Riding Around in Circles

My life this week, as spoken through Bogie:

I’ve been riding around in circles all week.

Emptying one closet here, cleaning one drawer there, creating a list over here, making a mess over there. Jan 009

Going round and round and round. In circles.Jan 024 

Thinking, “Oh man, I’ve got to get this done too, I guess I’ll go back over there.”Jan 017

It’s been tough and frustrating and there is a mess everywhere. Our house looks like a disaster zone. Again.  Jan 018

Organized disaster.

Sort of.Jan 019

Makes me feel like this!Jan 013

But I’m going to keep going.

Trudging through the trenches of closets, dressers, drawers and cabinets.

Pushing just a little bit. Not too too much.

Jan 026

There’s a prize at the end of the tunnel.

Sunshine someday soon. Jan 030 

For today we are going to leave the piles of junk out and enjoy our day

because

today is Mr. Dunbar’s Birthday.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

And who wanted to see this silly grin?

That bike is totally cool! I feel the same way. I am under pressure to get things ready to move, and I want to organize at the same time. Then my daughter has been at home sick for two days and all I want to do is lay on the couch with her! Help!

I feel exactly the same way! Funny how organizing makes *such* a big mess. I'm looking forward to the end product, too!

Happy Sunday.
