Have you ever played with one of these?
Right now, I'm living in one.
It's called My-House-Is-A-Wreck-and-I-Don't-Know-Where-To-Put-Anything.
Mama Elephant escaped last week, before I could completely finish up with baby.
(If you don't normally read my blog, the above sentence is probably incoherent to you. No, I'm not a zoo keeper. I have two rather large organizing projects going on. Baby Elephant and Mama.) Due to scheduling and other logistics, I had to empty out the Mama Elephant room (You'll get to actually meet her next week) before I could finish the Baby Elephant area.
Now my living room looks like this:
I can't describe how much looking at this makes me want to cry.
You see the Baby Elephant space there in the background and my pretty new empty bookshelf on the right?
It's empty because the floor behind the couch looks like the picture above.
I can't get to the bookshelf to put stuff on it.
I have to keep moving the puzzle pieces around.
Furniture item X must be moved into room A, but that means furniture item Y is going in to room C, but room C doesn't have a space for it yet because I have to clear out that corner which requires making a decision on furniture item Z.
And, this is why I'm sitting on the couch paralyzed with anxiety instead of diving into that pile. Which is large enough I could literally dive into it. I'm not sure the flooring is even present anymore.
So, what do I do with all this stuff?
Feel free to resume your regularly scheduled life now.
I'm just going to here and breath into a bag.
