    I Categorize Everything

    I've been on a roll lately, cleaning & purging and categorizing everything.  But, when I was pregnant, it was WAY WORSE.  When I was pregnant, I labeled everything.  I even put a label on the label-maker.  And, since I moved into a new house when i was six...

    Organize Myself

    I like to be organized.  Organization is the way to find yourself.  If your organized it's easier to find what your looking for.  Lately I haven't been organized because of my energy level being low.  I need to pull myself together.
