Getting Organized...

Being organized has never seemed more challenging to me.

I'm not sure why. I've always been an organized person. Somehow my life has gotten out of my control in the last few months, and here I sit facing a new year - a new decade - feeling like I'm flying down a windy mountain road with a hole in my brake lines and less than the right amount of steering fluid.... so I'm still steering the car, but it takes more than the usual amount of effort.

And to top it off, it's Girl Scout cookie season.

My plan for this week was to clean up Christmas and get the house back in a semblance of every day order. My plan for NEXT week is to sit down and do the same for my writing schedule and my life.

Many bloggers seem to have set schedules for which days to blog about different aspects of their lives/careers/chaos... Medical Mondays on Lydia Kang's blog comes to mind as a great example. On Mondays, I know I can always go check out what cool weird medical mystery she's going to explain to us...

I'm working on it. I'm also working on setting a schedule for finishing my W.I.P.s, since just saying I want to finish it doesn't seem to make it so.

But, as I said, it's Girl Scout cookie time. And I'm taking the troop winter camping this weekend. So my other career (the non-mommy one) will have to wait until next week, because I still need to pack!


  1. I've had a hard time with organization too. I have a post ready to go about this. It's frustrating to me. Good luck with your WiP and cookie season (yum).

  2. I have a mild version of OCD, so I have to keep things organized... it's why Christmas evening the decorations were all put away and I was re-re-organizing the closet. Just thinking about falling out of the patter makes my sin itch.

    Good Luck with getting back into your normal state and with the WiP. Also, you now have me craving thin mints!

  3. I just cleaned 1 closet and I'm feeling so smug! (And ignoring the rest of my messy house...hee hee!)

    I wish I could buy some of your girl scout daughter would be in heaven! Good luck with the sale.

  4. Oh organization. My nemesis. Ah well. Good luck with your WiP when you get to it next week! Until then have fun with the girl scouts! Mmmm the lemon cookies...

  5. Organization has always been a challenge for me--that and overcoming procrastination!
