A Peek at the Chaos

So a friend or two have asked for me to get photos on here. Now, these are NOT after photos. They are the chaos photos. Everything is SUCH a mess. There are things to do all over the place and I find myself flitting from one mess to the next. I end up working on something in the bedroom only to realize that I was previously trying to accomplish a task in the kitchen. I have also unpacked all my wedding china and all my Christmas china, but have yet to find my everyday dishes.  So goes the task of moving.  
It looks all nice and orderly, doesn't it? 
Well, take a step back.
Then turn around.
Look to the right. This is what happens when you go to the thrift store too often. Although most of what you see below is my good china. There are stacks of random pretty dishes that I have purchased over the years. My good friends that helped me unpack were amazed at my dishes. And I don't even participate in Thursday Tablescapes!!!
Below is the view of the Family Room. 
The TV is already up and going. We've got our priorities straight, don't you know.
I've just thrown stuff into the pantry with no rhyme or reason. The organization will follow. 
I just need to get it in there.  

Buddy's trying to adjust to the new place too. Seems he can't figure out where to "go". So, alas, a puppy diaper was purchased today. He's not so sure about it. But, I had to do something!

All this just seems very trivial in light of the disaster in Japan. My HH was scheduled to travel there this Sunday, but that has been cancelled. I am so VERY THANKFUL that he wasn't there at the time. So, in the meantime, I'll be thankful for the normalcy of a blessed life and moving chaos.  


  1. Looks like a lot of work. But, I bet it's fun too! Just let me know if you need any more help. I'd be happy to lend a hand. Your pantry shelves look great! ;-)

  2. Oh my goodness I love that puppy diaper!!! I know a dog who could use one.

  3. It will be beautiful - it REALLY will! Poor Bud - he really looks forlorn. My dad always said when you gotta go, you gotta go. Good luck. Wish I could help but for now I'll just shake my head and watch you 'melt' the mess. Love you!

  4. Your (dis)organization brings back so many memories. We moved 15 times in 40 years, and in some ways it gets easier, but in other ways there is nothing easy about it! The best part, when all is said and done, is when you want/need something and you know exactly where it is! :-) That day will come, so enjoy the process and keep plugging away.


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Please say hello while you are here. It would be so wonderful to meet you.
