Road to a home.... is anybody out there?

Cleaning
Wow, more than a year since I visited this site?? Funny though, I wanted to share today's success with people who'd understand my "YAY ME!"  And unfortunately my FB feed has an awful lot of people who wouldn't understand.  Born organized to say the least... and judgemental to boot.

Road to a home = Maintenance + Project + Me time... so here it is.

1. Maintenance - I did the Flylady hour and a few "top of the hour" challenges.

2. Project - I made space in my life for music!  We have a tiny little place and I've been sad that I don't have a music room.  Today I realized that cleanup efforts elsewhere in the house gave me space.  So I tackled the nasty pile o' DWIL (Deal With It Later) and carved myself a music area.  I've been afraid things would get bumped right by the front door -- but maybe people are trained because big fat boxes have been there so long. And I'm using the hand weights to hold things in place, clever that.

BEFORE: One of the triggers for this was that my 7yo has finally decided to let me donate that 1960s-ish toy piano...because we have something better to put there.

AFTER: All the things that have homes have been put in their homes. Some has been put onto the back porch where I made space a week or so ago. And some.... ah some has come into its own. There's even a home for the extra kitchen chair.  So what if I still don't like the carpet...because WOO HOO I have space to play the keyboard.  Next task will be to make space for the music books so they don't clutter up the 7yo's launch pad.

3. Me Time - Can you guess?  Yes! You're right -- I spent time noodling around on the keyboard!

Yay, go you! I love how the you time and the project fit so nicely together, that sounds really satisfying.
