Wine & Cheese ~ 97th Serving

wineandcheese2Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Most Wednesdays I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs. I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal. If you’d like to read the past editions of Wine & Cheese just click HERE for all of the past postings. Sit back and join me now for the 97th serving of some whine and cheese!

😦  I am a reformed pack rat, so why, oh why, was my closet such a freaking mess?  It took me 4 hours to clean it out and my bedroom, then dust and vacuum yesterday.  OH the things I threw away that had not been touched in at least 2 years, despite my following the 6 month rule.  If you haven’t used/worn it in 6 months, and it isn’t seasonal, toss it.

😦  Grandsnuggler #5 is still not here.  It is the official due date but my baby girl is home on leave now and I hate seeing her time eaten up without that little baby boy in her arms.  Come on baby, we want to meet you!

😦  I can’t afford me!!!  My love of ‘stuff’ like stickers and washi tape for my planner, Chipotle for lunch, a new desk for my room….sigh.


🙂  Yes, the room was in need of a deep cleaning and the closet.  But the task is FINISHED and I’m much happier.  I think, honestly, that my mental state was reflected in those areas, I just wasn’t settled into things completely yet as far as money, job, finances.  That is all solid now and BOOM, went on a cleaning spree.  That or my daughter’s nesting phase rubbed off on me?

🙂  I missed the deadline to register for Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University at church, mostly because I didn’t have the funds, but then I discovered the book, Financial Peace Revisited, and the companion book, Financial Peace Planner, and I’m on the road to getting my finances well under control and my debts paid off!  I’m ecstatic.

🙂  My laundry is all done too, which is an awesome accomplishment.  Nothing like an empty hamper, clothes all clean and hung up in the closet of folded in drawers to make me feel like I have my life together.

🙂  Library = HAPPINESS!  And even more so when you can check out books via Kindle.  I love love love READING!!

🙂  Well rested, crochet projects to work on, books to read, and feeling balanced again in my life.  15 pounds lighter than I was 2 months ago thanks to my very physical job…WOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!

  1. I can’t afford me either. And I don’t even have expensive taste!
    And there was no better feeling after I redid our master bedroom, then the fact that I had a clean and organized closet!! It’s like a little corner of Zen now.
