Here it is Thursday and my vacation is about over, it is back to work on Monday. I had a busy week, a lot of projects around the house got done. Since my sister moved in things have just been put here or there until it got to the point where I couldn't find anything! I may not be the world's neatest person but I can only take clutter for so long and then it drives me crazy. I made a start on it 2 weeks ago by organizing my garage. I put a floor down in the loft of the garage to use for storage of all the outdoor decorations. That is all done and decorations are all up in the loft. This weekend I went out and organized the work bench in the garage and I can now find all my tools. So my two car garage now holds two cars again!
My sister left for Las Vegas on Monday (helping her old company) and I continued to work on my remaining projects. I finished the picture wall in the living room for my mom. Last night I changed out some pictures and added a pop of color into it. Mom really likes it.
My little computer room is also a guest room. It is big enough for a twin bed and my computer desk. Well it got to be the catch all room and was very messy. All the extra pictures that we had I put up on the walls in there. I also put up two shelves to display my Boyd's Bears on. Everything that didn't belong is now gone and someone can actually lay down on the bed now. Right now my dog Mocha is on the bed snoozing while I type.
Today I did my last project for my vacation, I organized the closet (pantry) in the kitchen. I got an over the door shoe organizer to put all the boxes of wax paper, aluminum foil, ziploc bags, etc in. That freed up tons of room. Hung the frying pans on one section of wall and got rid of everything that we didn't use. Now have room in there and can actually see what is in there.
Tomorrow I think I will curl up with a book. I really haven't done much reading while I've been off. Tomorrow afternoon mom and I are going to my church for a baked chicken pot pie dinner that my committee is doing. All in all I had a productive week and I feel good about what I accomplished.
