This is the first Sunday night in a long time that I actually feel like I'm on top of things. I know that it's not entirely true - I have bills that need paying and I forgot to bring the cord that connects to my camera home from work (so I can't download the photo I took for this blog post from here, so my post will, yet again, be posted sometime after 8:30 AM PST), but for the first time in a while I don't feel like I'm way behind, desperate to catch up.
I had a good weekend. My daughters had playdates, one of which enabled me to make it to yoga (thanks, Lynn!), and we spent Saturday afternoon and night at the San Diego Marriott Marina (and hotel) swimming, hot tubbing, grilling hot dogs, drinking beers (well not the girls), etc. (thanks, T!) But my high point of the weekend was the fact that I organized the top drawer in my bathroom.
I was feeling edgy, unorganized, the antithesis of feng shui (and have been for a while now) until after I went out and bought, brought home, opened up, and put into use a new expandable drawer organizer. (Yes, I am a bit Monkish so this should not be a big surprise.)
But what is surprising to me is just how much relief I felt once I had all my top-drawer toiletries (somewhat analogous to top-shelf liquor) corralled into their own special compartments.
How is it that organizing such a small part of your life can help you to get your entire life into focus?
