Mayday: 1. emergency, need assistance
Translations: The call mayday is the international standard emergency call. However, many local variations also exist.
(Like the one I'm using today!)
I've decided that May is going to be my Mayday/SOS month. As in....this ship (house) is going down if I don't do something about it fast. First you need to know that my mess is not seen by anyone but me unless you happen to open up a certain cabinet or drawer. Also you need to know I am not a hoarder, I just have more things than I need. I am an impulse buyer and a "Oh my God that is so cute" kinda shopper as in....I can't possible live without that item! There comes a point and time when enough is enough, when too much of a good thing is a hindrance to your life, and you start to feel claustrophobic.
That is where my troubles begin. I'm not hooked on phonics but I am definitely hooked on blogger. I have let it consume my days from sunrise to sunset. Yes you have read this before from me...blah, blah, blah! But I am determined to make a difference. I have a plan but I'm not sure if I will be able to stick to it but I am going to give it a try. You may not see me as often as I would like. (or maybe you won't even notice)
I normally write a post three times a week and those might be the only days I visit with people. I can't continue to read 40+ posts daily, comment on each one, answer all my emails and do my "slice of happy" visit on Pinterest! I had a dear friend who doesn't blog anymore say this to me: "Your spending your day reading other peoples lives and not living your own!"
I need to do some deep Spring cleaning. On top of the deep cleaning I need to clean out hutches, cabinets, closets, drawers, wooden blinds and wash windows that haven't been touched in forever since I started blogging! Okay the windows have been washed but not often. (Mark doesn't do windows) Also I need to get rid of the things we no longer need. Many things.....
But rest assured I will be back to normal as soon as I can. Life is going to get very busy in June. I have the long Vegas weekend, then I am going to spend about 17 days with my Dad and then 2 weeks after I get home we have our week in Mammoth Lakes. I just can't ignore my house anymore! This should make Debby a happy camper and I'm sure you want me happy. Wish we luck!
