Where to start

As I sit here to write this post, I feel tired, lost, and disappointed in myself. I am looking around the room (for those of you that don't know, when sitting at my kitchen counter you can see my front door, side door, and back door....not much is hidden from view, unfortunately) and I'm almost overwhelmed by the state of my home. The counters are covered in "stuff" that needs to find a home. The dishes are only half done. Toys are littered across the living room floor and couch. The laundry is still sitting in the baskets that I brought it home in two days ago after drying it at the laundromat because my dryer has died, which means the dirty clothes are on the floor. There is one shoe here, another over there, a couple more under the table, none of which are where they are supposed to be. Bills, papers and receipts etc are sitting in numerous piles waiting to be organized, purged, put away, and otherwise dealt with. My work stuff is stacked and patiently waiting to be done. The dust bunnies are multiplying...darn bunnies. The rest of the house...well, we let just say that it seems the condition has spread.

Needless to say I feel like I am failing miserably at the housekeeper portion of my job. It is not that I don't want to do it, it is more about where the heck do I start. I get on a roll and get some of it cleaned up, but while my back is turned cleaning up something else, the area I just cleaned seems to have some weird problem with magnetism and attracts anything and everything from anywhere else in the house. CALGON! TAKE ME AWAY!!

In all seriousness though, this is something that bothers me, and I am determined to find a way to get my home in shape, and keep it there. I am sure that my quest to organized cleanliness will be frought with many dangers and the battle will rage for many days. Rest assured though.....I WILL TRIUMPH!! husband and kids on the other hand.....
