Signs, signs, everywhere signs

What the heck was my March resolution? Oh yeah.

Well, the timer thing didn't work, but, judging by the state of my home, I did spend considerably less time on the computer than I did in January and February.

And now, all of a sudden it's the middle of April and I haven't even thought about a resolution yet, much less work on it.

But, my baby boy is at my feet, playing with papers from my 'recycle bin' (a shoebox). Do you think that's a sign? I do.

Other signs...my inbox is overflowing, I have 5 other piles of paper, books and miscellaneous items that I spend a good bit of time searching through each week to find things. I have an unopened panini grill pan in the corner. A bag full of manicure items that was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law in 2006!

My favourite part of the room, though, is the trio of pictures we took before Baby Boy was born last spring. The framed pics are currently resting on the window sill, waiting to be hung in a place of honour.

My goal for April is to clean out and organize and decorate my office (yet again) and work on developing a system that truly works for me.

I'll post before and after pics at the end of the month.

Wish me luck.

I'm still in the process of working on a similar goal. For some reason, it's really hard for me to maintain my office space, probably because it's also part of my daughter's play area. Looking forward to the before and after pics!

Thanks for dropping by. I am with you on getting orgainized - I can surely use a bit of that. Best of luck and I'll talk to you soon.

Hope your ears are feeling better...

I hate that we have projects in states of "almost done." Those KILL me. Hope the pictures get hung up soon!

I need to spend less time on the net and declutter too! I need help though, I clean up and then the mess somehow reappears. How DOES that happen?

:-)

Thanks for stopping by, I won't tell you how many pictures I've taken over the last couple of days. It's obscene but I love it!
