Busy Busy

I'm usually better about updating the blog, but I've just been really busy the past few weeks. I've been doing some substitute teaching here and there, as well as working on some projects for other people. That wasn't necessarily the best thing for me to do, seeing as I barely manage to get my own projects done! I've also started back up with the women's bible study at my church after being away from it for a year-and-a-half.

Add to all that the fact that I'm attempting to stay off the computer a bit more. I've realized that I read a lot online, but I'm not reading books as often or as quickly as I used to. I'm working to remedy that.

And then there's this:

My desk is Command Central around here. I pay the bills here, work on the computer here, do most of my craft projects here, and prefer to do my bible study here. But as you can see, the state of my desk hasn't exactly been conducive to any of that. I've been tackling that mess this week. See that stack of papers on top of the pink filing cabinet to the right? I finally filed all that and discovered that I hadn't filed anything since May. Pretty ridiculous since the filing cabinet is right there.

All this to say that I'm attempting to discipline myself more and get my household into proper working order. I hope to be back to regular posting sooner rather than later.

I know what you mean. I hardly get time to do all the things I want to do. And the dear old blog is the one getting the cut most of the time.

I love organizing too. Cleaning-not so much

My goodness, are those Snoopy dolls in the background? I was introduced to Snoopy in college. Adorable.

I love organizing...but I've found that my version of it tends to create more a mess! If nothing else, organizing books by genre, or movies by alphabetical order, is great way to justify why there are dirty dishes in the sink!

Getting your priorities straight is the FIRST thing necessary in disciplining your life. Sounds like you have it right...Bible study--then blog. Sometimes I can really get that backwards! Kudos to you!
