Sunday's Gratitude Post

Tonight I'm grateful for organizational urges. They don't come to me very often.

Well, that's not true, actually. They come to me quite often ... but they whiz by before I can grab hold.

Recently, however, I've been watching for them and anticipating, so I can latch on before they disappear. For the last couple of months, we've taken a few hours out of our weekends to pick one small section of the house and organize it. Today it was the office, and it got to be a bigger job than I had planned. I ended up going through piles of stuff, recycling a bunch of junk, putting some in the Goodwill box, and even organizing drawers.

I'm dirty and tired, but I feel refreshed. I can open my drawers and see what supposed to be in there!

Now, let's see how long the organization lasts.


  1. Congratulations! It is a great feeling. You can actually recreate that feeling of having accomplished a lot by having regular family "Flying" to borrow from the FlyLady. Just 15 mins, set a timer, and everyone chooses a very small Fly Zone to tidy up. Slowly but surely (like by the time the kids graduate) the gargantuan tasks get more manageable :)

  2. I love this idea of a weekly gratitude post. I need to figure a way to incorporate it into my own blog without being a blatant copycat! Hmmm... "Monday's Gratitude Post"? Maybe not. I'll keep thinking.
