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: http://ididit-fargo.com
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!
