I wish I was one of those ladies who had a naturally organized home. I truly need it, especially with as many moving parts as we have around here.
But it’s a weird cycle when organization’s not your gift. You need to get things organized before you can organize.
Who has time for that?
I don’t necessarily need a clean house; I just long to know where everything is: a place for everything and everything in its place.
I already have a place for everything. And I have five other people who sometimes decide a new place is in order.
How do you combat this???
No seriously, how?
We moved last year into a wonderful home that I love and adore. There is a lot of storage and there’s a lovely upstairs which we’ve dubbed the Kid Zone. I can shut the door to the noise and mess and voila! Peace and quiet.
Or as much quiet as four kids can muster during waking hours.
I long for the neatly organized offices and bathrooms and kitchens I see when peruse Pinterest. Are these for real? Do any of y’all live like this?
But then I realize I’m me and this isn’t my gift and while I will continue to strive to know where more of my stuff is, my creative side still needs just enough chaos, just enough mess to keep it real.
But I wouldn’t turn down a cleaning lady.
