Just one hour

marie26March 25, 2007

My list of things to take care of has been somewhat sidetracked since my daughter's things arrived. She is very sick right now so I've taken it upon myself to do the work for her. Besides, she doesn't care about order and I've finally reached a place where order in my house is necessary.

I've been organizing for 1 hour a day. It's amazing how much can actually be accomplished in just one hour. This week I'll be out of the house 3 days going to appointments. I hate when that happens, especially when I get on a roll.

Marie, I'm sorry that your daughter is sick. It is hard to be a nurse and an organizer! I'm always amazed at how much I can get done in a relatively short amount of time.. I almost always think things will take so-o-o much longer. Speedy recovery to your daughter! Keep up the good work.

Sorry your dtr is sick, but it's very kind of you to do her sorting and decluttering for her. I wish I had someone to help me an hour a day.

So sorry to hear your daughter is ill.

Good on you for making the most of those hours. I've wasted way too much time by thinking oh, it's only an hour or two, not worth starting.
