Monday,Boxes! every where!

     I worked a little more on taking down Christmas yesterday after my nap.  It seems like I get this burst of energy about 8 p.m. and Hubs then thinks he should help and he just gets in my way.  He cannot see what has to be done and like a small child is right under my feet.  Then when I say take all this down stairs he won't do it, because I asked him to.  Men!

     Anyway I was able to pack up all the china, both mine and Lil sis's.  Really all that is left is the bed linens and taking things to either the storage unit or Lil sis's basement.  I want to get the quilts all packed and the sheets washed before I take anything to Lil sis's house that way I can take a load of laundry to dry at the same time.

     As I have been packing up Christmas I have also been packing up other things in closets.  I tell myself that this item will not be used until say July and then it gets packed as I plan on not being here in July. It does make it easier.  Soon there will be nothing in any closet except our clothes.  Even the kitchen has an entire cupboard and closet just for Swedish baking things.  Seems kind of crazy, but I refuse to give up my heritage, for minimalism, even though most of these things are only used at Christmas.

     I do plan on sewing today.  I have been very lax mostly due to the bad cold and not having any pressure to get things done.  I need to get back into the habit of sewing a certain quota a day. As long as I have the work and the money earned will feed the remodel/redo fund for the house.

    I think I need a list today:  Hopefully this will inspire me to do something

1. do something ( see this is first)
2. get dressed/hair(brush it) I have already greeted two clients looking a fright in pj's)
3. strip downstairs bed and wash linens
4. empty downstairs closet to storage as much as was possible

5. go pay storage fees
6. strip downstairs bath
7. take a load of things to Li sis' house
8. take a load to dry at Lil sis's
9. Put downstairs bath back together.
10. remake downstairs bed
11. brings all upstairs Christmas down and put in appropriate piles
12. Pack up the nativity set
13. strip spare room wash Christmas linens
14. Put regular towels and linen back in spare bath
15.Remake spare bedroom and clean out all drawers and closet for storage.
16.change linens on master bedroom bed and clean
17. sew my quota
18. Make at least one trip to storage unit today.
19. put front room back together
20. Put dining room back together  Still have to put away china in cabinet

21. Clean kitchen
22. Clean family room and reorganize

This could do on and on, let's see what I can get done today.  On your mark get set go!

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



  1. Do you label boxes so you know what is in them. I labeled every box I put in the storage unit...on all six sides. I do not think you should give up the things you love, like the Swedish cooking supplies. I am not a fan of minimalism! I get a burst of energy late, too. I do my best work at night, have all my life.
