Yesterday when Melissa came over, she asked a few times if I was having fun. I was very clear that cleaning and organizing was more like torture for me. I hate it. Something must have resonated, however, because I have been on a little rampage. I have been going through more cupboards, clearing out crap that hasn't been used in years, throwing junk away, and trying to straighten things. I definitely need more help from her, but I feel like I am ready to invest money into creating a better system in my house. In no way has she even suggested that I need to spend money to organize. As a matter of fact, like she said, I had many useful things on hand that was used. Thad even applauded me on my efforts! He agreed that it has to get worse before it gets better. The house seems messier at first glance, but that is because I am not totally sure where to put things.
To those of you out there who are natural organizers, go you!!!!!! I have a l-o-n-g way to go, but slowly but surely, I will get there. If you have any interest in reading her blog or visiting her website, it's:
I also have narrowed down my paint choices I think. I went to Sherwin Williams today, and talked to a lady. I can't remember the name of the color, but it's a very pale green/blue color. It's pretty. Tami will have to confirm for me whether or not it's a good choice. Thad doesn't care, and since she is a painting pro, I trust her judgement.
This has been in no way a restful break. I do feel good that I have gotten so much accomplished. I just have to stay energized, because this weekend is the ice show!

Thank you for the compliment Bonnie!

Bonnie, I can attest to her painting skills too :) I am such a huge fan of blue and we have little of it in our house but the master bedroom is due for a facelift soon and I am hoping to go with a lighter blue. I'll be excited to see your finished results!

We'll see you at the ice show on Sunday more than likely. I used to babysit Mark Ladwig so its always fun to see him perform. Isn't organizing a little addicting? I find it hard to stop once I start.

Here's an idea...have a primary color and then do an accent wall. It looks great. We painted a accent border in our bedroom but in hindsight should've just done an accent wall.

Well now that I put the bedding on, I don't like it as much AND none of the colors I planned on are great either. Since the bedding is darker, I want light.
I hate this crap!
