One Step Forward….Two Steps Back

I decided to tackle some boxes of memorabilia last night and that was a big mistake. My living room, the one place that was basically put together now has a spot of hot mess.IMG_3272

The Barbie catalog just came in the mail and it’s been more than fourteen years since I ordered from that company? I’m not sure how it ended up in this mess.  I have cards that my mom saved and some I put in a bag to give my dad. I can’t save everything.IMG_3284

I did find an old newspaper article from 1975. It featured a preschool trip to a horse farm and at 4 I was pretty adorable.IMG_3254

I can’t tell if I look afraid or irritated that the wind is blowing? This little trip down memory lane is all I did last night.

I didn’t go near it today and while I still have an area that is a mess, I accomplished more in other areas today.

I bought some heavy duty shelving from Ollie’s today. I didn’t really need the heavy duty part but for $29.99, the price was right.  I have an unlimited supply of styrofoam containers from Alcon at work so I took some home today.  PT uses these types of containers to store her stuff so I am going to give it a try.IMG_3287

I am hopeful that now when I go to work on a project I am not searching in five different places, it should be here.  I hung some curtains in the walk through room and the girl did some work in her room tonight. We are getting there, slowly but surely.

I also stopped at the local ReStore today and signed the girl and I up to help build my little buddy’s house with Habitat next month. It should be fun… theory. It will be an adventure for sure……Zia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.
