What am I thinking...?

It's a rhetorical question, I don't really want you to answer.I'm a little scared of what you might say. This week was busy, not in a happy productive way. More in the wanting to pull my hair out, quit my job and move to a corner of the world where I can just be by myself...with my iPhone and lap top of course. Okay, maybe it wasn't that bad, but it really did have its moments. It started off great with mom here visiting, but work, that was the breaking point. It was Monday and we all know how Mondays go. They're busy and stressful, everyone is rushed and that's when it happens... you loose your cool. I always feel justified in the moment when I loose it, but later when I have had a little distance from the situation usually I'm embarrassed for myself. For some reason I tend to have a lot of loose it moments in Subway, the sandwich shops. If you ever get to meet my family in real life ask my youngest brother or hubs about this one. I feel bad for them looking back, and have come to the conclusion that I need to choose a different sandwich company.

When I get frustrated and overwhelmed I do the worse thing possible... I add more to my plate. This week I was stressed out, had to stop and take moments throughout my day to pray {see I'm trying to keep it together}. Yet, I have made a list of all the things I want to reorganize around the house. Oh the House, that's the other point of stress. We've lived in our house for about 8 months. It was brand new when we bought it, but we have started to notice a few things here and there that have got us in a mini-panic. There are small patches of paint peeling in a few places. Did they prime badly, is it going to happen to the entire house. Lord, please don't make us have our whole house repainted. The home warranty is up in May, so we are at go time to get issues addressed. Hubs has another inspector coming out next week to reinspect the house, seems like a small investment in the long run. 

So here is the list I've come up with for this weekend...and maybe the next as well. 

#1 Organize/clean out my closet and dresser {this is huge}

#2 Organize/clean out the cabinets in my bathroom

#3 Make a few rearranging/organizing adjustments to my sewing room

#4 Do something with our pantry: organize, label, something {trip to the container store!}

#5 Mark all of the visible spots with the peeling paint

#6 Check that all of the electrical outlets in the house work.

#7 Pot my new plant {this one is all fun} Hubs helped me do this when I got home from work last night.

#8 Sew the 6 orders I got this past week

I'm thinking about how I want to tackle each one. They may not all get done this weekend. But a few of them for sure. May have to space out all of that organizing. Wondering to myself if i organize the physical things around me in order to feel, in order when other things in my life feel out of order. Thoughts? Advise? Wanna come help clean?
