Getting Organized…the project!

I would love to be one of those highly organized people who has a place for everything and has everything its place. Unfortunately, I am the type of person who has a place where things should be and lots of things where they shouldn’t be. This is not ideal for a mother, wife, elementary school librarian, and writer. At any given moment, I’ve got twenty things going on and I usually know the general vicinity of the things I need to lay hands on in a given day, but some days it seems like I’m pulling my hair out trying to remember where I put that ink pen or what happened to that permission slip from my daughter’s pre-school. Short of calling the crew from Clean House, I’m not sure what to do. In light of this, I’m designating my first ever free summer to the pursuit of getting organized.

Of course, I’ll be writing and promoting during the summer to get ready for the release of Keeping the Faith on September 25th, but the bulk of my time is going to be spent trying to reduce clutter; both emotional and physical. By the end of this year, there won’t be ten things standing between me and that note pad I’m always searching for when I need to write out my grocery list. I will be journalling about the process of de-cluttering over the course of the summer and hopefully, after doing lots of research and trial and error, I’ll also be giving you information that will help you to de-clutter your own life. Day one will be on Saturday, June 20th. I hope you’ll tune in to join me in my quest for a clutter-free life.

Oh…and, yes, there will be pictures. As much as I hate to show my weaknesses, in order to know if a true transformation has taken place, I must do the whole before and after photo thing.

Until next time…
