Time to say good bye the Fall decor.

Yesterday I didn't get one thing on my "todo" list completed…who am I kidding, I didn't even get them started ;)
So today I took the bull by the horns and was going to Get R Done.
So first thing on my list was to take the 2 table sections out of the table and put them downstairs.
I got the girls to help me and we checked that off of my list.
I was on a roll!!!!

So the next item on my list was to put away my Fall Decorations.
I gathered them all up and put them on the scrap/pool table.
Looks like I have a bit of a pumpkin addiction…..even though I don't like the taste of it,
I added a few new ones to my collection this year.
Because of this, my container wasn't big enough to store them all in.
I had to go out to the work shed and get one from there.
That all…almost fit in it ;)

Then I thought, well I should make a label for the tote/container that they are in.
At first I was just going to write on the label with a sharpie.
But then I thought, oh it would look so much neater if I did it on my laptop.
Then I thought….oh I should add some cute images to the labels…..and since I'm going one for my Fall decor, I might as well do one for the rest of my totes/containers.
See where I am going with this, lol.

Because the Fall tote is new (My fall decor used to fit in with my Halloween decor), I didn't have a place to store them.
When Wayne and I inclosed the steps heading downstairs I made sure the tiny door was big enough to fit my tote/container.
I thought I would shift things around to better store my Decor Totes.
Which lead me to taking everything out from under the stairs.
I forgot that I needed to get out of here, as I pushed everything out, I was trapped, lol.
Most of the objects I took out of here were tools.
So out I went back outside to put the tools in the work shed.
It is so nice and organized in there now…I also had a garbage bag full of unused stuff.
I have to say, None of this was on my "todo" list, lol.

Does chocolate go bad?
I didn't think so, lol
I found these chocolates that Kristy hid on us at the beginning of the year when we decided to eat healthy.
Tasted fine to me ;)

I'm just wondering, are you a stay on task, get it done type of person, or are you like me and seem to hyper focus on a task.

I hope you all had a Creative Day :)

  1. You got very distracted early on today! Happens to me all the time 'cause I am trying to do 5 things at once!

  2. Sounds like you got a lot done today! I'm the type of person who will try to stay focused on a task, but I'll end up getting sidetracked ha ha!
    Hmm, the chocolate sounds fine..unless it tastes chalky or waxy or looks different you should be ok! :)

  3. Looks like fun! I love organizing. I have ADD though and it's hard to stay on track...easily distracted and pretty soon I have multiple projects at one time and I'm lucky to finish one of them! Ha!

  4. I say that I will do something , then something else or someone else will distract me.

  5. I have to get our fall decor put away too. I've been taking it down as I clean each room. :)

  6. Oh my gosh, I'm cracking up! Have you ever read those kids books, If you take a mouse to school, if you give a pig a pancake, etc? That's what this post reminded me of :)

  7. Looks like it was a productive day, Tracy! My to-do lists often spawn new to-do lists, so I'm not sure which category I fall into. :)

  8. The chocolates look yummy!! I love your fall decor!! The pumpkins are gorgeous!! I try to stay on task but I'm easily distracted so I rarely do :) Have a great day :)

  9. The crafters/womens term is "mutli-tasking" my husband would call it "going off on a tangent" or "easily distracted" LOL! I will stick with "multi-tasking mad woman" LOL!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
