Spring (Cleaning) is in the Air

Yes, another episode of procrastiblogging. I've been sick as a dog all week and today was the first day I felt like I should push and try to move around. As many of you know, I've been undergoing a bedroom transformation in an effort to spring clean and organize my life. I decided that the bedroom is one of the most trashiest rooms in the house, especially when company comes over cuz all the crap ends up in there. How can I study and relax if the bedroom always looks like this? So...a couple hundred dollars that I don't have later, the room is undergoing slow transformation. I can't take pictures because DH has bought a new camera which I cannot use properly, and I think I lost two already. I've been banned from camera usage. I'm still optimistic, though, when I finally get down to the craft room that I will find them. Scary, huh?

I've managed to go through my clothes many times. Still have too many shirts, but overall, have knocked down some content. Shoes are in order. I've done a good job of keeping shoe issues under control over the years. I've even managed to tidy up my dresser top. That's a miracle. We'll see how long that lasts. Magazines have been gone through, clipped, and discarded. Jewelry the same. Cosmetics, ditto. Body stuff, too. The bathroom has been cleaned under the sink, and the kitchen has downsized stuff, too. Too much damn work! Did I mention that books have been sorted, too? I'm trying to downsize to one large bookcase. Seems like it will be successful. One bookcase will go into the craft room for more shelving options. Soapmaking supplies have taken over the kitchen. Stuff just migrates all over the house. Help!!!

I've been watching organization shows on HGTV to give me inspiration. If two gay guys can clean up their crappy rooms and get rid of all kinds of costumes and wigs, then I, too, have hope. I dream of the day I can wake up and not trip over anything. The day I can write something at a desk and not have millions of tiny tasks pecking away at my brain. The day I stop procrastiblogging and just blog, for heavens sake. I will be able to live in the moment, then, perhaps.

Lastly, I'm getting my gardening underway. I've thought before that I will not garden because of a non-existant water supply, but now have decided to make/buy a rainwater collection barrel and divert draining water to my rooftop paradise. (Hardly) In any case, I am adding two windowboxes to the front windows in the bedroom and a terrarium. We'll see how that goes. I'm not sure I want another responsibility for a living thing, but maybe I will not be so stressed about it since my life will be better organized? Do ya think?
