Well, I'm trying. My best is usually an organized mess, my worst is chaos! I am not an organized person. I tell friends I am simply the world's worst blind person b/c nothing is organized! My shoes are always in a jumble at the bottom of my closet or beside my chest of drawers. My underwear is all willy-nilly in a drawer. Worn clothes are on top of clean clothes.... I'm a mess! But, my friend who I also hired to clean my house on a regular basis insisted that I get organized. My husband said that my messes were to him like and he proceeded to turn the music up to full blare is to me! So, I'm doing it. We bought closet organizers and they have rods and shelves. Over the past few weeks we have gotten together and got rid of loads of clothes and organized what was left in the 2 closets. Today we did my main closet and organized my sock, undderwear and bra drawers. I started organizing my jewelry into a nicely divided jewelry armoir. I still have a long way to go, but it's getting there! But, I feel very uncomfortable. I can't explain it, but being able to get into my closet and actually look for items b/c they are not all scrunched up together makes me feel nervous and unsettled instead of good. Having my dresser top cleared of jewelry and socks makes me feel unsettled. It makes no sense, but I'm not liking it. My husband thinks my feelings of discomfort are rather funny. I actually feel a little depressed. I'm in no way proud of my clutter or my mess, but I've been this way most of my life. So all this organized change is making me nervous. But, I love my husband and don't want him to feel uncomfortable in his own home either and being organized will make life easier for me once I get used to it too! So, I'm getting organized. So far so good. I have to weed out my shoes and a bunch of clothing that has piled up on the spare bed. I need to get all the clothes put away so I can start on remodeling the house altogether! It will all be good! I just have to get "there"!

I finally figured out why I am so "full-figured"!
As I was conditioning my hair in the shower this morning, I took time to read my shampoo bottle.
I am in shock! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my entire body says "for extra volume and body"! Seriously, why have I not noticed this before?
Tomorrow I am going to start using "Dawn" dish soap! It says right on the bottle, "dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove".
It pays to read the warning labels my friends!
I do use extra volume and body building shampoo and conditioner! I received this little joke from my aunt and had to share it with my Spark friends! Hope it made you smile as it did me!

Well, no plans to go to Disney World that's for sure! What I did was dragHusband and Jack on a 3 mile walk today! We walked on that lovely trail near our home again and this time no mean dogs and no problems! We walked to the 1.5 mile marker and back. It is just a beautiful day here in the mid to upper 70s with sunshine and a nice breeze! Parts of the trail are shaded, so we had a nice walk thru sun and shade to keep us cool. It took 85 minutes to do the 3 miles, but it was nice and looks like I burned close to 300 calories. It is a great day, but then every day is a great day!
I'm so happy that my pain is at a very low minimum today and that we are going to have dinner with our neighbors this evening. How blessed am I to have good neighbors and such a fantastic husband? So, I have an eye socket in my tummy! Who else can say that?!! Life is good!
Need to shower.... Got to pull the packing out.... Yuck and ouch! But.... It is all good!

Well, in investigating the gaping hole where Cysta Ryan used to reside I found that it is very much like an empty eye socket! It is about the size of an adult eye socket and about as deep. It is like an empty eye socket staring out into space.
The good news is that once I got past the removal of the packing, the cleaning with a QTip and peroxide, the first shower and the repacking the pain isn't too bad. I only hurt when I move a certain way. Much, much less pain than when Cysta was still around!
So, I was wondering if I could maybe purchase a glass eye from a Pawn shop or a fake eye from a Halloween store to insert instead of the packing? Maybe a real pretty marble in some of my fave colors that I could switch out to match my belly dancing outfits? Maybe a nice big fake gemstone? LOL!
This thing is deeper and bigger than I thought, so I am aprehensive about the healing process. But, I will deal.
Right now my biggest complaint is that I am HOT! It got up to 83 degrees today and is still in the upper 70s! We got a new heating and air system this winter and the stupid thermostat controls are on a touch screen! Touch screen technology might be nice for those who can see, but not for the very hot and irritated blind!**Sigh** Husband just called and is on his way homhome, so that is good. Maybe I can cool off! At least the sun is setting....

OK, forgive all my typos b/c my hands are very shakey. The Lydacaine (sp?) they used to numb me for surgery made me terribly jumpy and shakey and once it wore off my nerves took over and I can't seem to stop the shaking right now!
Yes, I'm home from surgery. It was all able to be done in the MD's office, It wasn't anything fun or exotic or even alien in me, but a blocked oil gland that caused a horrible hard build up of oil which then became infected. The doctor took out a hard glump of built up oil that was the size of a nickle (per hubby). I asked if this should've been taken care of years ago and the doc said probably. He said that he couldn't say without knowing what it looked like at the time, but that I should've pursued having it checked b/c a blocked oil gland will eventually become infected. Oh those docs who said it was nothing! Now I have a gaping hole in my tummy and it has to heal from the inside out so it is packed! I have to remove the packing before each shower and then pack it again.... I really, really don't want to deal with that! It sounds so painful to me!
Cysta Ryan was evicted and sent packing! She/it is gone, gone, gone! Now I have this gaping hole left in her wake! It is sore, but not horrible. I hope it stays this way. Well, you know, not a gaping hole, but just sore and not horrible!
I wish this jittery, jumpy feeling would go away tho! I feel like a hooker in church, a long tailed cat in a room full of rockers, a bean from below the border with a restless worm in it.... It is getting just a little freaky! If it doesn't wear off soon I'm going to call the doctor and see what may be going on.... I think it is just that I was so nervous and so tense at the beginning and then the meds made my heart race and my body couldn't sort the feelings out and is trying to reach homeostasis again!
I'm having a lovely fat filled Reuben sandwich today in honor of St. Patrick's Day! I'll eat a nice big salad too, but wanted some corned beef.
May your kilt be hsort enough for a jig, but long enough to cover your lucky charms!
