I have to clean the office

Oh, I HATE housekeeping. The office has turned into this huge junk room and really, I could probably toss everything in the rubbish bin and not miss any of it. however, pack rat that I am, I have to dig thru every bit of it, file it and tend to it.

I do have bits of quiting fabric that my schzioprenic self bought and I am not a quilter. I don't LIKE quilting. So all of those bits? Marji has a box of bits in her future.

I have a ton of things that really just needs to be tossed; then a ton of things that need to be files and sent over to the office. Business stuff. Tax stuff. Crazy making stuff.

I just want to get my office back in order so that I can sew in there. I want to ziplock my yarn and laces on the shelves so that the mice can;t get to them. We have mice problems in the winter...every winter...unless I make sure that everything is vermin tight, the poison is out, the traps are set and every hole is stuffed with steel wool. It is a never ending battle. So far, I'm winning.

Dragged the fridge out today and cleaned under it. Ick. I have the washer and dryer to drag out this week and expect the same kind of ick. It takes the better part of an entire afternoon....hoovering the loose dust and then spraying the ick down, wiping it up, spraying the ick and wiping it up. If the house didn;t get cleaned the whole place would look like that.

I have to get all of the baseboards washed down, too. Nothing to it, if you don;t mind crawling around on your hands and knees for about 4,000 lineal feet, dragging a bucket behind you.

I am almost finished with Julie's baby sweater. I have the back ond one sleeve to do. I am always much slower than I think I am, though. But you know what I say....for me, knitting is all about the Zen. I am not in a race with anyone. Good thing, since I would never win!

Well, all that will keep you out of trouble! (For a few minutes anyway!) When you are finished, come on up and help me! I thought I would be ready to move this week but I am a long way off. I blame it on the rain that keeps me depressed. . . sigh

You going to take a photo of that baby sweater and put it on your blog? I would enjoy seeing it.

Keep on bloggin' Lovin' reading it again!
