Friday, Doing for others.

     Last night we watched Hub's nephews youngest son for about 3 hours so I did not get the things done around the house I wanted to.  And then just as the baby was picked up we got a text from our neighbors asking us to watch the  littles today. We only have the baby right now and he is much easier that the 17month old who is on the go all day. 

     It is nice to be around babies when you are sad as they as so funny and lovable. I have gone into the spare room upstairs and emptied all the drawers and the closet, of course it is all on the bed so I have to find places for the stuff.  Then I need to clean out the medicine chest and drawer in the spare bath.  This is a work in progress.  Finding places to put everything.  I am really trying to declutter as I go and get rid of things that we don't or will no longer use.  This house is so full of things.  Every cupboard I open could use a good do over.  But one thing at a time.  You know me I have a tendency to get too many things going and then there is a disaster.

     I need to pay all the bills and will do that this evening.  I also was able to finish 2 wedding dresses yesterday so they should  be picked up today.  There is a pile of hemming I need to get done today and the ironing is taking over badly.  I need my Sissy.  I hate that she lives so far away.

     Hub's nephew changed the belt on my vacuum last night and the neighbor is coming over on Saturday to do a few honey do jobs for me which will be nice. So I have no excuse not to clean up this place a little.

     All I need to do in the basement bedroom is hang a curtain and it is ready.  The upstairs I have to sort and clean, but it will get done.  I just wish I did not have to do it!

     We have to attend another funeral tomorrow in the tri-cities.  Not looking forward to the long drive, but it is what it is.

     I would really like to enjoy my summer so far it has been just a bit off.

So I am off to get some work done and see what other problems I can stir up.  I am good at that.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. Sewing is a great de-stresser for me. Is it for you?

    1. Yes it distresses me also if I am not rushed or super busy. Heck I am always super busy.
