Cleaning and Clearing

I would love to tell you I spent the long weekend cleaning house, and emptying closets, and
cleaning out the garage, and reducing from two storage units to one, or better yet, to none.

Those were all my plans. But it rained, thank God! (Seriously)

Here's where my plans went awry.

I emptied one closet - the small one. Put all my shoes in their rightful place. In the kitchen, I cleaned out one cabinet, and rearranged all the glassware in it.

We drove to the storage rooms, and ThatManILove looked at them, and we sort of made a plan, i.e., where This is going to go, and That's going to the dump, and That's going to Goodwill, and That can go to the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store store.

Same kind of plan was made for the garage. Y'all know I don't drink, but this is the kind of thing that makes me crazy and could drive me to the bottle!

Now, for the implementation of said plan. Wanna take bets on when?

I'd take up Scotte's offer if I was you. Otherwise, sounds like a HUGE undertaking!! Thank God for rain is right. :-)

Why don't you just let me do it in September when I come?

Wait...I'm not bringing my maid. Scrap that.

Drink anyone?

OK I've calmed down now.

Well hell, it's been THREE FREAKIN' WEEKS.

And just so you know? I'm gonna copy and paste this comment and post it on all the blogs I visit....:))))

I decided I was going to clean the garage while Mum was in Paris. Not sure it will happen at this rate!

Reminds me of a Johnny Mathis song, "The Twelfth of Never"!

I cleaned out a big closet 2 weeks ago with plans to finish it and now I've moved it untouched to another closet.. Sigh

I don't ever want to do the doing!

Apparently, great minds think alike because I've been trying to do the same thing. Unfortunately, I chose to wait until the temps were at their highest. Great idea, huh?

Oh & tell Scotte he can have some of my stuff too, if he'll come & get it, lol.

I've had "clean out garage" on my to-do list for at least three years now.

I kid you not.

Don't give in!
