Good morning! I hope your Memorial Day weekend was wonderful. Mine was "different", lol. I did not accomplish even one thing that I had hoped to accomplish...but instead accomplished a few things that really needed attention.
Over the long weekend, however, I did accomplish some very "necessary" things around here. Yesterday I decided to tackle our "stationery drawer" in the kitchen. Since I couldn't stand too long I pushed a kitchen chair over in front of the drawer. It is located near the phone and holds the usual things...pens, pencils, paper, clips, binder clips, rubber bands, phone book, scissors, tape and take out menus. I can honestly say it was barely shutting there was so much junk just "shoved" inside. SHAME ON ME!
So I began pulling out one item at a time and either setting it on the kitchen table to keep or tossing it immediately into the trash can next to me. When I was all done emptying the drawer I tested all of the pens and threw out TONS of old ones with dried up ink. Where in the world did they all come from??? I really think they multiply in the darkness of the drawer! Unfortunately I forgot to take photos before the revision. Let's just say the drawer was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! I found things in there dating back to 2009!!!
Yesterday J and his Dear Girlfriend K came over so K could cut my hair and J could set me up on a different computer and hook up my new printer. My printer died last week and the MacBook computer I have been using is dying a slow and painful death. It was purchased for J back in 2006 and he handed it off to me when he upgraded. Unfortunately last week I received a message that Firefox could no longer support its operating system. That was the final straw. Time to set me up on something a bit newer!
So my long weekend was a good one. I spent a LOT of time resting, but did manage to accomplish a few necessary things around the house. Hopefully this week will be a continuation of progress toward our 2013 goals of purging through and organizing the entire house.
Off to chomp on the next bite of my elephant....after a bit of rest, that is!!!!!
