Our redecorated guest bathroom is done.
A great big THANK YOU
to thehubs for his painting time and skills.
------------It is a typical January day here in Southwest Missouri. Everything outside is winter brown, it is cold and windy, and I don't really like it.
If I were rich, I would move my entire family someplace warm, someplace where it averages 72 degrees year round. I would take us on ski vacations in Idaho, or Colorado, for a few weeks each year then return to my sunny and warm homeplace.
If I were rich, I would have a housekeeper, or two. I would not worry about the dust collecting on the blades on my ceiling fan or wiping down the baseboards in all of my closets. I would leave for the day, probably go to my country club for lunch with my girlfriends, then return home to a spotless and sparkling home.
If I were rich, I would hire a professional organizer to come for a week each January and help me purge my goodies so I could make room for more and better stuff. I wouldn't think too long as I purged, after all, I am rich, if I want another one or just more stuff, I'll just order it from Amazon.
I LOVE to dream.
It distracts me from real life.
So I let it go, I put it in the donate box and I feel sad about it, my good intentions did not come through.
I called a meeting with myself
and I made a few motions.
Motion #1: If it has been sitting, waiting for over a year to be changed, updated or crafted, donate it. If you didn't find time last year to use it, you won't this year either. Give someone else a chance at it.
exhibit #1: old picture frames
Motion #2: If you bring in something new and put something else into storage, something already being stored must be donated.
Storage space is shrinking in this house, I am getting older and wiser, and crawling under the bed, in the attic and in the back of closets is not as much fun as it used to be, and it takes me twice as long.
