Well, my ultimate goal this fall is to get organized. It's tough when you have a family that is like a giant anchor trying to keep you from doing it (not consciously, of course) but I'm going to do what I can.
So, every single day, I plan to do SOMETHING to get my home organized.
Yesterday I felt lousy but while I was watching HGTV for 5 hours, I went through the giant pile of magazines I had. After that, I cleaned out two shelves of the linen closet in my master bedroom. I threw out a number of things.
Last week, I cleaned my entire basement. What a job that was!! Today I cleaned up the mouse that found my trap yummy. Bleck on that but it was nice that I could set the trap next to the wall and SEE it when I went downstairs. I haven't been able to see the walls in about 12 years!
Today - what should I do today? Hmm - I don't have a ton of time because of homeschooling and ending up doing a LOT of stuff on the church website but ....
Breaking news! I just got a call from hubby and with the crazy schedule tonight, I don't have to cook a big dinner since my big girls won't be home and he had lunch at 3 so he's not hungry and he has a meeting in 2 hours anyway. So I don't have to worry about squeezing in food shopping but will do it when I have more time. :)
OK - Back to organizing - what should I do today?? Hmmm - OK, I'm going to sort socks. :D Yeah, I know, exciting life but I have a huge laundry basket overflowing that needs to be dealt with. So tonight, after the kiddies go to bed, I will sort socks. Yeah!!
I will admit though - tomorrow I most likely will not do much since I have an all day meeting for the church staff. I'll be lucky to feed my family. ;) OK so I will modify my goal to this: 6 out of 7 days I will organize my home.
