Freezer is still sitting in my kitchen---told dh that it goes out TODAY! the kitchen feels like such a mess---but I am maintaining a clean dining room table for the most part---right now, the bills I paid yesterday are sitting there waiting for me to mail them. I plan on recleaning the kitchen once that freezer gets out of my way!

I have loads of stuff from my old job that they don't want back, and loads of things to go on ebay or to the charity shops; I want to get both of these sorted out today.

Just because you have been through the rain of life doesn't mean I have to walk around in wet clothes forever; there is a warm towel, a big hug, and a mug of low fat cocoa waiting for you somewhere!

Hope you get that figured out.
We bought a new freezer and the little one is still sitting in my kitchen---in my way and making me very aggrevated----all I got to say is that they better get it out of there this weekend or heads will roll---LOL
The desk situation is just the pits---one of them is a space hog and all she does is complain---she actually switched chairs as mine did not roll well---well, the chair at the desk is my personal one and replaced a really crappy one that was there---so she had to move it back----sure she has whined about that---the whole situation is really bringing me down and I feel very grumpy tonight.

Bummer about having to share a desk.

I did a little more work on my pantry/craft supply room. It's starting to shape up altho during the hurricane I noticed there was a constant drip-drip-drip behind the drawer units I put in. Looks like some masonry work and it looks like it drips down and goes under the flooring and is maybe rotting away underneath. You gotta love being a homeowner.

Still prepping for the hurricane. Also had to bring home all my personal stuff from school---having to share a desk so no place for them----have to figure out what to do with that stuff.

I spent part of yesterday and today deconstructing part of a shelving unit in the basement and putting in 3 drawer units that have been sitting in my garage for the last 2 years that I got on freecycle. It's for organizing my craft stuff and I still need to put things away but there's a lot more places to put stuff. I've also started to throw stuff out and I'll put some stuff on freecycle. Bonus was that the garage is also in better shape.

Why not make one of those drawers a space for not sure items? and after 6 months, if you have not used it and moved it to another drawer, then you know you can get rid of it.
Past few days I have decluttered my kitchen counters(again---but not all me), cleaned my living room, and also the dining room so we could use the table again! and cleaned one section of my desk top. Today I am grass cutting and weed whacking and then maybe the other section of my desk.

I am going to do 6 small deep drawers in my master bathroom vanity. They are awful, make-up, combs, hair stuff, and the ever present miscellaneous. I did them 4-5mo's ago, but I guess I didn't purge enough. So purge it is today. These are the jobs I think will take an hour and then it is at least two. I think I will tidy under the sink too. emoticon

Lectates, sorry about your mom being in the hospital. I hope she feels better soon. I had to laugh at your son's bed being in your living room. It seems kids ALWAYS leave their crap anywhere but their room. My five year old drives me crazy with all his little itty bitty toys and not so little. Guess it doesn't get much better when they get older either. lol

Today I did a clean sweep of some items I had on shelves and two tables. I thought I'd miss those things but I don't. They are in boxes now. I still need to sort through what's trash and what's necessary. I'm just amazed at how much clutter we accumulate thinking that we NEED those things when we really don't. It feels so good to have clutter free tables.

I spent yesterday at the hospital with my mom---she had a new stronger pacemaker put in---so nothing done at the house---and boy, do I need to do some work in the kitchen and mail off the bills I paid this weekend---but have to go back to the hospital and take her home today---and then probably go over this week so she won't be alone while my sis it at work---at least til Friday---so not much getting done---when I am home, trying to catch up with Spark mail and other email.
But my son went and bought himself a new mattress and frame---and now his futon is apart and in my living room---grrrrr

This was actually empty boxes that needed to be broken down. It took me 10 minutes. I don't know why it took me weeks to do.

I also got up-to-date with my finances.

I consider IRON to be a 4-letter word. I iron when I sew. In the winter, I'll sometimes iron. I did some hemming yesterday and couldn't bear to iron - 102 deg.

I think ironing is a southern thing, isn't it? No one really irons in my home. I don't recall much ironing growing up either. NOW, my bf whose parents are from Norfolk, VA and Alabama, they iron -- a LOT. Each Sunday they iron everything for the following week. BF does the same. Sometimes he insists on me taking off my wrinkled (in his eyes) clothes and letting hm iron them. I'm fine with whatever wrinkles the dryer can remove. I just can't be bothered. lol

Lectates, I don't know. I accumulate emails in both personal and professional life. I think it's just something I have with saving things.

Other abbreviations: SMH (shaking my head), lmbo (laughing my behind or butt off -- u can use the "a" word too), BTW (by the way). I'm sure there are more just can't think of them now.
Happy Sunday!

Oh my gosh---how did you get that many emails saved? don't your delete some as you go? Although, at school, one vp just kept all emails sent to her---until she was not getting anymore---the tech had to come in and help her--her box was so full that it would not take any more emails---LOL
Ended up painting some wooden items I bought for my ddg's play house---at least that is done and they are gone to her house---she liked them and so did her mom---so today I hope to work on those recipes.

hi everyone! just checking in. i haven't done much in the decluttering area as of late, EXCEPT my yahoo mail. I had close to 95,000 emails in my inbox. Fortunately, Yahoo has a new system that allows you to delete 25,000 emails at a time. Before i could only do 100 at a time, and would get so frustrated, that I'd just stop. It's an awesome improvement. I don't even look. I'm down to 27,000 or so (can't remember). And I'm going to try to delete most of those.

Hope everyone is having a great day. It's SUPER, CRAZY HOT in the DC Metro area. Stay cool.

Think I might play around with my recipe folders ---have copied a bunch and not put it in the binders yet---good chance to go thru them and pick out a few new recipes to try while I am going this.
And tip for today from me---don't keep magazines because there is a recipe or article you want to save---tear it out as you are reading ---then get the plastic sleeves that fit in a notebook and put these things in there---once you try the recipe--make a note on it---like I put 3 stars if we really liked it----and if you don't like it, just take it out and throw it away----I have one notebook for desserts---most of my Christmas recipes are in this one---and one for regular recipes---and another book for decorating ideas---takes up a lot less room than magazines and then you can recycle them. Call your local schools and see if they want your magazines for art or consumer science classes--if not, take them to recycle.

Must finish the kitchen today. Cabinets are done. Now on to the rest of the kitchen today. Three and a half bathrooms as well are in the plan. Unfortunately there are cabinets in all bathrooms and I just know there are old makeup items and other out of date items in them lurking around. Yuk! At least it is indoor work in all of this heat! Good luck to all the clutter releasers out there. Let it go just let it go!

My son came over to put a new dryer hose on---so I got the area behind the washer/dryer cleaned up and the kitchen straightened up---today I will get some items put up on the wall that I just bought.

Too hot to work outside so today will be cleaning out cabinets in the kitchen. Out with any old items that might be lurking and out with unused utensils etc. Might listen to some snappy music while I work away.

Hey, you at least hit 5 rooms---that is an accomplishment--just hit the other 4 one each day this week. Make sure to set realistic goals for yourself and not to beat yourself up for only doing part of that one
Today is laundry---it mushroomed overnight---LOL---run a few errands---and put away my scrapbooks and put up on the wall the items I bought last week so they are not cluttering up the floor and table.
