Getting started

Last week I commented about difficulty in getting over reasons to stall on Create a Connection. I'm happy to say that I managed to get started this weekend. On Saturday I worked quite a bit, but felt like I'd gotten nowhere. It was so disheartening to look at the house before I went to bed and see basically the same disorder I'd seen in the morning.

Sunday was full of errands and other things, so I didn't even attempt to continue. I was feeling pretty poorly about my ability to get organized and run a better household.

Monday morning was another day off. I slept in, and my husband brought me breakfast in bed. I got up, energized and feeling optimistic. We all worked together in the family room and made a huge difference. We sorted and organized art supplies, chose some toys to donate, and even cleaned the refrigerator.

We still have a long way to go, but I'm in a better frame of mind to see that it can't all be done on one day, and that it does pay to do what you can, when you can.

Organizing is tough...getting started is the hardest I think. When I write on my to do list "organize desk" I rarely do it. But if I write something specific like, put my paints in the bin. I am more likely to do it because I can check it off my list. that is me! But maybe breaking things down will help.
