Here we are at week 2 of Monday Confessions: Chaos in my Closet! Before we begin, I wanted to say a couple things about last week’s post. First of all, I mentioned running in a marathon in November. I want to clarify that I’m not running an entire marathon. I’m doing the 5K…which is still pretty awesome! Also, since I broadcasted my weight to the whole world, my mind has decided that it’s okay to go ahead and eat those 4 chocolate chip cookies since everyone knows how much I weigh anyway. Ugh…not a good thing. I’ve really gotta get this extra weight off. So, I’ve decided to just take you on my journey of trying to get physically fit. I’ll let you know how it goes periodically.
So, on to today’s confession…and this confession literally stresses me out. I guess you could call it a closet confession (pun intended). My closet is a complete mess…and I think I’m in denial about it. Every time I walk in I try secretly humming because usually humming is a sign of happiness. Oh good grief. Who am i kidding?? I’m not happy about it y’all. It does allow me to get through it though.
In my mind, my closet is perfectly organized. It is color coordinated and my shoes are uniformly stacked. My sweaters have a place. My underwear is neatly organized. Aahhhh what a dream.
I’ve often thought about hiring an organizer to help me..but then I tell myself, why in the heck would I hire an organizer when I can just do it myself if I’d put my mind to it. It’s like hiring a housecleaner in my mind. I can’t handle hiring one when I can do it myself. I’d rather spend that money on something else. But, I never “do it myself.” The only thing I end up doing myself is cleaning my house. I like a clean house. All the other stuff I put off…and the cycle continues.
Ok here we go- I actually really love the lay out of my closet. It’s hard to see, but there is a chest that sits in the center of our closet. Each side has 5 drawers. John has one side, I have the other. In my head it’s really posh and clean and decorative. In reality it looks like poo. It could be so much more if I’d just put some effort in to it.
Yep. There it is. That dreaded suitcase. I just got back from a NYC missions trip. I don’t know where to put it. So I’ll just leave it in the floor until I get stressed out enough to put it somewhere OR I use it for the next trip in which this excites me because the suitcase is out of the floor…but then I never can enjoy it because I’M GONE. Geez. That catch all space? I don’t know. It’s just a catch all.
Oh lookie more catch all spaces! There are many of them in my closet. 🙂
Here’s a little glimpse of John’s side of our closet. It’s a bit more clean than mine.
And while we’re at it and it’s all out there, why not throw in some pics of my jewelry drawers. I don’t even have words.
Okie dokie! There ya have it. Confession #2. My closet. Complete chaos. Honestly though, I’ve learned not to let his effect me negatively because believe me, it could. It’s far from perfect and that’s okay. It’s messy. Dare I say that I’ve learned to live with it. Yes I wish it was clean, neat, and organized. Maybe it will be someday, I don’t know. For now, I just live with it. There are more pressing things I need to worry myself with.
