Well, I’m finally here again!!! Sorry for the lack of posts, Initech and my bakery have been sucking my free time up. Right now I’m watching the hockey game while blogging, and after I’m done I’m going to work out and watch the hockey game. I am a moving girl!!!
So this went down several weeks ago, but I wanted to let you know about my organizational party that went down. As you guys probably remember, I’m not the most organized person in the world. I promise, I try to be, but the ugly truth is that I’m simply never going to be. I’m always going to have weekends where I spend the entire day getting my life back in order. Sorry!!
That being said, I knew it needed to be done, and as much as I didn’t want to, I decided it was finally time. I got out the plastic storage bins, the garbage bags, the label maker, and the Pandora. I cranked up the jams, opened the windows for some fresh air (this was like spring cleaning in January) and went to town.
It was a lot of work. A. Lot. Of. Work. Why do I keep some of the stuff I keep? Receipts from 2 years ago?? Wind up toys from college Happy Meals? Clothes from high school??? Man, I may have some problems. But I spent a good part of my Saturday trying to fix that. Things were sorted, put away, trashed, donated, and generally organized. If I couldn’t find a reason to keep it, or a place for it to live, it went. If I hadn’t worn the outfit in over a year, it was gone. And if I knew I’d never pick it up again, it was out the door.
The results?? 3 trash bags in the dumpster, my entire back seat of my car full of Goodwill donations, and a closet I can actually see again! Hey, how bout that, I do have storage space in my bedroom!! I guess that’s what happens when you clean out the outfits you wore for college homecoming all those years ago.
I know it won’t last. I’ll find more stuff to bring home with me, and lose other things I already have, and in a few weeks I’ll have to do this all over again. But for not, my house is rocking!! It was so organized I threw a party at my place this past weekend, that’s how confident I was in my organizational prowess. Bring it!!!
So I’m back, and I’m rocking my.alphabet.year again. Next weekend will be a new adventure, and we’ll get going again as if we didn’t miss a beat. 🙂 I know life gets in the way sometime, but that’s not something I want to happen again.
For now, it’s back to working out and the Penguins game. Question for all of you out there, is pita and hummus considered a “well-balanced dinner”?? Because that was my dinner tonight. And it was delish. I’m not sure it’s a super nutritious meal, though. Hmmmm…maybe I’ll go eat a mango.
Until next weekend, have a fabulous week!!!!
