Crazy Organization





I spent a good portion of my day, yesterday, doing laundry. I have been putting off doing it because the task just seemed too daunting. I hate it when I allow things to pile up only to become overwhelmed because I have let it get too bad. I feel so much better when I just buck up and get 'er done, but I really have to be motivated. Yesterday was just one of those days when I said, nuffs enuff!! I continuously switched wet clothes to the dryer and folded and put them away. Which part is your least favorite? I hate hanging clothes. I also strongly dislike folding wrinkled clothes. I sometimes put things in the dryer only to let them sit until they are wrinkled and then I must use more electricity to unwrinkle them. Again, I get overwhelmed.
I did get my messy closet somewhat organized. I took stuff out that I can put on rummage and put other stuff in that had been sitting out in my bedroom looking cluttered. That felt really good. My bedroom should be a sanctuary, but it looks more like a storage room/tool shed. We really need a tool shed. Just another project to get done. Since our home has continually been under renovation for the last 2 years, we have kept the tools out on a shelf in our room. They are away from little hands that could be harmed by them, but still in a very out there place in our bedroom. I feel like calling Oprah and asking her to send Nate my way to help us redecorate our bedroom. I wish I had taken the embarassing "before" pictures so you could see what a true disaster area my bedroom was. However, I was too ashamed to reveal my secret stow away to anyone. So, I have only let you see the "afters". It's a long way from where I want it to be, but, TRUST ME, it's a major improvement!!!

Hey cool, I didn't know your bedroom was red.. it's looks fine to me. You've seen my before and I don't have an after cause I haven't been motivated enough to clean it up.
You go girl!!

Your closet is HUGE. Good job tackling your room...and taking pictures. It is wonderful to be able to see floor space and a ceiling fan so clean. I hate doing laundry every day...maybe one day a week I have off but I do it every day. Today it was because the dog barfed on the bathroom rug...so I gathered stuff to throw in the wash with it. I brush my teeth every day and don't weary of doing that...what's my problem?

I know. I guess because bad breath will cause people to run in the other direction and dirty laundry can be hidden behind a door and kept a secret. I don't wear dirty clothes, but I wait until I have nothing else to wear before I do laundry!
