Thruthful Thursday.....{or Me Being a Little Less Chicken}

Good Morning Friends!!

I hope everyone has had a great week so far, just think we are only really one day away from the weekend. I figure why count today, when we've already gotten up because that's the hardest part for me!!

Speaking of which, what time do y'all wake up? What do you do in the mornings? I used to be sleep until the last second possible, run run run and leave. At the time I was a smoker and I wouldn't even wake up early enough to have relaxed smoke in the morning! Well now 9.5 yrs later, I'm total opposite, I'm smoke free and I get up at 5 am and we leave at 7:50 am. I pick up, change the laundry, dishwasher, tidy, etc until 6 am then I allow myself to have 'me' time. I usually do all my computer stuff so I can have a clear plate to start the day,read blogs, emails, facebook, etc and have my coffee. I enjoy having everything cleared, tidies and a fresh slate, plus it would take me three times longer in the evening along with everything else.

Anyways, I've been doing the link up from Amy of While Wearing Heels for This is Me, and this is been such a cathartic experience for me. So much so that I've decided that I'm going to make Thursdays around here Thruthful Thursdays, along with other posts if I want/need to. It's going to be about anything that I would normally not share because it's not "perfect" dang type A personality! I hope that you'll join me! Now I have no idea how to do a Linky Party so if you do want to join post a link, a story, etc in the comments and I'll try to start to figure out how to make a linky party.

So here it is:

Y'all laundry, ugh, laundry. Don't get me wrong I am so grateful that we are blessed to have clothes and the "problem" of laundry, BUT I can't stand the putting away part. For real, I wish we had three complete outfits, one towel and rag apiece, and two pairs of jammies. I would NEVER have anything to really put away, lol! Nothing else of laundry bothers me, not the sorting (which I gave up long ago I just use vinegar in all my loads), changing from washer to dryer, unloading and preparing the clothes to be hung, folding EXCEPT putting them away. Maybe it's all the different closets - gosh I sound like a BRAT! But it is what it is, and I am who I am (thanks Amy!).
Ok so I snapped this picture on Mondays and was gonna put it on facebook to show my 'downfall' ......but I'm too chicken still to do that. So I decided I was gonna share over here where I'm completely more comfortable. This little exercise was two fold for me, making myself more comfortable with showing the real me, and it pushed me to put away those clothes. I could just hear all of y'all saying, 'Take a break shell, rest and then put them away a small section at a time.' So thank y'all so much for allowing this blog to be that sanctuary that I always wanted it to be! This is my work on goal for April, I usually leave all the stuff folded and ready for hangers on the dryer. I'm gonna work on putting away each load asap! So I best close out and go put up the one on the dryer now!
Ok confession time! What are you struggling with, words or pictures are great! Please tell me I'm not alone?
Much Luv,
PS. Ok since it IS Thruthful Thursday, that first picture isn't completely accurate....both sides were about 4-6" higher. But I just couldn't bring myself to post THAT picture yet!

Glad it's not just me haha!! I hate folding and putting away!!! Love hanging them out though :)

You are so funny! You are not alone my friend. In my small house, my laundry room is the catch all for everything. It's a complete disaster and if I were truly brave enough, I would share a picture of it and you would know that your pile of clothes waiting to be put away was nothing. What a novel post. I love the honesty behind it. Thanks for keeping it real.


So random story, yesterday I was thinking about you and you popped into my head as Shell, and I was going to ask if you ever went by that, because that's who you are to me. :) And now you referred to yourself as said name. :)

I wake up around 7 (which is when my 3 year old wakes me up)! It's early enough, but I then dilly dally, so we are rushing everywhere. I want to stop doing that!
