I could be hiding. Or just lost in the stuff.

I know, I know. I promised to write a little more frequently. I’ve started several posts, but still need to finish.

That’s the story of my life, people! I’m good at starting things, not always good at finishing! BUT, I’m a woman on a mission right now, and I’m GOING to finish. It’s just going to take a little while.

I’ve signed up and am now getting daily emails from the FlyLady, which is a good reminder to me each day to accomplish SOMETHING. Even if it’s not what she has on her list, I know the trouble spots in my house and am focusing on a few of those each day.

I’m making serious headway, but I have a long way to go in creating a sense of order in my home. I can’t even say restoring a sense of order, because it’s NEVER been here.

Just as my posts here tend to be all over the board, that rambling, scattered thought process you read? It’s ME. It’s who I am. I can start a sentence in my head, and not be able to finish it because I distract myself with 23 other thoughts in the middle and forget what the heck I was saying. 

Negative side to that is things like this:


And  this:


And even this:


These are pictures of the chaos in my life. The chaos I’ve created for myself. Furniture we can’t sit on because I’ve piled laundry into it instead of folding it and putting it away. A work surface I can barely function in because of my piles of random papers. A kitchen table we can’t eat at because I use it as my work surface.

Bless his heart, my husband tries. And puts up with. But this is the mess that I have created and allowed to happen. He is frustrated by it, and I’m overwhelmed by it. So, I’m dealing with it, in small, manageable bites.

Finding my home, CREATING my home, is pulling me away a bit from my blogging, but because you guys are awesome, I know you understand. Shoot, some of you may have even been here. At that point where you look around and go “What am I DOING?” So, I’m going to write when I can, and I’ll share my progress, and soon, I’m going to have a home that I’m not embarrassed to have people over in!

  3. If you think that's bad, you should see my mess. And no, I am not going to post pics of it! =) Since I decided to start home schooling and took on den leadership for my son's Cub Scout den, the house has taken a back seat. Actually, it's been shoved in the trunk. Okay, I'm going to clean now!
