ANOTHER HOUSEWORK DAY....:O(

A girl HAS to have a good, substantial breakfast before attacking the house for the dreaded.......
HOUSEWORK DAY


GOOD GRIEF....no wonder SWEET MAN can't find a certain cap when he's looking for it....

they are all jumbled up together....

We gotta address this issue and SOON.....
Where will the extra ones go, tho ????
SWEET MAN is out of town for the day.....would he miss a few of these if they suddenly disappeared?
YEP....I'm afraid he would !

This is my teeny, tiny little pantry and if I don't keep it straight and in some sort of order, I can't get very much in it....

Gonna have to take out....
Wipe off........
Rearrange in an orderly fashion so I can see WHAT'S IN THERE !!

This is what I call, for a lack of a better title, my

OFF SEASON JUNQUE CLOSET....
It is just flat pitiful......
There's fall decorations, Christmas decorations, Easter decorations.....
Chair pads, candle holders........
all jumbled up together

I am so messy when it comes to my closets....

I need to work on this and SOON.....
maybe this afternoon


AND...of all places to just throw stuff in....

MY WATER HEATER AND AC UNIT CLOSET
(this is SICK)

The trouble is....it is in a hallway that I walk down a million times a day and, sometimes, when I don't want to walk ANY further, I just pop things in there !

I NEED A SHED, just for my STUFF....but I don't have one ! *sigh
A STUFF SHED

AND, this is my

OUT OF SEASON CLOTHING and TOY BOX CLOSET
a description that is pretty BROAD....

Now, I ask you, WHERE else would I keep coats, toys, extra pillows, Halloween stuff .....

Oh, but it needs to be straightened and fluffed and made SENSIBLE....

I just don't know exactly how to do all that ! So...most of the time, I PLAN on cleaning it all out but I usually just end up CLOSING THE DOOR......
MIGHT get to this closet this afternoon......

OH, and made myself a NOTE to do
THIS
this afternoon, too.......
ALWAYS.....ALWAYS,
we have THIS to contend with !!
"BJ!!!!!! I just got back home and read your note...I gotta say it....I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!!"

YEP, I was DOUBLE DOG DARED to show you my dirty laundry by DOT over at

PICKET'S PLACE....(you rascal, you)

and, so I did ! =D

See ya'll tomorrow...I gotta go get that washing machine started....
Oh, and the Utility Closet that houses my washer and dryer.....not even a
DOUBLE DOG DARE
can make me show ya'll THAT closet !!!
*********
Get caught up on your washing and cleaning so you can go do something fun!

Me?
I am just blowing off the closets and stuff for now...I am going for a
COKE FLOAT
this afternoon
with a friend.....
She tells me "LIFE IS SHORT, EAT DESSERT FIRST"
and I say ALRIGHT !!
All at once, all my pictures are a LOT bigger this morning...even on my sidebar !
What's THAT all about ?? Blogger issues ?

Good Morning BJ, I find when I am overwhelmed by how many big projects I have to do it helps to just choose one or two and tell myself that is all I need tot get done today. Too much on your list means you probably wont do any of it! Once you get one closet done you will be so happy it will spur you on to do more. I have been working on my (dungeon) basement, and I just didi some major cleaning in my bedroom. THere is still more to do (isn't there always?) but I am so happy about what I have gotten done. Have some fun too and a very happy Mothers day!

Amelia said...

I do have a shed for holiday decorations - plus a variety of other stuff. Sometimes (most) it looks like a Oklahoma tornado has gone thru it...but I know what is in there and pretty much where it is located.

Enjoy today and clean out stuff next week.

You are just airing all your dirty laundry aren't you! LOLOL! Just keeping it real, that is what I love about you! I cleaned a few closets and cabinets this week, but never got around to putting away the "odd, don't belong in there objects"...now my in-laws are on their way for a Mom's Day cook-out this afternoon, so guess where that stuff is going...shoved BACK into that closet & cabinet! Just wasted that much of my life this week, when I could have been blogging instead! LOL!

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!!! Hugs, Rhonda

Beverly said...

Girl, we just gotta love you. You always, always make me smile. I have to get my morning BJ fix every day.

I have to tell you that I am a closet freak - mine are so organized that some people probably would call me anal. Imagine such a thing. :o>

Anita said...

Busy busy busy!

I've been at a meeting most of the afternoon about sustainable food production and distribution, and creating a farmer's market in Greensburg... So many exciting things! So I have an excuse for not doing my housework today... lol

I've always wanted to be a professional organizer - help people "simplify" and organize! I'm much better with other people's clutter.. lol (no emotional attachment!)

Nan said...

Hi there. I love that comment about airing your dirty laundry. LOL
Could you come clean my house when you get done?
Hugs,
Nan

Cyndy said...

Jackie said...

I would say stop and enjoy a nice cold drink. The closets will still be there later.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

God bless.

Janera said...

You are so brave and funny! If I posted my "before housekeeping" pics, the Health Department would arrive immediately with a padded truck and a straightjacket with my name embroidered on it.

Some messes are worse than others, ya know? I have teenagers. I better keep my postings "after".

Have a blessed Mother's Day!
