The past two days have been most-glorious in terms of the weather. One of those classic times where spring is definitely in the air. And time, of course, for spring cleaning. It’s always been a true chore for me and this year is no different. Such is the tale of David’s spring cleaning.
Keeping things neat and today has never been one of my strong suits. I can blame some of it on my ADD, but then again, parts of it I think are unrelated to that. When it comes to tidying things up/cleaning, I’m definitely out of my comfort zone.
I tend to be one of those people who finds it difficult to throw anything away. Especially when it comes to my collections of signs and books, it’s like pulling teeth to get rid of anything. As a result, I have a LOT of things in and around the house and it all gets to be a bit much sometimes.
I don’t think I’d classify myself as a hoarder, but I at least exhibit some of those characteristics. I do have some limits as to what I’ll allow in my house. Having said that, I have a storage unit that I’ve been paying for these past twenty years that I haven’t visited in quite a while.
So this upcoming spring break, which starts on Friday of this upcoming week, will be my commitment to getting things in order around the house. I’ve already made a small start on it and can already feel better about my living area. I’m going to make a list of “to-dos” before Friday so I’ll be able to hold myself accountable. I’m also planning on taking before and after pictures, which I may or may not choose to share.
So here’s to cleaning and organizing my living area and creating a space I’d be glad to share with anyone.
