In the midst of everything due and up-and-coming, I spent all of my Monday (from the moment I woke up till now) cleaning up the kitchen and reorganizing most of my papers, tools and supplies. And I'm still not quite done.
Okay - granted I tend to dump things in boxes around the time I get new boxes and not necessarily organize them according to category, I *thought* I had things under control... until KS started to notice that:
1) the studio has been looking like Hell and he's starting to go nuts,
2) I can't seem to find things and am tired of buying/cannot afford to buy replacements,
3) I can't walk from point A to point B without overstepping, sidestepping or hopping around other junk, and
4) we have not seen the surface of our dining room table since... the Monkey-Ame girls' first Borders showing...about 2 years ago.
That bad? Imagine worse. We have a whole room dedicated to just storing stuff - be it my over-sized art supplies, doll boxes, KS' 17 guitars, amps and recording equipment, bags, and other miscellaneous boxes. There is a secondary shelving unit in our kitchen to hold crafting supplies, paints, misc. paperwork, 1/6 sized doll stuff... and then more portable shelving in the "living room" which actually blocks one of our doors.
Let's hope there's no fire.
Just trying to find paperwork to file was an undertaking. Sorting craft items into some sort of sensible system took most of the day. I still have some miscellaneous junk to sort through in a banker box that's currently the only thing hiding under the dining room table. I'm just too tired to sort through the last of it.
Man. I just hope that I can maintain this system... and finish up the last of the mess in the living room by the end of this weekend... Inevitably more stuff will be up for sale at the Candy Shoppe early next week.
At least we can finally eat on the dining room table again instead of on the floor. =_=;
