My simple life

It's been a simple week for me. Mr10yt was out of town for work again. It gets lonely, but thank goodness I have my two dogs, Sophie and Caleb, to keep me company. The good thing about Mr10yt being out of town is that my best friend lets me dogsit her dogs so that I have extra protection since Soph and Caleb are wimps. Max and Mia are super good guard dogs. They come over when Mr10yt is gone and stay with me until he gets back.


OC Nesties had a gtg on Sunday, January 24th - potluck and books! Friends, eats, and reads are one of my favorite combinations. WeezerMonkey did a great recap here with a lot of photos! Too bad my camera isn't as nice as hers otherwise I would have posted my pics too.
Everyone was such a good houseguest and it was so nice to see everyone again. I love my girls.
Lowlight of the party - some of our nesties were sorely missed. Highlight of the party - no one got shanked.


To keep myself busy when Mr10yt is out of town, I've been...cleaning! I've made it a point to declutter and get organized for 2009. That is my goal this year - to get my house and head in order. I'm on my way!

Closet before:


And closet after (with about 75% less stuff - I swear I have no clothes anymore):


Next projects:
- paint guestroom
- clean out guestroom closet

Thanks for reading!

I love the 2nd picture! Sad that I missed the GTG. Great progress on the closet. That's how our closet used to be . . . but ever since we decluttered, we've been able to keep it organized (for the most part).

Nice camera comment.

#1 - your dogs are adorable, but I have a huge heart for bully breeds, so Max and Mia need to come hang with me and my dogs!

#2 - The first two pictures of your closet gave me a tiny heart attack. But the last pic looks fab!
