How do you know when things in your life are feeling “helter skelter”?  For me, its when I don’t know what to do with my hair, or when I start thinking about changing it drastically.

So you may have noticed, or at least it would be almost be impossible not to have noticed, that I have not posted an outfit post in what feels like forever. I do get up and get dressed and do my hair and makeup daily, but just have not been getting around to photographing the simple jeans, t-shirts and flats that I have been sporting for the last three weeks.  Along with not photographing any outfits, I am ashamed to admit I have not been to gym either and my eating plan is on rocky grounds.  I am blaming the weeks and weeks of rain that felt like months for my complete state of apathy.  I do however need to get back in the driving seat, so if you have the GPS for my life and enthusiasm, could you kindly pass it back?

I have however managed to get a few jobs done.  One of them being decluttering my ‘apotheke’ drawers which I had been wanting to do for at least three years but did not get around to.  Finally its done, but now the drawers are in need of further fixing as the bearings are all shot and the back is coming apart.  I also cleared out the bottom drawer of my wardrobe along with some other minor and not easily noticeable places like tons of photos that were blurred and icky and just sitting in folders and I finally moved the printer onto my desk and hooked it up to my laptop as I was tired of the rigmarole I had to go through to print a page. The job is still far from done, but I’m working at it – one pile at a time.  You may have noticed a post or two of things I’ve found while tidying out old folders, like the Gammon recipe and how to set a table.  I hope the change of subject matter was not too shocking.

I guess some of the stresses of my situation and now my ex’s have weighed me down a wee bit and sailing this new sea is unfamiliar .. but its coming together, not quite how I’d envisioned, but it seems to be taking shape.  Don’t give up on me just yet, tomorrow may be the day I wake up with my enthusiasm in full force and I finally throw on a pair of heels and a blazer.

    I hope you get out of that funk soon. Decluttering is always a good thing when you don’t feel all that together. Praying for you too.

      The prayers are much appreciated. At times its hard to tell if you’re just being stretched or pushed in a new direction and am finding that I’m being made to possibly make peace and find acceptance of my life as it is as well with some of my own preconceived ideas about my life.

    Decluttering is sometimes the way that you work yourself out of the funk that life sometimes causes us to fall into ~ Take it one step at a time. Around this time of year Flylady does the “40” challenge … last year was to sort out 40 boxes in 40 days (of lent) which people interpreted their own way if they didn’t have boxes of stuff to sort out. Praying that you find that enthusiasm GPS real soon (and when you do pass it on to me!!!). Love you sista!!!

      I think I should do a 40 day challenge. If I find the GPS I’ll be sure to pass it on over to you.
      Love you
