Organized Chaos

I live in a world I like to, shamefully, call Organized Chaos. And, it makes me miserable! So, here's my vow: I will take positive and aggressive steps to reduce the clutter in my life. I should start by saying that I am by no means a hoarder. I am just extremely unorganized. I have no problems throwing things away, I just have trouble organizing the things I want to keep. Like I have said before, I have great ideas but I lack the ability to follow through. I also have a bit of OCD where I feel that I have to touch everything and look at everything before I can toss it or put it away. I feel that everything has a place and should always be put back in that place and I need to get my family on that same line of thinking. It drives me nuts when I go to look for something and it is not in the place where it was supposed to be. I guess maybe I am such a perfectionist that I give up due to frustration and I also don't know where to start. So, here goes. I am posting this here because it kind of gives me people to be accountable to. My husband found a great online tool for me to use to make a "to do" list. I have already marked one thing off and that was getting new sneakers. They are the most comfortable sneakers I have ever worn but that's another story. I am off to mark something else off my list. Follow through is a good thing!

Starting from where I left off

Wow! I had no idea it had been so long since I made a post. I think of things to post about but then forget to post so I'll just start where I left off. So, went for the MMR titer only to find out that, for whatever reason, I am not immune to the diseases? I don't know. So, I had to go and wait at the health department for about an hour and get the shot all over again.
Started classes in the Fall of 2010 and did well and went to sign up for Spring 2011 only to find out that the class I wanted was full. Guess that's what I get for procrastinating. I only have 44 more credits to go before my Bachelor's and am taking one or two classes at a time for monetary reasons. If I hadn't procrastinated for 17 years then I would not have this to worry about.

This school year is almost over and next year my Brad will be in 3rd grade but, what's worse is, Cameron will be a senior. Could I be that old? Yes, barely. I have lots of plans for the kids this summer but we'll see if they all fall into place. I always have good ideas but need to work on the follow through.
