Goodbye Ruby Tuesday



For those of you who have known me since March....

(Cue theme from Rocky. Mint enters the arena with her arms raised in triumph)

I did it! I finally cleaned out my office. I forgot that I had carpeting underneath the piles of books.

look at that bookshelf

all clean (ignore the moving boxes)


My cleaning the office was necessitated by the fact that we are hosting at least 4 parties from June-August. The first occurred this past weekend as D's mom and sister's came down to see us. I'm very lucky to have great in-laws and we all had a great time.

OK. There are still a few issues. The closet door won't close completely because I have a hanging door rack that is packed with shoes. My husband said perhaps I should get rid of few. Blasphemy! A woman can never have too many clogs or lavender sandals that only go with one outfit she owns.

Teegee: My, my, aren't we a smart-ass so early in the morning. I'll have you know that it's been 4 whole days and it's still clean. HA!

Don't listen to her ! I have faith in your obsessive compulsiveness to clean ! and organize !! Not to worry !! But honestly, once again, I seem to have indulged in the same cleaning process, albeit for my entire house. Though, unlike you, I didnt take proper Before and After pics. I will dirty it a bit and flip the pics around I guess ;)

pray why bring up such depressing topics? i've been putting it off for some months now. there's probably a couple of homeless people living in this mess somewhere now.

It looks loff-ly :) I used to clean up my desk too, mainly to put off studying for an exam I was cleaning up for, but it always wound up looking like a tornado hit it anyway. So I gave up. Ah well.

Ya, very nice looking office. I especially like the wooden cupboard.

I sometimes go through phases where I simply MUST tidy everything up, or I'd die. Thankfully these phases don't come often, or last very long.

But you go right ahead and keep it up.

I so agree with your observation on shoes :) Like the clean desk. Specially like the cherry finish furniture (it IS cherry, isn't it?) But don't like the fact that you have shamed me into cleaning my desk :( Well, we'll see how good a procrastinator I am...

Oooooh! Nice furniture. I am with TeeGee. If you are a human being, this is too good to last.
