Lists, Bathtubs, and Faith

The realization that the laundry isn’t clean and put away, dust is stacking up on furniture, and the house hasn’t been picked up in a couple of days has sunk in. Everyone laughs and says that’s what happens when you have a baby and all the extras that come with them. I haven’t quite figured out how to complete projects, even after a year!

Okay, things have changed considerably in the last year. Now instead of putting little Q in the living room to play he’s off to the bathroom to see if the tub has water in it or crawling to the back door to squeal and splash in the dog’s water dish. It’s getting a little more difficult to keep an eye on him while putting laundry away or hauling items downstairs. Q is especially unhelpful when unloading the dishwasher. He thoroughly enjoys sitting on the door, trying to crawl inside while pulling out silverware, and playing with the spinner.

I really do love to organize but so far it’s merely been compiling lists of projects that need to be completed and things I would like to start doing. They are very slowly getting checked off, but it seems more are added to it daily. Decluttering is one of the things at the top of my list and reorganizing pretty much everything in our house. That would require me to take some time off work because I’m not accomplishing much at night or on weekends. My good intentions are always there, but so far it hasn’t produced as much as I’d like. It is never ending!

It’s humorous because I’ve found some amazing blogs that help with this exact thing, but do I have time to peruse them right now? Nope. Within the next 6 months, it will happen. If it doesn’t, I think my brain might blow up. My mantra right now is “stay calm and have faith that everything will work out fine”. It’s all good.
