It's Tackle it Tuesday, and today I don't have the energy to do anything more than something small.
I quit Diet Pepsi for the 42nd time yesterday, and I haven't had one all day. You really can't expect much out of me right now.
But I thought I could do a drawer.
This mess is a drawer in our dining room where we keep our napkins and placemats and other stuff for the table.
I thought it wouldn't be a big deal to clean it.
I was wrong.
I emptied it, and there were three knives I've been looking for for ages. And a card game. And lots and lots of dried food particles. I had to go down to the basement and get out our central vac! Then I had to put a ton of napkins in the wash. Ugh. I can't believe I was using those.
Anyway, I did clean it. Here's the after:
As you can see, the placemats and napkins are now neat and actually fit. The purple books are little "grace" books with thirty-one graces you can sing. They're to tunes of familiar hymns, but the words are rewritten to have to do with food. They're awesome. One for each day of the month.
There's also the Bible and poetry book that we read from every night. Now everything is easy to get to, and we won't be embarrassed when company comes. I wonder how long that will last?
The point, my friends, is this: even if you only have 5 minutes, you an always tackle something! Just keep the vacuum nearby!
