No! I didn't get abducted by the aliens!
I have been really busy and not had a lot of time for everything I am trying to do. Exercise is down to 3 days a week which is really low for me. With these two jobs plus all of the projects that I tend to take on, my time is just very limited. Hopefully it will get better soon. I am trying to get the house organized and decluttered. I have been getting annoyed with all the clutter for a while and when I started my other blog I decided that decluttering was going to be one of my first goals. I have worked my magic in all but two rooms in the house so far and I must say that it is looking much better. I am looking forward to the start of my next project which is decorating for fall.
I have been working on organizing as part of the declutter project. I have made us a financial organizer and a housework organizer. This has already started to streamline the day to day stuff so that I have a little more wiggle room time wise. My next organizing projects are expanding my recipe organizer so that I can say goodbye to all of those unused recipe books and a household organizer with stuff like addresses, phone numbers, birthdays, anniversaries, gift ideas, coupons, meal plans, and so on. Whit and I always have the best intentions to send out cards and gifts for stuff like birthdays and anniversaries but neither of us has a great memory and neither of us has a current list of all the pertinent info. I am going to be working on getting all of that info together this month. I am really loving the feeling of being organized.
On another note, I am going to be deleting my other blog. I just don't have enough time for two jobs, two blogs, exercise, housework, etc. and something had to give. So I decided that 1) I love blogging and the friends I have made and 2) this blog was here first and is my first priority, so I am letting the other one go. However I am going to keep some of the posts. They will be transfered to this blog over the next couple of days. I am telling you all this right now because the last time I made a big change I confused a lot of people and I still have not gotten some of my readers back. So consider this fair warning!
As for the weight loss challenge, I didn't lose anything again this week due to lack of exercise and not the best eating. I am feeling more adjusted now and hopefully I will be back on an upswing real soon. I know I can do this!
I have a special post in the works that I am not going to tell you much about. However I will tell you to tune in monday when I will be posting said post. I hope you will all enjoy!
