I had a nice surprise when I woke on Sunday. The online site that I use to watch television shows (we don’t have cable) already had the season 3 premier of Outlander. It was a great way to start the day, but now I have to wait until next week 🙂 I wish I could do the “wait until all the episodes are up and then binge them” thing but when it comes to certain shows I just can’t wait.

Saturday as a family (it’s usually just me and the girls because Tom works so much) went for a walk around the neighbourhood to go to Spirit Halloween, the mall, and pick up some groceries. Tom got a full dose of what it’s like to have to carry a lot of groceries home. I always bitch about it since my shopping cart broke last year but he has never experienced it in real-time. I was chuckling to myself when he was loading heavy things in to the cart like jugs of juice and such and told him it was going to suck to have to carry it home and he was like, “no, no.no. It will be alright.” so I was like, “okay dude, just don’t say I didn’t warn you.” And it did suck. and I laughed while I was doing my lamaze breathing that helps me carry the weight. I don’t think he will volunteer for that again 😉 I need a new shopping cart before the winter but I can’t seem to decide on either this style or this (I’m leaning towards the 2nd because it can go up stairs). I had a big boxy one before and while it carried a lot to was a pain in the ass and didn’t turn corners very well which isn’t good for snow and slush.

I’ve tried to clean and organize my closet so my fall sweaters are now more easily accessible but it’s such an awkward configuration in there. I’d love to be able to do an Ikea closet revamp but a) we rent and I am not spending money to re-do a closet only to move in a couple of years, and b) I don’t think it would really work that well because of all the extra storage crap in there. My goal is to one day have a nicely configured closet. It doesn’t have to be a big walk-in closet (I don’t have tons of clothes, shoes, or bags), just something that looks neat and completely organized. I like this one and could probably just get 2 sections instead of three. Three would be nice though 😉

I did some good purging this week in clothes, toys, and furniture that needs to be dropped off to donate next weekend (the only time when the car is home), so now it is piled and cluttered in my front hall while it waits. It kind to makes me want to just go put everything back to get it out of site but it’s better if it goes.

This is random but I’m not looking forward to having to wear high socks again 🙁

  1. love the kimono! it must be nice to wear sweaters already. so dang hot here in the South. Ikea might still be an option for your closet – they have 2 systems that really cheap that you do’t have to install. You just put them together and push them into the space. My 16-yr-old daughter who is an aspiring fashion designer/seamstress spent about $150 and is super organized now and it all happened in about an hour (and she can take it to college).

    • Really!? I am going to totally go check that option out. Every time we ho to Ikea my husband seems to speedwalk past the closets so I’ll have to make sure to slow down to check out what they offer. Thanks so much for the idea!
