We all have that one thing (maybe more than one for some of us!) in our house that is driving us crazy. Laying in bed at night, you are thinking about it. First thing in the morning, it pops back into your mind. In the middle of a conversation, someone says something and an image of your issue floats through your line of vision. Some of us toss and turn all night long because it is wearing heavy upon us. Some may even dream about it. I know a few years ago, the mess in my house tormented me so greatly that I had nightmares of unannounced, horrified, condescending visitors!

Lately my “crazy spot” has been the couch in the library. A few weeks ago someone was at my house, and we were sitting on the couch. In the course of the visit, their pencil rolled between the cushions. Offering to get it, I reached my hand under the couch. I expected to feel the cool touch of the mechanical pencil’s plastic; instead I got crumbs, change and a paperclip. Pretending not to find these things, I pulled out the pencil hoping it wouldn’t be covered in loose debris. Thankfully it was not. We left after that and I didn’t have time to deal with the mess I had felt. I haven’t really had any time since then to deal with it, and yet now it’s tormenting me.

Well, today’s the day we do something about it! This week’s Weekend Warrior Challenge is to tackle your “crazy spot.” Look at your calendar and schedule an adequate amount of time to get in there and destroy your crazy. I’m keeping it simple today so there are no excuses. Just get in there and get busy!

As some of you have asked for this, I will try to give you a little bit of a preview to some of my Upcoming Posts. I may not catch everything, but here’s hoping! Tuesday I will be discussing the importance of wardrobe selection in regards to household maintenance and Wednesday, I have a delicious recipe you won’t want to miss!

Meanwhile, what’s your “crazy spot”? How long will it take you to conquer the chaos and reclaim the space? Be sure to stop back by and update the rest of us on your progress.
