In a Fog: Part Two

Christy posting, late and foggy as usual...

I was up very early this morning, pondering my FAITH blog post. It took me all morning to come up with this idea... to take Jenn's idea and expand on it. Or reduce it, however you want to look at it.

Some may politely say I'm nesting, others may say, nah... my procrastination has just come to a head and I can't take it anymore.

I've got so many things I want to do with my days, I don't know what to do first.

I suppose I should make a list...

But then, if I lose the list, I'll be in trouble for sure. Back where I started from.

Clutter wise, I want to bring the lady from Clean House over to my house and help me de-clutter. I'm ready to throw things out, give items away.... I've been doing this for a few weeks now. I'd like to install a whole-house vacuum system to suck the dust bunnies out of my house on a continuous basis so I don't have to look at the floor I just swept and wonder how I missed that one... I want a new dining room table... more than ever now that my dear husband has suggested we have our Sunday School Christmas party at my house! I love to entertain, but I want to entertain with new furniture... not the worn, brown stuff I've been calling furniture for the past 5-9 years...

I've been pondering how I can keep a cleaner house. I know I should divide up the house work - hubby half the chores with me. We should probably take one room or one section of the house a day to clean and straighten, then I wouldn't find myself so overwhelmed and flustered on the weekends. Gosh, that would mean another list. I'd better get busy...

Do I decorate for Christmas now, or wait until after Thanksgiving... By the time I purchase new Thanksgiving decorations on sale, it will be time for Christmas anyway...

In the meantime, with all of this cleaning and wanting and buying I'm worrying over, I've got to edit a manuscript and mail it off to some hopefully interested parties.

Oh, and then there's my blog that I'd like to bring to life, but who has that many hours in a day?

And if that's not enough---

WAIT... I forgot what the last thing was I was going to mention!

See, I told y'all I was in a fog. And you are sitting there, shaking your head saying, what else is new LaShea?

..... So.... what are you foggy about this week?


  1. Christy- I'll pray for you. I know where you're at, and it's tough to know where to start. Where am I foggy at? Who knows. I stopped worrying about what I was forgetting long ago. If it's important, I'll remember it.

  2. I can so relate to this blog. I am so disorganized that I don't know if I am coming or going, and it all came to a head today. After I got home from church, I sat down and made a schedule of when I will write, blog, clean, etc. We will see how long that works. Otherwise, I accomplish nothing because I can only sit here and think about everything that needs to be done.

  3. Thanks for your prayers Di~ And you're right, if it's important, it will be remembered!

  4. LOL, Amy, I'm walking around starting things, not finishing them and then sitting down at the computer. Let us know how your list making and sticking to your list goes.

  5. I seriously feel your pain, Christy. I was near to tears this weekend cleaning, thinking all you've said here. I just want it all gone, and some of it replaced, too. If only I had the time to declutter so that I could enjoy my surroundings again.

  6. You all sound just like me! Everything piles up and I get overwhelmed. Luckily, I go into writing mode and block it out. But man, once I get done writing, the stuff's still there! I wish I could write it away. :)

    Christy, be easy on yourself. You're pregnant and still getting over being sick. And definitely ask hubby to help!

  7. Eileen, I think if we hit the clutter one room at a time, eventually it will be gone... there will be room for more, but that's for another day's woe...

  8. Missy, I'd love to be able to go into writing mode and block it out. Now, sometimes I can do that. Lately, it's raking on my nerves!

    Yes, I need to hire hubby to help. I think he's been on PV(Paid Vacation) for too long...;)
