I think my motivation is finally coming back. Maybe I’m caught up on sleep . . . or maybe it was the visit to the chiropractor . . . or both? Whatever it was, I’m finally feeling better, and I’m back at it.
One thing that made me feel better was finally hiring a bookkeeper. Being a one-woman business, I’ve grown to the point where I just can’t do everything all by myself anymore, but I was too stubborn to admit it. My Cowboy and my youngest daughter finally badgered me enough to make me take the leap.
I gathered up my entire stack of papers for this year, and handed them off to her to take care of. You have no idea how much better I feel just for having done that one thing! Such a huge relief!
I also managed to work some more on my closet, although it’s still not finished.
And I started THIS, to help use up some of the scrap stash:
While I was digging through things looking for a paint brush, I ran across this that my daughter had given me when she moved:
While I have never owned 18 purses all at once in my entire life, I figured it could come in handy for hanging things besides bags. So I mounted it on the back side of the door in the room where my longarm will eventually be residing. As soon as I finish the floor in that room . . . oh, the lengthy to-do list!
I’m not sure exactly what I’ll hang there yet, but at least it’s ready!
One thing I’ve noticed about all this organizing, is that things are looking less organized as I go. I’m hoping that it’s just the “it has to get worse before it can get better” phenomenon, and that it’ll eventually head the other way. Will it? Have you noticed that? Or is it just me?
This week’s task is another repeat, simply because it needs repeating:
I know we’ve done this twice already, but it never has quite the contagious effect I envision it having, so I still have 4 more drawers to clean out just in the cabinet in my sewing room!
Here’s the one I’ve chosen for this week:
As usual, I see several things that belong somewhere else, and there’s probably a few things I could get rid of completely.
How about you?
Do you still have at least one drawer that could use a good organizing? If not, how about another shelf that needs attention? I have plenty of both — maybe you do, too.
Let me know how it’s going!
