The Cleaning Game--Update!!

My original post was at 4:30 this morning. I am home from work now, have cleaned out my purse, and I paid myself $1. So, I'm off to a good start.

But, this what I really should have done instead:

This is Miles, my kitty. Don't you think he looks just so innocent lying there on the floor?


This is what I encountered in my dining room this morning!!

And into the kitchen to make my coffee!! See how he has the yarn wrapped around his water dish and into the box that he took out of the trash can??

I just don't know what to do with him!! I think the solution is this:

Hopefully, one of the tasks will be to clean out your closet. Then, I'm going to put my boxes of yarn on the top shelf where (hopefully) he cannot reach them.

This mess was from one of two boxes that contain yarn, and believe it or not, I have a stack of book on top of them just so he can't get into them!! How he ever managed this, I just don't know. How I slept through all of this, I just don't know that either!!

Off to post my latest Love Dare! Stop by and visit!! Come to think of it, Miles is quite a challenge to love sometimes, too. He's lucky I love him so much!!

K--that's all for a while!!

What a perfectly precious kitty!!! I have 2 just like it. I solved my problem when took over my daughter's old bedroom after she graduated from college. This became my craftroom and is totally shut off from my very mischievious kitties! Good luck with cute little furball! Blessings!

Aw I want to cat nap too. I did come by did I forget to leave a comment?
You do not have to clean you closet like me. You just pict 1 thing like organize your yarn that is all you have to do is 1 task of your choice. It can be organize any thing like cat balls. he he he. I have 2 cats. I love them And you can come and visit any time when we get the new place. I would love to have company.
This house is a rehab and may never get finished till we move out. We bought it as a fixer upper for vacation or retirement. But after hubbys bypass. He could not work hard like he did before. So we had to sell every thing we had to survive 2 years with no income. We were blessed to have this place paid for. So we have a roof over our head and now he is on disability so we have an income. Every thing has worked out for the best. Then to find the farm that is an answer to prayers if we get it in Aug 09. I love to sit out side and swing or rock. The porch is wonderful.

Blessings Beth...Miles needs to pay you a dollar. Is that today's or tomorrow's? I was thinking that about having all your yarn in a room that you can close off...or a closet that shuts. I knew you had your yarns organized & out of Miles way...so I wondered. You have to do this every day or every week? Gotta follow you to Love Dare! Sleep tight! Be well & blessed!

Miles cracks me up. That yarn mess is a riot. I am so glad it's not mine though. LOL

I keep my yarn in those zipper up plastic bags that sheets and comforters come in from Walmart. I bet Miles can't work a zipper and the benefit is you can still see what's inside without opening the bag.

OOOOO NOOO! Now that is too funny.
I know not funny to you, but we do just have to laugh about it, don't we. My cat did the same crazy stuff, She use to go in my drawers and pull out my undies, and bathing suites and bring them out when we had company. Lay them on there feet! I was so enbarrassed.
I love your post, and good luck!
