My Messy Office
My need to clean is something I am working to overcome. It's necessary that I overcome this, because frankly, I DON'T HAVE TIME TO CLEAN! It's the one thing on my to-do list that matters the least, but it's the one thing I probably end up devoting the most time to. WHY?? Because for me mess = stress. I get paralyzed in a mess and can't function till it's cleaned.
Check out my office and see why I haven't been feeling very motivated to be productive lately. Please note, I use the term "office" very loosely. It's more like a storage space. My office is wherever Isaac is. Or it's the couch if Isaac is in bed.
Yup, that's right folks, reading, planning, writing, cutting, gluing, preparing... None of it happens in this space. Looks are very deceiving.
I need more bookshelves. I have stacks on the floors, and boxes of books in our storage closet just crying out for a home!
Containers and supplies used for painting projects. Where do I even put these? Add storage cabinet to that wish list of mine!
Need a new system for sorting and storing materials for each lesson...
Love this bag for toting my stuff in each week. It's like my very own Mary Poppins bag. Everything just always seems to fit. I can't always lift it... but it all fits!
Don't you love my collection of dried-up pens and unsharpened pencils?
I love my office... when it's clean. I wish I was able to spend more time working in it. Someday. Till then, it will continue to un-effectively store all my supplies, books, and garbage.
Coming Thursday: Book Nook sharing! And this time there's a GIVEAWAY involved. So snap some photos of your space and get ready to post them later this week to be entered to win a prize!
