Do you ever get so overwhelmed that you can barely see straight ahead of you? Mountains of laundry, kids home for spring break, taxes, bills, family visiting, a disaster of a house, yard work, teaching a new class, and, oh yeah, writing! These are the things filling my days. And nights.
Sometimes I can remember what was for dinner the night before, or what we even did that morning! Time seems to blur and the days pass and there's nothing significant that is accomplished.
I hate that feeling! I like to check things off my lists. Of course, I have lists scattered all over the house, so I can't always find the one I'm looking for, but you get the idea. I like to accomplish things. Concrete things that show I've done something productive, made strides toward a goal, or at least put in the effort.
I've been lagging in the accomplishment arena lately. Organization is a big issue for me. I try. I envy those who are super organized. I have organization envy. But no matter what, I just can't seem to orchestrate my life or my house in the organized way I'd like. It's like it's not in my genes, only it IS in my genes. My dad is super organized. That's the only way he knows how to be. Why, oh why, didn't a smidgeon of that rub off on me?!
So that's my goal for the summer. Get my house, and my life, organized.
If you have any tips, I'd love to hear them!
