I've been bitten by the organization bug oh my!!

While putting together Princess' room, it became the cleanest room in the house. Mind you when I say putting together, I mean Roomie and upstairs neighbor did the actual putting together, I just organized and ordered the room after, me and power tools, or any kind of tools for that matter, let's just say everyone is safer when I stay away! Back to the cleanliness of Princess' room. Neither Roomie nor I will ever win good house keeper of the year, but we basically keep the place presentable, we're never embarrassed by how the place looks, so you can drop by anytime, but it still stood that Princess' room was the cleanest. This inspired me to do something radical, clean, organize, and generally pick up MY room...OMG!!! Many's the time I kept my bedroom door shut when company came over! The messiness of my bedroom is because I hate folding and putting away laundry, so there would be a pile of it in one corner. I never set up my new hamper, or really had one before I got the one I have from Ikea a few weeks ago, so there would be another pile of dirty clothes in another corner. I have a hard time throwing out old clothes, even when I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I will NEVER wear them again, so I didn't really have room to put away the clean clothes. Add to that a healthy dose of procrastination, well you can see why the room was the way it was. So yesterday, I folded all the clean laundry, washed all the dirty laundry, put it all away, and threw away old clothes. I took out three garbage bags full o' junk and stuff from my room!!! Ugh I know, some of you clean freaks out there are now disgusted, but hey it is what it is. I organized, dusted, swept, and put away. It's so clean in there now, I was inspired to actually make my bed this morning!!! The way I feel about making beds goes right with the procrastination thing, why make it now when I'm just going to get it all mussed later. But I must admit, it's nice getting into a freshly made bed!! So now Princess' room is not the only absolutely clean room in this house!! By the way, Princess is so proud of the fact that she has the highest bed in the house, she brags about it to me with a big smile on her face! Now, let's hope I can keep my room looking so spotless, because despite my slovenly ways, it DOES feel good to be organized and put away!!!
