Getting The House Back In Order

The past two months have been hectic around here.  Working on my kids' school auction (which raised over $19,000-woot!) and taking photos for 5 preschools has put most other things in my life on hold.  So this weekend I have been on a cleaning frenzy.

The problem is there is so much to organize, clean, straighten up, toss out, that I find myself getting distracted as I go.  I go from one mess to another, without completing either task.  Grabbing a broom from the hall closet to sweep my porch has me passing by our cluttered guest room, which then pulls me in to put all the crap back in the closet (which I had pulled out three weeks ago for the AT&T guy who needed to get into our crawl space).  While getting the Windex from my kitchen cabinet, I have to pass by my dining room which has pulls me in to sort through the various auction leftovers that are scattered across my table (anyone want to buy some great stuff  cheap?).  I can't stay focused.

On top of my innate ability to veer off track easily,  I've been taking breaks to:  make lunch for the kids, run to the store to get a birthday present for two parties the kids have this weekend, throw in a load of laundry, send out reminder emails regarding the last week of school activities, put together photo packages and write a blog post on how distracted and messy I am.

While these activities may not be getting my house any cleaner, they are all on my "to do" list so I should be pleased that I am at least scratching these items off my list.  But what I really want is for my house to be clean and organized again!

So here I go, off to finish what I started.  We'll see how far I get.........
