After Christmas, there always seems to be massive amounts of clutter around my house. There are unopened presents with no home yet, bowls of candy from the kids and clothes upon clothes with the tags still on them waiting to be hung.
Nobody would ever think that I would leave the stuff how it is for weeks because I am such a clean and organized person. But this is my time. This is the time I take to regroup for the new year and get my game plan ready for 2017. So is my house a little bit of a mess? Absolutely. And for some reason, I’m still awaiting the arrival of five packages to add to my hoard of new things. I use the word hoard lightly – In my family there are some serious hoarders. However, I am not one of them. Just that word alone gives me the hives. For the most part, I am super organized and always have a clean space.
In the picture is my newest niece Henzley Andrea Vanessa. Another Christmas gift to our family and a reason to slack off a little bit. Aunts get to do that, right? In this house they do. I’ve slightly learned to embrace my inner bum. Having OCD is sometimes exhausting, nothing I would change, but sometimes exhausting. Being on top of things all the time has its benefits surely, but so does learning to slow down and let those piles of new things sit on the floor in my bedroom all along the wall for days or even weeks.
I manage to make my bed every morning after I am done drinking my coffee in it. So if you were to walk in my room it kind of says “She has her life together.” Or at least that’s how it makes me feel, even if at this very moment I don’t. Oh well, back to my second pot of coffee of the day. Always be yourself.
