Have you noticed time is slowing down?
Usually when April gets here, I'm all, "It's April already? Where did the time go?"
Now, I look at the news and I wonder how it's only been three months since the inauguration. How is that possible? It feels like it's been years.
That, along with the Biden/Obama memes, could be--in my own humble opinion--the only upsides to the current administration.
Can you tell I have nothing yet?
Thank you Nan for the shout-out on Tuesday. It's been as much fun for me as it has been for you.
Yesterday, KB and I stalked a Ryan Gosling lookalike in the grocery store. Okay, maybe stalking is too strong of term. She asked me if I noticed the guy in the black sweatshirt and gray sweat pants and how he looked liked Ryan. Well, that I had to see and we found him in the meat market--coincidence?? And he did look like he could be Ryan's doppelganger. And he was nice as well, pointing out a garbage can after we all sampled crab cakes.
I decluttered my kitchen today. I'm tired of all the clutter--seriously. So, I'm trying to do it small stages. And my kitchen is the smallest stage in the house. Plus, it's been invaded by little sugar ants. Which while harmless, are a pain in the backside. And they seem to be everywhere these days. I've heard when it rains a lot--and it's rained A LOT, two record-breaking months in a row, the Columbia River is over flood stage--it drives the ants inside. I'm not sure if that's true, but it sure feels true.
So, today, I turned my microwave stand which was basically a mail dump station--into a baking stand and moved my Keurig to where the Kitchen Aide mixer had been, thus freeing up an entire counter. I bought some mug hooks and hung up my coffee cups and found a wine rack to store those plastic cups with lids and straws. I must admit to feeling rather accomplished now that I can see my pink counter tops again.
Hopefully, this new declutter thing will last until I get a good run through the house. Normally, I'd put the timeline on this at about two years, but with the new time drag, I could be done by the end of summer!
As I tell my girls, "It's all in how you look at it."
