Back Home!

Hello Friends!

We are back from our Spring Break Ski Getaway (I just named it that) and have entered back into the real world. We had a BLAST on our vacation and we were NOT ready to come back. Vacations fly by waaaaaaaay too fast!! I will have pictures up to recap our vacation soon.

I have Thursday and Friday off of work this week thanks to Spring Break so I decided that I would be spend the next two days relaxing. I had visions of pedicures, shopping and watching endless hours of trash TV in my mind.

Then I had a thought. One silly little thought that took away any dream I had for my mini home-vacation.

The thought? To organize our bedroom closet.

If only I could turn back time. I would take that thought and send it back to the pits of hell where it belongs.

You see, before I got married I had a HUGE closet all to myself. I kept it nice and organized. Everything was in its own category and I knew what shirt or pant went where. If somebody took a shirt out of my closet I would very nicely ask them to just put it on my bed and I would put it back in its spot. I didn't want to take the chance of them putting one shirt out of place.

Then I got married and I no longer had a HUGE closet to myself. I have one side of a medium sized closet.

Shortly after I began using my new medium sized closet, my strict closet rules went downhill and now I barely even recognize who I have become.

I am ashamed to admit, I have winter sweaters mixed in with short sleeve shirts. I have tank tops mixed in with long sleeve shirts. Heaven forbid, I have stripes mixed in with solids.

Apparently, I decided to follow up my 5 days of relaxation and vacation with complete and utter torture. Well, closet torture.

So here I go....time to go back to organizing my clothes.

I hope you all have had a great week. I have been reading your blogs through my phone but I wasn't able to comment.

I hope to finish organizing my closet by tonight!

So the closet goes when you get married, huh? I might never get married - because I am psycho about my closet. Scary psycho.
I'm glad you had fun on your vaca! I know you hate the vacation letdown though!

I absolutely LOVE how crazy you are about an organized closet!! Do you like to organize everything? or just your clothing? Because I'm pretty much obsessed with organization in general...

however, a husband brings a whole new dimension to that. So... I am a teacher and my classroom is PERFECTLY organized, my home... I hold with loose hands... because of a sweet boy named Ty.

Post pics of your closet!! yeah~!

MiMi said...

So glad you're back! I took a day off last Friday and also had my closet torture. It was long overdue, and I, too, had stripes and solids, and winter and summer, all mixed together.

I WILL say that the finished product will make you feel SO proud of yourself, though! Keep going! You'll be glad you did!

I too lost my closet when I got married. Oh the things we give up for these boys!!!

I am still 4 years later trying to make my closet organized enough to make me happy. I started with moving his stuff to the guest closet!!!
