wondering if I should attend a family reunion

about a year ago me and my sister had a falling out and she hasn't spoken to me since. My other sister phoned me about the reunion and said, "I want to warn you that (angry sister) is going to be there"

    Are there other family members you want to see? If so, please don't let your sister stop you from doing so. If she doesn't want to see you, let it be her choice whether she attends or not.

    Unless you plan on being locked in a closet or tied up in a burlap sack with just this sister, why lose out on an opportunity to enjoy a pleasure in life.
Nobody else has the right to ruin your day,,only you.. Go get lots of family hugs an d kisses, take pictures, and make memories.. You never know who you will never see again...

    If using a timer works for you, I say keep on doing it! I use the timer method myself sometimes, and if I am really into my work, I'll keep right on going.

trying to be a past clutterer

Saturday, July 19, 2014

slowly, I'm getting my routines in place

what comes I think for many organized home people doesn't happen to me

and when it does, it's a great ah-ha moment

I always remember to feed the cats, both morning and evening

today, an ah-ha moment when I realized that as they eat their morning meal, I can pick up any other of their dishes in the area and wash any dishes in the sink

and as a bonus, I can make several swipes with the broom and pick up and dispose of floor debris

and, new to me, not embarrassed to talk about it..yeah for me

    I need to get organized too; it's something I struggle to stay on top of every day.
