You've Heard it Before....
You're gonna hear it again. I'm taking a blogginess break. I read this post by Annie yesterday about hording. It kept me up really late thinking about it... I have piles of stuff. My master bedroom is a mess. The rest of my house is not great. And I have two big things coming up. I've invited all of the women from church to come to my house for a class on wheat. WHAT WAS I THINKING??? Argh... and my parents will be here in a week. They have told me they don't care how the house looks, but what they don't understand is that we will be sitting down to listen to General Conference (a broadcast where the leaders of my religion speak to everyone in the church) at the computer. This computer....

Now, you do have to understand that all of those papers were stacked neatly a few days ago. Then I couldn't find something and I just kind of threw them everywhere. And I do have a habit of having an empty and a half full water bottle on my desk. Unfortunately parts of my home don't look much better than the desk. Somehow, I can't seem to find the balance of blogging and taking care of the people who are actually living in my home. Thus, another bloggy break. Yeah, yeah, yeah. You're all doubting me. My last breaks have been... um... short. We'll see how it goes this time. So, off I go. I will horde things no more. I will not allow the clutter to rule my home! Cleaning is my middle name! I AM THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD! Or... um... something like that....

Just in case you come back to the computer--GOOD LUCK. (I wouldn't even take a picture of the office where my computer sits--it also has my scrapbooking stuff in there.)

May the force be with you!

Tonya said...

I completely understand trying to keep it all together. I really hope you come back soon. I enjoy your posts. There has to be some way to have the best of both worlds. You can do it!!

Singing..."Weeee are the Champions, my friends..."

I'm taking a break from my main blog, and pulling a little used blog into the spotlight. My Before and After Blog. I'm going to see how much of my house I can transform before our trip.

Stay in touch and don't be gone toooo long, okay? ~hugs~

I want to do what you're doing...but then again, maybe I'd rather just procrastinate a little...or a lot. ;)

diana said...

Good luck! I took pictures of my living room the other day to document the chaos. I don't have the courage to post it though...

Oy. YOu sound like me.
You know what has motivated me this week?
Music
Make sure you clean to good music.
You should see me cleaning to "Man Of Lamancha"
I'm pretty sure I could conquer any mess with that playing.
good luck!

You know what I like to do? Use matches. Goodbye mess! (Of course, the downside to this approach is that your house kinda goes, too. But who needs it, right? I love getting rained on in the middle of the night while I'm trying to sleep with bugs crawling on me. Glorious.)

At least now I know where you've been! I've been trying to do much more consistent posts since the Halloween launch, and *sniff* I can't get no love.

See you when your house feels better.
