This past week or so has been rather depressing for me. It’s winter. I’m still 69 lbs short of my 70 lbs weight loss goal. My usually happy husband has been hurting a lot with lower back & sciatica pain, thus not sleeping very well and keeping me awake, too. (I am a very grumpy…… Continue reading Oh, The Things You Can Do!
I am a paper loving fool! I have lots of paper, some of which has never been used and then there’s the other kind. Stacks and piles and boxes and files. Paper, paper, everywhere. Notes, emails, receipts, invoices, continuing education courses & notebooks, client files, car titles, report cards, kids artwork, birthday cards, Christmas cards,…… Continue reading New Carpet = Perfect Harmony
This is my FlyLady control journal. It is named Pinky & The Brain. Well you get the Pinky part… The Brain is below. All “lists” are laminated. I use a dry erase marker to write on the laminated pages to check off the items when they are done. Then when I am finished with the…… Continue reading Pinky and The Brain
A couple of days ago, I decided to simplify my life and get down to just one google account for my blog. I am not sure why I had 2 accounts in the first place. Anyway, I merged the account and deleted the old account. Then decided I should add a new template to my…… Continue reading uggh! I’m working on it!
I know the title is incorrect. The correct movie title is 2010: Odyssey Two, but 2010 – A Space Odyssey is more appropriate to my circumstances. I am on a mission and it might as well be to Jupiter if my past history is any clue to the success that I will achieve. Objective: To…… Continue reading 2010 – A Space Odyssey

Oh… and I made the fleece jacket he is wearing. This cake was a disaster! I made it from scratch and the cake part I…… Continue reading I haven’t posted since November… so get comfy!
I am still working on organizing my home office/sewing/study/work/craft room. It has been a challenge for me, to say the least. I hate filing and most of the mess in my office is the mountain of paper that I don’t know what to do with and the rest of it is papers/bills, etc that need…… Continue reading Still Getting Organized
I’m getting organized… or at least corralling my junk a little better.I found these boxes at the thrift store yesterday. They look like they could be VHS boxes but they aren’t the right size and don’t have the little circle thing-a-ma-jigs. I cleaned out my desk and gathered up all the sewing notions I had…… Continue reading I’m getting organized…
When we moved to our home 3 years ago, I was thrilled to have main floor laundry. No more lugging laundry baskets up and down the stairs. No more mountains of laundry because nobody would go to the basement to do laundry. However, main floor laundry does have it’s drawbacks… at least in this house…… Continue reading Managing the Laundry
My spice cabinet is tiny, only 10 inches in width. I am short, only 5’2″ with shoes on. I can’t see above the first shelf of most of the cabinets in my kitchen so I have a nifty little wooden stool that resides in the pantry that I pull out when I need to get…… Continue reading Necessity, the mother of invention, can be green, too!
