Tackle It Tuesday

Well, my day started off pretty well. I'd made some wonderful cinnamon breakfast bread overnight that made the house smell wonderful. After the kids left for school, I cut the loaf in half and took part of it over to my neighbors. They invited me to stay for coffee, so I came back across the street to grab the new coffee mug I'd gotten yesterday while shopping with my mom. It was the same design as one I'd had growing up, so I was thrilled to find it. On my way over, I "tackled" the front steps. Literally. So, now I have my first skinned knee in 20 years or so. It looks awful and hurts a lot. I enjoyed coffee and helped Lenore and her mom address, stamp, and stuff a bunch of invitations they needed to get out today. After coffee I came home to find the other half of the bread missing. I thought this was curious, since I'd left it way back on the counter. Apparently it was still within Dixie's reach. She was napping happily in my bed. She had "tackled" the breakfast bread. What a way to start the day!

So, I decided to get down to my real "tackle" for today, cleaning out the back room. I'd show you pics, but the batteries in the camera are dead. It's the room we avoid if at all possible. The one where everything you need seems to be hiding in the 16th box you look in. It is not good. But, it looks great now, okay maybe not great, but lots better. It will be great before the family gets home. I've filled three big boxes with clothes to go to the local clothes closet. I've found lots of great old keepsakes, and some things I've been missing since we moved in. I am so glad to finally be dealing with this mess. I'm back to finish the room of doom. Happy tackling ya'll!

Back rooms are always the worst tackle....especially on an injuried limb. I hope you heal soon:-)
