I want to be one of those super creative people that makes their own holiday decorations. I am NOT one of those people. Unfortunately, Pinterest makes me feel incompetent. Isn’t it bad enough I fall down that creative rabbit hole for hours and feel super inspired, only to try and fail over and over again?… Continue reading Ok Pinterest, You Make Holiday Decorations Look So Easy But You Make Me Feel Like An Epic Fail!
As you know, I like to review products that I think you all would like. My opinions are always my own and this latest one is very worth it! I was contacted by Brightech that makes magnifying lamps in all shapes and sizes. When I first got the email, my first thought was one of… Continue reading Product Review-A Great Holiday Gift!
Ok ladies. Men too if you are on Pinterest. We need to start a petition or a call-a-thon or a March to get Pinterest to understand us better. I get the feeling they don’t care about us anymore. I’m seriously considering sending them this Dear John letter. Feel free to share this and tag Pinterest… Continue reading An Open Letter To Pinterest. We might have to break up unless you change.
I gave up. I couldn’t see my text messages anymore on my iPhone. Even with the text setting to XXX large. So the other day I decided to just give up and get the iPhone PLUS. The one that is somewhere between a regular phone and a laptop. But I got it in the color… Continue reading I Blame Midlife for Having to Buy a New HUGE Phone!
So I was grabbing a meal from a fav restaurant last week when I noticed something odd. Well odd to me. A father and son were having lunch and the kid was back and forth from the play area. (What I like to call the germ pit). But that’s not the odd part. It was… Continue reading DIY Man Tanks (Wife Beater)
Everyone needs goals. Whether it’s to get out of bed every morning, run 5 miles a day (not gonna happen unless I am getting chased by a wild animal), find a new job or get organized, we all need goals. This year my plan is to get everything in some kind of order. I am at my best when my spaces are organized and everything has a place. When everything is messy and unorganized I tend to have anxiety attacks and fits of rage. Just ask my family.
I live with all boys and a dog. All males. They tend to be messy and are not bothered by clutter. Happy as freaking clams. So when I nicely suggest they pick up after themselves the whining and tantrums being. Thing 2 drops to the floor in a fetal position, Thing 1 starts to defend his piles and the dog just moves to another room. And then I flip the freak out. I threaten to throw everything away. Just haul it off to the dump. But I know I don’t have the energy to actually do it.
So I have a plan. I am reclaiming my home! Everyone has been put on notice. My office is now MINE. I am working on revamping it to fit MY needs. The boys have a ‘man cave’ upstairs so all their crap has been moved upstairs. No more dropping off everything in the office when they walk in the door. Big Daddy has one tiny little corner for his stuff. We are working towards making that look better. I will post pictures when I am done. Before and After. Here is just a snippet of my desk.
So while I am searching Pinterest like a crazy woman, I found something new. It’s called ‘Bullet Journaling’. It was created by Ryder Carroll, who is an art director, web designer and a lot more. He’s kind of a big deal. It’s kind of a kick-ass to-do list for EVERYTHING! I watched the video on his website at least 100 times and I am so addicted. I am working on my on bullet journal now. More to follow…
Here is a link to his website where you can check out the video he made on this Bullet Journal thing.
Now back to organizing, you can see what inspires me from my Pinterest board here:

Can’t wait to have a completely organized home and life. Even if it kills me. Or kills my family.
