has come to my house over the last several days. Over the last several days I have been overwhelmed with getting more things organized. Jeepers!!! I go from having no motivation to overkill….hoping that I will get some balance back soon. Seems like that has been my mantra for the last several months. Oh well, it is what it is right?
Ephesians 5:15-17- Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Yesterday I spent a good portion of the day cleaning out my INBOX on my computer. You heard me right…I had over 7 thousand emails. Don’t ask why I let it get so bad. So I sifted through them and kept what I wanted (you know all the cute pictures my sister sends of my nephew Caleb) and important stuff, like emails my hubby sends me (wink). Got everything filed away from decorating inspiration to recipes. What a good feeling it was last night when I went to bed and nothing in my inbox. I would say yesterday was a complete and utterly productive day. BTW, Mandi has a great article on helping you get started on organizing your files here. To top it off I also took my darling daughter and her boyfriend to lunch and spent some time with them. Fun times!!
But the highlight of my day was when I cleaned out my armoire to get things ready to give to goodwill. I had stacks of shorts and blouses, that I couldn’t wear and decided that I wasn’t going to hang onto them anymore much less move ifn we ever sell this house. But thankfully before I threw everything in a bag to ditch, I tried a few things on and to my surprise everything fit. I knew I had lost a little weight because my clothes hadn’t been quite as snug, but when I got on the scales I was surprised to see I had lost 10 pounds. Did you hear me? 10 pounds. I was doing the happy dance. Now if I could lose about 15 more, I would be where I would like to be. Over the last several years the weight has creeped on, but fortunately for me I hide weight well. But I just wasn’t as comfortable as I was used too, so losing the extra pounds has felt wonderful.
Today, my goals are to spend some time cleaning out some of my other computer tools. My Google reader, Springpad, organizing my file structure, and if time allows, get to some of my photo editors. I really need to get a handle on my Picasa and photobucket accts. Although the sun is out and wooing me to come outside, I think I best stay in and stay cool. It’s going to be another hot one today?
Before I close I wanted to share a link with you for the 50 best organizing blogs, because if you are like me…you like ORGANIZED chaos. Check them out here.
Need to scoot, time is wastin…
