Messy, Messy, Messy

I have been a bit busy lately.
On Saturday we leave to go on vacation.
I have the garage full of things that need to be painted...
tables, shelves, a buffet, some mirrors that I need to rehang.
Needless to say, Bill hasn't been able to park in the garage.

I think he would like to park in there because we will be gone for a week.

Guess what that means...MAISY HAS BEEN PAINTING!

When Maisy paints I get nothing else done.

Just look at what has happened...

(please feel free to click on the photos to case you can't read it)
I keep buying avocados with the intention to make some guacamole. The problem is I NEVER have the other ingredients.

I just put things down sometimes thinking that the big idea is going to come.
Problem with that is....sometimes it just doesn't come.

Why oh why???

What the hell....
It is all so random.

Someone once told me there is order in chaos.
I can't find it through all my crap~

Hi, Ho, Hi, Ho it's off to painting I go....
See ya on Friday...
I will be in full blown panic mode because I haven't done anything for this trip.
(order in chaos...order in chaos...order in chaos...)
Happy Wednesday~

So I should invent a random sorter you say???? LOL....I recognize that tray, as well as other misc crap that sits on my counter/tabletops, too! I just hate the chaos, but people live here, you know????? Have a productive day! would you like me to send over my fairy?????:)


Nikki said...

Have a great trip. My house really messy right now and I'm not even painting.

Lissa said...

I just painted my dining room table and wonder why I didn't do it a long time ago! Isn't it true that its impossible to keep up with everything??? While one thing gets done another falls apart!?!?! Anyways, I'm hoping to go to garage sales this weekend to find more furniture to paint! Its addicting!

Jackie said...

Take a deep breath and know that we all have chaos. My kitchen counter and dining room table always have random stuff on them and it never seems to all get put away at them same time...have fun painting!!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

So nice to see that others have chaos, too!

there's nothing like some unrelated event to kick our buns into high gear.

LOVE this are so real with us! Know that you are not alone, my house is DIZ-ASS-TER and just might stay that way for another 2 weeks.

LOVE from CA!


Anne Marie said...

so relate.........and with 5 kids under 12, well, you kwim!

order in chaos comes from you letting go of how it all looks and letting it just be (the who cares business...I'm going on vacation)

if your sink is clean, then all is good.
have a wonderful time on vaca!

Libby said...

My house looks the same way. When people come over, I find myself saying, "oh, excuse that over there." Enjoy your vacation.

How are your patients doing?

Sarah said...

I am so relieved to see someone else has a grease stained report card! They seem to attract it every year! LOL I don't feel so bad reading your post for the day! I have been painting all day too! I hope you get it all done and feel super accomplished as you leave town! Have a great time!!!

Tracey said...'s so true, everything else falls by the wayside when trying to get projects done. I guess you just have to embrace the mess:)


The Kramer Angle said...

Forget the housework! My house has never been so messy in the 20 years I've been married. But guess what? I'm also the happiest I've been in 20 years because I'm doing what brings me joy!

Besides, housework makes you ugly! (My friend Molly sells hand painted signs and hand made necklaces with that exact phrase on them!!!)

Enjoy your day!

LillySue said...

I have hubby fooled because I just move my piles from one place to another and he thinks I actually clean house all the time, heehe! I believe things can so totally wait when you are into a project such as painting furniture!! I do it pretty regularly and my kids have yet to miss a meal.

jen said...

My house falls apart real quick if I'm working on any type of project!! This is sort of childish, but I play this game with myself. I set the timer on the oven for eight minutes and then race around cleaning up as much as I can before the timer sounds. Hey, it works!!

Have a great trip!!


Tara said...

Oh Amy, this is one of the reasons i love you, you keep it real and you are just too cute! Have fun painting, see you Friday....!

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Love all the pictures of your crazy mess! Enjoy your trip and hopefully you get all the paint done so hubby can park the car in the garage!!!

Lisa said...

Oh no! Good luck! You'll get it all done!
Hugs, Lisa

LuLu & Co. said...

I've been crazy painting too and I have 8 house guest arriving in 2 days and I am in chaos too! here's to keeping it real!

Jeanneoli said...

Let that man back in the garage!!! I feel his pain. My husband has all his tools out because he has been working on a big project...I will show soon. I just want my car in the garage:-) Love that new white mirror on the desk. You should try my cleaning method. I stuff all the crap in the hall closet before people come over and then forget about it:-)

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Have fun painting, Amy. It's a pain, but the results are always worth it, girl. Honestly, does your husband REALLY need to park his car in the garage? I know if we had a garage, there would definitely not be any car parking there - much more important uses for a garage!

Honey Bend Vintage said...

Don't you hate that. My husband makes piles every where around the house. I swear he puts his motorcycle helmet on the stove, why??? My college roommate always called that surface dirt!
Happy vacation~
