The Hot Mess Life

February 25, 2011

Spring Fever?

It's almost March and I thought Spring was on it's way.  We have had 50's here in the Midwest, until yesterday.  Rain, sleet and snow, Oh My!

I had about a 1/2 inch of slushy ice/snow on my car when I left work today and ended up getting about 3 inches at my house when it was all said and done.  FYI ice under snow does not make for good times.

Don't get me wrong, I love winter, but I think my body and mind are ready for spring.  Mostly because I have been having the urge to organize and clean like a mad woman.

Here are a few of the things I have done and are planning to do.

I have rearranged my living room, and now all that is missing is a gorgeous rug.  I'm thinking something along these lines.

I reorganized my kitchen and am thinking about painting it. The fun part is picking out a new color! Then off to the guest room.  Which quite frankly has turned into the "I don't know what to do with all this extra stuff (junk), so I will put it in this room, room." Oh Lordy it is time to purge!

I am also wanting to create some "fabric art", like this:

I am also still needing to organize my closet, I have cleaned and weeded out clothes/purses/shoes I don't wear or wonder how I ever thought were cute.  I am in love with this closet and hope that I can install something similar soon!

 These past few weeks at work have been, well, stressful.  Unfortunately due to my own fault, so this is going to be a great outlet for me to get my brain and sanity back on track.

Now, I have it in my head that all this is going down this weekend, we shall see how far I get.  Although if I do complete my "to do" list, I will award myself with this:
Awesome isn't it? Made it here - www.says-it.com.

  12. I am your newest follower from the Weekend Blog Hop! I have been blogging a little over a month and like you I started it to be able to work all my frustrations out and tell humorous stories of how dumb I can be sometimes and then stuff that is really hilarious. I am also trying to qualify as a reviewer for products but I have to have more followers. Once I reach that point I will also be able to offer giveaways from these sponsors. I clicked on your GFC and am followin you and would really be very grateful if you could follow me back. I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend!
