I usually pride myself as being a somewhat organized person, with the major exception of my office. I don't file things away. NEVER. Don't ask me why. Well maybe it's jut not limited to the office. I have issues in other areas of the house too. Laundry is done and folded, just usually not put in drawers. HEY you haul it up two flights of stairs!!! And maybe... well sometimes I don't clean out the fridge every week like I probably should. There I've said it; I'm not perfect!!! Then again, I'm sure you weren't under the illusion I was anyways ;) And if you are orchestrating that you are... you're just fibbing!
Me and my husband are procrastinators too. We have a Little Tykes play center that is meant for smaller children that we've been meaning to list online - for over a year now. Now that we have a partially assembled new one in the backyard, probably high time we did something about it. We also have that stove that quit working a few months back that was in my office until last night. We finally listed them online. The stove free to go to whoever will take it off our hands (or we're taking it to the dump); the play center we're holding out for a good price. Last night we got calls for both. The play center is supposed to be picked up tonight. I'm not sure what's going on with the stove. Either way, I'm rid of both of them soon I hope.
So last night we hauled the stove into the garage as well as the pieces for the play structure. The only thing left to find are the swings, the main bolt and the instructions with the tie downs. The bolt... LOL you'd think we'd put that somewhere we could find it. We looked everywhere - it was driving us nuts looking for it. Finally I had an epiphany and went to the laundry room and low and behold, it was in this small plastic container. I remember seeing it from painting a few months back. I had no clue what it was, until I saw the similar piece on the new structure. The swings: I find ONE of the two swings, plus we decided to give away one of the baby swings as well. But where is the other swing? It's never even been used (the original swings). You'd think they'd be together but apparently not! We are still searching for it. Hopefully it's in the garage with the instructions for assembly and the tie downs. Who knows... but this gives you an idea that we aren't really as organized as I thought. Now our real problem is when we move (which is quite often) we never FULLY unpack everything. I know, I know - odd. But there are just boxes by the end of the move that we never get to. We figure if we haven't missed it for 2 years, we don't really need it anyways. That kinda backfired on us this time. Where or where is that swing?
On other news, my dad is being released from the hospital. They didn't do the surgery (which is good) because the medication got his eye pressure down. The CAT scan didn't show any obvious damage, but that doesn't rule out possible problems. At this point we'll take what we can get. He still has a hard time seeing anything out of the one eye, and still has floaters in the other. I guess only time will tell. He's already talking about going back to work, and coming out the first week of June to help build our deck. Honestly... you could cut off both his arms and he'd try to hammer with his mouth. Why do men insist on never taking the proper time to recover?
Today is a busy one: I have therapists for Kierra, I have to buy some clematis plants for the lattice work, get some more work done in the backyard, and it's soccer tonight!! Can I get a woot woot? Plus it's hubby's birthday tomorrow. I have to buy him a present! Not to mention a new memory stick for the new camera that wouldn't take my old memory stick. Catch ya on the flip side!
