Feeling Better...finally

Wow, it's been a rough week. I've been sick for what seems like weeks, but it was only 5 days. Two of those days, I never crawled out of bed, except for potty breaks. Today I feel much better though, let's hope it lasts.
Today is : National Organize Your Home Day!

So in honor of that, I am going to start doing just that. How do you organize everything? Know any good websites to visit on organizing? Tell me your organizing secrets!

I found this really neat battery keeper on Amazon for only $1.99 and I have batteries all over the house, never to be found when I need them, so I ordered two of them. It was 75% off, so I think I got a deal.

Looking for many ways to store things, so please give me ideas!


1. What was the last thing you regret buying?
I regret buying the living room furniture I bought. It was NOT the set I wanted, and I have wished every day since I got it that I had spent the extra money and got the one I wanted.

2. If you had a crystal ball that could tell you the truth about any one thing you wished to know about yourself, life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?
I would like to know if this health crisis I'm in will pass, and if my finances will ever get better.

3. How do you know when you're in love?
For me, even at this old age of 53, I still get that 'giddy' feeling when I'm in love, that silly ear to ear grin that just won't go away. You just KNOW!
I've decided to join BLOG 365. It's a very fast growing site for people who blog daily. Check it out here, free to join of course! I'm trying to commit to posting every day. Since I am sick, I will post several times a day on occasion to make up for when I cannot post.
Also found a new meme for Mondays called Mana’o Monday. It is a weekly writing challenge and today is the first day. My post will be added for that meme on my stories blog later today. Let's all try to help her get a good start.
Also found another cool thing - Are you a List maker? Determined to get your life together? or Just want to have some fun?

The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.
From the 1001 Day Project site

Start a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days from the day you start. If that sounds overwhelming, start with a list of 10 things and add to it as you go. Be sure to mark the things you accomplish with Complete or finished. I will be working on mine this week. Here a a few examples : 101 in 1001 - The ToDo list for Gary LaPointe and Can you Hear me Now?

Even if you decide not to do this, the blogs are fascinating! At least check it out.
Last but not least, can you explain to me what an Entrecard is. I hear this term a lot, but not sure what exactly it is. Thanks....... Have a great Monday!

Sorry to hear that you're having health issues - I'll cross my fingers that this too shall pass! I'm with you on finances - according to my budget, we're just trucking right along with paying everything off, but it just seems that the light at the end of the tunnel is about a million miles away sometimes!

Happy Monday - hope you continue to feel better and have a good week.

I tried blog 365 too, but there was too much around it.
And I certainly didn't like the look.
So I just blog all days at my site.

Great manic monday answers.
