Posts Tagged ‘missing a kitty’

I think the time has come for me to own up to the fact that I’m as scattered as they come. If I could somehow pull it all together, maybe I’d spend less time looking for the stuff I need to do, and more time doing it. Also, my couch/office was starting to overflow. So, I took everything off of there, and started a bit of sorting- nothing major, just 2 shopping bags and the stuff that I felt needed to go back on there.

The thought being, I would sit and work on the left, a few projects could hang out in the middle, and some books and stuff that I use all the time could share space with a cat or 2 on the left. Sofar, it hasn’t worked. Sigh. Will try again this weekend.

I also thought, if I could fill a calendar with what I need to do, and write down important to do’s, I could keep my projects moving along. Enter: the white board calendar:

I think the idea here will be to assign projects different days to work on (sweater 1, Mondays and Wednesdays; sock 3 has Mondays and Thursdays; baby hats on Tuesdays, carding on Fridays, etc) and I can order them based on when they’re due. And finally, to keep stuff I need to do on the computer in order:

Here, I will keep lists like: email so and so about fleece, pay bills, invoice this person, email thank you’s, etc. I told the kids if any of my pens disappeared they would be beyond in trouble- that this was all mommy’s work stuff. So, some fun drawings have popped up- and that’s ok as long as nothing of mine gets erased. So, here’s hoping…

How do you guys do it? Please tell me your organizational and productive tips.

Thank you all for linking back to the AIDS Walk on your blogs- you guys are so supportive, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. It’s getting closer…

There’s been a bit of sadness this week. Tuesday one of our little hamsters, Comet, died. She wasn’t very old (not quite a year). Also, my very old cat, Squeak, was just getting older- and starting to fail. On Thursday morning my neighbor who is a small animal vet came over, and while I held her in the sunshine, we put her to sleep. It’s always a hard decision to make, even when you know its right. I do have to tell you this- being able to do it here instead of putting her through the stress of a car ride and vet visit was priceless- I’m very grateful to my neighbor for saving her that stress. So now, no ancient cat is stumbling across my keyboard making odd words, no ancient cat is missing the litter box. She’s not wanting to go in and out 50 times a day just to watch me open the door. I don’t care- I miss her. Safe journeys, Comet and Squeaky-Black-Bear.

I bet you’d like to see some goaties. As always, you’ve come to the right place.

There is Baby Enigma- her legs and ears are growing quickly.  It doesn’t matter how many pictures I take of her, I usually only get about 2 that aren’t blurred from her constant motion. She has springs in her hooves. She does love to sit in your lap and be petted- she’s a little puppy-goat.

I bet this watch tastes good!

And here are Evan and Renesmee doing what they do best- being cute! (and growing mohair- would you look at it all!)
