Oh what a day! I had one of those slow motion moments when I realized I'd left my keys in my car as the door slowly swung shut and I belatedly tried to grab the door before it shut....too late. Kudos to the guy at Talize who tried to climb through my open trunk to reach a back door lock but to no avail as the back seat was loaded with the stuff I was dropping off. Many thanks to Michael who borrowed a friend's car to bring me his set of keys. Two doses of Tylenol later and my head is still throbbing albeit not as badly as before.
Too much going on in my head. The new semester starts Monday and I have some work to do to get ready. We had a staff meeting this morning and the teachers all felt under attack by the administration as they complained about a number of things they felt teachers were doing wrong. It wasn't pleasant - teachers are tired right now after exams and marking and report cards and felt bullied - they fought back with reasonable arguments and the stressed out atmosphere brought on the headache.
During the meeting I was receiving texts from Kazi - her now ex-boyfriend (FOR THE SECOND TIME!!) has decided he's "just not that into her" and of course she's beside herself with grief and didn't want to be home alone. So I packed up my school books and headed home first stopping at Talize to drop off all my stuff from the room cleaning I did yesterday. Then the OOPS slo-mo moment! Michael to the rescue - what a great guy!
As I can't concentrate on school work right now I am going to post the AFTER PHOTOS from yesterday's cleaning, de-cluttering and organizing project. There are still a couple of areas in our guest/TV/cat/dressing room that I want to attend to - my two jewelry boxes and organizing my summer shoes in "under the bed" bins but otherwise the room looks fantastic - Michael couldn't believe the difference in my closet!! It is a big relief to get that scary closet finally under control.
What has left the room and is now residing at Talize: a huge pile of clothes on the floor in addition to two bags full; 2 bags of hangers, a bag of shoes (I miss them already!); a box of stuff, and a bag of garbage. Woo hoo! I think if you click on the pictures they get bigger.
I'm so relieved this job is done! I still have an achey lower back and my neck hurts too so no de-cluttering projects for this weekend - just school work instead!
How are YOUR projects coming along?
