10 Monday Random-ness

Hello everyone. I am sleepy and a little stir crazy. Hopefully I will get a little bit of sleep soon. I'm working at night now for the next 2 months so I get to go to bed at 9 in the morning. I love staying up at night but my body fights me to get the sleeping schedule on track.

What did I do this weekend?
I organized and cleaned. I know it sounds so exciting! :)

For the record, I am not a hoarder or a pack-rat but I do seem to own a lot of stuff and nothing really has it's own place so we just shuffle things from one place to another. I don't like it at all so I decided we are getting rid of stuff.....a spring cleaning of sorts. I'd already taken a few boxes down to donate a couple weeks ago and it felt so good to get the stuff out of my house. Yesterday I loaded the back of my Explorer with more boxes and bags of stuff completely full of clothes and toys.

Going through my closet was the worst for me. I have clothes that are way too small and I desperately want to fit in them but there is no use holding on to those clothes. I ended up getting rid of 2 garbage bags full and I still have more to go through. I figure if one day, I do lose the weight and fit back into those clothes, I'll reward myself by buying some new clothes. It's a sad little closet having all of these clothes that can't be worn.
I want to start painting the walls and doing the floors in my house soon so the organization and spring cleaning is the first phase of it. I want to get rid of a bunch of furniture too. Maybe I should place an Everything Must Go sign in my yard and let everyone clean my house out and start fresh. I miss that feeling when we first moved into our house and didn't own anything really. The questions were how to fill the space, not how to move furniture over just a bit to fit more furniture into the rooms.

I haven't been posting as much and I need to kick it into high gear to get you some more giveaways! For my next EdenFantasys post, I'll be hosting another giveaway, so keep an eye out for that. I have gotten rid of Disqus commenting so no more hijacked comments. On the poll about commenting, it was neck and neck with people who wanted entries via blogger comments and google forms. The fact of the matter is more people are entering with the forms, so I'll be using forms for the giveaways.
The biggest complaint with the forms is you can't see how many entries there are in the giveaways. I think I'm going to manually update the giveaway list to show how many entries there are every day. That will solve some of the concerns.

I am rambling at this point. I do hope you enjoyed your weekend and that your week goes super quick so you can enjoy your weekend when it comes.
Tiff :)
