Cute quote...

" I know that having my space organized is a good thing. Now if I can only find someone to clean it!"- unknown author

This is so true for me, especially while having work done on our home and ALL the end of the year stuff that goes along with being a teacher... I keep finding myself running from pile to pile and stack to stack... :)

Have a great day!

    I'll come over *jokes*. Just kidding, but why is it that we don't mind helping to clean someone else's house better than cleaning your own. When my sister-in-law was alive and we were younger we would help each other out and clean so we could get done faster (we lived in the same house old Victorian house that was converted to two apartments). Well best I can say is what I try to do is sort one room at a time...put like with like so it's easy to find things, for example crafty items with the same, pens with office supplies etc, and eventually it will all be organized. I love space bags for winter clothing too. Best wishes to you!

Oh and one other tip, you must have motivating music on...it really helps!

    We just did a garage sale and now I have more piles of stuff that I do not know what to do with. I wanted to sell, it did not sell, and now I need to remove from the garage. I think I will take to Good Will but when is the question.

    I can't stay organized because I just have too much stuff! My girls are in their forties and I have some of their stuff. Why don't I let them decide if they think it's something worth keeping or not??? emoticon

A quote..

"A goal without a plan is just a wish."- Antoine De Saint-Exupery Author

Although short this quote made me think about how many times I actually say, " I wish..." when perhaps I should be focusing on a plan with a goal in mind.... Hmmmm.....

Have a great day!!

Gratitude...

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Melody Beattie

Coach Nancy quote...

Friday, April 27, 2012

If you never take risks, you may never appreciate your full potential.- Coach Nancy

As I get older I find myself MORE likely to push myself towards goals that at one point I thought were not attainable... perhaps it's an age thing....

Have a great day!!
