I definitely feel your pain. But who decides what to get rid of? When we finish with the remodeling, we will make some changes. I have some nice furniture in storage, plus lots of pots and pans that I never even unpacked from the move 17 years ago. It will be like Christmas to have a new kitchen/den and to get more of my things in here!

OMG, are we twins that were separated at birth?

Clutter is what happens when you enjoy good books, music, and movies. The libraries have to go somewhere! Knickknacks don't have much of a chance in our house, because our shelves are all used for storage, not decoration.

Okay, maybe we were triplets separated at birth! When I am working on scrapbooking it gets messy looking, although there is a method to my madness. When the remodeling is completed, I will have a dedicated area in the garage with LOTS of space so I don't have to clear it away all the time. We have a wood stove out there, and Hubby insulated the heck out of it when he built it. I am so anxious to get my scrapping space and get lots of stuff done.

On another note, Hubby told me I have to figure out which yarn and crocheting stuff I need out for the winter since we will be putting more stuff in the garage soon and won't be able to go digging around once the work starts in earnest on the house. I will do that some time this weekend.

I posted a quote on my Facebook page that is so appropriate and related to our stopping at Michaels on the way to Redding Thursday afternoon: Going shopping with your husband is like going hunting with the game warden! LOL!

Thanks, Festive. We had a great dinner. I had the seafood combination with clam chowder, fried shrimp, two pieces of fish, shrimp scampi, wonderful veggies (squash and zucchini), baked potato, garlic bread, and iced tea. There was no way I could eat it all, so half of it came home! My meal was only $13.99! What a deal!

Hubby and I love cats, so I think he would get a kick out of your cat!

Have you decided which ornament you are going to give to your partner? I still have some "looking" to do. I think I will know the perfect one when I see it, LOL!

Sounds like you all a wonderful time, glad to hear it.



Funny you mentioned this. I started on my cross trainer a couple days ago. I have not been on it for ages. I really want to increase my energy levels and tone up. We can be bike buddies, keep each other motivated lol!



You sure are making your way through your gift list!



Praying that your shots make a difference for you and you feel a lot better soon.



Hope you had a good evening out. The food sounds delicious, what did you end up having?

I am so excited about the exchange too, it's my first year doing it!

I will have to ask my mum or brother if they have any photos of our kitten riding on the tortoise's back. LOL

Good morning, MMC! It is a little chilly here in the house with the whole house fan on, but that's what works to keep down the use of air conditioning. It is supposed to be hot today, tomorrow and into next week. UGH! Made, I feel your pain regarding temps! I have some sorting to do and need to finish packing up my stuff in the den. I will try to pop on every once in a while! TTYL
