One upside to the craziness of my "new" schedule is I have been able to do things like install a new closet system at home. I only have one small clothes closet and it was in desperate need of a face lift. Nothing fancy, just a Rubbermaid one from Lowes. I actually used the closet planning guide from Martha Stewart's web site and then got the Rubbermaid components for about 1/3 the price. I bought the components before the craziness of work happened. The components have been sitting on my bedroom floor for almost a month and I kept tripping over them. I think I was more tired of stubbing my toes than really motivated to organize the closet, but I'm happy I did do it.
Despite me having these manic mood swings about work, I decided to use some of my peppier energy to do things like re-organize and de-clutter my closet. I also trolled through my tee shirt collection, finally tossing out those old stained t-shirts that really don't fit. I did keep a couple to use as house rags, but the rest, trash can city. Did I really need that Oktoberfest 1984 T shirt that I never liked to begin with? I got a bag together of clothes to go to Goodwill. Right now I just don't see me losing those 25 pounds I gained during the BK to fit back into those pants. Let someone else use them, they were just taking up space in my house.
I also went through my dresser and purged socks, undies, and etc. Everything that was left was refolded and put back neatly. At least when I open my sock drawer, I will see neatly organized socks! In an odd way, it was very satisfying to tidy up my things. I still have to make some headway through my desk (which has become a disaster area), and the bathroom vanity.
No matter what happens, at least I feel a bit more organized!
