So my life is a mess. I admit it. To some, I seem very organized but I'm far from it. We have too much stuff - stuff we really don't need. So I'm embarking on a project. I am going to commit to doing something to organize my life each day of the week, taking Sunday off. It doesn't matter if it's just straightening a drawer or cleaning a whole garage - SOMETHING must be done each day.
Today was my bedroom. Well, a corner of the bedroom. I am cleaning from my bed, over through my nightstand, through a giant pile of things (that I've since cleaned out and moved the bookshelf to this area), around the bend, to the bookshelf (moved), and then to my dresser. As I said, I moved the bookshelf and I got one of those plastic drawer things to hold my bras since they wouldn't fit in my dresser so they just ended up - everywhere. Now they are stored away. I also cleaned off the bookshelf and took off books that I don't want to keep and will bring them to church to give away. I sorted through a bunch of paperwork and have a pile to shred and another pile that went into the trash. I was able to vacuum this side of my room and I feel good. I still need to finish the stuff in front of the dresser but now it's my time to go ride. :D
But I promise myself that I will do this daily so that I can have some semblance of order in my life. Oh PLEASE God - let me stick to this!
