GEORGIA ROCKS! A road I drive on to work, lucky me!

I've been enjoying my 4-day weekend. Today, I've done a good bit of home-keeping. I hate this. But, I watched something on Fine Living yesterday that I'd DVRed ages ago about cleaning and clutter. I also got a dose of How Clean Is Your House yesterday where Kim did a 5-minute clean up in a clean kitchen. I've got to get this place under control. I just don't have enough room, but am not in a financial position to get more space. So, I've got to get a handle on what I have here, perhaps getting rid of some stuff. Why is this process so painful? In the course of the past 10 years, I've moved from a 4-bedroom house to an apartment with a large downstairs living area and kitchen with the bedroom upstairs to a room, basically. I live with my sister (Supermom) and The Child. I love living here, but unless I am able to cull some more, I'm going to lose my mind. I suppose I should get the new book by Peter Walsh. I loved him when he was on Clean Sweep. This is a major issue that I seem to have going. Clutter is everywhere in my life, both at home and at work. My car isn't so bad, but then I'm riding with Dude a lot, so I'm not having an opportunity to junk it up.

I made a to-do list for the first time in a L-O-N-G time last night before going to bed. I am going to try to do this routinely. I know that this sounds hilarious to some folks who do this routinely. I am a procrastinator extraordinaire. I have managed to get several crossed off the list today. That is a very good feeling.

Well, along those lines, I must go now and finish up several of the items on my list.

I'm right there withyou, sister on the clutter. It doesn't matter the size of place you live in, I think it will get cluttered. I just don't seem to know how to use space efficiently. Plus... I need to cull. I think I am getting better. I'm going to try the to-do-list. I'm tired of wasted weekends with plans in my head that never materialize.
