Sunday Scripture

See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the deserts and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 44:19

How long is too long?

I am trying really hard to get my basement area organized.  I have managed to put cabinets on my side (don't you love that we have the basement split into his and hers), and I am in the process of cleaning out the stuff that I don't use anymore.

I hate to admit it but because of blogging it is so much harder for me to get rid of stuff.

I see something that has been lying there for years and think no, no I can't get rid of that because as soon as I do, I will see something on pinterest made with that exact same thing.

Is it just me?  Do you do that?

Anyway,  while sifting through my treasures, I decided to be brave and discard the stuff that I have no plans for.  

For example,  I have some bathroom fixtures from our board and batten project, that I was holding onto in case I needed it.  Then there is the wooden shelf that I saved that has bows on it. It use to hang in Baby girls room when she was teeny tiny.  I have more wine bottles than you can possibly imagine.  No kidding!!  First I was going to do a bottle tree, then I started coming up with other things to do so now I have more bottles than a winery.  (Well, not quite, but I have a lot.)

So, I decided that I would just be a big girl and sort through all that stuff and take it to Goodwill.

How long is too long to hang onto shelves?  books?  high school annuals?  my kids toys?

Am I the only one who is a closet hoarder?

What happened to customer service?

OK, I want to start off this story by saying I have had people tell me that insurance companies don't really help you out anymore when it comes to accident claims, but I honestly just thought that those people had crappy insurance.

I was wrong.

I would also like to say that I have filed claims before and not had any problems at all.  Frankly all I had to do was call them, tell them there was an accident and they did the rest.

They looked at the car, which was then either fixed or trashed.

The settlement was fairly quick.

No one stalling.

Not quite like that now.  One of our kids was in a multiple car accident, and we can't seem to get anywhere with our insurance company.

Tell me, when you are my insurance company, shouldn't you be looking out for me?

What has changed so much that you can't even guide us in the right direction?

Mr. Wonderful has tried to call someone for the past week and she won't return his calls, you know what else, she wanted a copy of the police report which he sent her and she won't open it.  

Meanwhile we are one car down in a household where we all need cars.  Not an ideal situation.  So today we try again, to see if we can communicate with ANYONE at the insurance company.


What happened to the customer is always right?

Things are shaping up!

Mr. Wonderful and I have really been trying to make our basement look a little more presentable. 

After I got rid of some equipment that I had he started looking for some cabinets to at least make it look a little more organized.

It is slowly coming together.

Inspired by Pinterest

Over the weekend I decided to finish a project that I started several months ago, but I got sidetracked and then I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with it.

Until, I saw something on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.

This is how it came out.

It's adorable isn't it?  And to think it started out as a ceiling medallion.

Now she hangs proudly on the front door.

Linking up HERE!
