The cold weather is getting on my nerves!
I'm in Florida . . . it is not supposed to be cold!
We should be warming up by Friday :)
In the meantime, it has been a time of working on all those things I have been putting off since I am finally starting to get rid of this cold that took all my energy. I'm revisiting the idea of joining up with the Fly Girls again . . . you know, they teach you how to organize your life and put you on somewhat of a schedule to get your housework and clutter under control. They were starting to help me the last time I tried, but OMG they sent so much emails that I got overwhelmed and quit.
Niecy Nash and the "Clean House" crew would have a really good time with my house. I can see it now, Niecy with a huge red flower in her hair waving her perfectly manicured finger at me . . . "you should be ashamed of yourself girl . . . how did you let this happen? . . . hmmmmmm?"
Well, clutter just happens if you don't control it effectively. Moving a pile of stuff from one room to another doesn't help. It just takes an organized mess, jumbles it up with another mess and then you can't find anything. We did that . . . took boxes from several rooms into another. Since two of us were moving the stuff around, I lost track of some of the stuff!
Isn't it funny how cluttered piles end up like an archeological dig or a time capsule of a phase in your life? One of the hardest things for me to control is paper. As I gather up and sort everything out, I am finding remnants of the attempt to organize.
This time I mean to finally get organized! Once organized, it is easy to stay that way if everything has its place. It is getting the stuff into their place . . . aye!!
I'm starting a page for my website on getting organized . . . in an attempt to organize myself :) I'd love some feedback on how you managed to get your house organized, links to blogs devoted to getting organized like the Fly girls . . . or are they called the Fly Ladies?
Are you a pack rat like me or a neatnic?
I totally used the word organized too many times :)
