I have come to the realization that I need a professional organizer. I need someone to come in and fix my house. Then I would like them to teach me to make better use of my time. Now that Sam has arrived I can't get anything done. (I also had this problem before baby, but now I can use sleep deprivation as some sort of excuse.) I have about 10 jobs half done. The days that I decide to start something are the days he doesn't nap well. Yesterday he slept for 3 1/2 hours and I made the brilliant decision to watch for facebook updates during that time. It was a very productive day. Today I wanted to hang up all the clothes, put the towels away, get his clothes in order, and choose one corner of my messy house to claim as my own, call it organized and be proud of myself. But of course today is the day he has decided not to sleep. Will somebody please come and do it for me? I promise I will keep up with it if you just get me started.
The problem is that I really don't know how to get organized. I always seem to have too much stuff even though I really don't have that much. I am very good at throwing things away and I am not much of a hoarder. I do admit I have some sort of a problem with spatial reasoning. I can fit very little in a huge closet. What I really need is my mom to come over and treat my house like she used to treat my bedroom when I was a teenager. I would let my bedroom get out of control due to my ever pressing social calendar and my mom would surprise me by totally cleaning it top to bottom. Then she would completely reorganize all my stuff. I loved it and I always promised to keep it looking nice. That promise would last about two months and then she would have to do it all over again. I love my mom! Unfortunately I have lost my mom's time to baby Sam. When she comes over he is her top concern. So...what to do?? I need a plan. I need a great plan of action...first step, put down the computer.
