I have one question...Have you felt it?!?!?!?! You know what I'm talkin' about?!?!?!?! I'm talking about the fever, man! The cleaning/organizing fever! Oh yeah.
Well, I've felt it. And just about everyone that I have talked to has felt it. Okay, maybe just a couple of people have felt the fever. The problem with me is that my fever won't go away. But that's a personal problem. But I'm telling you, the fever is good. Embrace the fee-vah!
This week is going to be a little hectic. I have many things to do and a short time to do them. Our family will be traveling down south to the vast dessert in Arizona this weekend, to witness the baptism of our nephew. Sooooo, I better get movin'!
Wednesday I will be attempting to conquer a battle that has plagued me from the moment we have moved into our house. 7 years ago! My mud room/laundry room closet. I hate this closet! Every time I open the door to retrieve a broom, my iron, or a bucket, I shudder. I have re-arranged this stupid closet so many times... you don't even know, people! (*just a little note for the husbands out there... DO NOT construct the closets without consulting your wives first! )
*Que creepy Physco music...reek, reek, reek, reek!
See this... Un-used space! That's alot of space that I can use and darn-it I will!
I have asked my husband numerous times to build some cubbies and shelves, but for some reason my feminine ways have not persuaded him in doing so. I'm beginning to question my "feminine ways". In fact, I even asked him to grant my wish for last Mother's Day. Ahem. Click here to see the proof, since he just doesn't seem to recall me asking him for this.
So, I've decided to take the matter in to my own hands. This could be scary. I hope to show the "after" pictures with pride, once I'm done. Wish me luck.
Thursday I will be making another trip to the DI. Because I have that much crap and it just so happens, our ward is going to be having a clothing/toy swap that night at the church. Problem solved.
Along with the cleaning/organizing bug, I have the food storage/emergency preparednesses bug. I will be finishing my Emergency binder this week that will include copies of evacuation plans, insurance info, personal documents (ss cards, birth certif. and stuff), emergency phone numbers, bank account numbers, id's and passwords, and many more tid bits of vital info.
Every month I have set aside a certain amount of money, that I have budgeted, to buy something for our food storage. I only buy the certain item/s if they are on sale. So today I will be checking out the sales fliers and seeing what I desire to purchase in massive amounts. Well, as much as I have budgeted for. I do this near the end of every month, because that is when we seem to have some extra money. You can also do this any time of the month that works best for you. And let me tell ya, each time I replenish my food storage, I feel relief. I have found some awesome web sites about food storage and I have found one that will actually e-mail you about every two weeks to tell you every step of what you need to do to accomplish a year supply food storage and emergency preparedness plan. It's so lovely!
So go on my lovelies! Go! Go organize a closet, purge some crap and donate it to DI or Salvation Army or some other place, and work on an emergency binder and food storage for your family. It will do your family good!
Oh, and here's another beautiful site from when I cleaned behind my washer and dryer the other week. Items found: 1 fire detector, 1 set of pajama bottoms, 1 penny, 1 dime, 1 sock, 2 screws, and a whole lot of ick.
Oh. My. Gosh.
