Do you get overwhelmed at times when things get busy and you can't keep up? You're in a hurry in the morning so dishes are left in the sink. You rush home and drop what's in your arms at the door. Things pile up to deal with "later".
Usually you you can stay on top of things, but there are those periods when it's hard to keep up.
Life happens to all of us. Including professional organizers.
I've mentioned several times this summer that I have a few clients that I'm doing a lot of work for, including one who had to declutter and organize her whole home to prepare to sell it. I love my job but I've been working so much this summer that I'm not keeping up at my home.
I've been rushing out the door in the morning to drop my kids of at day camps or grandparents' homes, working long days, picking the kids up, quickly getting dinner ready, and then racing out to baseball practices or games or other activities most evenings. By the time we're all home and the kids are in bed, I'm pooped out and need to recharge before doing it all over again.
One of the drawbacks of helping others declutter and organize their homes is that I end up being too tired sometimes to deal with our home. I'm not always as busy as I've been lately, but now that I've got a few weeks without clients, I need to take back my house! I looked around my house this morning and this is what I saw.
