One of my favorite blogging buddies left me the following comment on my last post.
"You are way too organized, you make me sick!"
It is so not the truth.
The reason that I am so interested in getting things in ship shape right now is that I am normally not that organized. You see, if you were to drop by my house unannounced, you would find the majority of the house, the public areas if you will, to be clean. However, were you to look deeper, you would find that the hidden areas such as closets, my master bathroom, kitchen drawers, etc. are not so clean. I tend to be an "out of sight out of mind" cleaner. I am a packrat and keep way too much stuff. So is my husband. As a result, most of our closets are poorly organized and filled to the brim. We even have what I call a "Closet of Death" downstairs, named so because you never know what might fly out at you if you dare to chance opening it.
Plus, at 37+ weeks pregnant, measuring 39 weeks, with feet so swollen they tingle and itch, a lot of my list is comprised of good intentions that might never get realized. I will get a spurt of energy here and there, but it is quickly spent. The only thing that I got accomplished today was creating a baby drawer in the kitchen and doing a couple of loads of laundry - one of which is folded but not put away!
So, you see, my dark and dirty secret is that I am not organized, not really. In the coming weeks, I will have all manner of family and friends in my home, helping us as we adjust to life with Little Man outside of the womb. These lovely people have offered to clean, do laundry, stock our groceries, etc. I am worried that if I don't organize these hidden areas, they will be discovered. I am pretty sure the world would keep spinning, but I am not sure that I would survive the embarrassment!
