i’m not proud
but it has to be told
the story of my inability…
to work in a clean zone
I moved my whole studio/woman cave 🙂 from the front 12′ x 15′ dining room complete with an amazing natural light source, east northeastern windows…
to a tiny hole in my laundry room.
I now nest in a 6′ x 6′ space. More like 6′ x 4′ because of overflow.
As you can see; I can’t blame my lack of organization on space.
It was just more spread out before.
What did I do with all of my stuff that filled the larger room?
Some of it moved to the garage, some I tossed to the curb and some I have sold.
but this little treasure chest…this is were all the broken dishes go now
tossed in a drawer.
This really doesn’t qualify as unorganized in my book…I think it’s lovely 🙂
One time I even did something with some of this treasure…
For the life of me I don’t know why I don’t make more mosaic designs, as I recall it was really fun.
Why did I do this?
Give up the digs…
Reduce my space…
plant myself in the smallest corner of my house?
Well it was simple…
my kids needed a place to entertain friends, watch movies, play games, slob out and be in close proximity to the kitchen, because that’s what teenagers do.
We have a modest home with one living area and three bedrooms clustered off of a small L shaped hall way.
Noise was always a factor with kids in the den. We don’t allow our kids to entertain girlfriends or boyfriends in their rooms. So…I sacrificed my “huge” room for the dungeon for the time being.
I know it won’t be long and they will be gone… *sniff*
(notice the photo in aqua frame? that was 15yrs ago; time goes by so quickly)
I’m okay with it for now and you would think that a smaller space would force me to keep it clean…think again.
I try and organize, clear a space, purge more…
but you know it just makes me crazy.
I can’t find anything when I put it away.
I have a the opposite of OCD.
I’ll let you figure out a name for that.
Are ya wondering why I’m showing you my “clutter”?
I got wind of a new link party over at Just Drink a Coke!
She urged us to be …
and to show it off!
Well alrighty then…I’m disorganized and proud of it!
Thank you Miranda…I am free at last.
