Objects, doors, windows, cubicles, glass containers on the floor are out to end me! I guess being a klutz is just an added bonus to being chronically ill. I can blink, and a new bruise will appear on my legs or arms. I’m often asking myself “when did I do that?” I know we all have a moments…but it seems to be blown out of proportion when you are ill.
Here are four things to keep you safe.
1 – Turn on the damn nitelight – this would have probably have saved my foot for crashing into a glass jar I left on the floor after a recent cleaning extravaganza
2 – When in doubt, call family or friends – “Hi, don’t panic, I’m bleeding!”
3 – Meditate – On the fact you’re the dumba$$ who left the glass jar on the floor in the first place.
4 – Purchase an overabundance of first aid supplies – Yassssss! I’ve got this one covered!
***when in doubt, laugh***
I am still plodding along on my rather slow adaptation of Marie Kondo’s book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. This past month I took seven printer paper sized boxes to the thrift store for the Books portion of my journey.
WAIT? But, boosks! Yes, I know! But, when I look at it…just how many books on Yorkshire Terriers does one need? I had five…d’oh!
I am now getting to the point that I can see just how refreshing it is to add clear space and remove the dust. I am very pleased with the results of this past months goal. Unto the Paper portion of the purge!!
I have begun to believe that my blog has become stale, predictable and maybe for a few, not relatable. I haven’t felt the excitement to write. Ideas (or aka The Muse) seems to be taking a smoke break. It’s my job to inspire, reach your core and (if successful) make you laugh. Am I doing that with my money inspired posts?
Going through the Kon Mari Method recently has really “sparked” a need to purge all the areas of my life. This month, I was going to write about my Spending Freeze but I just wasn’t in the mood to go through it again. I mean, I have no problem re-hashing ideas – improve upon them, switch things up a bit. Realistically, this blog is not a frugal, money saving fest for the masses. It’s about a petite, quirky redhead who struggles to keep up with all the hares of the world while living a turtle pace life. (run on sentence much?).
I have already confessed to you in the blog about my addiction to money (yes, there is a program for that) so I have decided that this is my last in Money Monday posts. It’s time to turn over a new leaf, umm, turn a page, ahhhh hell – just move on!
Do not hesitate in the moving forward business – opportunities will pass your a$$ up!
I’ve lost site on my One Little Word for 2017. Focus. I am beginning to even wonder of that is a possibility as I can’t even remember if I took my medications in the morning. I wrote about being hyper vigilant when it come to my weight…weighing in with extra pounds is not being hyper vigilant in any capacity.
May it should be more Laser Focused.
I need a new game plan! (and a planner)
I drank the kool-aid friends. I finally caught up with the KonMari craze that swept the nation about three years ago. If you have been hiding under your clutter and don’t know what I’m talking about – well, let me ‘esplain,
Marie Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up hit book shelves in 2014. Heck, she even has an app for that. The book is described (per her website) as a “best selling guide to decluttering your home.” I’m in.
Emphasis though is on tidying up – in categories. The first being Clothing, then Books, followed by Paper, then Komono (miscellaneous areas like the kitchen pantry) and lastly, sentimental items. Marie recommends to gather all similar belongings – dump it ALL on the floor and start purging.
Marie also recommends going through the categories in a rather rapid pace. Umm, yea, that is just not going to happen for me. I adapted her process by spending no more than an hour of my weekend on an item in a category. For instance, under Clothing there are tops; bottoms; dresses; outerwear; socks; so forth. And I didn’t go the floor thing, I was worried I would not be able to get back up.
I had purged a majority of my clothing the previous year using an approach of having 44 items in my closet so working on the clothing was not a long process. I did, however, have an over abundance of socks.
In July I am tackling books. They are everywhere, bookcases, floor, dresser, side table…oy! This could prove to be interesting.
I went of blogcation and forgot to tell you! D’oh.
No worries, I am back ready to show you new content and all sorts of fun stuff. This month, I will be participating in One Book July, bringing you along for the ride of course. Each Sunday of July I will have a post plus a video for what I am using for the challenge. So exciting.
Also, look for my very first news letter to hit your inboxes come the middle of August! We are growing, one baby step at a time folks!
Now, grab some sweet tea and enjoy your Summer
