Keepin’ It Simple

There are lots of reasons projects don’t get done in my house. Most of the time it’s due to the two crazy boys in my home, but sometimes I can’t blame them. Sometimes it’s completely my fault. I’ll think the project will take ten, very complicated steps; in reality, it will take two simple steps […]

Just a Little Decorating

It may not technically qualify as “organizing”, but decorating is definitely part of making a house feel like home. This weekend I didn’t get much organizing done, but I did do a little bit of decorating. We now have the pictures on the wall (not counting X-man’s artwork from school). It was a three day process […]

An Organizer’s Move

In the over twelve months since I last posted, I had a baby (welcome Lil’ TJ!), took a break from my business, and…moved to Houston, Texas! Just a couple changes.  We have been in Houston for almost three weeks now and are working on getting the house put together.  The boxes have been unpacked (only […]

A Challenging Client…

Diagnosis: Inner Tube Brain

While I was pregnant, other moms would tell me to watch out for “Mom Brain.”  After careful examination of my symptoms (i.e. turning on the washing machine before taking the clothes out, forgetting the three items I wanted to buy at the grocery store), I’ve diagnosed myself with this condition.

Priorities Straight?

I learned a lesson about my priorities this week… As I was scrambling to get to the New Moms Group, I looked in the mirror by the door and saw I wasn’t wearing mascara (I look like I have no eyelashes without it).  Yes, X-man was about to lose it as he sat bundled-up in […]
