make God laugh make a plan” He must spend lots of time laughing. LOL.

We are considering moving closer to the kids so I am trying to get rid of things and get the house ready to be appraised. At this point it would either take a fleet of semi trucks or a 21 day auction before we could move.

I am working on slowly cleaning out the clutter in my dining room. Well, actually there is no dining in that room. I am pretty sure the top of the table is oak, I base that on the fact that the chairs and base are oak. At this point the top has stacks of “stuff”.  I am working on putting things away where it belongs or getting rid of it. Sounds like an easy job, but it really isn’t.  I just seem to move my stacks around instead of actually dealing with them. When I was cleaning out a drawer I came across a bunch of cards that I have received over the years – what do you do with them? You don’t want to throw them away because the thought or the person means something to you.  Right now they all go into an antique chest that I have – basically just moved a pile of clutter to another place, but at least it is out of sight. LOL. Any suggestions gladly accepted.

On a rare occasion I may work for hours and unless you were watching me you wouldn’t have a clue that I did anything. My tip for today is do at least one project that your husband can see and he will think you do something besides sitting around eating bon bons and watching soap operas.

Need to get to work – I  have a large order I need to get out, of course she didn’t pick the patterns I have sitting on the shelf so I have to print them out. Which is a good thing because as the printer is doing it’s work I have a couple of minutes to declutter. A couple of minutes here and there start to add up and before you know it you can see some progress.
