Ive lost my mojo. Ive been working on Halloween costumes and struggling at keeping the house clean. Also seems like theres been a lot going on. From class reunion, company picnic and then the lake. Halloween is around the corner and then so is Thanksgiving (my family is celebrating super early, the 7th) Ill get back into the swing sooner or later
You definitely sound busy right now Robin! Sorry you have lost your mojo. Hopefully it comes back soon! It must have come to visit my mojo as I've had some extra lately. LOL! Been working on the organization challenge on FB and that really has me wanting to get some scrapping done! Now I just have to convince myself to actually do it rather than work ahead on my scrappy organization. Can definitely relate to the struggle to keep the house clean. I'm having a hard time getting caught back up. I think a lot of it is my mentality of the situation. Just so tired of cleaning up after everyone and being the only one that tries to maintain the areas that are clean. Guess that is why I am enjoying cleaning my scrappy room....I know that that is a mess that only I made and I am the only one responsible for keeping it clean afterward.

Kelsey- Ive been doing the Organizing challenges too. Need to work on my scraps still. Ive lost my mojo on pretty much everything.. cleaning house, doing laundry, making meals, getting out of bed, working out... lol... Im really trying to kick my self back into gear though. Need out of this rut.
Robin, I think I'm in the same rut as you are. My mojo for EVERYTHING has gone mia lately.
And it also doesn't help that work is incredibly busy for me right now too. And add in being sick, well it's a wonder if I remember to comb my hair or brush my teeth each day. I've decided to start breaking my issues down in steps - house is first. I am taking off work this Thursday& Friday and possibly Monday too. The boys will be gone to work/daycare Thursday, Friday and Monday and I plan on deep cleaning this house. I can do so much more without "help". For the heavy stuff, I'll have them help me on the weekend - dusting the rugs outside, cleaning baseboards, move furniture so I can really clean the floors, etc. The rest of the little details, I will do on my own plus clean out toys, outgrown clothes, switch our summer clothes downstairs to storage and make sure the winter stuff is ready. Doesn't that just sound like so much fun . . .so who wants to fly out and join me??? No takers . . .
Ummmm no laughing Becky I will come help you if you come help me. Snow has already flown and I need to clear out the garage. In June, yes June I had hubby take everything from the basement out there.......the kids have slowly brought it all back in. So now my basement and garage is a mess. Plus hubby got back from being gone for awhile so I had to put the scrappy stuff up....it was on the kitchen table. The worst part is 2 days ago I just realized I had not gotten any Halloween decorations out. I think this is the fall funk.
Nicole - cute house. I hope you're able to get it and sell the current one quickly.
Tiffany - Sure, I'll help you & you help me. And maybe we can scrap together too when we get our places cleaned up.
My garage is a mess too, plus the basement. Rest is starting to come together though. I hope to work on the basement this weekend, then garage next week. DH gets testy sometimes when I reorganize his tools and such in the garage, but he'll have to get over it. I need it cleaned up!!! And sometime this weekend, I also have to get Mark's costume made, and I plan to pre-make the cookie dough (freeze it) so I can make the cookies I promised for his Halloween party at daycare. Always so much to do, and never enough time. . .
Today was a nice day and I didn't do my garage. I think snow is coming Monday. Ahhhh Instead I stayed inside processing 16 grocery bags of veggies and then to top it off my DD went back to Miller Farms with Girl Scouts and she brought home another 8 bags. I did make some French Onion Soup today that was AWESOME! Ok just checked my phone it says tomorrow will be a couple degrees warmer than it was today. So I will tackle the garage tomorrow because it did show snow on Monday.
