A Random List of Good Intentions

I made every attempt to relax in January and for the most part I did pretty good.  Actually I was pretty much forced to, as I have an annoying pain in the neck.  I developed a pinch nerve in my neck and besides the off and on pain, I have had intermittent tingling down my arm to my fingers.  I had an MRI a few weeks ago and as mom said after having one "When I die, make sure I am really dead before they put me in a casket."  Even if your not claustrophobic it's just too close for comfort. 

I am a list maker.  Partially because I have so many things on my mind that I want to do and mostly because I am at that age where I'm afraid I wont remember to do it if I don't write it down.  I carry a little notebook around that I write everything in from weekly menus, grocery lists, everyday to do things and someday to do things or as I call the latter "Good Intentions".  Next week and the week after I will be taking a few extra days off from work so I will be able to spend a little time on crossing off some of my good intentions on my list.  I hope!

The Storage Room

I think this is pretty self explanatory.  This may take a few days!

The Pantry

This really doesn't look that bad but all the stuff on the floor makes me nervous. 

The Clothes Closet

Again it's not too messy but there is just too much in it.  When I go in to find something to wear it's like a big blur to me.  Everything melts together and I will stand there for a long time with brain fuzz trying to decide what to put on.  There has to be a way to organize better.

The Under The Stairs Closet

I don't even know where to begin with this job.

These four are on the top of the list.    There are so many more.
  • Scanning old pictures
  • Converting VHS to DVD
  • Writing a story before I forget all the details
  • Re doing my blog for the purpose I intended it to be (make sense?)
  • Get a picture of me that looks like me.  Or have someone take one and photo shop it till it looks better than me.  Ha!  If I smile my eyes close and if I don't smile my cheeks fall.  Fail either way.
I did join Pinterest.  My goodness there is a lot of stuff out there.  Love it. 

So today is the first day of February! We really have had no winter at all. It's in the 70's here in Texas. I even went out and pulled a few weeds. It's just not natural but the older I get the more I like it. 

Hope your day is as beautiful as the weather is here!



  1. Kathy,
    I keep Post-It notes everywhere to remind myself of what I need to do. I need to reorganize my pantry, too! Our weather here in Georgia has been gorgeous...upper 60's. If this is winter...I'm lovin' it!

  2. When you get all your storage places organized, please feel free to come up and start in on mine. I'm getting close to auditioning for "The Hoarders"! I've got to clean out my closet....too many shoes...can that be possible??

  3. Wow. Your list sounds like mine! I need to get some scans of pics from you. The one with Grandma as a little girl that was in her hall looks so much like Max and think he'd like a copy. He wonders where his blonde hair came from!

  4. Thanks lot for this useful article, nice post
