Came back Monday night from my trip. Took my clothes straight to the laundry room and did them. Am at work right now. I turned on the water fountain in our entrance so the trickling of the water is calming me so I won't give rent to craziness going on. Good to put things in perspective.

Hello everyone! I have been on a trip. I watched my GD while my son went to Renaissance Fair. Did some after Easter holiday shopping. Bought some decorations for Easter that I had been eyeing for 70% off!!

Yesterday I was in a quilt class. I chose to do my own thing since I have so many unfinished projects now. I need to get a handle on my quilting. Too many irons in the fire!

Off to quilting again. Tomorrow back to work.

My daughters room. She is only 7, but holy cow she never wants to give anything up. AND SHE KNOWS what she has. Crazy girl.

Together we had success in March. I find that if she knows where items are going ( to help others or a friends little sister) it is a lot easier on all of us.

We can do this....together.

Dynamic I agree. Usually those of us who are ďlist makersĒ tend to overdo! I just remind myself if it isnít on the A list I can move it to tomorrow!

Golflady good for you! Doing something you love!

ABQSue wow! I donít think I would know how to take my vacuum apart! Or if I did Iím not sure it would go back together very well! Good for you!

RodyAnne I hope you have a great trip! Sounds like you are ready!

Today I did all my laundry, purchased an edger and some building supplies. Got a battery I needed for a clock and did some fun shopping at Tuesday Morning! Tomorrow is my day off. The quilting day I took back! I have been ignoring what I want to do for all this work! One day a week wonít break the bank!

I did most of my packing this morning and brought the things to the car. It is parked inside a garage so everthing is safe. After work tomorrow morning I just need to put in my last minute things and change into casual clothes. Off I go for 6 days. So looking forward to it.

I took apart my vacuum cleaner that wasn't working because I had vacuumed up a pen. I got it working! YAY! I had been using an older vacuum that didn't work as well.

Celia I always have a to do list that bleeds over to the next day. I was told once in a training session I took that we have A,B and C items. Start with the A items and you may end up moving the C items to the next day until they become A items! LOL

Toni I have put some old family photos I had scanned in on FB for cousins who didnít have them. Technology is amazing now. I bought my DH a gift for Christmas that takes old negatives and scans them in and puts them on a chip for the computer! He scanned about 700 in a few days and the pictures turned out so well!

Happy Easter Knuckles.

Tina I keep trying to get my DH to buy a tool chest for his truck. He keeps all his stuff inside the truck and you canít ever sit in the back and it is always messy. Iím being persistent. Iíll get him to buy one this week if it kills me! I would love to see a clean truck for a change!

RODYANNE I hope you have a good trip in your clean spring clothes!

2BDYNAMIC I noticed the dust in the sunshine when I opened the window the other day. Amazing!

Travelbug I too need to get to the garage. April may be it for me too!

Stitchingran I too spend way too much time looking for lost items. Iíve been making an effort to combine the items with others when I find them in my pursuit of organization. With boxes everywhere from our remodel it is a tough situation. Soon I hope to finish up one of the remodels so we can get a handle on the clutter.

Today I helped DH with some wiring in our house. I also made a ham dinner for us. Amid the boxes I set a nice table with a pink tablecloth, bunny dishes and a centerpiece I had done in a Peter Cottaintail vase I bought at a garage sale. I smell the food so it is almost ready. Hope you all have a wonderful evening.

Happy Easter all! I am among those few cleaning today, because I spent most of yesterday on fitness, pampering, and administrivia. Got an early start, because DH has to work today, so I am working, too, trying to beat down some clutter, get the laundry done, and do some cleaning. And fit in exercise, too!

There is only 1 day left in the month of March and it is Easter.....so many of us won't be cleaning/organizing. I go to a Big Big Big Family party for most of the holidays, so I won't be doing much at home.
Looking back on March I did some amazing purging and organizing of closets, pantry, cupboards - feels good.
But I still have a messy garage "hanging over my head".
I hope to focus on that in April.
Happy Easter to all the Easter Celebrators in our group......

I cleaned the car windows today. I pulled out my summer blouses and things this morning so I washed and dried them before I pack for my Easter week travels. I work from 1:30 to 8:30 tonight so I will finish putting things away after work.

Toni I am so glad to have found the corner toilet. We received it in the mail and it is actually pretty. Has a little different design to it. My DH wants ham but your salmon is a better choice. I hope your family enjoys it!

Tina what a mess huh? The silver lining is you get some new items! Still I bet it isnít all that much fun!

Nola paperwork is one of my biggest messes. I did some yesterday and filled a trash bag with newspapers and old files.

Celia so glad you didnít have to buy new glasses. Even with my insurance we pay a lot for glasses every time! However, you must be nervous about your problem. I hope it all works out for you.

Amanda one cabinet at a time!

Travelbug how nice of you to do placemats for the Wheels on Meals program. I bet it was a pleasant surprise for them. Were they Easter placemats?

Knuckles filing is my worst chore next to cleaning the shower!

VENISEW if we left it up to men I think we would have mountains of paperwork and sticky notes that are never purged. Maybe Iím talking about my DH! LOL

MESEATURTLE I like the way you list what you did.

For myself I spent the day yesterday doing ďstuffĒ . You know that little stuff that piles up when you get busy. I did filing and purged papers, put away fabric I had been working with. I mailed my mother a package and made cupcakes for a charity bake sale for the museum. I bought what I needed for Easter and put up a few decorations. (better late than never) and watered my five new trees at our little house.

I finally finished a bunch of place-mats that I made for Meals On Wheels - They are all assembled, quilted and ready to go.

Now I'm picking up the sewing / computer room.
I know that I will end up running the vacuum through the entire house.....

When I got home from work today I went through the mail and old papers that were piling up on the kitchen table, so the table is finally clean again. Tomorrow is my first day off I've had in a while, so I plan on finally organizing the pantry in the kitchen and cleaning out the fridge.

Our lives can change with every breath we take.

Focused on fitness, med appointments and telework yesterday, so the towels were about all that got done. I even had to rely on DH to run my post office and Dinner Done pickup errands to squeeze my eye appointment in between telcons. Unfortunately, the eye appointment went really long. The good news is that my vision has not changed, so I don't need to buy new glasses this year. The bad news is that the optometrist saw signs of Salzmann's nodular degeneration on my corneas (to go along with the lattice degeneration on my retinas). In addition a ptergium on one eye (I have them on both) has encroached to within a millimeter of my pupil, so he referred me to an ophthalmic surgeon for further evaluation. Gulp!

Wow, Tina, what caused the flood? I ask because we have never used the dishwasher that came with the house (13 years now), and my husband's aunt told us the gasket dries out if not used and could cause a leak. So we've been afraid to try it.

Washed towels today. Much of day devoted to med appointments and fitness.

I'm slowly getting things in order after having my dishwasher flood the house. We are living in a state of upheaval right now was we need to pick new carpet, buy a new dishwasher, pick flooring for the kitchen...the list goes on. Taking it one thing at a time.

DIBANANA, so great to find a fix that will make a great difference in your space! As for me, I did not live a very organized life yesterday, but, today is another day. Heading to yoga and then menu planning and food shopping for the weekend. I guess my disorganized day helped me figure out what to cook for Easter without loading up salty, high calorie food. Alas, I am poaching salmon! I figure with lemon, some sauces it will say Spring and Happy better than a ham. Fortunately my family likes salmon!

Have a good day, team!

So excited. I go through magazines a lot and saw a "corner" toilet. I didn't know they made such a thing. We ordered it and it is shipping. I think it will make extra room in our small bathroom!

Today we will plant two more trees and put in a sprinkler system for the trees and some plywood to finish building our closets. Things are moving along!

Celia I'm sure you will recoup your energy soon!

Great idea to inventory, Carol!

Mylla, you have an amazing amount of energy!

Jet lag continues to claim me. I wake between 2 and 3 am and then crash around 2 pm. I know it will get better, but it's a pain right now. The result is I get little done if not in the first few hours.

So many good ideas here today. Taking a digital tour of house makes such sense. I'm still searching the corners for photographs. Took many out of old frames yesterday and emptied two boxes. Found an extraordinary photo of my mother with the old actor, Peter Lorrie! (From about 1942 or so). There is a story there, one I remember my mother telling. Looking forward to getting it on paper.

I took frames I didn't like to Goodwill and in general am liking that I am making progress on a project I once thought was impossible.

Great idea, Carol (to create a inventory). I wish I had done that. I sure would have needed it last year.

I organized the bathroom cabinet, and got rid of a lot of old stuff. :)

I had my day off yesterday. Apparently, one day isn't actually a very long time!

This is what I did:
-Tidied my bedroom. (Didn't quite finish, but did finally remove the pile of foreign coins on the floor - put them in a ziploc bag sorted by country and put them with my other international money.)
-Shopped for balcony furniture. Bought a lovely little table and two chairs, and got them set up.
-Also, planted some more herbs.
-Shopped for a desk. I think I've managed to choose one from IKEA. I would have bought it, but it was too heavy for me - I'll have to recruit a helper.
-Cooked dinner which I could freeze in portions.
-Baked birthday cake.
-Did the endless washing up after all this cooking.
-Moved two more of the Christmas boxes to the garage.

And this morning, caught up on the tidying and cleaning I meant to do yesterday (since I have people coming over tonight!) - cleaned the bathroom, tidied the living room. Plus, I've laid out the snacks for tonight in the bowls I'm going to use (still in the packets for now, obviously). All I have to do tonight (besides EAT DINNER sometime) is put away the laundry which is hanging up, ice the cake, and maybe vacuum, if I possibly can. Phew.

Carol that is a great idea. I remember when I had to evacuate from my house for a wildfire - I went thru and tried to take digital pix of all my stuff in case my house was not there when I returned.
I think I need to update those pix.

I've started an inventory of my furniture, room by room. I am matching things with the receipts I kept. I'll have a nice record in case I ever need to put in an insurance claim.

Got little cleaning done yesterday, because the jet lag hit me mid-afternoon. Since I had started telework early, I called it a day and took a nap...three hours. Guess my body needed the sleep.

I guess I will start my day with the dishes I didn't do last night! Then I am going to play for a change. Well, work on my quilting projects. I need to get back to one day of quilting a week. It's been all work and no play for way too long! I have unfinished projects everywhere.

Beginning to set aside the most wintry of my winter clothes. Time for laundering them, cleaning them and putting them away for the season. As soon as the sun appears again I can do more. Meanwhile, I am keeping my ski jacket close.

Mylla, for an unproductive weekend, you sure got a lot done!

Toni, I'm not even sure where most of our photos are stashed. Good for you!

Got through my pick 3 yesterday. Today, I woke up about 3 with jet lag and laid in bed till 4. Checked to see if the Office of Personnel Management had made any announcement about the snow and operating status. Nothing, so I got ready for work and left at 5. I was the first person to drive on my street, and it was treacherous! The main road I turned onto was just as bad, so 1.5 miles from home I decided to turn around. Fortunately, my boss understood (conditions are even worse where she lives), so I'm teleworking. Conditions have improved greatly in the last few hours, but I'm staying put.

About 75% of family photos organized and in files by name. I know I am likely to find more stashed around my house but my goal is to get them all in one place. Once they are roughly organized the fun begins to do some creative projects around them. I'm getting into this task, which I have long felt overwhelmed by.

Ugh, sounds awful, Tina.

Had another unproductive weekend. Managed laundry and dishes, no other cleaning.

I did manage to:
-Finally buy some extension cords and a powerboard so I could stop having to move my keyboard closer to the powerpoint every time I want to play it
-Plant some parsley and sage! Got a new pot, some potting mix and seeds - I've never tried growing herbs from seeds before, but I've been managing to keep my other pot plants alive, and I got inspired
-Sorted through my receipt filing tray. Discovered I was so far behind with processing my receipts that I couldn't file the most recent ones, so I then processed three months' worth of receipts. My goal is to actually keep up to date so I don't have to hastily rifle through everything next tax time like I usually have to (I'm only a year behind now, that's progress, right?)

I have the day off tomorrow and I want to make some serious progress at home - just have to decide what to attack. I think I'm going to buy a small table and chairs for my balcony, but that's not really going to help me get organised.

Finally back home and getting back to routine. Unpacked and stored suitcase, and laundry is humming merrily along. Now I need to get off the computer and move so I won't fall asleep and undo any progress on reversing the jet lag.

Too cold to work at our remodel today. So we went shopping for parts we needed and tried to find a 'corner' toilet I had seen in a magazine. I guess I'll check the internet. Didn't come up with what we went for but saw some trees we will pick up hopefully tomorrow for our house.

My winter clothes will stay for a while! LOL

Today was lots of yard-work for me. Because of the wet weather my grass has grown over 6" in just a couple of weeks!! So today I mowed front and back, ran the edger and the weed-whacker, swept everything up, hosed off the front door and screen, watered all the plants.....
Then moved to the backyard and did the same there, plus trimmed all the shrubs, pulled lots of weeds, put lawn seed on the bare spots, re-potted a couple of things.
Then cleaned everything up and filled 3 large leaf & lawn bags. Sprayed Round-up on all the weeds (having a hard time getting rid of them.)


It was a ton of work and I keep telling myself I am too old to keep this up
But my yard really looks nice. It's after 3:00 and I was at it most of the day... LOL

Next I need to do some touch up paint on the front wall, front of the house, the fence etc.
But, that is for another day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
