I have something terrible to share with you all…
…I think I have lost the plot. Or at least lost my inner organizer. Things have slipped and I’m starting to freak out about it!
It really is Get Organized Week and that is a very good thing, because my typically organized self seems to have gone on holiday before the rest of me! Everything seems to be disorganized and the more I think I need to get it under control before leaving on holiday the more stressful it becomes.
If you are a regular reader, you will know this is not “normal” for me. After all, I have confessed to my wardrobe OCD and you would have to know that runs over into other areas of my life. Or it did. Until a couple of months ago. I’ve also been bitten by the procrastination bug. So everything is messier than it has ever been, it’s stressing me out that it is this way, but I am powerless to do anything about it today because “tomorrow, I can focus on that”.
Have mercy. Who have I become?!
I need to take some drastic steps in clearing the clutter from my life. Not just the clutter around the house that has snuck up on me but the clutter on my brain from external sources.
Don’t worry, I’m not running around with an aluminum/aluminium hat to keep out the voices but my brain needs to clear some space!
I’ve always been one of those people who find it hard to think clearly in a cluttered environment. The one that has to tidy up the workspace before starting work and I can hear my dad’s voice in my head saying, “If you put things back where you found them, you would know where they are when you need them”. And again, no, I haven’t lost my mind or started hearing those kinds of voices but it is making me a bit crazy.
Probably because we are going away in less than two weeks. We’ll be gone for a month. To a country where I barely speak the language. Although I am quite thrilled to be going, I feel I have so much to get done before we go.
Mostly I worry about this blog. I don’t want to spend my holiday trying to make time to blog and missing out on actually enjoying Spain. Plus, what if there are internet difficulties? I don’t want you all to think I have abandoned you! Which means I am trying to get a fair few posts written ahead of time and then hope to supplement a few throughout the holiday when time and internet connections permit.
I have some great stuff planned to share in those weeks that we are away. I just need to find the time to get them all written. You know it’s very scary to think about writing 30 posts before I go!
Luckily a couple of dear followers will be guest posting during that time. I could use a couple more if anyone wants to help me get organized!
Anyway, I can’t stick around stressing about what I don’t have time for. It’s time to get myself organized! I have posts to write and clothes to pack.
This week is all about getting organized!
Let’s do it!
