Been trying to get The Muffin Man’s old room-turned guestroom-turned junk “bodega” organized and cleared out and make it officially the new “nursery”. At the same time trying to get through all my stuff taken home from the office …papers galore, old projects, gifts, stacks and stacks of CDs and miscellaneous sentimental junk… PLUS still at a loss on trimming down my pre-Mrs. Muffinman belongings … college stuff, things packed for “future scrapbooking”, and even more sentimental junk…


Then I came across this entry over at Small Notebook… I’m now encouraged to not give up…I CAN DO THIS! haha. One motivation the author had was to pretend they were moving overseas and could only take a few things. One example:

Kept: A letter from my great-grandma telling me how different Germany is now that they have airplanes and ice.
Tossed: A stack of graduation and wedding cards.

Hmm. Let’s see if this will work with me. =P

Building a smarter to-do list

If you’re anything like me… you have “to-do” lists scribbled randomly in your calendar, planner, email, and post-its scattered around the house, car, office desk etc…  and very few are actually crossed out =\  it makes me feel so busy yet unproductive at the  same time…wah!  here’s a blog entry that i read on making smarter (and more doable!) to-do lists, what they’re really about and what (not) to do in a to-do list.  makes sense?  =p

last night Gabe and i watched a choral concert, and my friend said he was getting hungry… so i offered him a chocolate chip cookie (Gabe baked a batch earlier that day). 

a funny thought occurred to me as i handed him the cookie… i was toting a canvas bookbag which had (and in no organized fashion)

• my empty wallet save for a bit of change, biz cards and random paper notes
• house keys, cellphone
• my planner
• some lollilops leftover from a kiddie party giveaway bag
• a nailcutter (!)
• random grocery and bill receipts (which were EVERYWHERE!)
• an extra jacket
• extra tissue
• a bag of cookies (freshly baked)
• a thermos of milk (for the cookies!)
• pens and a pencil, scratch pad and notebook
• and of course, a small kikay kit, if ever i wanted to look “nice”…. in this case a comb, simple powder and lip gloss.

a year ago i would’ve just been toting a small handbag with my cellphone, an organized small but complete kikay kit, face oil-blotting paper and house keys, some cash and my atm card.

a year from now, i’ll probably be adding baby wipes, an extra diaper,  some toys and anti-rash cream to the list.

hmm. =p
