It never works out....

the way we plan it to.

Hello lovelies! I hope your weekend was as fun filled and action packed as mine was. It was down right crazy to be more exact. The hubs & I went to his high school reunion, a birthday party, church and even found time to spend together before 12:00 am Sunday night. I am exhausted but in a good way then again not so good cause even though the fun weekend is over the reality of a moms work during the week never is.

I had planned to post about my organization efforts on Friday, finish a few sewing projects by today and clean my house while finding time to be out playing with my child but as my hubby says if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Indeed I am failing right now as we speak. Isn't life crazy when you're not organized??? As much as I know that to be true I STILL don't organize and plan accordingly. Know what I'm talking about???? I know you do.

Anyhoo, I stopped by melinda's place - (Parenting Confessions blog) last week and noticed she posted a challenge to help us moms get our acts together and our homes organized. Now I don't know about you but obviously I need some help around these parts. So that said I immediately signed up and should you struggle like me with organization I would encourage you to join too. There is nothing like signing up to get your act together with a friend - and Melinda you are a friend, thanks for what you are doing! Take some time to drop by her blog and check it out - you won't be disappointed.

Back to what I was saying though, I had quite a few plans including opening my Etsy shop on Saturday. Didn't happen cause I didn't plan accordingly. Isn't it discouraging and amazing that we can think for even a moment that we've got it all "under control"? I wanna know who sold me that lie cause I'm gonna choke 'em! God is definitely the only in control and here is the proof that I need help - this is a pic of my daughter's closet. We have been living in our place for over nine months now.

When we first moved in i was very sick and could barely clean but now I am doing MUCH better and no longer have that excuse. Every room was set & decorated but my daughters. Her room has since become a catch all including her closet. Yes to my shame I show these pictures. I already made the hubs enlist as well - a girl shouldn't have to do everything by herself - but that's a whole nother' post though lol - My "plan" is to have it neat and organized come Thursday afternoon so I am free to post about the next area to organize on Friday morning.

The operative word there is PLAN cause like I said I love to be organized i just can't be committed enough to do it. Those boxes are filled with millions - no exaggerating- of papers and clothes and etc. There' s more hiding you just can't see them. I don't even want to look at them. Hope I find some me time in the midst of all this. What do you have "planned" this week?

Hopefully if you're neat and organized it's some time for you.

- Just a thought...

You can do it, Candace!! ;0) I never thought I'd survive cleaning out my daughter's room, but I did it (10 trash bags later! ;0) It looks beautiful and she is so happy!

Work in little time blocks (that's what I did) and you'll be amazed at how much you've gotten done after a few days!

Thanks for the encouragement. Me and the hubs started and it was madness! I can't even begin to tell you - you'll see the pics and they'll speak for themselves. The progress so far though is pure awesomeness!
