You can see that I have one cabinet neatly organized, and it will *stay* that way allll day. I've taken the top picture so that I can have some photographic evidence that yes, I DID get around to cleaning once. It's pretty discouraging. As I cleaned this one cabinet, other areas of the kitchen begin to look even more messy than usual. I have gotten this cabinet and one drawer cleaned, but several other cabinets and two full shelves in the basement are crying out for my attention.
I get to them as I can, because my arms are usually holding a baby or doing something else like homeschooling or meal preparation. (I also have to have a daily computer fix, else I shall go mad. I shall.) I have absolutely got to wash the curtains in this room as well. I remember remarking to myself that I got these done last a few months before the baby got here.... oh... it wasn't THIS baby, it was baby J! No wonder they're in such need of a washing. I feel as though I am constantly running and never catching up, because there is always the "usual" that must be done as well. And my children insist on things like "meals" and "clean laundry" on a regular basis.
