Mission - Not Accomplished

If any one had been at my house today, it would not have been hard for them to figure out why I did not get much accomplished. I started the day determined to work on the "clean out mission" I started long time ago - you are probably already saying "yeah - right".
Step #1: Clean out and organize living room closet . Now let me explain - This is a major project here !! This closet serves as a coat closet, storage for everything from gift wrapping supplies to painting supplies, who knows what those odd cords/controls go to, tools such as power drill, leaf blower (don't ask), 2 step stools, shredder, vacuum cleaner, extra large tray, table leaf, etc. etc. Not to mention a bag of leftover wallpaper from the previous owners - Now that is scarey as I can't wait to get off what was put on the walls. Well - You get the picture.
Did I finish - NO! Why? I ran across a box of movies (old VHS) and I had to stop, go thru them to determine if I should keep. Which reminded me that I had some CD's I wanted to go thru. The problems with that decision - they were in a drawer "upstairs". So.....Upstairs I go...distracted from the "closet clean out". Ran across some Christmas music CD's I have had for some time. It is that time of the year - gotta check them out - right???? Then....Ran across a DVD of pictures taken of my family reunions starting in the 70's ........Wow! I did not have wrinkles back then!!!

My mission for the day ? Not accomplished !
Need I say more...............................

Just realized I did not have a picture for this post....Sorry - To busy looking at old pictures and reminiscing about the days gone by (can't believe I use to wear a 2 piece bathing suit).

Have a great weekend !

I wish I could relax and just sit back and watch old movies. I'm too driven to get things done! Not always a good thing, my friend!

Too fuuny - I started to decorate tonight and decided to pop in a Christmas movie. The one I wanted was on vhs and we only have a dvd now. I realized that we have an entire drawer full of vhs.

Guess we all have these things.

Enjoy the season!

Glenda, I can't tell you how many times I've begun a "clean-out," only to be distracted by something else, resulting in a totally non-productive day! It is frustrating, to say the least.

Are you sure we are not sisters :) This brought a smile to my face ... sounds just like me!

Hi Glenda, you are just too funny. I can see you getting distracted, I would have too, it's always fun to reflect, takes us to happier times... good luck on throwing out the previous owners wallpaper. :-))
hugs ~lynne~

I have to giggle at this post....I was in the process of cleaning out my treasure stash (projects to work on) in the barn and came across a couple of boxes, carried them into the house and the barn is still waiting to be cleaned and put in order 3 days later ;)

I have to be careful, if I dig too deep. I end up spendin' the day reminiscin'. Heeeheheh!

God bless ya sweetie and have a magnificent weekend!!! :o)

I get caught up with the same things. I start one project, and get distracted with something else. It's happening right now...should be getting ready to go out. I hear ya with the two piece bathing suit thing. I can't even remember how many years ago that was:-)

Glenda this is such a fun post. Reminds me of me.LOL

We are going to be distracted this evening, about 7pm. NBC is showing It's a Wonderful Life. We have that movie around here someplace. If I wasn't so distracted I might find it.;-)

So funny, Glenda! You made me smile (especially with the leaf blower :-O)
Hope you manage to accomplish your mission someday!

Sue said...

You are so funny. That must be some closet with all that stuff in it. The organizer that I tend to be says...throw away that wallpaper right now! One thing done. You aren't going to use it for anything! I have this image of you wandering from place to place in my head...

Sounds just like me Glenda...But it's all a process and that process seems to take 5 times longer than expected *winks* Vanna
