Back on the wagon...

Remember that list that I did a while back?

Well, I am still working on it! Honestly!

It is taking me longer than what I thought it would. That's nothing new! I'm a huge 'no concept of time' type of person and tend to be VERY optimistic with time. Which drives Callum batty!

Here is what I have done...

Running; I had started a running program...then I went home and 'pressed pause'.
Back on it now, just about to go after I finish this! I have found a couple of 5K's around here for this fall and still plan on doing one of them.

Organizing/de-cluttering; I actually did not stop doing this even though I did not update y'all. Before going back home Callum and I did the spare bedroom and laundry room. While home I did most of my parents kitchen...yes, they finally said goodbye to George Foreman! This past weekend we did our bedroom. It's about 95% done. You will not see before pictures of that room because it was THAT BAD!

By this weekend we will finish our bedroom and then on to the last room. A bedroom that has boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes of books.

Then we're again starting the process to get back to our home and native land and putting the house on the market.
So please pray, chant, talk to your angels, think good thoughts, etc... for us to get the hell out of here!

-Rainbow Fluorite and sterling silver bracelet.

-Taqua nut and sterling silver earrings.





- Freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystal and sterling silver earrings.

- Coral and sterling silver earrings.




It's just the start of it. There is much more that I need to get on. I also will be doing a craft fair at the end of October in Atlanta.

Still working on the going green! I am getting better at using less water and I finally believe that you do not need a different cleaner for every mess, room or surface. I am down to 2! I would be down to 1 but I like them both too much!

As for the exclamation points...you will notice that I have cut back hugely on them.

I will still use them! They are a need for me! I have just cut down, eg. before I would have put 5 ! in the last sentence, now I put just one!

I have put in to start volunteering at the American Cancer Society. Just waiting to hear back.


So, as you can see I am still working on my list. Just trying to get back into the swing of things since being back home. Making things even worse is that I've had a horrible headache since last Wednesday which has put me a little out of commission. It's probably the change in air pressure but secretly I think I'm allergic to west GA!


What have you been up too?
Have you worked on your list?

My list has been seriously neglected. I hope to get back on it soon. Good luck selling the house. Cheer me on for my 5K this weekend. I can't wait! I use a lot of exclamation points too :)

If I have a list, I've lost it. And that should tell you everything about the state of me and being organized.

Sounds like things are going well there!!! Doing much better then we are with the de-cluttering thing. We just spread it out since moving to a bigger place so it gives the illusion of less.

I will definitely do a variation on a rain dance, maybe throw in a chant or two for good measure, in the hopes to see you and the family, back in the Motherland ASAP!

Well, you’ve put me to shame. I’m not reading your blog anymore if you’re going to be an over-achiever.

I need a list, I have so much I want to do and I am currently too busy to get properly organized...I know if I got organized maybe I wouldn't be so busy, but whatever.

Very cool way to display the jewelry by the way! (exclamation points do have their place)
