Well yesterday I neither cleaned any more or did any sewing. Well I did move the stuff off the washer so I could wash a couple loads but since I just set the basket down on the floor I can't really call that cleaning, can I? LOL! Evidently I was sicker that I thought and ended up sleeping most of the day. But I do feel soooooo much better today so I'll take Vicky's advice tonight and clear the stuff from in front of the closet and stash cabinets. It's a start.

I had to laugh at Leslie's I-spy comment. You have a good eye but you either missed the 6 pack of beer or were too polite to mention it. LOL!!! It will go out this weekend. It's after all over 3 years old - don't ask! but the other things you mentioned have to stay. The cat litter bucket holds strips and strings for Heartstrings blocks and the fryer box holds fabric waiting to be folded and put away.

And the treadmill is a symbol of what was and hopefully will be again. I love to walk but it's not safe to walk the roads out here where I live. No sidewalks and fast moving traffic not to mention the dogs running loose all over the place. so I used to do 3 miles a day on my treadmill. That coupled with the low-carb diet I was following enabled me to lose almost 50 lbs. Then I was knocked for a loop by the statin drugs I was taking and ended up with major muscle weakness in my left leg. Bad enough that I can barely walk around the grocery store or Wal-Mart without my leg trembling badly and trying to give out on me. Thus started the upward spiral of my weight. The muscle tremors are not nearly as bad but the excess weight is still making it difficult to get the exercise I need so I'm doing as much as I can and trying to push myself to do more and more each week. And one day I'll be able to use that treadmill again. Maybe not 3 miles a day but I'll be happy with just 1/4 mile for now. That is once I get cleared out around it so I can give it a try again.

I decided a long time ago that it didn't matter what my "mess" looked like. It is MY sewing room, it's MY house and if I can get more done with it being cluttered than be it that way. Mine is sometimes messy and sometimes organized--well, not very often. So what...it's your creative space and if it works for you then it's fine with me.
My family knows that they'll have clean underwear and food in the fridge, but I'll be spending my spare time sewing!

Kudos to you for showing your space. When I get my new one built, I'll show it THEN..only then!

Enjoy this warm weather. 80ยบ here today in western Okieland.

I hope you are feeling better now. I live in a quasi-rural area with no curb and gutter or sidewalks and it is hard to walk without getting hit by a car (that is going faster than the speed limit, but don't get me started).

I hope you're feeling better soon. Ear infections are no fun. I'll be gentle about your room and not say anything except to say that doing 30 minutes a day is a great way to get it done.

as you know, that mess did not happen overnight-so 30 minutes a day is a good baby step method to start getting it the way that will make you happy! good luck with kicking your ear infection and feeling better again!
