Organizing

Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up. ~A. A. Milne

You guys know I'm always venting about getting more organized and such. Well, the last few days have been a veritable windstorm of chaos in the guise of organization. First we went to IKEA, because I simply couldn't get organized without these shelves that I've been dying to own ever since Lola introduced me to them close to 2 years ago. Not only are they utterly chic, there is so much stuff you can put on them in so many ways that I have extra shelves with nothing but tchotckes on them just to fill the space!

After that, I broke out my tools including my very own automatic screwdriver and built the damn shelves all by my sweet self in less than an hour. That's one thing I love about buying furniture---you get to build it and feel all cool when it's done.

Moving right along, I finally attacked the mound of boxes that we've been just waffling past the last month.It's amazing how you can get used to living in a house full of boxes, in fact utilizing them for tables and desks...lol. One by one, I eliminated the contents and broke the boxes down leaving nothing that wasn't needed in our new home. Have I griped yet about how packrat-ish we both are?

Anyway, the reason I'm blogging today is to let you all know that I'm alive and that there is no reason to keep anything in your life that you haven't used in 3 years. No reason at all.

Hope you all are having a great week.

You an idiot! haven't I been telling you about not keeping anything you are not using theory for the last five years. And why were you not so energetic about unpacking when we lived together. Can I ship the rest of your crap to you now?

Even the current beau hails from the land of IKEA-ism ;)
