OK, so my life isn’t necessarily a mess.
I’ve got a great hubby, who has been more than patient with my crazy schedule these last few weeks…
Adorable (most of the time) kids…
Really cute shoes (that don’t hurt my feet!)…
Great friends (Hi Trisha!) who throw great birthday parties — even if you fall asleep during cake and presents…
And a job I am loving.
Bonus: My marathon training is going great (despite skipping the gym this morning…shhhh) and we are leaving for vacation in ONE WEEK! YAY!
But something’s gotta give, right? I present to you with my mess (and this is just half of it)…
When we put in the new floors we moved EVERYTHING to our guest room. Apparently it’s staying for an extended vacation.
Ok, so I COULD be going through this CRAP right now. Sorting it. Throwing masses and masses of toys away. But I’m sitting here writing this post and watching for SYTYCD to start. Clearly my priorities are in order.
Actually, we are hiding our crap right now (seriously, right of the house is pretty empty – it’s wonderful) because we don’t have anywhere to PUT this stuff.
Despite being pretty Type A about everything else in my life – organization is not my strong suit. Actually, I’m one of those weird people who seems absolutely cluttered, but I know where everything is. And I put it there for a purpose. Except right now is a LITTLE too messy for my tastes. Yes mom, even THIS is stressing ME out.
I’m hoping to find some solutions this weekend. Maybe some big baskets where I can hide the toys we do keep (Oh yeah – there’s going to be a MAJOR toy throw away) and help rein in the tornado of life.
I hope I can show you pictures of my perfectly organized house soon.
A girl can always dream.
What’s your secret to organizing and keeping your house/apartment clean?? Oh, and does anyone own a Shark Vac-n-Steam or the Bissell version? I’m trying to decide which one to buy!!
