My house is out of control. I really, really, really need to work on getting our stuff in order. It is seriously weighing down on me more and more each day. Granted, I could take the time I am using to write all of this out and use it to get something in order, but my philosophy/mind set in a lot of things is to either patch stuff or do it 110%...and it is so far beyond patching right now it's not even funny. Plus, we have nobody coming over for at least two days so I don't have to patch anything right now. I feel crippled by the amount of organizing, sorting, and cleaning I want to do. The problem is, as I have stated previously, we want to move in the next year or so which means I do not want to buy anything to make the organization work. So I just throw the stuff in different places, kind of hoping it will go away. There is legitimately some stuff I could box and store for the next year to two years that we don't need right now, but then what?!? And all of the deep cleaning projects I want to do are kind of challenging to do with three little ones that I want to spend time with and to take places. AND I don't want to spread it all out over several weeks, I want it all done in a couple days. Like a Mommy retreat that is complete with a catharsis of having a clean, functional, and organized house. And there is the key...that it isn't even about stuff never being messy or there being some clutter...we have three kids three and under...it is about this space being functional...and I don't feel that it is.
