OMGosh, it’s time to get organized. I’m tired of having this big wonderful home that is completely taken over by boxes and crap. I have a huge patio that I’ve wanted to do something with…like this or this or this (I mean, just picture it with a screened in patio feel):
And it was a total mess since me and my dad fixed up the kitchen…well, yesterday, while thinking to myself, how can I stop thinking about food SOOO dang much (I’m a total food-aholic and being on this restricted diet has me wanting like you have no idea) so I do what I always do, I googled what I could do to stop that process and I came across a list of things that can distract you…and guess what was on that dumb list…cleaning. Awa man! Well, now when I get home I realized that I don’t have anything to do since I don’t cook a ton anymore so I decided to make myself a list of things that I want to take care of before 12 noon on Saturday. The list is:
- Clean that dang patio
- Organize and make good use of the closets
- Clean that dang garage
- Make up a really good laundry area
- No more, I’m not wonder woman!
So, last night, I got home at like 5:30 or so…Dan and I had dinner and by 6:00 I was changed and working on making that patio better! Well, I tell you what, not only does it look SOOO much better (although now it needs some decorating) but I’m sure I burned off some calories doing it and it TOTALLY distracted me from even remembering that I was trying to avoid thinking about the F word (saaaaay!). Now, here is the crazy thing…My father comes home from work (he’s a painter) and while I’m sweeping up the patio he and Dan are moving a Ping Pong table out to the patio. He’s been working at Scott Stapp’s house (yes, the lead singer for Creed) and they were getting rid of an old ping pong table and asked if he wanted it…well, I had mentioned to my Dad that I would LOVE to get a ping pong table for my big ol’ patio and here we got one for free, and bonus, it was a famous guys…That’s, pretty cool! But really, how weird is it that the day I decide to make the dirty patio my bitch is the day my father brings home a big old ping pong table…maybe if I clean out the garage tomorrow he’ll bring home a car? You think?
