winter cleaning.



I'm in one of those moods that comes MAYBE once a milennium for me. I'm a very organized person when it comes to the daily, mundane bill sort of things, but cleaning and general organization? Gross.



So, because I have a few hours to kill before meeting with someone who is directly involved with The Big Surprise, I thought I'd download a few Real Simple checklists and work on a home inventory. I've always wanted to be THAT wife, with a list for absolutely everything. Weird, yes, and totally counterproductive, but hey--- it's a dream.



I went a bit crazy with my lists, and now have approximately 21 pages to fill out, including an inventory of all sporting equipment. If you know anything about me, this is ridiculous, because I just may have a tennis racket in my garage from 1983.



Whew. I'm in for QUITE an afternoon. Wish me luck, and go have yourself a merry organization day with help from Real Simple, right here.

You are killing me with all the hints about the big surprise!

Good luck with the cleaning! I used to have that dream, of being the wife with all the lists. I had lists of everything and keep little card file boxes of inventory for things like Christmas decorations. NO MORE! No more I say.

On a funny note, my 7 year old son just walked up to me in all seriousness and said, "Mom, could we clean up this room, there are piles of things over here and things over there...it doesn't look so good." Eek.

design for mankind. said...

Samantha: ME TOO! I created a similar look with a few Billy's from IKEA and I LOVE the result!

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
