Gosh Paula I am so sorry for you not finding it! I have a special purple tote type bag that I got at the thrift that I use just for library materials. Maybe you can find a special bag you can keep in your car on mom's errand days? Then if she hands you something... in the bag it goes.

Granted that does not help with finding the lost one now but... Have you checked her house for it? Maybe she didn't hand it to you?

These types of things drive me crazy too! I hope it turns up soon!

Didn't find it yet....and that's assuming that we EVEN have it here....but these kinds of things drive me crazy...I start imagining all sorts of scenarios where she could have given it to me and I could have lost it. It's not due till July 1 so maybe it will turn up by then -- that is if I didn't a. drop out the car door on a parking lot somewhere b. accidentally get it mixed in with a donation bag c. somehow drop it into a recycling bag d. have it sitting somewhere in plain sight and am just not seeing it. e. whatever strange thing I can dream up to explain where it might be. It will probably cost about $40 to replace. That is cheap compared to all the satisfaction and books and CD's and DVD's she checks out of the library every week. She might have anywhere from 10 to 15 CD's at a time checked out. She passes them on to me and my brother when she is through if there's enough time left before they have to be turned in....that's where all the confusion is coming from.

Did an additional 10 minutes under the bed this afternoon....looking for a lost CD from the library. My mom checked it out and thinks she gave it to me to listen to when she was done with it. Just covering all the bases. It wasn't under the bed....but WOW, there sure was a lot of dust under there. Ended up doing a sweep and dust mopping. Amazing how it builds up -- seems like we just swept under there several weeks ago.

10 minutes refreshing the sofas in the den -- redoing the covers we keep on the sofas, straightening them out, getting the cushions in the right place. Amazing how much stuff gets down in the cracks -- magazines, papers, etc.

10 minutes on my purse this morning....DH gave me some cash to put in my wallet so decided that was a good time to get rid of all the old receipts and odds and ends that always seem to end up there....found a coffee stirrer, some stick gum that had come out of the wrapper, a napkin from when I took my Mom to her 70th hs reunion last month....you get the picture.

10 minutes (and that's really about all it was...lol) putting things away in the kitchen. DH and I are good about washing dishes, but sometimes not so good about putting the clean stuff away -- especially if it's plastic containers that are hard to dry or things that DH doesn't really know where they go.

Being without internet has it's advantages....this morning I thought to myself that I had too many towels stacked behind the tub and would spend 10 minutes selecting a few to have on display....... 3 hours later, some major work had been done. Looks so good in there now, and my operations will be streamlined. So much of that STUFF was not even being used.

Oh--the vanity counter -- mine always needs tidying. emoticon

today after I got home from the Y, I did a quick tidy of a shelf in the garage where I keep my potting supplies. DH and I were looking for a trowel, and there was everything there but a trowel.

Took about 10 minutes (in between ST exercises) to finally put up the folded laundry items that had been sitting in a basket on the bedroom floor. Looks so much better without those laundry baskets sitting on the floor in there.

Went through the fridge and pulled out bagged lettuce and produce that needed looking at....tidied up the produce bins. Pulled outer leaves on the lettuce that looked like they were about to go bad and made a small salad with the rest to go with the black-eyed peas (Hoppin John) and Swiss Chard I cooked.

I love 10-minute tidies!! It's like a game, and I get more done in those 10 minutes sometimes than I do in a whole day! And the wonderful part of them is that I usually want to keep going even after the timer goes off. We always called them 10 minute cleaning frenzies when my kids were at that wonderful age where they thought of it as a competitive game!! /// Today that 10 minutes will be spent here in my "computer room" where I tend to leave a clutter of paper and books throughout the week. We'll see what 10 minutes can do!!

Reorganizing bedroom drawers - pulling out some of the heavier winter clothes, narrowing it down to turtlenecks without the heavy sweaters. It's not spring here yet, but I'm doing my best to bring it on!! emoticon

Did a quick "hang up" in the front entry coat closet -- a lot of them had slipped off hangers or been quickly thrown in without hanging up. I'm thinking it's time to do some thinning out as well.

KMF -- you are such a good emoticon cheerleader for us! I see you've started in the office. emoticon

My 10 minute tidy was when I got home today -- I put away the multiple pairs of shoes, pants, sweaters, necklaces etc I had pulled out to try to put myself together for a monthly lunch meeting with friends.

PATTY - So true!!!! It's amazing how it happens and how quickly it happens. Isn't that like the Second Law of Thermodynamics? (wow Physics was a long time ago, but even way back then, it made an impression on me!)

PAULA - I have SEVERAL of those "spots" that are a constant battle.

And speaking of constant battles, JUMPUP, yes, afghans and pillows needing straightened or put away - yes, never ending!!

I'm dealing today with books, and books, and books that tend to accumulate on the bed in my "office" (actually a spare bedroom but where I keep my clothes and computer and - yes, books!)

But it is amazing what can be accomplished in a concerted 10 minute effort!!! emoticon :: Fit and Organized!!

Patty -- isn't that weird how things seem to get dirty and disorganized -- all on their own? It's a mystery. emoticon

Our new granite counter top bar (that I promised myself would never again be a clutter magnet) seems to be full of junk mail, old VHS tapes, and a few other odds and ends. I am heading in now to do a 10 minute tidy on that very spot.

Things always get dirty when you shut off the lights; just like the laundry and trash reproduce. I spent 10 minutes today putting away things that weren't in their right spot.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Wow, Jayne! what a thing to have happen! Glad you were able to sleep in your bedroom last night. emoticon

10 minutes today cleaning the top of an antique music cabinet in my bedroom. It's where I keep some of my jewelry, but things tend to pile up there -- earrings get mixed up etc. It's only for jewelry I can't easily store in my drawer where I keep the rest of it but sometimes when I get in I just throw everything there.

So...my 10 minute tidy today was actually a major undertaking. But I can sleep in my bedroom tonight and shower in my own bathroom tomorrow. Some background...I had a major water leak, which resulted in the ceiling falling in in my bedroom right before I left on vacation in the middle of December. The leak was fixed before I left, but the repairs to the bedroom and bathroom were done while I was gone. My bedroom isn't completely finished, but it's finished enough to sleep in there. And now that it's clean, I can!

...it's the little things... emoticon

I know what you mean.

10 minutes in the hall closet pulling out craft items for the kids class I'm teaching tomorrow. I take the childrens SS craft in a bag with all the supplies we need....then have to admit -- sometimes don't put the supplies up where they go...just stick the bags with everything in them in the closet. Finally found that fine jute after going through 4 bags and putting up supplies. We're making shell necklaces tomorrow.

10 minutes in "my" computer room. It is also the plant room (where we have potted plants during the winter - 43 pots last time I counted), spin bike room, craft room, and seems to be DH's music room where he keeps his guitars and sheet music.

Have a doc appt today that will take up most of the day, so if I can get the kitchen tidied I'll be really happy!

I want to get the kitchen battened down a little at a time, so I can start patching and sanding without it ending up in my food! I already know I'm going to have to wash EVERY dish.

It was errand day in town (I take my Mom and assist her), so while I was waiting at her podiatrist appt, I went completely through my purse and put outdated coupons, trash etc in a plastic bag to throw away. Took duplicates out of my little cosmetic bag. It actually took about 10 minutes and then I worked on a sudoku.

Love the way a new color of paint changes and freshens a room! It is a lot of prep work, but so nice to finally be putting the paint on the walls. Our den is the next room to be done -- I have an experimental color on one wall that I like, and have finished it off to make it look intentional so we can live with it awhile while deciding if we will "bump" the room out a bit when funds permit.

10 minutes today on my desk in the living room -- a few things need to be done before the roll-top can be closed.

oh, I know what you mean about the color. What we go through to be beautiful, LOL!!!

Ultimately, my plan is to paint every room in the house but one - that's a lot of prep work, but it's got to be done! I can only do a little at a time, because I can't afford to buy all the paint at once! My plan is to start painting in my bedroom, the least amount of prep, but to start the prep in the kitchen - the most to do, also the hardest. Well, actually the bathroom will be next to impossible - involving regrouting tiles and finding replacements for broken ones.

But TODAY's 10 minutes will be spent sweeping and mopping the basement floor - at least the laundry room.

Yes -- 10 minutes was not enough on the pasta cupboard. 10 more minutes today while I've got the color on my hair (sure do dislike process of putting color on, but love the result after the gray is covered).

Great idea to prep for painting -- what are you going to paint?

Oh, Paula, that reminds me that I have to get to my pantry closet!! That'll take more than 10 minutes, though!

Today I'll run the duster over the floors.

I plan to paint in the spring, so I may start doing 10 minutes of prep work every day - or not, we'll see, LOL!

10 minutes on the cabinet that holds pasta, cooking oils, vinegars, rice, assorted spice mixes and who knows what else. It's gotten out of control. I won't be able to get it all done, but there are several things in there that I know I'll probably never use.
