Suddenly I See

Out of excuses

I have always tried to come up with creative reasons why I don't seem to get much done domestically. My favorites include working a full time job, my OCD making it too hard to do anything, and of course, my under active thyroid. But since moving to this bigger apartment it has just become clear that I am lazy. I just don't do things because doing nothing, or doing something I enjoy (which generally are one in the same) sounds so much better.

A lot of people say they can't stand if something is unorganized and I just don't have that problem. My problem is that I just rarely feel like kicking myself into gear. I know it takes a long time to unpack but I do have some time I just don't feel like doing it.

It was very helpful tonight when my Mom came over and helped me organize some things around the apartment. It's so much easier to do with a little help and encouragement and a girl just needs her mom for that. After organizing tonight I feel like this apartment is getting into shape. I'm not going to post any pictures (or take any for that matter) until things look a bit more put together and finished. I think this will happen when we start hanging stuff on the walls. I am excited to post pictures but I just want to show the apartment in the best light possible.

It's been a little over a week since we moved. The move was a lot of work even though it was just down the hall/pathway from my old apartment. There was the couch debacle, and of course I didn't put everything in boxes so we ended up carrying things over loose, and my mom fell :( :( and I was sick. But our stuff is here now so mission accomplished.

Favorite things about the apartment are the new air conditioning, the breeze that blows through the apartment, bigger kitchen, the kitchen bar area, all the space (there is so much of it), the cleaner carpet, the hall storage closets, and other things I am sure I am not thinking of.

Least favorite things are lack of cupboard space in the kitchen and smaller bedroom closet (but there is another one in the other bedroom. I just really love my big closet at the old apartment). All in all it is way better here but of course I am already nostalgic about my old apartment.

So far so great over here. I am setting some goals to get more organized and I think that moving into this apartment will be a good way to start.

Glad to help. I love your new apartment, so much lighter and spacious. You will get it the way you want it, give yourself time.

I am also incredibly lazy, but I do like my excuses too. I really believe if I were a stay at home mom , I would get the housework done, because that would be my only job. At least that's what I've been telling Jaime.

Can't wait to see it!
