Well last weeks to-do list went to hell in a hand basket. We did get the blueberries and blackberries planted. I went on a canning frenzy, cleaned out the spare room…and it went down hill from there. I had the house pretty neat and clean. Windows washed, dusted, vacuumed blah blah blah. Now I can start all the corners and cabinets right?
I have a kitchen counter crammed full of canned/preserved food. I need to set up another shelf in the basement to store them but, I need to get all the laundry done to clean out the laundry room…..to put the shelves up. Otherwise its just more to clean around. Now that the majority of the towels are clean…They don’t all fit in the linen closet….(no I’m not giving them away, I just replaced a bunch of them) So, I started to clean out the linen closet, 20+ yrs of sheets and mattress pads. I have piles of twin, (6 twin beds at one time and 2 sets per bed)….full, queen & KING? (We NEVER have had a King size bed here… where the heck did they come from?) All still useable…now in stacks in the bathroom floor..I need to check with Erika & see if she want any for the kids beds and free cycle the rest. Well maybe keep a few as paint drop cloths….but where will I put them…..
Little bird had a tantrum and threw bird seed ALL OVER again in the family room..
A big bird cage that needs cleaning
More things needing to be canned and no space to do it with all the full jars in the way. But all the canning pots & tools are still out..beans & tomato’s need picked
I have 3 orders I need to finish & about a dozen diaper to make for a friend
An article to write by months end,
My bedroom looks like a BOMB went off in it & the mini blinds broke…I bought a new set to hang…wrong size so they need to go back
I have seen 4 different mice in the kitchen…set 8 mouse traps in 10 feet space….they ate the peanut butter! Did not spring the trap!
My nephews finished basement & storage area was flooded with 30 inches of water, so I have a few large bins of baby cloths we are washing trying to salvage. They are sorted by size on the kitchen table…not at all complaining…very happy to help but..
And Buddy the muddy swamp thing just came in covered in mud….
I just dropped a container of cocoa on the floor
I’d go back to bed but its covered with clean clothes to put away
It’s like a vicious circle, I need to do this job to do that, but that has to have …and on and on.
To top it off I still feel like some one has just sucked all the life & energy from my body. I’m tired of being tired.
So, do you really want to hear what I think about organizing? I had a clean & neat house!
I think I’m going to sit down & have a bagel & fresh cup of coffee with this Pity Party & then getting back to work
PLEASE tell me it’s not just me!
OK maybe it is……
