If you haven't noticed, I have been a little MIA this week. I am currently attempting to tackle my disturbingly long to do list. How did my list get so long, you ask? Well it's half from being easily distracted and half from being lazy. Being nearly 6 months pregnant and dealing with a two year old can really wear a girl out. Especially when said two year old refuses to pee on the potty even though she sits on it for over an hour a day but that is a whole different discussion. So getting back on track my jam-packed days have led to lazy nights of sitting in front of the television even though there is usually nothing that I really care to watch on. This leads to semi paying attention to a movie that I have seen 20 times already while simultaneously looking at pinterest, facebook, blogs and countless online shops.
This week I vowed that I would get off my lazy butt and actually get things done. I have done pretty well so far. My first task was a huge closet that is in our kitchen. I tend to throw various odds and ends in there plus it houses many important items such as my camera equipment, sewing machine and years worth of pictures. I'm almost done clearing the thing out and I started on Monday so it has taken me more time than I had expected. We are going to demo the built-in desk and shelves that are currently inside and put a new desk area and better and more attractive storage area in. We also want to remove the doors on the closet to make the area into more of a storage/office alcove. Big task, I know but we've been talking about it since we moved in 3 years ago and I'm sick of just talking. It's time to start doing.
Want to see what I've gotten myself into?
Cute, huh? I have pretty much all the stuff you see here sorted through and temporary put in what will be the new baby's room. I figured if I put it in there it would give me incentive to get the rest done as soon as possible since we obviously have to start working on nursery soon. I have pretty much all the junk you can see in the picture cleared out but now I need to go through the drawers which I am not looking forward to because there is a bunch of paperwork in one of them that I need to sort. That's what I'm off to do now since I have about an hour and a half before I have to leave to pick Doodle up from preschool. Wish me luck!
Oh my! I swear I have a closet exactly like that. It scares the crap out of me! Good luck mama, peace be with you! Lol)ReplyDelete
Maybe you just inspired me to clean & organize mine too? Maybe.
Have a great weekend Mal! Don't work too hard)
