For me, the absolute best thing about working on this site is the emails I get from fellow Penelopes. It’s so nice to know we all have a tribe and we understand each other so well.
I’m going to be sharing some of these emails with you from time to time, starting with this fantastic one from Angela, a true Penelope.
Here’s what she says:
I thought of all the Penelopes out there as I mulled over something I did that made me feel so accomplished (yet embarrassed to admit) this weekend.
As I proceeded through the normal, weekly cleaning tasks around the house, I noticed the big cardboard box under the laundry room sink. It holds all of my English Bull Dog’s milk bones. The site (and smell) were enough to send me into my organizational mode.
I quickly grabbed the car keys, headed up to the nearest store where I could purchase a large Tupperware bin with a secure seal (to hinder the stench of doggie treats), and then proceed to line the treats up in rows within the bin.
I looked at it and felt great to have made the most of the space, but then wondered, who organizes dog bones? Then I realized, Penelopes do! It’s so comforting to know that I’m not alone in my pursuits of peace in organizational tasks.
Just wanted to share,
Thanks, Angela. You’re so right. It IS comforting to know that organizing your dog’s bones is not crazy. It’s absolutely, perfectly sensible!
Do you have a Penelope Project you’d like to share? Send me an email, including a photo or two, and I may share your sweet, compulsive story with the rest of the Penelope world.
