I've not done much blogging these last couple of days, maybe because not too much noteworthy has been going on around here.
That's not to say we've been napping a lot and stuffing ourselves with caramel corn. (Okay, so I DID make two double batches of caramel corn. Hey, it's the perfect time of year for it, right?)
We really have been getting things accomplished.
One thing that's been happening is the sorting out of areas that have been too much of a mumble-jumbled mess for too long. De-cluttering, if you will. That's the aim anyway. How much headway we'll continue to make (and there is a LOT of headway still to be made) along those lines remains to be seen. But we have been working at it.
While trying to bring organization to the disorganization, deciding what to toss and what to keep, figuring out what to put where for a better way of storing it, we've found we're a pretty good working team.
My hubby has plans and ideas that would never occur to me. He's truly an idea man. He can come up with a "good" reason for keeping anything. I'm the practical, down-to-earth one who sees more clearly that we can't do everything each of us professes to want to do. He's always ready to think outside the box and I can see what is realistically possible and what is not. (He's fond of referring to me as his anchor. But I'm not at all sure he means it in the most complimentary way.)
I like to think that we each have our strong points and by working together and respecting each other, we're making some changes that will benefit both of us more than if we just did everything his way or my way.
