If you hear yelling,

I'm cleaning out my sewing room to make it back into a guest room.

And I'm annoyed.

Where did all this crap come from? Seriously . . . I'm not going on wild spending sprees, we haven't had a gifting holiday since Christmas. Surely I didn't bring that much from my mother's house . . . did I?

Best friend B is coming on Friday. I can't even pull out the pull-out couch for all the crap. I did take a load of dry cleaning in to the cleaners this morning. Before you applaud, it's been sitting in there since April. I never had time to get it in by 9 so it could be out by 5. I have a bit of room for improvement in that regard.

Sooooo unless I want her to sleep in the camper, which, although it would be fine and dandy in any other location than the driveway, would be Unsouthern of me, I got to get to getting.

HTB said I can not stack all my craft stuff in the office like we did last time, since we actually use that room. I work from there three days a week from now and I'd hate to miss a deadline because I mashed myself under a pile o' magazines. Or the dog; when that tail gets thumping, he makes no guarantees.

I guess I can stick it in the garage. For now. Or put it in the closet and tell B to not open the door. At all.

Or I could run screaming from the house.

Or I could watch Hoarders, which functions as both a wake up call and a reminder that it's not so bad.

But I'll probably pick it up one piece at a time, like always. And it will be OK.

If nothing else, a year of UFOs would reduce the clutter . . .

My craft room .. I know is worse than yours. I watch Hoarders because it makes me feel like I don't have a craft overload problem!!! lol Happy Cleaning! Have a great time with BF.

Oh, I hear you ... my craft room-to-be is still under all the debris that washed into my house upon the settling of my mother-in-law's estate ... papers, furniture, books, etc. I am determined to take care of it before the year is over.

I love to read your clutter posts. Misery loves company.

I watch Hoarders and I find myself throwing things out. I ask myself do I REALLY need 4 pairs of scissors? Yep, it's a wake up call all right.

I'm too afraid to watch Hoarders...I'm afraid I'll find that I have the same tendencies. I look at my piles here...and then my piles of stuff there...and then over there....oh my!!!!

Vicky said...

Same here, my craft room is a combined computer, junk and craft room.. It is so messy that me and the other half are terrified of trying to clean it out, it would probably take about 6 months LOL

Donna said...

Are we all watching Hoarders in order to not feel so bad about our own particular problems? LOL

I think you could benefit from an experienced 'organizer' ;o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
