Confessions of a Messy Housekeeper

It will come as no surprise to those that know me that I am the crappiest housekeeper ever. EVER. So when it comes to "Corners of my Home" photos, they're more than likely to be pretty messy. On days like this I feel like I have nothing important to say, but yet can't just flash that photo of some tidy little spot because there just aren't that many.
I have too much stuff.

I've also not been too motivated lately. I don' t know what's up with that. I did finish one sewing project, but can't reveal that because its the store mystery quilt. Next week I think, that's when the last clue goes out. I love how mine turned out.
In the meantime, I made a list and actually did some stuff on it yesterday. Not to get carried away, it was only 1 1/2 things but still, it was something. Today's a work day, so I'll be gone and unable to make progress on that list till later. I'll need to kick it into high gear though, Frankie's birthday is Sunday and The Mom's are coming for dinner.
My child will be 19 on Sunday. Wow. I can hardly believe it.
So my little chickadees, I guess I should go get ready for work. How sad is it that I'm so lazy I worry that I can't be to my job on time, at 10am?

No "corners"? That's ok... your house will just be a mystery. Life's too short for the rules of others! You liberate me Pam!!!!

PS... work... 10am... way too early for me!!!!!!

When we come down to the bay area this next summer, I am going to help you organize. Think about what is most important to you to have organized like pantry, craft room, closets, kitchen? And I'll be happy to help you out. And regarding my post and your comments, I think Logan has been exceptionally dishy lately. Oh, I could take him home and keep him entertained for hours. What a sweetheart, burning a hotel down and all. I'm so glad we have VM in common.

I don't know what you're talking about! In that very photo I can see empty spaces for 2 additional spools of thread.

I'll meet your "messy housekeeping" and raise you 10!!! LOL It's a never-ending battle for me. The girls don't help matters any either.

Hope you have a great day!

I am with you on being the crappiest housekeeper. I never look in the corners of my house becasue I am scared at what will jump out at me.

I want meatloaf, with pasta, and steamed veggies. And I want a chocolate fudge cake. And a pony.

I tell my friends to call before they come over---just so I can pick up the "big" chunks.

That isn't a messy corner. That's a kickass corner. Love the little circle rug thinga ma jig. And I'm back. My hiatus was an entire week and a day. I forgot that blogging GAVE me sanity and the other things in my life TAKE IT AWAY instead of vice versa.

Who did your lovely masthead? Email me will ya? tsvobo1526@comcast.net!

I avoid submitting to "corners" because I can't find a corner that I wouldn't have to over haul! :o)
I would die a thousand deaths if someone came over unannounced.
Sad sad, but I so understand.
And happy birthday to your little/grown up girl, you did a great job!

If that's your messy corner you have nothing to worry about. It looks like such a creative miscellany!
