La la la...I don't see you and what I'm reading this week

I'm a tuckered pup.  I'm still dealing with cleaning little by little upstairs.  I'm at the "worse before it gets better" stage AKA "where do I start?  How about nowhere and I shut the door and pretend it doesn't exist?"

But enough of my clutterdome, let's get to...

I'm noticing a sharp drop in pageviews for Fridays.  Let me know if this is something you still care to see or not or if everyone just drops off the Earth come Friday.

  1. I definitely like reading your Friday links and appreciate all the work you put into it. But I'd be curious to see what other readers might prefer to see. I hope you get some good feedback.

  2. Reading this post is my second favorite thing about Fridays! Please don't stop posting! I love to see things on here that I've noticed myself during the week, but especially love the great things I missed that you post - they are so interesting! Makes my day.
    Thanks for a great blog,

  3. I am knee deep in de-cluttering my mother's home while she is in the hospital and am right where you are - it looks way worse than when I started. But I know there are some things that have been accomplished (like items have been grouped together, filing has been done) and it will get better when I put everything back in it's new organized place. Shutting the door has crossed my mind also.

    I enjoy your Friday posts! Always find something interesting, sometimes funny, sometimes informative.

  4. De-cluttering is a constant in my house. Little piles become big piles and rooms that don't get used that much get more crowded even though I say I won't just drop stop off. The problem is I don't have a lot of storage space so I have bins upon bins that have nowhere to go. Anywho, weekend is a meeting in the morning, then housework because the hubs has to work. I'm reading a really good book so I'll reward my efforts with getting lost in those pages. Then Sunday early morning is breakfast with a friend, then grocery shopping. I'm not on-call this weekend so I feel a wee bit more free. it was a very stressful week at the land of the douchebags so I'm looking forward to two days away from there.

  5. I read the links I think sound interesting, but I don't generally comment. The theme of my summer is decluttering. Once I get my kitchen back together, I'll be working on the rest of the house.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate your time! (Heads up though...disrespectful or spam comments will be deleted.)
