No, Not That!!!Woman in the Middle | January 16, 2013
I just checked out a blog for the first time. I try to do that every once in a while, see what some of those millions of other bloggers out there are doing. This blog is called “Underachiever’s Guide to being a Domestic Goddess.” Obviously the woman has a sence of humor, always a good start for me! Then I saw her January 2nd post and the nightmare began….
It was called “Knock Knock” What was knocking at her door? All of those things she promised to do ”after the holidays.” Well “after the holidays” has arrived and now all of those things she told herself she would do , things like sorting the kids toys, organizing and weeding out their clothes, getting into an exercise routine, watching less television, are here and waiting for her to get her act together! Her amazingly long list just made me queasy, because it included many things from my “after the holidays” list. Today is January 16th and I was doing such a good job of ignoring the fact that it was after the holidays. But, because of my fellow blogger, I can no longer forget, and so the cause of the nightmare!
What is knocking at my door?
Organizing my walk in closet, which is very small for a walk in closet.
Getting into a better cleaning routine, instead of the frantic “friends are coming over” craziness that dominated 2012.
Cleaning the dust off blinds in the bedroom. (There are a lot of blinds and a lot of dust)
Picking out tile for the bathroom floors so that little project can get done.
Getting some major garage cleaning done.
Organizing the coat closet to, in someway, make better use of that space.
Oh yeah, finding a job!
That is only part of my list. It was too depressing to think of any more of those things I postponed until “after the holidays.” Maybe I will do that after MLK’s birthday…
What is knocking at you door now that the holidays are over?
