I think I'm an intelligent person, but when I see disorder, I just want to go on vacation or read a book, or go for a run, or blog...
Nevertheless, this week I've turned our junk drawer into an organized drawer of miscellaneous things. I now know where to go for the finger-nail clippers, post-it notes, batteries, scissors, tape, etc. It's a beautiful thing. So, when I had company over for book club, my floor may not have been vacuumed, but when someone needed I pen, I could get it, and a pad of post-it notes, confidently, without unloading the whole drawer. This is progress people. I see order in my future.
Last night I cleaned out and organized our downstairs TV, DVD/video game drawers. Again, more progress.
Also, since the new year, I have created and maintained a workout schedule. I feel awesome and really think I'll be looking awesome in the future.
I've also set my life up on Google calendar, which I can access from my phone. It's convenient, and now I feel like I have a little more control over my life. I can see how full my days are and just say no sometimes. I am busy with good things, important things. I still haven't figured out how to schedule cleaning in, but I'm confident it will come.
Little Boo flirted with potty training this week, but she has a lot of attitude, takes hours to pick out underwear, wants to dress herself, so after four days of steady progress, Boo refused to have any potty time. And if you you don't sit on the potty, Mama will not allow the panties. We are taking a break.
