Makeover Monday: back in the saddle

Take a good look, this only happens twice a year, if we're lucky. (This should make you feel good about yourself Ginnie)

Oh how I wish I were an innately organized sort of person.

But I'm not.

And so in order to retain even a glimmer of order in my life I have to make herculean efforts and be nearly OCD with myself.

And even then I miss the mark markedly.
Rather disheartening.

But there is a big difference between being cluttered and being dirty. And for the most part, our problem is the clutter.

Clean clutter!

Somehow the whole "toddler" thing seems to mean that I must lower the bar.....for clutter at least.

Can't possibly put away as fast as he sprinkles the house with "stuff".... and even the thought of trying sounds like a silly use of time and energy.

Ha, I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! I thought for a second that I some how clicked on my blog. I must say your wardrobe seems to have a little more splash of colors and patterns than mine.

Renn better come home fast before you get to the cupboards and start color coordinating and alphabetizing your canned foods.

Thanks for the post, it gave me a good laugh!

I'm not even going to post a picture of my closet... it just doesn't even compare to yours! So, knowing that should make YOU feel better, too! I admire that at least you are going semi-easy on yourself. Way to go for realizing your house just cannot ALWAYS be clean, particularly and especially when there is a toddler in the house.

So glad to know I'm not the only one who does that!
