Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Last week due to UPS failure to make a timely delivery of my new broadband modem, I was unable to do anything on the internet! Talk about having serious withdrawals!My project this week is actually what I was going to do last week but did not get to it. Well... I did, I just did not finish it. Flylady would call this one of my hotspots. Things pile up and before I know it it is a mountain to tackle!



I manage to find a place for everything to go. I put the garbage in the garbage, the groceries in the cupboards, the paper went into the shreader and all the other odds and ends went where they went. I got the lemon oil out and gave the table a good polishing. I can see a future tackle it involving the finish on my table!

That looks fantastic! We have an ottoman that is the same kind of hot spot - it's amazing how quickly they pile up, isn't it??

Great job! It's amazing how those hot spots become blazing fires so quickly. We have several of those in our home.

Okay, I am experimenting. I changed my blog back to Blogger. com and got photobucket. Go to my new blog and see if you can see them. http://www.dixychick.blogspot.com

If this works I may change back. I also posted my name again onto Mr. Linky at Tackle it Tuesday site.

Thanks for helping me.

Great tackle !! I can load up a flat surface in no time! ;o) Things seem to go smoother when my table is cleaned off and tidied. I'm still learning that lesson though. :o)

Jennifer said...

Awesome tackle! That's my hotspot too, that and one of my chairs. (Everything gets dumped off the table and into a chair so we can eat!) I NEED to clean out that chair, and I intended to do that for today's tackle, but didn't make it. Did a different one instead!

I thought all kitchen tables were supposed to look like that! ;-p

Great job! :-)

it looks great! I should find my lemon oil as well, but I usually keep a tablecloth on top. Not that it does anything to protect the finish, but it hides it fairly well. :)

Michelle said...

According to my husband I have these hotspots everywhere ... but I really don't!! LOL! Been working on them! Great job.

Donna said...
