In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Ready, Set . . . . .

I am about ready to start cleaning.  I have 3 families coming over on Saturday and need to have the main level  and basement cleaned.  I took some time last week to start decluttering, but while useful had a minimal impact on the visual appeal of the house.  Then our family got sick.   Now I have 3 days to get the house clean. 

Aaah!  I always have a grand plan of going from chaos to sparkling in a short period of time.  My first plan is to take  the garbage bag I should refill and walk around the house with it picking up things that should be tossed.    First, I need to get the kids to the bus. 

Wish me luck!

If your house is really a mess and a stranger comes to the door greet him with, “Who could have done this? we have no enemies”

Officially Messy

My house is officially messy.  It has been for a while, but in the last day or two it’s reached a point where it just bugs me.  The mess kind of sneaks up on me and then recently slapped me in the face how messy it was.

I think much of it comes from the fact that we had a lovely impromptu visit at a friend’s house.  It made me think about how I’d feel if they had done the same thing.  I would have loved to see them, but I would have been embarrassed by my house.   Too much clutter and dirty spaces to welcome them properly.


Hopefully it will give me motivation to deal with it and make some major improvements. Not only with it’s future state, but also with my cleaning routines.
