Truth Thursday: Supergirl

Ready for some truths?
  • A week without my kids revealed how boring I am. ;)  But I did manage to get four paintings finished.
  • P (my youngest daughter above) is helping me clean out.  She's brutal.  She's like the Supergirl of organization. She has a look that says, "Really, Mom?  You're keeping THAT?" I'm usually shamed into putting it in the giveaway box.
  • I'm organized in odd ways that aren't helpful. For example: my craft ribbons are meticulously arranged in their shoebox vs. the pile of undone laundry waiting to be washed. In my attempt to get better, I'm letting Flylady help me.
  • On my time off my sister and I went shopping; I bought four dresses for under $30 at a store named EcoChic.  I'm not normally a dress girl, but they were just so comfortable, cheap and cute I had to get them.  I wanna go back there soon!
Got a truth you'd like to share?


    1. but laundry is so boring!
      glad you finished your paintings..I love dresses, are you going to post any pics of them??

    2. I don't blame you, do the fun stuff, the other stuff will always be waiting. :-)

    3. I think I'm organised but when I look at my ironing room - I realise I'm not really - and like you i'm a hoarder, but I always swear i'm not.

    4. Oh my, I can totally relate to the being organized in unhelpful ways!! lol I'm trying to be better but I've had to make myself realize it's like dieting. A constant daily struggle. Which means I'll consistently fall off the wagon but have to pick myself back up. I like the Flylady and have done it....a few times!! haha!

      I'm going to email you something!

      Cute photo of your daughter!!

    5. Incipient, hadn't thought of photographing them, but maybe I will!

      art2, think I have that philosophy a little too often. ;)

      Clare, hoarder? me? *deny, deny*

      Nicole, "a few times" haha. yes, me too.

    6. Truthfully, living in the RV I now wear a shirt, wear it to bed, and wear it the next day. I have decided we are "camping" as far as the laundry goes. I call it recycling.

    7. Yay on getting four paintings finished! Well done. :-)

      Let's see...a truth about me...I think I tend to not be as "tough" when my husband is around. If I can cry on his shoulder because I'm in pain (lately it's been menstrual cramps!), then I will. If I'm by myself, I tend to "buck up" more. I do not know if this is bad or good!

    8. I hear you!!!
