X-Factor Top 7 Performances

Josh- He rocked the house but I was watching the dancers more than him.

Astro- Did a great performance!

Drew- I was confused with the chair but vocals right on!

Rachel- Not her best but good- loved her hair!

Marcus- He did an awesome sexy performance but his signing was just a bit up and down.

Chris- Well he made it his own!

Melanie- BEST PERFORMANCE of the night!

Who will go home....no idea but Chris and Drew might be the ones on the bottom.  But you never know because these are MY OPINION'S only LOL!  I don't want Chris to go but I think he will be just fine- there is a record deal out there for him!

Day 4- Linen Closet (Completed)

Okay folding sheets is on my Top Ten Household Chores I Don't LIKE!  So my linen closet was so messy and disorganized. 



Wonder why my camera takes such different color pics. 

Anyway, I took out everything out then wiped down shelves (made a mental note I need to get shelf liners).  I folded the sheets nice and placed all my sheets together, the kids sheets on another shelf, then I was able to put my sewing machine/sewing box in there too! I also have my hair styling tools (I use them like 2-3x a year so no point in having them in bathroom, lol). 

Day 3- Tupperware Cupboard (Completed)

What I threw away!

Now that felt GREAT!  Many mornings I've gone through that scary cupboard looking for containers and finding no lids or finding lids but no containers!  I threw away every lid that didn't fit something- wow I had a lot too!  I put all lids in a cereal box. Also found my FAVORITE CD that I thought I lost.  Just amazing what 20 minutes will do!  I feel horrible I even let it get that bad.

Day 3 DONE!

Day 2 - Computer Desk (21 Day Organizing)

This one isn't too bad since I did it last week.  But there are some things that could be done.  I got a bag of garbage and plus found a couple items I was looking for the other day!


This is feeling good getting some junk out of my way! 

Meet Me On Monday

Came across this last night at http://nevergrowingold.blogspot.com/   I'm going to give it shot- why not!  Here are the questions she gave us  to answer:

1. I really need to clean my _________?

2. What food makes you think of Christmas?
3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
4. What was your first paying job?
5. Have you read the Twilight series?
My Answers:
1. I really need to clean my _________?
My son's room.  It's SCARY in there!  Now when you look in there is doesn't seem so bad but....lil dude has a habit of hiding crap he knows shouldn't be in his room- like food wrappers.  On the side of his bed by the wall- dirty clothes, toys, and garbage.  I've been very stubborn on doing this because HE DID IT and HE SHOULD clean it! 
2. What food makes you think of Christmas?
Ham!  I love ham and the only time we have it Christmas time. 
3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
Wow what a question...maybe 30 that's when it really hit me that I need to do adult stuff and get my life in order!  However, I would love to do 21 over again but only that birthday!
4. What was your first paying job?
Does babysitting count?  LOL!  My first paying REAL job was a waitress at my uncles cafe. Can you guess what I'm still doing almost 30 years later...yep I'm a waitress!  I've had other jobs in between but I always go back to that. 
5. Have you read the Twilight series?
HECK YEAH!  Big fan.  I've read and watched the movies plus can't wait for the next movie to come out in November 2012.  ( I wasn't that impressed with Breaking Dawn Part 1 but it was good)

Drawer 1- misc JUNK so as you can see I got rid of or put away majority of what was in there.
Drawer 2- magazines/cookbooks and more JUNK.  Now nice an organized.
Drawer 3- kid stuff and of course just crap!  Now its pens, pencils and other kid items.

I came across this cool CHALLENGE on Pinterest (my new addiction- sorry Facebook!) and here is the post : http://abowlfulloflemons.blogspot.com/2011/04/21-day-challenge-revisited.html

She did her challenge awhile back so I'm on my own here (unless you want to join).  I look at my house everyday and wish I had more storage or why do I feel the clutter (clean of course) is going to attack me someday.  I do daily clean up but you know everyone has those "AREA'S" that you just cringe or cover up when guests arrive.  Well I have several, LOL!  So let's DO IT!

I tweaked a couple days on the list to reflect what I need to do around here.  Now some are small projects and some are all day projects.  I'm going to blog everyday too, so I'm going de-clutter and get in the HABIT of daily blogging!  I love when I can multitask! 
Anyone up to following my lead and doing this challenge?  If so let me know and we can keep each other in line!  I might really need that..BTW! 
I will begin Sunday November 27th!

Thanksgiving 2011

Now I might not have all my kids in one location but I can do a scrapbook page as if they were all here together.  I miss you Nick!

I'm full and tired now so I will write more about this day tomorrow!
