I have always considered myself to be a fairly organized person, that is until I met my husband. Not only did he spend time in the army, but with his family genes, he has GREAT opinions when it comes to cleanliness and order. Not to say I’m a slob or come from a family of slobs, but our family motto’s were just different. In my house, the saying was “that’s ok, if you mess it up, you can clean it up”. In his house, the saying was “if you don’t mess it up, there’s nothing to have to clean up”….needless to say this has been a “fun” battle for us since we were married just over a yr ago. It has made me realize that my perception of being organized was just that…a perception. I have good intentions, just not the follow through. I am a structured person, but I am also conflicted with a minor case of unofficially diagnosed ADD (something my family is convinced is a family trait) so really its not all my fault.
With that said, as I venture into motherhood (which means only another distraction), I have realized how it is time to unclutter my soul, my mind, and my closet in an effort to not always feel 2 steps behind, but more like 5 steps ahead. I know this will be a long journey, one I’m sure my husband wishes will speed up, but a quest I am eager to conquer. So, with my questions and your insight, I look forward to learning a lot on this journey.
