the Trigger-happy housewife

Bringing the constantly fantastic and painfully insane together daily!

Not the, “I’m so cute.” kind! It’s the, “Get your girl on!” kind!

This weekend God blessed me with energy and focus. The FOCUS is a big deal! Only, it wasn’t really “focus” as much as it was divinely guided multitasking. Seriously, I did the laundry (which is a mini miracle in itself) and I completed the dishes and (with the kids help) I straightened the house and ORGANIZED MY MAKEUP. I didn’t just organize it – I got rid, cleaned and then put it all away! I know!

See, my wife started talking about getting me a vanity, a place for me and all my girlie to exist in our bedroom without over taking her. lol I am a little resistant to change. (I say resistant because I used to say, “I don’t like change.” What I have learned is that change makes me VERY uncomfortable, however if I give it a chance I do like it!) I was a little miffed  at the thought of being kicked off the dresser (where I usually set up camp to do my makeup.) As I thought about it I started to get excited.

Then the mirror came, a neighbor donated a lot of things to my church for sale. The mirror was one of them, so I took it for my vanity (and paid my church! I wouldn’t just take it. I forked over twenty bucks for that mirror, a pair of shoes and four coffee cups!) The mirror really got my creativity flowing and I decided to surprise my wife by take the initiative. I really wanted to get it done all on my own. Once I actually started to move into my vanity, I got all sorts of “in order!”

The wildest thing is that this vanity makes me feel like if I had a craft room where everything had a place that I would SO TOTES be able to keep it straight!
