Minor Holiday Mishaps and Organizational Issues
This year we’ve gone pretty unscathed with holiday mishaps.
I did lose a $15 Starbucks gift card (that could have been yours!) and I lost a book of stamps somewhere between the post office and my house. How does that happen? Where do you think that stuff goes? I either have a black hole in my house caused by red matter from Star Trek, or a mouse that’s collecting things like they had in Cheaper by the Dozen 2. And yes, almost all my references are movie related.
Do you know how I long to be organized? Do you know how much I love using the word “long” as a verb? I like it a lot. Like in the movie…..just kidding, I don’t have a movie reference for that. So anyway, I would love to be organized. I would love to just shred every single thing after I read it. I would love for my rolltop desk to be cleaned off and everything filed in its appropriate place. I used to think I needed to be on one of those organizing shows, and then I watched one. I felt a little better about my office. Then I watched Hoarders and had a whole new appreciation for my clutter, or lack of clutter compared to that show.
My grandpa was a hoarder. My dad would have been a hoarder if my step-mom didn’t put a stop to it right quick. I’m far from being a hoarder, but I definitely could be more organized. Maybe that will be a resolution, but that’s for another blog.
All of that behind me, and Christmas cookies cooling, I will say Merry Christmas Eve to you!
