Are you someone who is organized, clean and usually has your shit together?
Yea me too....until now.
The last couple of weeks I cannot seem to pull myself together and it's making me angry and very stressed out.
You see...I'm in this strange limbo in several aspects of my life...
Mike and I are planning to put our condo up for sale this spring.
We've been talking to our realtor since right before Christmas.
She's asked that we get everything organized, cleaned up and pack away all items we don't use on a daily basis so we can start the photography process for marketing our condo.
Why can't I get this done??
Since January 1st Mike and I have been sick on and off (who hasn't) and our weekends have been spent laying on the couch rather than tackling home organizing projects.
It's driving me insane.
Also...I normally like to keep my house decorated nicely....but I have to keep telling myself...."Don't do that new home decor project you saw on Pinterest...it's pointless - you might be moving soon! You're supposed to be taking things OFF the walls not adding more stuff!!"
Does anyone else know how I feel?
Also...you all know that I've been working for myself 2 days a week since December....
....Well my home office looks like an episode of hoarders....
I'd show you a picture but I'm way too embarrassed.
Our wedding gifts are all over the room and it looks like I work in a Crate & Barrel factory rather than as a marketing consultant.
Also...I think every piece of junk mail since I moved to my condo 3 years ago is also floating around my home office....but I can't seem to get it cleaned up.
This is SO unlike me.
This is my last week working alone at my actual work office.
I need to spend this week organizing all of the files on my work computer, getting documents ready to train my replacement and take home all of my little tchotchkes and knick knacks I have on my desk.
Do you think I've started this?
You know the answer.
I'm hoping once Mike beats this flu he has (and assuming I don't catch it) I'll be able to get my house and my life back in order.
Who knows...maybe this will allow for some interesting blog content if I find some unique ways to organize my life.
If I do I'll share....if you never hear about this again you can assume things aren't going well and you can plan an intervention.
Wish me luck.
