I’m reading a book on organizing and maintaining. Another desperate measure?
Here’s my take on it. My probably started in college when there was a whole new world opening up in front of my very eyes.
No longer the chubby little girl with a lack of confidence; now a chubby young woman with a lack of confidence and an inability to say no when asked to participate in one thing or another. Reader’s theatre, anyone? Yeah, me! Stage hand? I’ll volunteer! Need a body in the scene shop to build sets or hang lights? Oh, here I am.
And my home became a tangle of dropped papers and piled up laundry. Anybody relate yet?
Then, there were kids and husbands and they just don’t get on the same page with you. You clean until you throw your hands up in despair.
I have enough of a challenge to take care of my own messes, let alone everyone else’s.
So today, I’m making a resolution. One corner at a time, maintain that corner for a while and start on another corner.
Baby steps. I think we’ve been through this before. Hmmmm.
There’s snow on the ground. What is up with the weather? Oh, yeah…global warming. And there is a large faction of folks out there that don’t believe it. Okay, folks, get on board. We’re killing the planet. We have to start fixing it. Again, baby steps are needed by all of us.
Get on board, peeps. We can do this.
Let’s take recycling. I’m not perfect. I slip, but I try. Same with re-useable shopping bags. I remember them more often than not now.
And it doesn’t hurt a bit! It’s a pain-free effort. I really like it when it’s pain free. Making changes too.
So, with the snow, I drove Zach to work. The roads weren’t too bad, so I picked up the daughter and away we went to shop for baby clothes. I had coupons at Penney’s. Woooowhooo. And it was her pay check week and her turn to buy. So much fun and such cute little girl onesies and pants and little jackets and play sets. Love me some Carter’s! Target has some cute stuff too. But she bought a desk there today. We had to retrieve Zach from work to help unload that one! Glad he was available.
She has discovered such cute ideas for baby shower on Pinterest. Can’t wait! One of our Bunco players is also pregnant and one of Falon’s other friends is having dual babes…fraternal twins. Oh, my. I’m thinking play dates. Lots of play dates.
Guess we need to rest up for those.
