Well I have hit the proverbial brick wall

With all the stress and being sick and the upside down condition of my house I sit here and think did I try and do to much. Not really depressed, but frustrated. I would like some "Normal" What ever that really is.

Some days just seem to run into each other and the things we want to do never get done. We are getting things done, but now it is hurry up and wait. I guess right now I am not patient. Stop and take a deep breath or maybe several and consider you are waiting on others to do this work. We are so use to doing everything ourselves and it is done in a fashion and pace we can handle.

Sitting here and thinking about the last few months and what we have done. Lots has happened and yet more needs to happen. I need to get more motivated to get things complete. Like cleaning the sewing room and the extra bedroom. The rest is in a fairly complete order. Don't look in the closets though. OH MY don't open the doors.

I have been creating a wall of resistance to the fact that I am to blame for most of this un- organization. I am an organizer of events not of material things. Do you understand? A room to me can be cluttered, but in the clutter I know where something is at. Well that needs to change. I need space with some order. All of my own doing.

There are some plans in the back of my head that need finalizing and I need to get my rear in gear and get planning and organization complete. At this rate it is going to take for ever. I am not getting it done. Not really even starting to come close.

The wall of indecision has hit me right in the face. Here is to making a challenge to myself to spend an hour or two to meeting this goal of organization. Chris

I know that feeling! I had a chronic migraine problem for six months of this year, then i got c diff colitis a nasty colon infection, then we bought a house and moved. So i feel disorganized and like i have a years worth of organizing to catch up on. My to do list is so long i dread starting it each day. But if i start with a small task it is a couple of hours before i realize a small task leads to a bigger task and stuff gets done. We'll get there!

Chris, try making a plan. I mean like a blue print. Actually look at your room and envision how you would like it to be organized - how it would work best for you. Do you need more bins? Can you make some fabric baskets from excess fabric (lots of free patterns and instructions on the 'net). Get what you need first or you will end up with piles of stuff that don't have a designated 'home'. Break up the room into zones and decided to work on individual zones one day at a time. Before you know it, you'll have it done the way you envision it. Trying to get it done all at once will be overwhelming - ask me how I know!!!
Your organization has to work for you, not anyone else... Keep that in mind..
Good Luck - I know you can do this!
As for normal - you've been through a lot the past few months, you will probably find you have a new type of 'normal' - it has yet to present itself...
