Let's discuss the idea of everything having a place and therefore everything should be in its place.
Is this sounding like some sort of causality dilemma, much akin to that of the chicken or egg?
I'm looking at several 'orgainizing' sites and the pictures are so pretty. Its the kind of pretty where you move closer and stroke the monitor to be nearer the orderly shiny prettiness of it all - tears welling up in your eyes. The possibility of being surrounded by such neatness bordering on orgasmic.
The home that looks like a magazine spread, it CAN be yours!
What the organizing bloggy folk don't tell you is where the hell that place is!
I don't have enough place for all my stuff! I have stuff upon stuff, much of it paper stuff! The tree carnage in my house is horrifying - all those poor dead trees...stop the insanity!
Where are the signs that say, "Put X stuff here"? Is there a secret society I need to join to get the answers to where everything goes? Is there some Big Brother organization that can satellite zoom into my house and create a code map of all my stuff and where that stuff is supposed to reside, along with labels (and perhaps a picture for those of us that are a bit slower on the uptake)? If so, then I want in! I'll do whatever it takes! Oh, and I will try not to blog nekkid anymore, my apologies to the folks who monitor that satellite feed.
Part of me secretly hopes this is all some sort of Matrixy reality where I'm actually laying in a pool of goo and images are being fed to me through wires and tubes.
And if that is the case, then...really? The Powers That Be couldn't have given me the Pottery Barn program, they had to give me the Trailer Park version instead. Did I piss them off in a past life? And, if this is some Matrix existence, is it even possible to have a past life? Are there even Chickens and Eggs in the Matrix?
Whoever is in control of my reality, please fix it and somebody please show me where the place is for my everything so that everything can be in its place!
Do you sit and stare dreamily at organizing sites?
And then do you look around your own house and burst into tears?
Yeah, me either....um....
Spread the link love and let me know your favorite
"Everything it its place..." sites.
Today's post brought to you via 1 cup of coffee.
Of which contained a giant Bailey's Failed Marshmallow.
And stop shaking your head and whispering, "That explains a lot", because I can hear you!!!
And no, I'm not going to discuss the failed marshmallow attempt. It's too painful.
