Starting from Scratch – Laundry

In a modification of what my Carrie told me to do to boot out of Survival Mode, I started with a project I could see.

Mount Laundry.
Clean Pile

One load at a time – in the washer, in the dryer, put away.


(I have to do it this way, because if I get everything clean before I get anything put away, then I get tired and it all lands on the floor, becoming dirty and messy and then I’m back where I started.)

(Also, at this stage, my definition of “put away” is pretty loose. On a shelf or on a hanger with 15 other things = “put away” – This is not a time to get bogged down in details, peeps.)

My shoes? Totally in a pile in the closet, but they are IN THE CLOSET! #MoralVictory!

Next up is the bedding.

How about you? What’s your laundry situation looking like today?

Bedroom Redecorated

It began with a basic bedroom.


It morphed into a bedroom with a paint job (Sherwin Williams paint, some patience with some paint tape, and learning that measuring for stripes after a vicodin and while pissed at the best friend/not the boyfriend isn’t always a first try success.) Window coverings from JCPenney and are on every window in the house.


It further morphed into me putting down the entire hardwood floor with a little assistance from my 4 year old partner in crime.


And I will now work on cleaning my closet while singing I am Woman Hear me ROAR.
