31 Days: The Bedroom
While I was tidying up my nightstand, I noticed that the top of Jeff’s dresser and the corner with the chair could use some attention. Please note that Jeff is like the neatest person ever and I’m pretty sure Jeff owns two things in this photo: the cologne and the one pair of sunglasses on top of my jewelry box. A few of his uniforms are on the back of the chair, but I did that because I was too lazy to walk the 13 steps to the closet and find hangers.
I started by clearing off the dresser and wondered why I am always surprised that we have dust.
I put everything away, dusted, and I dragged the plant stand that was sitting next to the chair downstairs so I can list it on Craigslist. I’ve never liked it and we have had it for years, it was in our bathroom at our first house and I didn’t really like it then either. I’m also going to sell the bird prints that have been living in the chair for a good month.
This was a very easy project, I think taking the photos took longer than actually cleaning this side of my bedroom. I’m not sure why it is so hard for me to keep things tidy, but I’m really going to try because the after is so much more calm and lot less dusty.
One of my main goals this month was to finally clean and organize my office, but I’m positive I’m not going to make it in there. I’m thinking it might take a more than a few days and I just don’t think I can muster up the strength at this point. I probably should have started in there, but that’s ok, that’s how hindsight works, I guess. Perhaps when the 31 days are over, I can tackle one project a week, like Jules. My office is a disaster, it’s probably worse than when I started cleaning at the beginning of the month, but I as I type this from my $24.99 chair from Goodwill in my clean bedroom with the organized nightstand, I am okay with that. I might not be able to actually work in my office, but I’m getting there and that’s called progress.
P.S. My closet needs to be cleaned.
