Are you living in what Marla Scilly, aka The Fly Lady, calls CHAOS? (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome). Well then, join the club there are thousands, perhaps even millions of us!

I have struggled with organization in almost every area of my life for, well, my entire life. By starting this blog I hope to encourage others that they too can get and stay organized!

While it will probably embarrass my children for me to air the dirty laundry here, in full color photos, if it helps just one person along their own journey to getting organized and staying that way, it will have been worth it!

Still Trying!

front room before

OK the past 3 weeks have been the craziest work weeks ever. The boss went on vacation (I get to be in charge when she's gone) and all h*ll broke out. Two staff out with a family emergency, fired another and another one quite. I actually worked over 50 hours each week. I NEVER! get overtime!

So of course the house is in worse shape than before. I have managed to do a fairly good job getting caught up in the kitchen and decided to have a go at my front room. It's an L shape and this pic if from standing at the base of the L looking left.

Between doing a lot of other things like playing with new chicks, finishing 32 pints of applesauce, doing some laundry plus the regular chores I managed to do two 15 minute sessions in here, mostly the strip between the living room and the front door. So at least I can walk through without having to turn sideways!
So maybe one day soon I can get some more junk out of here....
