My house is a disaster; my life isn’t far behind. It’s driving me crazy, but I’m really good at letting the depression take over and prevent me from even getting started. My best friend sent me to Unfuck Your Habitat, and I’ve been lurking for a couple of weeks trying to get myself motivated to actually start something.
Well, I finally got the kick in the ass that I needed. I forgot to pay the water bill. We returned home Friday night from a nice family vacation to discover that we had no water. I paid the bill, but of course, since it was after business hours it didn’t do us any real good. My family of six has spent the last two days without water.
I may not be able to keep much together, but I’ve got to start somewhere. I chose the living room because it’s where my kids spend most of their time. I intended a 20/10, but it ended up being more of a 45/15.
I feel good. I don’t need to do a marathon cleaning of the whole room to feel like I did something. I just have to get started. I made a difference in just 45 minutes.
