So anyhoot, the organizing thing. I have kept my desk cleared off (you can check that out here). I have kept the herb & supplement bottles filled for just a week (you can check that out here).
I do have to say that what has inspired me most to keep things in order was a blurb from a sweet little blog called 'Clean, Smart, Simple Style'. AlexisAnne said, "First of all, It's much easier to keep a clean house clean. Clutter attracts clutter, whereas clean shiny surfaces draw attention to the one stray item out of place and remind you to put it away." I had heard the 'keeping a clean house clean' thing and the 'clutter attracts clutter' part too. What I hadn't heard was the 'Clean shiny surfaces draw attention to the one stray item out of place' thing. WOW! What a statement! I finally got it. THAT has been what has kept those places picked up. As soon as the one thing that didn't belong there appeared, I have been taking care of it right away. With this thought process now stuck in my brain, I think that I will have even bigger successes!
We have been getting quotes for putting up our pool deck. The weather has been so warm & beautiful here it's amazing. I'm not sure if King Turd of Poop Mountain called the one guy & said come do it or not. But that has been one thing that we've been working on. Hoping to do some more organizing this weekend.
Sunday the Princess turns 18! She's asked for a tattoo for her 18th birthday. *sigh* It's with mixed emotions that we said that we'd get it for her. I mean, I have nothing against tattoos, I have 4 myself & King T has quite a few & his left arm is in the process of being 'sleeved'. So this is our take on it. She's 18. She's old enough to get one without our permission. We decided that we'd do this for her. We want her to get something that she loves (we've discussed how it's gonna be there forever) and is beautiful. We don't want her to get something that she can 'just' afford or that will be done badly or not an appropriate size, just because the tattooist only does an item 'this size = this $$ amount'. So, we're taking her to a reputable place, a place that make sure the environment & equipment are clean & sterile. To a guy that does amazing work & is not afraid to tell you that it won't look good at that size, color, area. He's said that his work is his signature & he takes great pride in what he does.
That's what's been going on around here. A little of nothing & lots of everything. What have you been up to?
Bye! Love you! Have a good day, Dear!
