Disorganizational Skills


Once upon a time we had an aluminum fishing boat, a wooden paddle, a cricket basket, a minnow bucket with little mesh dipper, a couple of cane poles, and a decently stocked tackle box. All of the fishing equipment fit nicely into the boat for storage. The boat was stored outside under the shed. We went fishing a lot and we caught a lot of fish.

Those were the good ole days before we felt the need to have so much stuff.

This morning, as I sleepily stumbled through the dining room, I had to side-step around a new trolling motor, and a metal detector and it came to mind that I've been going around these two articles for several days now. There is a crossbow with 6 arrows atop the armoire in the bedroom, open the top doors of the armoire and there's the training collar for the dogs, with charger, one of those hand held, satellite guide gadgets that supposedly keeps you from getting lost, a rolled up sleep sack, items of cammo clothing, items of orange blaze clothing, and a wooden boxed set gun cleaning kit. I dare not look atop the cabinets for fear of finding some petrified minnow,,, or something,,, once used for fish bait,,, or something.

Somebody in this house had better learn some organizational storage skills, and since I'm the Queen of disorganized, it probably ain't gonna be me!

I guess they call that progress. I used to fish with my husband, and he had all sorts of stuff. I just sat on the edge of the dock with my cane pole, and dragged in a lot of fish.

You could gather up all the stuff and put it into the boat outside, and see how long it takes them to realize it is missing...

But then I LIKE doing stuff like that keeps them on their toes! teehee

What's on top of the fridge? That's where all the sweets are in our house because Stretch can see it all. Although... I think there are library books, a garage door opener, and medicine for the dog's ears. Hmmmm. I'm going to put my blinders back on. The house looks cleaner that way.

I too lack the skills of which you speak - my little study looks like a leftover yard sale and the garage and my work shop are not any better. The rest of the house - the Spice's domain - looks pretty good, so I know it just has to be me. :) ec

A crossbow in the bedroom...kinda reminds me of a certain someone who kept an axe in his.
