Confession time

I have a really bad habit of letting mail and miscellaneous papers pile up on our kitchen island. Of course, the papers are organized into piles - mine, Steve's and the girls. However, I let them pile up so high and don't go through them until I have to. And what's worse, if I know someone is coming over, the way I solve my messy kitchen island mess is I throw all of the piles into Wal-Mart sacks and toss them into my bedroom closet. (My hubby just LOVES me for this!) Needless to say, if I don't go through those sacks on occasion, they pile up, too! Well, after hardly being able to open the closet door any more and after not being able to reach my clothes any longer, I finally decided to clean out my closet this weekend. It took me 6 hours and I'm still not quite done, but I got a lot completed. I even had sacks from three or four years ago that I needed to go through! By the end of the day, I had 4 overflowing sacks of trash! Quite pitiful! I try to stay organized with other things, but this is just one of my many flaws I need to work on ;-) So if you're ever going to drop by my house, please let me know ahead of time, so I can clean off my kitchen island and add a new Wal-Mart sack of stuff to my closet ;-)

Trust me I am the same way. Although I promised myself I would do better after we moved and well I am doing kindof better. Although for me it has always been just pile everything in the bedroom. Especially now b/c it is still not all of the way unpacked yet, oopsy!
