Hello 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Mama Odie | Jan 1, 2009

It’s a new YEAR, a new MONTH, and a new SV BLOG TOPIC!


At the moment I’m a little inspired for this topic. I’m sitting at my mother-in-law’s kitchen table in Baltimore, recouping from a New Year’s Eve of little sleep and a New Year’s Day of taking my 20yo and 17yo nieces to see Twilight (my second time! It really is better the second time).

Anywho, my MIL, Carol, has got to be the most organized woman I know. It’s a wee bit scary. You wouldn’t guess it from outside appearances, but, hello Organization QUEEN! Actually, to be more exact, she’s the Ziploc Queen. She has Ziplocs of every size and style, and a lot of them. Everything she owns is stored in some sort of ziploc and labeled. My husband and I make fun of it a lot, but actually it is kind of inspirational.

This month, I have a goal – I will FINALLY organize/clean my office. It’s a scary sight. Wanna see? Don’t judge me!

Ok, it’s not very pretty. I’ve had this tendency lately to go in, do a project, and walk back out the door, shutting it behind me so that I don’t have to admit it looks this bad. Since I’ve spent all my free time working on my Master’s Degree, I haven’t been the best about keeping this room clean. I swear the rest of the house is NOT that bad!

So this is my organization nightmare, I mean, project for the month. Stay tuned!!!
