Wish me luck, I'm cleaning out the kids bedroom today!

Found four library books that belong to the school. Good thing the kids head back tomorrow so they can be handed in. I'm not paying the fines!

We also found a medical alert bracelet that went missing one year ago
Three notes from the school regarding homework
One school agenda. The last entry was dated October 29th!

Stay tuned...

It has been a very busy day - and very, VERY productive. (Massive thanks to all the number callers - I can safely say this is the most fun I've ever had while also doing all the little tasks I tend to put off!)

For anyone interested, here's the complete list of what got done (and what didn't!)
Long List is LongCollapse )

Time for that glass of wine (well, baileys, in my case!) someone suggested!

Post-Christmas Declutter [Dec. 29th, 2010|05:46 pm]

I received the sad news of my Step-Grandmother's death yesterday morning, and I don't know exactly why but I have been full of energy, and have been decluttering. I suppose it's a distraction. I read somewhere once that you shouldn't declutter when you are emotional, so I have just been decluttering non-emotional stuff, kitchen cupboards, the airing cupboard, toiletries. I have also been putting lots of small things where they belong. It is amazing the difference this makes. It leaves questions unanswered, such as why do I have 4 opened jars of honey in the cupboard?

I have decided that my theme word, what I am working towards in 2011 will be consistency. Which includes staying on top of my clutter all the time not just in fits and bursts. Wish me luck I think I will need it :)

Well, it's a start [Aug. 8th, 2010|10:17 am]

I am working on a major rearrange and purge in advance of my new bed that is coming on Wednesday (I think I confused the sales guy, who said "we can have it there as soon as Saturday!" and I said "No. No-no. No! Next week is better. How about Wednesday?" Hah.). Along with other stuff I've probably forgotten, I:

--Gave an old flat-screen monitor to a friend who needed one
--Gave a fancy wine-stopper that I'd bought to give as a gift (but never gave, obviously) to a friend (who will give it to his uncle, who makes wine)
--Sold a duplicate copy of an expensive (and large) reference book to the student of a friend (which will be shipped out as soon as I get the address)
--Threw out a bunch of junk, some of which I'm not entirely comfortable sending to landfills but at this point I just need it gone

How are you doing?
