Cleaning and Organizing oh my...part one!
It's been a busy two days. I didn't feel real well on Sat. morning due to dental work the afternoon prior. Two Ibuprofen seemed to help though. In the afternoon, I fiddled with cleaning. Our Bible study group was coming over after church on Sunday for lunch. So I needed to get things in order. I had hubby put the legs on another table so we could comfortably seat 10 people in close proximity. Dining room and family room are connected. Using a card table or two is out of the question. So to make it right, I moved stuff away from my sewing machine. Now we could fit 5 people at that table and 5 at table in dining room easily.
We've had 13 people at our house once for Thanksgiving. A few of us had to sit in living room, more uncomfortable eating wise. Not again! We couldn't enjoy our company that traveled to get here. We've acquired a used table and 4 chairs from our son when they were getting new table. Good idea!
So after our Sunday Bible Study group left, I went to task with an idea of putting the just legged table for my sewing table. Hubby measured and it was workable. I had to move the file cabinet to make room for it. It's sitting to the side of the table, against a wall. After pulling out some stuff from wall, including bags of fabric, mostly, I wondered to myself......maybe I should just pitch this stuff and I'd probably not miss it! I realize now I've accumulated too many things for projects I've not completed. Pie in the sky projects, I guess. When will I ever learn? Right now it's a mess but I'm going to work on it. I've just done too much cleaning/organizing lately than I care to. I will get over it. Just as soon as I eat my chocolate ice cream!!
