I need a schedule...

I am really thinking that I need to get myself on some kind of daily schedule. There just never seems to be anything getting done around here. I send 4-5 afternoons/early evenings running to & from the martial arts school. The kids are back in school so I have plenty of time during the day to get everything done and still spend lots of time on the computer.

I use to be so good at getting everything done without feeling stressed but over the last several years that has so gone by the wayside. I miss the days of having floors so clean you could eat off of and toilets you could drink out of. I need to get our home more organized and get myself back to organized. What I need is organization, more exercise, more reading, more crafting & less computer.

This is something that I have to start working on and see what I can come up with.


  1. Oh honey! I hear you! I am in a constant state of trying to be organized. I would be just fine if everyone else could remember where to put things!!;)

  2. Good Luck Suzanne! I hear you I definitely need some organization! Hopefully I'll find it once the boys go back to school! Hugs!

  3. The computer is a big time suck, but I have a hard time pulling myself away from it when I'm at home. I feel your pain.

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
