I have a controlling personality - there, I said it. When things get slightly out of control, I can kind of get moody. Things - like having a new baby, having my husband work 18 hour days, having four kids home for the summer without a lot to do. You know, my life lately. After so much, I feel the need to control something - so I start organizing.
We've had birthdays, baby showers, holidays - and all of our gift wrapping supplies just got thrown into a box. And one day, I had had enough. The box is overflowing and I could tackle this. And I'll use what I have at home.
All this was crammed into a little box! I sorted it first.
And threw away a whole bunch and got a bigger box. And now, it looks like this:
Ah . . . I can breathe. I know when most people get overwhelmed they do other things - get out of the house, go exercise, go get a pedicure, hire a baby sitter. Me, on the other hand, I organize.
What do you do?
