Take a look at that drawer. What a mess. What does that drawer tell you about me? Besides that I have messy drawers. This unfortunately is not the only messy drawer in my house at the moment. I did however, clean this one out after I took the picture. Crazy the things I found in there. A wood chip? What would possess a wood chip to be hangin out in my kitchen drawer. This drawer is located in the bank of drawers underneath my telephone in the kitchen. You know that area? The area that is a magnet to mess.
But really what does this drawer say about me. Hmmmm...
Well I see three hand sanitizers in there. Yes, I am a germaphobe.
Google eye glasses. Um... yes I am a person who on occasion puts on googly glasses. For the record I didn't buy them, my eight year old won them at church...but I stole them from her. So I guess this drawer says I am a thief and a germaphobe that wears googly eye glasses!
There are three pairs of kid sunglasses in this drawer. Um no clue as to what that means. This is a catch all drawer does it have to mean something?
A bag of chalk. I like hopscotch. With all the snow on the driveway, that won't be happening unless I draw it out on my basement floor.
It may be hard for you to see but I actually do have organizers. I like order, I just can't always keep it, and that goes for most areas of my life.
I used to be neurotic about my house. Like psycho clean organized woman. You would have never found a drawer like this in my house ten years ago. I wanted everything in it's place at all times. But this took alot of time. At some point I realized I was missing out on a lot of life, by being such a control freak about my house. I have gradually over time, little by little, let some things go......well alot of things go. (With prayer and Gods help.) I will say my life is much more fun on so many levels.
Messy Drawer and Muffin Top Mama's UNITE! Hey, that would make a great T-shirt.
I feel pressure sometimes to be neurotic about my house. Kenny is a neat freak, but he loves me more than messy drawers and has learned to let some things go too. But not the garage....you could eat off the floor most days. It seems like at the first of the year everywhere you look people are talking about "getting organized". Every magazine is blabbing about it. People are blogging about it. It's on the morning shows. WHO, honestly, HAS TIME!? To have a Pottery Barnesque house. Everything in it's place in a cute basket, or in some sort of lovely $75 container. Jeeze Louise.
I am not a hoarder....the three pair of kiddy sunglasses may make you think otherwise. If anything I throw things away or give them away too readily. For example the freezer that I sold for $50 bucks and then regretted selling. Ah it was a chest freezer I wanted a stand up anyway! By the way have you watched that Hoarder show? Hokey Pete! That show makes me sad. I am afraid that my kids might take a turn in that direction, because of me. They are all afraid I'm going to get rid of their stuff, or if they can't find something for 5 seconds, I'm accused of tossing it. Hey my peeps give me a break...go look in the Goodwill pile, I haven't gone yet today.
What can you tell me about myself by looking at that drawer....come on bring it on, analyze me Baby.
Have a great weekend and remember....
Mess and Muffins FORevAH!
