***Some members of the Hertzog family are miniature hoarders.
I will admit in a non boastful way that you can visit our house and 90% of the time it will appear clean.
If you were to open a drawer or closet, you would risk injury.
The basement should require a waiver.
The outside of our house looks like we are putting on a live performance of Charlotte’s Web that characters are lots of webs and leaves.
A BEST friend TOLD HER DAUGHTER MY GARAGE WAS UNSAFE. She thought I wasn’t listening. I will never forget that turning point in our friendship. 😂
For the past year, I have let the “behind the scenes”of our house GO and it is out of hand.
Life is more important than a clean cabinet, but I was finding the more I looked at the cabinet the increasingly stressful life was becoming.
Mom Battle : Organize the ______(Storage, Garage, Closest, Cabinets, etc…)
Shut the Door????
A burst of energy erupted from deep inside my stomach Sunday afternoon and moved me to begin the process of decluttering my bathroom while mentally listing purchases that I needed to make to help complete the project.
My small triumph left me feeling happier.
Sunday night, I went to bed with a fire inside me as I declared to Dave “this house will be completely organized by December 24.”
Monday– I hung with my Mom and Dad. Accomplished nothing. Talked about my goals though.
Tuesday– I went to Ross and shopped for some helpful items to begin my bathroom organization . This was monumental. I HATE going into stores.
I then researched ALL day. AKA- I procrastinated.
I read these samples.
I googled different programs:
My parents were there listening as I told them my plans to give Hertzog Contracting some competition. I want to turn my hall closet into a Pinterest inspired home office. My Mom didn’t know you could “even do that!!!” That Pinterest is something else!
My Dad thought I was speaking a different language. That has nothing to do with the brain tumor.
I researched more.
Research Question: Is there something out there I can buy to really help me execute a plan?
This was ALL ACCESS STRESS- The possibilities with this program would be
A) a reminder of just how much work I have to do
B) shed light on things that are not current stressors
C) all of the above
So at 12:00 I revisited the bathroom and picked up where I left off.
Here is what it looked like after I started today:
At 1, I stopped to write this…. It is 1:37. I am still writing and need to shower so it looks like I did something today. Thank God Dave doesn’t read my blog.
It is actually now 2:25. Proofs, changes… have to get kids soon.
