    I never started. Remember Andy Rooney and his office/ desk? I can say he was neat.

    Not me. There are too many things I have to have, no purse is big enough!

    I stopped carrying a purse after my shoulder surgeries. My fanny pack carries my keys, cards, phone and sunglasses. Love it. And I don’t have to worry about someone trying to grab my purse. And I don’t have to worry about getting the organizing bug. lol

    And this is bad news? Keep on organizing, Cathy!! Maybe you’ll finally use the $563 of organizing bins that you bought a while ago!

    I try to carry a purse as seldom as possible. I usually wear jeans, so my phone, keys and money fit in my pockets. Unfortunately, when I’m with kids, I usually have to take a purse.

    Hello Cathy clan! I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Why does Cathy need help for the organizing “bug” she’s FINALLY caught? Why is that such a bad thing??? I try to keep all my stuff organized these days because I’ve been on the other end and never being able to find things I just KNEW I had — somewhere(!) — was frustrating beyond belief! Turning utter chaos into complete order isn’t a very fun, fast or easy thing to do but in the end, it’s all been worth it to me whenever I can find exactly what I want as soon as I need it. I LOVE BEING ABLE TO DO THAT!!!!!




    Hi, rgcviper!


    lightenup: My deepest sympathy to Jr. over the death of her friend’s father. How is she doing? Was she close to the father? I know that when I was that age, I spent so much time at my friends’ houses that their parents were like 2nd parents to me so a sudden death(?) like that would have been very upsetting to me, too. Give her our love and tell her we’re all thinking about her and hope she’s doing okay.


    Hello and Happy Wednesday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone’s having a really great day today!

    As always, thanks, GretchensMom and! Jr is okay, I think. She seemed a little overwhelmed yesterday because she didn’t know what to say to her friend, or what to do for her. Heck, I’m an adult, and I’m not sure what to say either.

    Jr didn’t know the father at all because she hasn’t gone over to her friend’s house at all. We are pretty busy outside of school and her friend isn’t even in the school directory, so she hasn’t had much of a chance. But Jr plays with her a lot at school and I hear Jr talk about her often.

    The school sent home a letter to all the 4th grade parents to inform them of the tragedy (without naming the girl) in case their child was suddenly upset or questioning if their parents were going to die also. Jeez, I didn’t even think of that.

    Anyway, we ended up buying her friend a gift of a keepsake box with some stickers to decorate it with in case she wanted to save things in it that reminded her of her dad or whatever is valuable to her, a journal to write in (I recommended she write about her dad or how she was feeling), and Jr made her an origami heart. I hope it was okay.
    My dad died when I was 20 and it feels like yesterday after thinking about this poor girl for 2 days now. The sadness never seems to go away, just fades some.

    It’s so true lightenup — my aunt told me that her father died at age 101 and it was really really hard for her. They are our parents and it is really hard to lose them — especially when you are really young. It’s really good that you are talking to Jr and helping her to process it.
