In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Slacking off

I have been slacking off on house work lately.   I can’t blame it on time, lack of support, or the kids.   I’ve been lazy.  There were opportunities when it wouldn’t have taken that much longer to quickly get something done before relaxing or when I could have done something while I was talking with my husband. 

Here’s to trying to get back on track.  I need to step up my game with exercise and cleaning.  There is always an excuse if I want to find it.  Happy cleaning!

I loved this discussion about purpose and sharing. I haven’t decided exactly how I can apply this to organizing and cleaning, but I’m working on that.  Or there may not be some magical purpose or solution and I just have to suck it up and do it even if I don’t like it.

Weekend To Do List

  • Exercise at the gym
  • Get Groceries
  • Sweep floor
  • Sort Papers
  • Clean Bathrooms

Honestly my attempt at my to do list was lame.  I did enjoy some mellow time with the family.  We played board games and also went ice skating.  We washed a pile of clothes (s0me of which still need to be put away).   Off to put on a TED talk and one final productive burst before bed.  Early morning.

Too Soon for Resolutions

I am seeing post after post about upcoming goals and reviews of 2013.    I’ve made resolution and have used this chunk of time of between Christmas and New Year’s to reflect in past years.  However, this year I’m not feeling it.  I’m not sure what I’m doing tomorrow and this weekend—-let alone all of 2014. 

I tend to have the same types of goals from year to year.  Organizing and Fitness.  I will continue to work on both of those and make progress.  We are currently redoing our closet and am working on the organization that comes with that project. 

For now I’m off to watch tv, drink tea, and fold clothes.
