Tackle It Tuesday #8

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I hope all you Mom's had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine did NOT go as planned. Chip was supposed to be working, and the kids and I were going to go to my parents house. Well, on Saturday evening, I had a rib go out and was in tremendous pain. This has happened before, but this time was much more painful. When I woke up on Sunday, I could barely move and I knew I wouldn't be able to make the drive and wasn't sure how I'd take care of Ruthi. So my fabulous hubby called in and stayed home to take care of us. So I was lying down for most of the day. Of course then my upper back started feeling stiff from lying around, so I got up and SLOWLY began moving. After a while I was beginning to feel some better, thankfully. And that fabulous hubby? Well, since he was home, he cooked a fabulous dinner!
Yesterday I was moving around better - still some pain, but much more manageable.
This morning I am driving to meet my mom and handing over my precious little girl to her. My parents are off work this week, so Ruthi will spend a couple days loving on her Nana and Poppy and getting even more spoiled than she already is - if that is even possible!
Then I'm heading to my chiropractor. (He's not in on Monday's so I had to wait until today.) Then I have to go pick up some soft drinks for tonight. We are having a Neighborhood Watch meeting at our house this evening with hot dogs and stuff, so I have to get all that stuff ready.

And on to the BIG tackle! Last week on my list was to clean off my kitchen table. Well, I did that - technically. All nice and clean. (Sorry, no picture, but I'm sure you can use your imagination.) The problem still, though, was this:

These two chairs on the "back" side of my table keep collecting stuff! When I need to clean off the table in a hurry, everything gets dumped there. And I've been neglecting this area. So, my tackle is to sort through all this, organize and put things where they belong. There is a LOT of stuff there, so it's a pretty big job, but I hope to have it complete before the meeting this evening.
Once I get this done, I can finally start working on my business binder (another big tackle!) This has really been holding me up, as there are things in these chairs I need for that. This will be such a relief to get this done!
I'll be back with the after photo later!

Well, I didn't get the photo up last night, but I did get it done! My table AND the chairs are all nice and clean now!

  1. Oh, you poor thing! That sounds really painful! I'm glad it's starting to feel better! And I hope the chiropractor can really get you fixed up.
    Good luck on your tackle! Looks like the kind of "mess" you can find in spots all over my house. Little (or big) piles of accumulated this and that. You've inspired me...think I'm going to join in today.
    Have a great day, Jennifer!

  2. I hope you are feeling better soon--great tackle. Have a wonderful week!

  3. Oh goodness I am so sorry you have not been doing well! Your tackle sounds awesome, but RELAX would ya! :)

  4. I hope you manage to get it done. I hate sorting through paper "stuff". Good luck!

  5. This happens to me too. Usually it is on the table somewhere and very much in the way.
