Organize your Stuff (round 5): WOYWW 154


Welcome Wednesday! How are you doing? Well, it has been another busy week, and that means that time has flown by us yet again. It is now time to show you What is on our Workdesk. The Fabulous Julia at the Stamping Ground hostesses us as always. Come over to her place and peek at all the desks, messes, and fabulous craftiness that the world has to offer.

Here is our desk this week…


OCD Me and the POW are on the verge of staging an intervention and cleaning up the Chernobyl-esque disaster that is our craft room. However, since the POW is also in charge of making sure that the kids make it everywhere that they need to go, get fed, occasionally bathed, and that the Cat does not disown us, it is still at the bottom of the infamous To-Do list.

However, one of these days, we will not have anything better to do…in which case PA Me and the Inner Hoarder had better take notice. It will get cleaned! (really) (no really. You can stop snarking coffee out your nose. It is not that funny…ok, maybe a little).

Here is our card for this week.

We started out fabulously serious, but then Creative Me added the googly eyes, and it made us smile. Tim Holtz is probably shaking his head in shame… but we still like it. (Has the POW mentioned that we are just a tad sleep deprived right now?)

(***The POW’s Warning: The rest of this Post is family stuff. Skip to the End if you are just here for the desk***)

This week on the Front, Fabulous Spouse has been busy escorting VIPs and trying not to let the humidity get to him. He managed to send off this picture of himself meeting Nancy Pelosi (former Speaker of the House of Representatives, and current Minority Leader). We were just impressed that he actually got it on film. Sometimes, you just need to be in the right place at the right time!

Most of our energy this week went into preparing for Girl Friday’s Girl Scout Troop’s fundraiser… a Mommy Daughter Tea. Each girl was responsible for decorating a table and supplying the place settings. We turned to Goodwill to get our place settings and most of the rest of the decorations. This is what we ended up with…a high end bumblebee theme…

…All the guests voted on best table decorations, and she came in 1st place! Since Girl Friday set the table and arranged the flowers in the middle, we definitely call this her win (even if Creative Me and the Inner Hoarder did the actual shopping). We just had to throw this picture in, because it reminds me of Alice at the tea party when in Wonderland!

While we were tea partying, my brother and his wife were bringing a little someone into the world. So, they qualified for Mother’s Day (American Observance) just under the wire.

Illusive Middle Child (token Morning Person in our family) got up at 5AM, heated the oven, and made us cinnamon rolls. Did we mention 5AM. He made all of us breakfast in bed (which upset the other two children as they did not see the point in getting up at 6AM…even for cinnamon rolls).

Earlier in the week, Illusive Middle Child took 2nd place in his age group for the Hershey’s Track Meet and qualified as a State Finalist. We are very proud of him. Especially since he did not join the track team this year, but went out for the meet because his gym teacher asked him too.

Oldest Child is still throwing shot put for his Track Team. We had our first meeting for High School Football last night, and he is super excited…except that summer practice may keep him from attending the Troop 50 mile hike.

Now off to peek at some desks! Thanks for visiting!

Great card, I loved the google eyes! Congrats on the new family member and your hubby getting to meet Nancy! I'd love to meet her. My BF would have never remember the photo! LOL I noticed that you mentioned "Hershey". Do you live in PA? I only ask because I lived in Lebanon for over 10 years, and know the area well. Love Penny scrap-aholic.blogspot.com
