So, I've been organizing. What've you been doing?

Oh guess what? The brother-in-law came up to spend the weekend. They have a Wii Fit and I'm officially jealous and WANT ONE SO BAD!! Have you tried this thing? It was so much fun and guess who was the ONLY one over 13 and in the NORMAL BMI range....that would be me!!

I've discovered that yoga just might be my thing...hula hooping, not so much.

You may not hear from me for a day or ten because I'm going to tackle the play room starting tomorrow. I'll try to do some before and after shots so you can see just what's going on in there. It isn't pretty.

I didn't think I was ever going to get through A2's room but I did and it looks so fabulous in there. There is so much extra room in his closet right now that I'm seriously thinking about taking my book that I'm almost finished reading and hiding out in there. NOBODY would ever think to look for me in there....muuhhahahaha.

My yard sale holding area is filling up with junk fast and I've still got a long time to go and a lot of shit to sort through! Saturday the husband went through and actually decided to part with some of his older than dirt clothes and I was so proud of him. I seriously considered flashing him, with the good boob no less (shut up, you know you got one that looks better than the other), while he was down there working but decided against it. He didn't need the distraction and I didn't need him pawing all over me since we were expecting the family to roll in any minute.

I've got to go work out now. I didn't do it on Friday after I swore that I would. Real shocker there huh? It has to count for something that I've been working my ass off around here and not sitting on the couch or am I reaching on that one? I played on the Wii Fit for over an hour on Saturday night. I know that has to count for something. My calf "muscles?" were so sore all day yesterday and even some today. Matter of fact, my right one is still pretty darn sore right now. I've either been that active or I'm that out of shape. We don't have to hash it out right now.

Oh well, I ain't going to lose those last 13 pounds just by wishing them away. Have a good week if I don't make it back!

So neat! You've been busy!
If your addicted to Wii, I'm addicted to Rockband. Totally awesome! I feel like a rockstar. Yeah!

A1 has Guitar Hero but I haven't quite gotten the hang of that yet. The brother in law has Rockband and when we go in for a visit the whole gang rocks out. It's quite funny since we are not known for our rhythm and definitely not for our singing ability! I'm usually the one with the camera thank goodness! :P

I LOVE the Spongebob motif. I am a big BobBob fan. I should post a pic of the bday cake I got one year. I wonder if my hubby would let me put that decor in our bedroom....

I want the Wii Fit too, but it's cost prohibitive. It's all over eBay for nearly double the real cost, and that pisses me off. They all say "Sold out everywhere". Yeah, because you bitches go into stores and buy them out so nobody else has a chance to get one, and then you sell them for an overinflated price. I refuse to buy from people like that, and I can wait patiently to get one when the price drops.

I see an obession for Sponge Bob...oh and the closets look nice, too! :-)

Amber said...

Can you come organize my house? Heck, can you just come and put a price tag on everything so I can start all over? :-D

Oh, and here's a tip for you that I learned - closets can also look a whole lot neater instantly if you use all of the same color/style of hanger.

Cloudy said...

Yes, please do my house next, I will pay you $$$.

Holy Cow that was alot of work..

Now you have proof that you did it and you can show pictures of what it's supposed to look like.

I want a Wii Fit too!!

Yes, I do believe well all have one good boob.
I have been organizing too! It's great! I even finished 3 small projects on Saturday that I've been putting off for weeks! Yipee!
Now I just need to finish my damn guest room-it's still just all storage!

PS. nothing personal, but I HATE sponge bob. Patrick is the whinest, dorkest THING I've had to listen to in awhile!

Along said...

Wow, I can't remember the last time I organized anything. Usually I'm like you, just push shit from one room to another.

You got me motivated, gal!!!

Miss Grace said...

Now I want to see pictures of what it all looked like the next day!
I organize, and then I use my stuff and don't do any of the upkeep. It's not a very good system.

MadWoman said...

So when should I expect you over to organize MY house?! I badly need to get into the cupboard under my stairs and deal with the mess. It's ridiculous.

I'm with you on the Wii thing. I think I am gonna get one for Hotty Hubby for his birthday and then pretend that I know what I'm doing. Come play sometime!

Heidi said...

Geez! You HAVE been busy! Looking good!!!! I made a tiny bit of progress around here, but not enough to post pics of. ;)
I've heard so much about the Wii Fit, I may just have to break down and go get it. I've been resisting until now, but THAT is a wise investment! :)

whiterabbit said... I am feeling like a loser cause my closets are all sties. :P

Scary Mommy said...
