Since I was gone for a little over a week, and we were all gone for our vacation there is just a long list of things to be done around the house. We are more or less done with any big plans we have for the summer so now is the time to just dig in and start thinking about those projects. Last night I picked up a bunch of big plastic totes to try and re-organize some of the toys in our living room and move some of the stuff in our basement into better (read: more waterproof) storage. I must be channeling my mom or something because I was pretty excited about it. Tonight I am definitely going to do some more cleaning and organizing, I have just not decided exactly where in the house I want to start. Always more to do.
As a kid I was always pretty disorganized, much to the frustration of my tidy mother. I inherited my dad’s affinity for piling stuff up in my spaces, and still have not totally shaken those habits. Still, the older I get, the more I find myself appreciating when there is a little more order. No need for immaculate, but it is really nice to be able to know that things have a particular home and that our place looks more like a home than an explosion of stuff.
