I have dusted backs of chairs, corners behind drapes, windowsills, and I'm packing up all the I Need To Do's and Good Intentions.
I have piles all over that are intended for friends (clothes that my kids have outgrown, shoes I made a friend's daughter, cd's to return), clothes to donate, returns for Lowe's, Wal-Mart, Target, Academy Sports, Hobby Lobby (and yes, I'm so serious-I have piles of returns!). They take up space in my house, and they mentally haunt me. So, today, I made a list as I loaded each thing in my van, they aren't coming back in my house. I've also accumulated some extra furniture since I got a couple new things, so I'm getting those moved to new homes too!
Feels fresh and clean, like when you walk into your house and there are lines (the good vacuumy kind) in the carpet, and you can smell Clean (not stinky Pine-Sol, but clean laundry!). I've got much more to do, but piles just rob my joy, and I don't need the stuff. I even have two new decorating things, but I've let them sit for so long, I don't know if the store will take them back anymore. I just want to give them to the store to resell at this point! They're just taking up space here. : P
Ok, so no help on Twitter? Maybe that's why I haven't been on it before! : ) I'll keep trudging along..but Misty! How did you post your blog? Really! That's something. : )
Ok, I'll leave you with my latest. Mary Claire requested a unicorn. She wanted purple and pink (ack! I know, she's 9). (and I didn't have lavendar embroidery thread to match a pale fabric, and dark purple seemed really harsh, and then I had to do something that either matched the hot pink or totally was opposite...it was hard, Really. I couldn't monogram her name in hot pink or white because of the stripes, so..) I decided to make it a little preppy unicorn. Haha-hope she likes it! (Guess I can always make another?) It's lime on a hot pink towel (she did pick the towel) : )
|I will not be making another. It took three hours. The fluffy white hair is mostly to blame.|
