We are down to the front room (which includes my hutch - yowzers!) and the kitchen as they were the two main staging areas for the carpet install. And we've hit a wall ... we are *so* close to being done and just sit here and stare at the mess. And the really bad part is, if I were actually to just do it, it would probably take no more than 2 hours total, probably closer to 1 and a few minutes. But here I sit staring. The goal, though, is to have it done today. I have bills I need to pay, so my hutch has to be done.
I want the kitchen table back in the kitchen, so that's getting done ...
Well ... after those two areas, I forgot we have to finish the outside. Our front porch looks disasterous because it was the clean-up area from the garage sale. Not much is on it, but what is on it is again just staring us in the face. We have probably in excess of 10 of those big plastic storage bins that are empty (YAY!!!) from everything we sold and then gave away at the garage sale. We have decluttered, I would estimate, in excess of 650 items (OMG to realize we had that much "stuff" to get rid of and not even notice it is gone is kind of embarrassing
), and we have a bit more to get rid of (mostly down to just trash now). So ... today is the day of reckonning (sp?) for us. It is time to face our nemesis and have our house decluttered and beautiful for probably the first time since we moved here 2 years ago.
The ironic part, though, is since my computer is in the front room, which is so cluttered right now, I don't want to spend time out here. I don't want to see the clutter that I need to deal with. So, I'm not spending nearly as much time on the computer and I'm actually *gasp* accomplishing other things like planning our hs'ing year, folding laundry, putting away cloth diapers when I take them out of the dryer ...
I guess the computer really does suck my time each day!
