The Boomerang Effect

I am not going all "social psycology" or marketing on you here.  My Boomerang Effect has nothing to do with the textbook definition of this phrase; my boomerang is clutter!  It keeps coming back no matter how hard I try and you know that I have been trying because some of you have been very happy recipients of some of my extra stuff from our other house.  First, let me say that I was very proud of myself.  I was actually creating order out of chaos in the basement.  I achieved a couple of my goals that I told you about early on in my blog; the main one was that I emptied the hallway and cleaned out a room in the basement before the end of October.  Now this is where my boomerang has come back and walloped me in the side of the head with one giant "thwunk"....weep with me friends....

We needed to have a heat recovery unit installed in our basement, so a couple of days ago the contractor came and told me that I was going to lose a chunk of my food storage space and that I needed to clear it all out so that he would have room to work.  I also needed to slide my loom a bit to the side.  Well, I guess they needed more space to work.  They just left and my basement now looks like this...pull out the kleenex box....

Okay, so I like my loom here....I may have to rethink my floor plan.
I can't really say anymore than what the pictures say other than I can't clean it up because they have to come back next week to do something.  Actually, I am tempted to ask my sweetie if he would paint the room for me before I put everything back.  Not sure how well that will go over...I am the painter in the family and I am going to be out of commission for a while.  I could use a more inspiring colour. 

Must go and pick up my chipmunks...they have dance and music tonight and then I must rush home to meet up with my sweetie...he is taking us out for dinner tonight.

I always love to hear what you think about what I am working on. Tell me about what you are working on or have been inspired to start (...or pull out to finish).
