We started the move up to Deep Creek Lake, MD from Winchester, VA, on Tuesday, supposed to be about a 2-hour trip, but had mechanical trouble and spent a night in a ratty roadside motel waiting for a part to arrive so we could finish moving practically next door. Wednesday we finished the trip, set up enough to live through Thursday, left on Friday for Columbus, OH, for a BIG family weekend, which I will post about after I get our mess cleaned up, and during which I did a 13-14-mile run, jumped on the trampoline with the grandkids, and did pushups with our teenage step-grandson; drove home yesterday (Monday), sat our butts down and went, "Whew!" I slept in the truck on the way home, and took a 2-hour nap later in the afternoon/evening, and still slept 9 hours overnight.

Really, I am going to post about our great weekend, complete with pictures (which, According To Ellie, have to be edited and perfected before resizing and publishing...)


But first I have got to clean up this mess.


Total Mess
And after:

Table Mess + My Computer Mess


Sink and Sofa Mess

Bedroom Mess


Each one only took about 20 minutes. Not bad. Now I'm going for a run. 10.5-mile loop.

You have your work cut out for you!

wow that is a mess ;) I am sure you'll get it under control.

I have really responded well to the FIRST training. I feel like I have been getting faster without the risk of injury and have been loving it. I'll let you know how I fare on the marathon level in 2 weeks!

Doesn't look like mess to me. Looks like disorder and clutter.

Mess has old food and insects and rodents and stuff like that.

Great to read that you are such an active grandma, and that you are getting GOOD rest too.

I love the "Before/After" pics. You have the right to be proud!

What a cozy little place.

Thanks for the photos...I have often wondered what your traveling home looks like-very cute and nicely decorated I should add!
I will never be brave enough to post before and after photos...as no one would be able to tell the difference!

I'd pay you to come to my house and get my clutter under control!
