Now that the kids are back in school, I’ve got time to tackle all the things I’ve let slide during the kids’ summer vacation.
One of which is the lurking depths of each and every closet we’ve got…shudder…
You may have guessed by now that I’m not the world’s most organized person.
I need help to keep things tidy. Way back when I lived in Florida, we had double the closet space, and there were neato little shelves built in that made it much easier to tame the mess monster.
Now we’re in New Jersey with teeny tiny, fewer closets (all shelf-less) and instead of the stately opening to Narnia upon entry, it’s more like ‘Fight for your very survival against dangers untold – IF you dare!’
…and sadly, there isn’t a friendly Mr. Tumnus the faun to help with the tidying up after the innards of my closet tumble out.
For me, organization only occurs if either A) My husband does all the tidying up for me (not his favorite activity – go figure!), or B) I have Order imposed on me from the outside.
And since we’re a bit closet-deprived in our new, smaller home, we’re thinking of buying ourselves one or two high-quality wardrobes.
Now this is more like it! This is what I want for Christmas!
Rather than one great gaping big cavern, there are all those neato cubbies, drawers, hanger poles and shelves to neatly place things upon!
How lovely it would be to have everything tidied away, instead of our home being one great game of ‘hop to it’ as we leap and bound (like frolicking deer) from one empty spot on the floor to the next one…over there…
Of course, I could always just scamper off to Narnia. (I hear Reepicheep gives excellent tours to newcomers!)
Or does the Goblin King collect mess if you wish that away?
