Getting Back into the Swing of Things

piled high… Mostly empty boxes.. not as bad as before.

It seems when one is sitting on a couch, staring at the walls, dedication to de-stuffing or de-cluttering flies out the window. I’m proud to say, the dining room table is still in pristine condition. Piles of papers and artwork have not accumulated there. However, the rest of the condo has mysteriously returned to its pre-destuffing state.

Noe, I could say that I’m glad to be feeling better and one option is to just not worry about the clutter. But, now that I’m feeling better, I want to eliminate the piles that have accumulated.

So, if you were de-stuffing right along with me before, you’re more than welcome to join me again.

First Project

Do you have a spare bed? I do. It’s in my office and seems to be the easiest place to toss stuff when you don’t know, or don’t care to find somewhere more appropriate to stash it. Here’s my twin bed in the office.  If I can tackle this,  you can tackle anything…..


News from The Boys

A couple weeks ago The Boys went to the vet for followup on their diet.  The results are spectacular.


Knuckles is proud to announce that he has met his weight goal and weighed a svelte 11.9 pounds.  Yay!!!


Bugsy hasn’t reached his goal yet, but he is making progress and weighed in at 13.9 pounds.  Yay for Bugsy too.

I still have to sit with them when they eat to ensure they don’t try to eat each others food, but other than that, the diet has been smooth sailing.

That’s the news for here. Have a good day and join us as we participate in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog.

    I have not been in top form, either. But over the last month, I have started to round the corner and am downsizing. Yes, I have a spare bed and it is in worse shape than yours. My daughter is planning a garage sale and all of my stuff is piled on that bed and in that room. It is starting to drive me nuts but it rains every weekend, so no sale!

    Boys, you are looking as handsome as ever. We are super happy to have you back on the hop. Congratulations on meeting your weight loss goal, Knuckles. Bugsy, we know you too can do it. Mom really needs to follow along with the destuffing you are takling again, Lou. When she starts, she seems to just trade one piled up room for another.

  6. Wish we had a spare bed but we don’t! Great news that all went well at the Vet! catchatwithcarenandcody

  7. Well done on the weight loss, and good news that the table is still clear. Around here the clutter still appears, but come end of June things should change as peep is retiring. At least I hope they’ll change!

    Bugsy and Knuckles are such cuties. My catch all is the dining room table.

  15. Marty the Manx says:

    Boys you are looking handsome as always 🙂 I tend to land the paperwork on the kitchen table and the clean clothes on the spare room bed 🙂 The pleasure of having the house to myself hehehe.

  16. Jean Dion says:

    The boys look beautiful, and I’m so glad to hear about their happy vet visit! Best of luck on the decluttering project. I’m one of those crazy people who puts everything away all the time. Clutter and I disagree with one another!
