confessions of a disorganized housewife....

I still have my Christmas decorations up!  Ok now that, that's out in the open I feel much better!  I really want to get everything packed away but I haven't had a minute yet, except for maybe last Sunday but ya'll I needed a nap...
I am going to have HD get the boxed down from the attic tomorrow evening so that we can start on the job.  HD works this coming Saturday so I can get everything done and have him put the boxes away.  We are going to a Sunday School class get together on Saturday night we are to bring soup.  I am making clam chowder, and some fresh bread.  I love the New England creamy kind not the brown Manhattan kind.
We are enjoying our new church so much!  I realized a few weeks ago that I really wanted to go to church, I actually couldn't wait to go.  I have been going to church for many years but for the last few years I have not really felt like a vital part of a church family and even though we have wonderful friends something was missing.  I have found it, it was a whole family of Christians.  We have a small couples group we go to on Wednesday nights, I am really looking forward to meeting tonight.   In two weeks our church is having a sledding snow boarding, chili and pie cook off  festival of sorts.  We have rented a snow machine and will be having a great time.  HD, being a Texan and all has decide that he needs to win the first prize for the chili contest.  I on the other hand want to have the best pie.  But what pie, the rules do not say we can't make more than one pie so I think I will make 3 so I have a better chance to win, and you can never have to much food at a Baptist function, we like to eat.  I am thinking I need a peanut butter pie and maybe a cream pie, I am unsure of the kind of fruit pie to make so if you have any ideas let me know...
So I am going to go vacuum around the Christmas tree's again and hopefully for the last time this year.  As soon as we get the decorations put up we are starting on redoing the kitchen flooring and painting so that we can get this house on the market, maybe that's why we have been procrastinating so much we just have so much to do.
I have  been getting up early every day to do the Wii Fit I have lost 4 pounds since I weighed in on Monday with a group of woman, we are calling our little group Weigh and Pray and we are following WW while weighing in on Monday mornings and praying for each other.  I really want to lose 16  more pounds.

Have a great  and Happy Wednesday!

If you leave up your Christmas stuff a little longer, Santa might come again (at least that's what my kids thought!)

Wow! Great job on the weight loss! I was doing good on the exercising, but I think I sprained my ankle. I kept working out, but it just keeps getting worse so I have decided to take off a week. I really hate that because I don't want to get out of the routine...but girl, I am in PAIN!

Anyway, don't sweat the Christmas stuff...in eleven months,it'll be Christmas again! :)

I am glad you are enjoying your church, it does make a big difference! Enjoy your get together this weekend!

My main tree is still up! The other two have been put away for a while. I guess we just have more important things to do right? Yeah, that's what we'll tell ourselves!
Great job with your weight loss and I'm happy for you with your new church! We sure do love ours.

busy lady! when we moved to okc and served in a baptist church there we cracked up at how food showed up at pretty much every meeting & function. needless to say, there are a lot of overweight baptists and i am one of the biggest! ☺

It sounds like you have found a wonderful church! That is so nice when you have one that you really feel like you are a part of. The pie contest sounds nice & the chilli cookoff! I'm drawing a blank on a pie but if I think of one I will let you know.

Have fun taking down your decorations, that is the one job that I put off to:)
