I've spent a lot of time lately thinking about how far I have come in my personal organization and house management and my economic situation. I have kept a budget for almost two years now and am trying a cash wallet system and looking for ways to make more and spend less. I've had some pretty huge goals I have been working on. I'm going on week two of being a vegetarian, which is way harder than I had initially thought it would be but the rewards are definitely delicious. And I finished my first meditation class and am starting another. I feel like a much more calm and collected and focused person. But there is still one area of my life that makes me absolutely insane:
I feel like it just spills over into every other aspect of my life. It is the catch all for everything I don't know what to do with and it has one corner dedicated to 5 years of college books and papers and insanity and another corner that has everything birth-15 months that belongs to Odin and still TONS and TONS of stuff that I have been slowly cleaning out from when my parents lived here.
This is a decent sized house but literally half of it us unused and unusable.
I decided recently that between grad school and my first ever teacher salary that carries through the summer that I am going to spend this summer talking online classes and tackling my basement.
These are some of the things I am excited about that I want to do.
|I don't know if I will actually make two desks, because honestly I don't have use for two, but I love this uses of a bookshelf as part of a desk.|
|And I think I'm going to do this to the inside of my basement door (a.k.a. the side the toddler can't get to).I love this.|
Even just thinking about having my life a little more together makes me feel better about the fact that I have time or sleep or immuse system right now. Come on summer, get here faster.
