I wish I had a nickel for every time I started out a day with the resolve I feel right now: It’s time to get this house in serious order.
To give you a taste of what I am talking about, this vision currently greets you when you look to the left after just entering our front door:
No doubt I will look back on this post in which I am currently embarrassing myself and wish I hadn’t hit “publish.” C’est la vie.
This embarrassment is my attempt to get my rear in gear and clean up this house. For, sadly, the majority of the junk cluttering up these spaces is mine. I am really, really bad about not putting something in its proper place when I am done with a thing. Now, admittedly, this is partly because I haven’t taken the time to properly organize this house. It desperately needs that from the top down. I am going to get things in order. It’s going to happen.
Anyway, after saying I wasn’t going to post the white room, here it is. I love it. J didn’t paint the trim….it was already white in this room and the dining room, even though we have the wood trim in the other parts of the first floor:
I need a better system. And to be fair to myself, there’s no telling how long my thyroid has been in a hyper state….probably a while given my energy levels. But I think there’s no small amount of ADD going on in my brain or something because looking over these photos, everything here is either mine directly or something I am responsible for putting away. The boys are good at keeping up with their things, thankfully, with a little guidance.
It’s time to Google home organizational systems and methods. I can do better than this.
