Okay, this tackle was a quickie, but a tad profound… read on.
I am shockingly blind to clutter.
Stacks of this-and-that can pile up and I barely notice.
Sometimes I try and force myself to walk in my own door and try to see my house as a guest to jar myself into action. To try and realize that clutter has accumulated and that it must be cleared.
So today’s tackle did not take me much time. I admit it. But I think that is the power in this tackle.
It took me 15 minutes to clear off this counter and sideboard and yet I let myself feel like a failure for days because I know that the clutter exists and that it shouldn’t. Even if I am rather immune to the mess, guests see it and my family sees it, and it doesn’t need to be there.
Yes, I am a little crazy in that it takes a blogging deadline to force me to put away the pens, papers, toys, gadgets and junk that have piled up on my counters… but oh well… call me crazy.
(And then join me. Cleaning is so much more fun when we do it together!)
Join me next week as I tackle another corner of my untidy townhouse.
