I'm going in...


Today is the day...I can't put it off any longer...I've stalled as long as possible...and papa bear finally let out a roar (well at least a "maybe it's time" statement but roar sounded better, forgive the writer in me for the exaggeration).

This house has been sadly neglected since the sewing bug flew in a few weeks ago.  I have stacked and restacked the same papers and linens and folded laundry as often as is humanly possible without actually putting it where it belongs and then snuck into my sewing room for one day too many.

So today is the day that I actually find a place for everything that has been collecting on all those flat surfaces that things just naturally collect on.

I warned my hubby that it might get worse before it gets better because the issue is a storage space one and that means purging and that means taking stuff out of cupboards and that means that stuff has got to rest somewhere until I decide what to do with it.  You do that too, right?

So I'm going in...come looking for me if I don't come out.  If you can't find me anywhere make sure you knock on my sewing room door and make sure I didn't wander in there by mistake, (wink, wink).

Happy Monday!

xo, Patty


  1. Patty, Step away from that machine !! LOL. bless your heart. I hate that we women never get us a big old pole barn for our stuff like the fellows do. I sure could use the help of an organizer but I have no place to put things that would be corralled . I just need to start tossing. Good luck Patty. I will be thinking of you. xoxo,Susie

  2. I hear you Patty, Many times I have had to force myself to do the organizing that needs to be done. I'm always glad when it's done and it always makes life easier. Good luck!

  3. Do something to inspire the rest of us!!

  4. Patty,
