The Comic Book Project is Done!

Four months ago, I was asked by a client to organize his massive comic book collection, so that it could be appraised and donated to his alma mater.  I vaguely remember the first day that I entered the attic and saw ALL the boxes.  Initially, we were going to focus on only the Marvel comic books, which was 85% of all the boxes.  As I started to browse, I discovered that in some of boxes the comic books were in numeric order and he had already logged many of them.  However, after further investigation, to my dismay, we discovered that # 1, although the comics was logged, we did not know what specific box that the comic was in and # 2, a lot of the boxes had a mixture of all different Marvel characters & others that needed to be sorted.

Today was Appraisal Day!  There were 70 boxes of Marvel & Non-Marvel (DC Comics, Image, Dark Horse, etc.) comic books and all the boxes were numbered & labeled by character. OVER 20,000 comic books were sorted in numeric or alphabetical order, duplicates have been purged and the boxes were organized. Ultimately, we developed a Comic Book Guide Sheet by box #, comic book character and a brief description of the contents.  The appraiser was able to identify very quickly what he wanted to look at and where it was located.  I must say that this project has truly taken my professional organizing skills to a Whole New Level!! 

OH MY GOD! The Comic Book Project is Done!

September is Here!

It’s Done!

Order, Organize & Obedience is UPLOADED!!  OMG!  I thought that this moment would NEVER come.  As I mentioned briefly in my last post, this eBook has meant so much more than will ever meet the eye.  When the Lord told me to write this book almost a year ago, although the content via my blog started over eight years ago, I could not fathom the magnitude of the lesson that I was being taught during this process.  You’ll be pleased to know that much of the book is a lot more upbeat.  It’s a great mix of my life, my career, my business and more. But now that the book is done, I must tell you that I uploaded the book on Monday and on Tuesday, I cried.

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you [me] will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:   Philippians 1:6 KJV

Although, I thought that this chapter of my life was over, once I acknowledged what the Lord was showing me, I believed that if I did my part that my son and I would be on our way to a new beginning (although now I realize there was really nowhere for us to go).  For the past 25 years, my son and I have struggled to define what our mother-son relationship should look like.  Unfortunately, we continued to discover that our definitions was based on different perspectives and different expectations. So when God told me to open the door, I understood, when my son walked through the door, I understood, but when the Lord closed the door, I didn’t understand and I cried.  But on yesterday, I heard God say to me, through Bishop TD Jakes’ message, entitled “Blind Spot” and Pastor Steven Furtick’s, entitled “Trust Me, I’m Trying” today,  that I must take off the blinders, stop trying and just Trust Him.

A brief summary of what God showed me is now hidden in a small section within a chapter near the end of the book.  As God writes my next chapter, I hope that I will be able to share it with you one day.  In the meantime, the release of Order, Organize & Obedience is less than SEVEN days away.  I hope that you have an opportunity to read it and please let me know what you think…

It’s Always a Good Time to Downsize!

It’s really too hot and humid in the DMV to stay outside (unless you’re lying by the pool :-D!), so it’s a great time to get rid of all the unnecessary items that you just don’t want to take with you into the next season of your life.  Clutter simply weighs you down, so let’s lighten your life a little!

We’ve noticed that there are a number of Baby Boomers, like myself, who are downsizing, rather they are going to move now or not.  We are realizing that our children just don’t want our stuff, so why hold on to it?  Our young generations are more apt to move to find better opportunities, wherever life takes them.

Whatever your reason, it’s always a good time to downsize!

Currently, I’m working with a client on her entire home and yesterday, we were in the kitchen.
