Thanks...and...This Is So Embarrassing...

I can't believe what a whin-ey butt I was being yesterday! Thank you friends for your kind encouraging words.


I started on my mission to whip my house and me into place. Here's my first embarrassing picture:

There are about 2 - 2 1/2 loads of laundry here. All needing to be folded. For days. But lookie now:

All tamed! And yes, it did all get put away! I even managed to do two more loads of laundry after this and they got folded and put away too! I cheated on the dinner thing though, I got pizza while I was out! Baby steps...

I also finished my butterfly pillow, which I will post a picture of after I get back from errands and a Doctor's appointment.

I will also be posting a helpful tip for making what I call "Moxy-clean," which is Mom's (me) version of Oxyclean.

Be back soon...

Great start!!!

I had like four loads to be folded on the kitchen table this week. One day I came home and found my DD had folded everything but the socks & undies. Oh yeah! Isn't this why people have kids?? LOL

LOL! these pics cracked me up! You are too funny, girl. You have waaaay to much time on your hands, L! Come be with me in Texas! I'm a bit down too. We'd make a great team. ;)

OMG...this sofa looks like my bedroom! This is the one area I'm not disciplined at. I fold them right away, but they get left in baskets and carried up to my bedroom where family members have to sift through baskets of clothes to find something to wear. It's terrible! I think I'll take your advise and start trying to change things today. I'm cleaning my room!
