I "gifted" my 10 skeins of yarn to the Women's shelter, when I was there yesterday a new lady came in that needed something to keep her mind busy...her words. She is making hats.

Cathi, yes the worst of it IS in one room, now.... but we won't even discuss the basement! My DH has lived down there since I was so ill in 2001, moved into the younger son's bedroom when he moved out, and has never come back upstairs. He works all night shifts, so the sleeping is easier down in the 'dungeon' hehehe He has pretty much every horizontal space covered with something. It's pretty disgusting down there for sure, not that he would agree with me or anything!

My office is the 3rd bedroom - very tiny for certain, and it contains 2 bookcases, a large corner desk, filing cabinet, 'bar' fridge, 2 huge dog food bins (each will hold a 50 lb bag of food), assorted plants, collectibles (Collies of course), grooming table and tack box, a set of dog jumps, a full closet with shelves to store more dog equipment and cases of pop...... Oh, and most of the wall space is also full of dog stuff - ribbons, rosettes, show photographs and awards. Which said, all in all means that there is just no room in here to have any clutter!!! oops forgot - there are 2 big boxes and 3 grocery store bags full of stuff under the desk too.

The original plan was to have a futon or something like that in here, for guests, or when I have someone here to buy a dog. However it rapidly became THE place to stow anything you didn't where else it could be 'dumped'...... sigh

I have everyone back to their respective homes, now to de-clutter all over again from the holidays. Moslty I received cookbooks and exercise DVD's, but my friend sent me 11 more skeins of yarn. I used one making a hat/scarf combo for my mom, nine more to go.

Ok, Kathy, I have my jealousy under control again. LOL

With my paper clutter strewn throughout the house, I would go from pile to pile and make one big pile if I was expecting company. I would plop it all on my bed and then have the fun of making sense of this huge assortment of miscellaneous papers. I guess I'm still a little jealous because your's is in one room and it probably has a door.

Cathi, don't get toooooo jealous! There is still a LOT of work to do in order to have it fully decluttered, but at least now there are visible, cleared flat surfaces - in some places! And I was able to actually get books back into 2 of my bookcases, what a concept!!! LOL

The big improvement is that I am not worried about the embarrassment of having anyone look / walk into my office for fear of them being attacked by killer clutter.....

Right now, all the (floor) plants from the living room are in here until Christmas decorations get put away again, but it really is way better!

Kathy, I'm so happy for you! May I be really, really jealous too? LOL Happy shredding. Then maybe treat yourself to a pretty plant for your desk, or add a treasured figurine or a gold fish bowl, with a fish of course. :))

I finally took and downloaded pictures of my paper clutter, which is strewn throughout the house as I don't have an office. I'll get them posted soon, then I will post each area again after the clutter is gone or organized.

Thanks for the reminder of one of my important goals, which is also my personal challenge for fall.

Bonnie, listen to Dawn and Cathi - Mono is serious! I hope that you are fully over it very soon, being constantly tired is very debillitating mentally as well as physically too.


HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY!!!

I made it through Christmas Day with a modicum of success!

I FINALLY got my office (almost completely) decluttered, just some final shredding to do, but at least it is all organized now and ready to shred. What a huge job this has been! Whew...

Bonnie, Dawn is right, please take care of yourself, get lots of rest, and try not to stress over anything. I don't know much about mono but knew friends you got it in high school and college. One missed an entire year of high school and the other a year of college. They said they were too exhausted to even do their classes from home.

I know that all the crochet work you do probably doesn't seen like a lot of exertion, but make sure you aren't doing anything that will slow or impede your getting better.

My precious Angel Friend Bonnie: Please listen to your doctor and take care of yourself. Mono is a viral infection of the spleen and can cause very serious side affects if not taken care of properly. I really worry about you my dear. I am so glad that you are back home, even if just for now. Good for you getting the hats done. I am sure that the girls are really happy with them. Please know that I am keeping you in my prayers. Love, Dawn

The computer has been having 'brain freezes' all over the place for weeks now, but seems to be okay again - mystery disease /mystery cure??? At least I've been able to get on spark yesterday and tonight without issues!!! HOORAY

I did pretty well with 4 out of 5 of my fall challenges, not so well with the last one, but am content with what I did accomplish, so will go on from there.

My immediate challenges are to:

1) make it to Christmas in one piece (LOL)
2) have no wrapping left to do on Christmas Eve
3) get the baking done with a minimum of taste testing!!!

The real challenges are:
1) getting more sleep on a regular basis
2) finish decluttering my office
3) eating more regularly

We just came back from the Abundance Exchange and they have taken in a LOT of stuff: furniture, small appliances, toys, games, dishes (full set of china!), electronics, toiletries (all new of course) boxes of food, and so much more. They were in a former grocery store and the place is full! They also had a rack of winter coats. They open tomorrow and people have to take a number and then each adult can take two bags of goods and one large item and each child can fill a bag -- have no idea size of bags. Anything they don't get rid of, the Salvation Army will accept. We felt good having lightened our own load and maybe helped someone else out.

My mom said she wants to go tomorrow, but Angel said they have quite a line by the time they open at 9 and my Mom couldn't and wouldn't want to stand and wait a long time (they open the doors at 8 for people to come in out of the cold, but they can't start browsing until 9). We could go later when the wait is shorter, but by then all the good stuff is supposedly gone. It might be fun to browse but we have another sister's church bazaar and luncheon tomorrow (two Saturday's in a row of them now), so I don't think we'll have time to do the Abundance Exchange too.

I just found another thick file (two inches maybe) that I hope I can pitch. The local animal shelter doesn't need shredded paper right now so it will just go in my recycling bin.

Time to eat then more purging!

Today I got rid of a big pile of paper from research I'd done on a biz idea we were considering before we left VA. I thought I had a lot of paper, but I keep finding more!

I went through books, shoes, costume jewelry, kitchen gadgets, holiday decorations, and more to purge for the Abundance Exchange my neice's church is doing on Saturday. I have a large box started and will add more to it tomorrow.

great job on the paper recycling. I still don't have a job and it doesn't look promising bu I did get an order to make some angels from a friend that is paying me $5.00 each plus supplies. She knows that I am trying to get at least a gift card to Subway for my grandchildren. She even sent the money early

Sorry that you guys are having such a rough weather issue. I saw on the news that there is a huge storm messing with a big chunk of the country. We're lucky and only got rain.

My personal challenge right now is to try to figure out some way to get this sodium down. It's really giving me a fit! Love ya, Dawn

No gym but my workout buddies came here and we did a two hour WATP video. Did I say two HOURS? I meant two MILES! LOL They were whinning enough about doing 30 minutes, imagine if I had something that went on for 120 minutes!

We had a great time and joked about making our own exercise video where everyone isn't so d@mn chipper and you can actually HEAR the music over the constant chatter of the 'star.'

Tomorrow back to the gym

My challenge for this month is STILL paper purging and I did get rid of an entire file of paper from the job I was laid off from a year ago November. All I kept was my exceptional performance eval. Paper to recycling and shredding and one more file bites the dust.

Schools closing early here too. Glad I got out and walked to the store to pick up fruit and veggies even though it was cold and rainy. I also bought the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket for tonight! LOL

Even if we don't make it to the gym tonight because of the weather, I've already got 30 minutes of cardio in!

crocheting doesn't burn alot of calories but it will be fun to have matching hats, I hope to get a picture at the game I give to them at.

what an awesome goal Bonnie! They'll love it. I wonder what the calorie burn is for crocheting. I think I am going to look it up.

walked a lot looking for a job today, I am tired now, going to take a nap before hockey practice.
I think I will change my goal for December to getting the 11 hats crocheted for my granddaughter's team.

I don't always have anything important or even special to say but I find that once I get writing things that need to be said just pop out and they help me. I hope that they help others too. It's a sort of therapy for me. Love, Dawn

Yipee! I love your blogs, Dawn.

I don't know how so many of you do that though. I have trouble finding anything to write about, or to write anything meaningful. Some of you seem to do it so easily.

emoticon If you are as successful with that as you have been with your de-cluttering, you will find a great job. I wish you the best in your efforts.

I am going to continue with de-cluttering as my personal challenge for a while still. My class will be over on Monday; then I will have more time to devote to my home.

WTG Bonnie!

Hi Dawn! Thanks for believing in me but maybe your "feeler" is off today. LOL!!! Would you believe that I got home with groceries and a few things from Family Dollar but forgot to mail my rent check? I ate a late breakfast then headed out again, this time to a closer mailbox. I just talked to Barry and it has been raining for three weeks straight. Today it stopped long enough for him to take the neighbor's dog for a walk and pick up some groceries. So........if this weather keeps up, I might meet him someplace warm and dry instead and in January instead of December. Sometimes it seems my entire life is on hold.

Good morning Bonnie, and thanks for the encouragement! I already spent some time on the decluttering today and have a couple of things checked off that I wanted to accomplish today. Now I'm off to post a letter, pick up some bananas, and check out the Family Dollar that is close but that I never think to go to.

Have a wonderful day!

Wow Bonnie, good job with the de-cluttering! I am in awe of you! I just, tonight, started scanning some recipes onto an optical disk. As I'm going through them, I'm also tossing some of them - ones with odd ingredients and the very unhealthy ones.

I set up a large folding table in my kitchen, which has better light. There I can go through my papers bit by bit and still keep the dining table clear.

Knowing that you were able to accomplish this gives me hope that I can finally conquer my clutter as well.

I finished my fall challenge. I have de-cluttered almost everything I owned. I have a few crochet and quilting books to list on E-Bay so I can get some money to finish Christmas. It will be slim, but we are all alive and that says alot.

My goal for the fall was to work on paper clutter but with an upcoming trip in December, I'm pulled in many directions. Tonight I went upstairs and brought down various things to file, trash, launder and use, shred, and some books to read that I forgot I bought! The box I brought it all down in will be filled with items I'm mailing to my sweetie overseas. I've also offered to have Thanksgiving at my house, now for six. However, my sister may want it at her house, but in the meantime, this will give me incentive to make order sooner than later!

Dawn, you are welcome! I hope you enjoy using the patterns.

Bonnie, I enjoy helping others clean and de-clutter, but it isn't as much to do my own. Is that odd or that! LOL

Today I am going to help my daughter de-clutter. When she moved we did de-clutter alot, but we decided that she needs to clean out a room for her stepbrother and nephew to move into in a month until school finishes. It keeps me busy and I get to spend time with my family today

I hope that you'll be able to fit all your things where ever fits best for YOU my Angel friend.

I can relate to not being able to handle decluttering my OWN stuff Cathi. Thanks for the package of crochet patterns. They arrived yesterday. I am excited about trying some of them out for holiday gifts.

Bonnie, when you're done, will you come to my place? I don't have a LOT of stuff, but what I have I don't know what to do with and sometimes I don't know where to start. I don't have a problem working with other people's stuff, but my own confounds me.

Ginger, enjoy your walks!
