Today Mrs. Furious issued an organizational challenge, and since I have been afraid to step foot in my office for the last few months I decided what better time to tackle the disaster. Especially since I'm not one to pass up a challenge. I don't know what is harder, posting before pictures of my house or before pictures of me.....must be me, because I haven't dared to do that. So this is my shame, the worst room in my house, the place where I am suppose to conduct business....pretty pathetic, huh? What is really scary is my entire house was spotless last June....we had the house on the market but then decided we would just remodel instead. The remodel did throw our house out of sync quite a bit, we were sleeping in the living room, moving furniture from room to room. Really though, this room just got out of hand and I have been too afraid to tackle it.
Part of the problem here is that not only is it my office, we also use it as a playroom for the girls. So all the toys and playthings that there isn't room for in the girls room overflow into here, and they have way too much stuff. Yes, that is a giant dollhouse in the center of my office. The girls got the dollhouse from Santa (aka Costco), and it has engulfed the office. It is four feet high, and three feet square. Yes, they are spoiled.
Compounding things, I recently changed jobs and will be operating a business out of my home office too....yes this one (really time to get this under control)! But I haven't unpacked all of the boxes or hung my diploma and certificates on the walls. They have been sitting there for 3 months!
Yes, I know it is horrible. My life is chaotic and my house reflects that. I am a slob, and every member of my family is too. No one can put anything away! No one seems to know where the garbage can is.
The beds aren't even made.
Needless to say, we don't eat in our dining room.
