I follow a couple of blogs with tips on staying organized, mostly so I can bitch about how type A they are and what a miserable life that must be. And occasionally I'm like "oh I should go alphabetize my socks right now too!" But most of the time I get super jealous and feel bad about myself and what a failure I must be.
I have my moments where I am ambitious and I get shit done. But even on a Saturday when I have extra help at home, it still takes a really long time to do what takes others 10 minutes.
My whole point here is if you feel like you can't stay on top of it, you're not alone.
So here. You can start feeling better now:
|Mud room. Absolutely no organization to it. Drives me nuts. Makes me anxious to share this.|
|Family room after moving all the random stuff onto the coffee table (instead of just putting it away) to clean the carpets.|
|At least the carpet is clean.|
|The things tossed on the stairs "so I can bring them up next time I go upstairs." hahahahahaha|
|Oh yeah. Don't we have a playroom down here? yup. It's bulimic.|
|Maybe If I just move everything to the bottom it won't look as messy.|
|If you're looking for something, it's likely it's stuck on the fridge.|
|Ugh. the kitchen table. We eat our meals here. HOW? By moving that pile someplace else, that's how.|
|And it turns out I'm a mess too. I have spit up all over this shirt. Notice the finger prints on that mirror.|
DEAL WITH IT.
With people posting, sharing, pinning, instagramming everything these days, it can be easy to feel like you don't measure up to it all.
But dude. This is my house on a normal day. Not a tornado day, not the day of cleaning, just a normal day. Sorry if you're disappointed.
No I'm not.
I just hope I made you feel a *teensy* bit better about not always being on top of it all.
Do you think that social media has an impact about how you feel about yourself, your home, or your possessions?
I do. But then I just read the confessions on Scary Mommy and decide I'm normal.
