Can you believe that November is almost over???
Tomorrow is a new month and a fresh start.

I December I usually make more of a mess than I do with any cleaning and clearing.

I have been cleaning out my house, drawer-by-drawer. It feels so good to get rid of the unused and junky things I don't need!

Swamped by work and must-do errands yesterday, as well as committed to my ST session with my trainer, so I did little cleaning other than some mail triage, recycling collection, and tidying up the kitchen. Looking forward to time this weekend to do a bit more.

What a good idea to go thru old emails. I have a file of emails titled DAD, where I stored all the emails about his condition for a few years. He died in 2010. Maybe it is time to get rid of that file?

It has been a lazy day for me today.
I went to my exercise class this AM and felt totally out of shape..... groan.....
Then went to Prayers & Squares and turned in 3 quilt tops I finished, did a little bit
of shopping at Wal-Mart and then I've been sitting in front of the computer way too much today.
I have a stack of papers and old coupons on my kitchen counter and I was going to
purge that off today.......
Oh well, the day isn't over. :LOL
Now I 'm off to a walk with my Tues/Thurs. night walking group.

I NEED TO GET MY EATING UNDER CONTROL...................... Yikes !!!!

I have been out of touch but back in touch today!!!
What I am happy to report is that I finally hung my kids art pictures and our family room and hall way look like an Art Gallery. I cleaned up our laundry room. Also organized up the bottom part of my desk that had so much left over junk and electronic wires. Working on completing other projects!!! Will report those in December!!! Happy Tuesday!!!

I Pledge to forgive myself for the past & keep going no matter how many times I fall. I have the strength and self discipline. I will give my challenges to the Lord. I WILL HAVE A FRESH START EVERY DAY!!

Wow, Knuckles, it's hard to let go of electrons some times. I, too, have way too many e-mails that I just don't want to let go of.

Taking a sick day today to deal with sinus issues (draining and headache) and with the lack of sleep those two produced. No real cleaning goals today, though I have cleaned up 5 cat barf spots (wonder what's wrong with him?), cleaned the filters on the air purifiers, and started a load of towels washing.

emoticon Way to go turning the "closet" back into a room LITTLEDAISY! emoticon

Off to touch up the bedroom & bath that I 'd thoroughly cleaned a week or so ago
before I get back to the kitchen food cabinets/pantry.
DH has third shift this week so after 10pm I'll be up washing floors - kitchen, bath, backhall - so they can be dry and back to normal by the time he gets home.
That should be the final step of my "sandblasting" of the kitchen
so I can finally get back to making progress on my regular project/decluttering list.

I, too, really made progress de-cluttering in the past few weeks! Cleaned out several kitchen cabinets and took stuff to Goodwill! Biggest job was re-claiming a spare bedroom that had been used as a junk room for about 12 years! Took a dozen garbage bags to Goodwill from that room alone!! Found clothes that I hadn't worn in over 15 years! I am also amazed at what just 15 minutes a day can do to organize my home!

One day at a time!

Keep on, keeping on!

I ordered some flat pack storage boxes on line. They are here and one set are larger than I had thought thy would be. The sizes were in centimetres I must not have converted to inches very well, but I m sure I can use them. Monday s planned to sort my overflowing boxes and get the new ones in use! Quite exciting!

Before Holiday, I was decluttering living/familyroom
between mending sessions. The goals are (1) to reclaim a major room and (2) to get everything cleared out of the mending pile.
Making good headway but wasn't done when I got hijacked by Thanksgiving prep etal.

Currently
"Sandblasting" my kitchen post-holiday
(we did all the cooking for dozens for thanksgiving except for the cooking of the turkey and veggies here....the rest and the meal were served elsewhere thank goodness. DH loves doing major cooking effort for the hoidays and does his part but OMG, the kitchen turns into a disaster zone)

I had done reorg (and rough inventory) of all food cabinets/pantry
- except for cabinet with the oils/vinegars/condiments and the spices - in the summer.
During breaks from the sandblasting, I'm straightening up what had been done; then, after the floor gets cleaned, I'll be finishing that final cabinet and the spices.

I think that will finish the kitchen
so it will be back to continuing the pre-holiday projects to-do list
** need to find shirts to put together some winter outfits (and get the last of the summer shirts packed away)
** get the piles of things to be donated delivered so no longer here
** go back to living/familyroom reclamation project

with breaks to prep for December to New Years events of course.

swiped down all of my son's medical equipment, the cords, etc. sorted through, counted and organized all his medical supplies and really cleaned around his bed area. Also we moved furniture and really vacuumed the carpet to get rid of dog hair. cleaned out my closet and threw away a couple of old dog beds (that were stinking)

oh and almost forget. cleaned out old purse, transferred everything to new purse and sorted through wallet.

Gee we are almost to the end of November and when I look back on the month - I have really made some progress in my home organization. I still have a lot to do - but I've purged a lot of "stuff" out of my house and it feels good.

I now need to think about some measurable goals for December.

Thank you from me too for the team goodie, it reminded me to drop in on the team today. My organising skills are mainly pre Christmas activities now, I made a start on writing greeting cards, it soon showed me I need to organise my address lists , I ave about 3 . Including one of my mothers I kept because there is one address in it I still use for a Christmas card! So now I am gradually working through my lists and books to obtain ONE useful list for future use, thus us where my I pad is proving its worth. My new list is going on there .slowly!
Have a good weekend team Ree

Travelbug, hope you got medical attention for that finger!

Yesterday, I didn't get through much on my Pick 3...just didn't get into it. Today, so far I have collected and bagged the recycling, collected the trash, started a load of towels, planned tomorrow's meal, and prepared the grocery list for all the things we still need. Off to brave the grocery store.

I was holding metal flashlite and cut my hand, also may have broken or badly sprained
finger, I can bend it and make a fist - but have big cut on the tip,,,,,hard to type LOL

My knees are also stiff - Hope I fell better soon...

Tree trimmer finally showed up today and the large tree in my front yard is now really trimmed and laced. It looks great.
The whole yard looks so much neater.
I even re-arranged the plants on my porch. WAHOO!!!

Yesterday, I got through my puny Pick 3 list at the office, for the most part. At home, I waded through some more catalogs (since I can't bear to part with them until I've looked at them) and stacked recycling.

Knuckles, emoticon sorry to hear about your beloved dog. I know how hard it is to let furbabies go.

As for last night's dinner, note to self: If you want something more than canned soup and a salad, plan the meal yourself.

well everything for the charity pick up today is out on the driveway. Silly me didn't think things through this morning and put it all on the driveway behind my son's accessible van. and of course he has a doctors appointment this afternoon so I will need to drive the van. Hopefully they will come pick up the stuff before 2pm when we need to left.

I had to laugh at my other son though, because he ended up bringing several of the items back into the house as he was helping me move the stuff out

Today I have a load of books to take to the used paperback book store for credit.
Then I'm going to lunch with friends (my friend's daughter is visiting for the holiday...
and she has lost 60# on gluten free eating.)
I'm so anxious to visit with them.

Hope everyone has a good day and you are making progress towards prep for Thursday.

Knuckles - sorry to hear about you dog. They are such a part of our families.....
Today I did the house/garage purge like I said I would.
I filled 8 - 10 boxes of stuff and took it to the Goodwill drop.
Feels so good to have that stuff out of my house/garage.

I got a little carried away and accidentally donated my inflatable exercise ball!!!
I thought I had 2 - but realized that I had gotten rid of the first one a few years ago.
Oh well, if I decide I need one - I can always get another.

I also mowed the lawns front and back, watered everything and the trash and
recycle bins are out at the curb for pick-up tomorrow.
WAHOO!!!!!

got nothing much done over the weekend. It was an emotional weekend ending with the decision to put our 13 year old golden retrieve to sleep late yesterday afternoon. Today I hope to do some picking up and cleaning, getting all of her supplies together to donate.

charity coming tomorrow morning to pick up bunch of donation and I will have my garage back

I got up early and went to my yoga class - only to be reminded with a sign on the door that the Senior Center is closed all this week for painting etc.
DUH!!!!
Guess I was on auto-pilot.....

So I'm home and in the mood to do some purging and cleaning.
When it warms up a bit - I'll mow the lawns.

Thanks, Travelbug!

Today is my long day with yoga right after work, so I'll do some office decluttering. At least I turned meal planning over to DH for tonight. Usually I have the meal all planned out, even if he prepares if. Just one less thing to worry about.

Back from vacay and plunging into the real world again. With two weeks' worth of laundry accumulated, I'm glad I started yesterday. Finishing the laundry today, paying bills, and doing some decluttering. Other than that, I didn't over-schedule the day for once. DH and I will go walkies soon, and we have a wine tasting event later today.

On a related note, a recent blog by Brooklyn_Born described me to a tee: I'm a "yo-yo cleaner," one who lets things go until required to do crisis cleaning before guests arrive.

Weeks ago I ordered some beautiful glass-fronted bookshelves for my office and my spare bedroom. They are arriving the day after Thanksgiving. I am rearranging things to make room for them and picking out my best books to go in them.

I was ready and roaring to go Monday and Tuesday, churning out loads of clean laundry but by Wednesday I was pooped. All this was in preparation for my mom coming to visit and now she will be here tomorrow and as usual my dh and I will be performing a mad dash day of cleaning everything we can get our hands on before she arrives. At least I have my ds2's bday gifts purchased (his big day is tomorrow) and all I have to do is bag those up and tonight I'll make his cupcakes. Can't belive my baby will be 3 tomorrow! =)

Yesterday we prepped for painting the closets. They were emptied, doors & shelves removed. This morning I begin painting the 1st three closets. It was exciting to plan, fun to order my DH around, but this morning I am feeling sorry for myself that am here alone & have to paint today.

Yesterday was kind of a down day but I did manage to clear off some of my kitchen counter top. I am gearing up for a big project this week. Removing everything from all the closets, painting, then put stuff back in a more organized manner, packing away or thowing out what I don't need to have in sight. For paint, I have 4 partial gallons of varieties of off-white. I will combine them all in a 5 gallon bucket, have DH mix up real good and use that! Killing 2 birds with 1 stone!

I don't like throwing out magazines, either, because there is always something of of interest in them, but then I am not getting many of them anymore. An older magzine is like looking at something new again. lol.. also those older magazines can be donated to a Nursing Home or thrift shop. Lots of people have brought those into the Home as well and I've seen plenty in thrift shops as well. At least you'll know someone is going to enjoy them if nothing else and you won't feel like you've just discarded them for nothing. emoticon

Had to give up on the windows project.My dog's illness delayed me and now the weather is too bad. I will pare back the project and just do the inside windows and outside only the front door and door wall windows.

Got up Sunday am early and had DH help me move Living room furniture so I could clean the carpet... mostly due to dogs illness. Got that done.

At the cottage, went thru a basket of magazines. Frannie Mae, I am the same way. Can't part with magazines. I threw out alot, but had some Coastal Cottages and put them in order by month and vowed to read one each month, even if the issue was from 2006!

That's a very good idea to do with jewelry you don't wear anymore. I need to go through mine and see what's what.

I really need to get on the ball, my mom is supposed to be visiting for Thanksgiving and things are not looking at all close to where I want them to be. I'm still a bit of a clutter-bug and am having a hard time letting go of certain things; like my toddler's baby clothes and old magazines I'm just certain I'm going to read again. lol

I did get quite a few things done today however, I cleared the basement stairs of all the clutter that had been piled up/down the stairs and I decided to store my baking tins/pans down in the basement out of the way so I took those down there.

So progress. =)

Deep cleaned my bathroom and had a big "scraping" job on top of that. I had two rugs, new ones, with the rubber backing stick to the floor, not sure why, but what a mess to get off. I had to scrape the backing off with an actual putty knife and wall paper remover tool. It was super hard to do because I had to do it on my hands and knees and my hip pops in and out of the socket, supposedly not anything to do with my replacement surgery. Hmmmm...but nobody can tell me WHY it happens. I had the replacement 4 years ago so...
