One thing about me, is that I am a huge procrastinator. So today when I called over to my friend’s house, her husband answered the phone with, “So have you gotten it clean yet?” Obviously he has been visiting my blog. 🙂
I had to admit that I hadn’t even started. (Sheepish grin here.) This is where that accountability thing kicked in. I knew when I got off the phone that I HAD to clean the disaster in my kitchen. So this is for you Chris!
Let me tell you I am more than a little mortified at what I found! I found two graduation invitations–that we MISSED! I found a thank you–that never got mailed. I found so much! EEK!!! But it is all organized for now. I think I am going to make some curtains to go around our makeshift microwave stand. Hmmm…maybe this weekend.
But there is something that I really want to share with all of you! When I tackle a big project I like to work in time blocks. I have found that for me, listening to a podcast while I work makes that much easier as well as more enjoyable.
There are many that I listen to, but today I listened to one that had me laughing as I was working! I have been enjoying Craftsanity (yes, it is available on Itunes). However today I chose an episode that I think everyone would love! It was actually from February 28, 2006. It was an interview with Deirdre Flint. She is a comedic musician. Instantly she reminded me of Christine Lavin. Deirdre at the time (and maybe still is) was performing with The Four B*tchin Babes, a fun group to listen to! I am going to have to download some, if not all, of her songs. They were really that good. I really liked the Cheerleader song, but The Boob Fairy song was definitely a classic!!! Check her out.
Tomorrow is a new day! I have a new project, equally scary and still in my kitchen. I am going to tackle the art cupboards! It will be a bit more challenging as I will be eating breakfast with my mom and sister, and then having my cousins over to play with my kids. Yet I will turn on my podcasts and enjoy my hour (or so) of organizing.
