The good . . . the bad . . . and the ugly!

I read a street billboard that said something like, "The anticipation of knowing you have to wait makes you anxious and increases your perceived wait time". I guess that's what happened to me. Busy schedule aside,my perception was that it would take a long time to clean up the mess. As a result, the room has been messy for months! Reality: I'm happy to report that all three of the work surfaces in my sb room are now clean!!! And I did it all in just one afternoon. :-)

In addition to having a clean space I was delighted to have found a few treasures. One such treasure was a set of UMs I purchased back in May!! So I trimmed the rubber . . . treated it . . . created images for the index file and stored each of the UMs in a CD case! I also finally assembled the stool hubby purchased for me as my Mother's Day gift! See photo above.
Oh wait . . . there is more! Also back in May I ordered 3 new Cricut cartridges. Until today the cartridges were unopened in their original shipping box! Sigh!! They are now organized in one of those generic Cricut storage boxes.

As you can see in this next photo, I was only able to clear out one side of the room. :-( However, this side of the room is cluttered with mainly with things like my old school text books, files, and camera equipment . . . none of which should be on the floor! So I am looking for a new file cabinet to organize the docs. In the meantime, I have to find a safe home for my camera equipment and begin organizing the embellishments from the drawer, which BTW is FULL, in my Scrap Rack.

For now . . . I'm savoring my little victory over part of the mess in that room! :-)

Thanks for stopping by.

1. Congrats on Work surfaces being clean!
2. Love your billboard comment. Too true!
3. My husband is a self professed SLOB. He read that cleaning out things 30 minutes a day would make great progress. I smiled and said "that would be wonderful. you have to start someplace." (My inside voice was laughing!!!!! In my head, all I could think was 30 minutes a day... there aren't enough years make progress. And you can mess more up during the rest of the day.) To my surprise, he is making great progress. Sometimes, I love it when I am wrong!!!!!! Luckily, you didn't have as much to do.... if you cleaned in 1 afternoon!!!!!
