I’ve reached the stage in “Operation Organize” that I call the danger zone.
All the fun stuff is done. All the stuff that makes a big difference is done. All I have left is all the yucky little stuff that I am tempted to shove in boxes and hide under the table.
BUT. I’m not going to do it. I’m going to leave everything out here in the living room until I am so sick of looking at it I have NO CHOICE but to finish putting it away.
And, just to shake things up a little, this weekend I’m going to allow myself to play a little, even though my project is incomplete.
What’s the point of being a grown up if you can’t fudge the rules a little now and then? And besides, it’s my own stupid rule (the one that says you can’t play until your work is done!) Hello? Yeah, it was a great rule once upon a time (like maybe when the kids were little!) but it’s outlived its usefulness, doncha think?
Yeah. Sometimes projects are so big you need to break them up a little, or at the very least, give yourself a little break.
So. Tomorrow I take at least a portion of the day and go into the newly cleaned studio, sit down at the table I haven’t seen for MONTHS and paint.
Think I’ll work on these guys!
And then I’ll show you my progress tomorrow night?
(And when I’m finished for the day, I’ll put everything away and leave the space as clean as when I sat down, right? RIGHT???)
Okay, I guess we still need to work on that part. I don’t seem to be buying into my own plan! Heeheehee! I’m excited!
