    Meticulous Messines

    I far prefer to organize the lives, events, and belongings of others than my own. Personally I am quite lazy about keeping things put away and in place. I can never find anything in a neat orderly room. When I do clean house, I rearrange everything because I can't remember...

    Once I Lost a Burrito In My Room

      I try, but sometimes things get a little out of control.

    It's Over There Under That Pile of Stuff...

    Not sure if I'm just lazy sometimes.  Split personality I guess.  I swing between being extremely tidy and organised and horribly untidy.  All or nothing.  I can always find stuff though, so I guess chaos theory wins out most of the time.

    Organised Mess

    I call it organised mess. I know where everything is, it's rather organised. Unfortunately, to some, my organisation looks like a mess, when it's not. So, it's come to be known as organised mess. Sure, I can be messy, but I make sure I organise it!!

    I Try My Darnedest

    I try to keep everything neat but then I can be so lazy sometimes. I will go on a cleaning kick: scrub the walls, the floor, dust everything! But with two kids and a dog I turn around and there is a giant hand print on the patio door that I just cleaned.  *sigh

    I Like To Be Neat...

    When most people come over to my place they always say something about how neat it is. None of them have seen my bedroom!

    Go With the Flow

    I've tried to fight it for years.  But, it turns out, I am just not an organized human - i've determined that it is genetic and is simply futile to fight it.  However, that doesn't mean I am a total slob.  There are limits.

    I Live With Someone Messy

    I live with someone messy, and I've given up trying to keep things organized. With my own stuff I notice that the things I feel very clear about I keep well organized and the things I feel conflicted about get out of hand really easily.

    My Thoughts Have to Be Organised..

    I Never Fold My Underwear And Rarely My Socks.

    I never have. I just don't see the ******* point. These days, I make sure that all of my socks are the same color because I'll just pull whatever out and wear them. This has stopped everyone from inquiring as to why I don't have matching socks. Who cares? They're clean.
