Lately I have been feeling like the walls are closing in on me. Every time I go to get in a closet or drawer to look for something, I have to sift through "stuff" I either haven't used in who knows how long, stuff I have forgotten about, or stuff I don't have a clue why I have. So enough was enough! Phase one was the living room, top to bottom, and the entry closet. (It had turned into extra storage for the shoes that didnt fit in my closet. Thankfully my sister is having a garage sale soon so many of them will find a new closet. Phase 2, laundry room and pantry. Pantry had become a place for boxes for items (mostly irons) that I kept just in case they went bad before the warranty was up. All went to the burn pile! And whatta ya know, I actually have room for food in there now!! Phase 3 didn't go exactly as planned as I am over it for the day. I have a 12 yr old whirlpool tub that I have to literally disassemble to get it REALLY clean, even with my weekly scubs. I have done the manufacturer suggested way of running dishwasher crystals through the jet cycle but it never cleans it as well as when I totally take it apart. Every month when I disassemble it I cuss myself for buying that tub!!!! I reckon when I'm old and gray DH will find me in it trying to clean it! I had planned on cleaning my closet and donating my "yeah right your gonna get back in that size", and the "what the heck was I thinking when I bought this?" to my sisters garage sale but I ran out of steam. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. I'm ready to start being creative instead of crazy about cleaning! What the heck is wrong with me?!?!?!...I used to be able to strategically place items in a closet and hurry and shut the door before it all came crashing down and not care about it. Ut oh, am I finally growing up????
I hope this finds you all being creative and doing something you love! Have a great week!
