I have this little Pinterest board…..perhaps maybe a few Pinterest boards….that is there for days like today. I am talking about my “All In A Row” board. You see I have had a very crazy beginning to the New Year. One that confirms the summons that January beckons. I need to purge. Get more organized. I am a fairly organized person. I don’t have a lot of room for extra stuff. And if you ask my kiddos teachers I am constantly throwing away papers I may or may not have been supposed to keep.
One chaotic Monday morning this month there was a divine intervention I truly believe. It had been a hard week. Actually 2012 was a hard year. But anyways that week had been really tough. The weekend tougher. And Monday morning. Someone was out to get me. I probably don’t talk enough about my spiritual life. I’m not the preachy type. But boy oh boy. I have no doubt that my Sweet Jesus sent a crew of angels to protect me that day. Listen to this song by Rodney Atkins if you haven’t before. I was going through Hell. But I wasn’t going to stop there. I kept going, praying and believing that God would get me through. And He did. And I believe it’s because of Him I am still alive. I won’t tell you the details and some of you that know some of them might think I’m exaggerating; but I’m convinced. So…. very long story put very shortly, the last attempt to my destruction ended in my car being totaled (after we all safely evacutated the building we were in when it happened, someone had hit my parked car which hit the building and the gas line. I told you!). Yes, the lovely minivan that I carted my children around. My livestock. The one that once lost it’s steering wheel while I was driving. Good times. I actually did love that van. One of the reasons is that it was paid for. Which brings me to my need to get organized. I couldn’t find the title anywhere! I could find every other paper from the van; even receipts from oil changes! So this week I re ordered the title and am organizing all of our important documents. I love this photo and instructions can be found by clicking on it.
I don’t plan on stopping there. I NEED to organize my pantry and mud room as well. Here are my inspiration photos for those. If you find any vintage lockers like these. Call me. Please!
Well gals. I have lots and lots of work to do. Do you have any organizing tips to share? I’d love to hear them! Oh and thanks for listening!Comments are welcome!
