Trying to get organized...

I often wonder if I'm the only one that sits around and wishes she were more organized? I wonder if I'm the only Mother that has to wait 10 minutes every day for one of her kids to find a missing shoe! No matter how many times I tell them where to leave their shoes, they manage to always carry them off and of course lose them!
The kids will be out of school in 2 weeks and I'm super excited! Not only for the fact that they'll be home everyday, but also I have things planned. I'm going to try and get organized, as simple as that! I'm going to try to have a place for everything and everything in it's place kind of motto! Right now on a daily basis I wake up to a messy house. I just want to walk from my bed to the kitchen without stepping on a toy!

I'm not a super strict parent, so it's hard for me to force my kids to not have toys out of their bedrooms. I feel as though this is their house the same as it is mine, and a house is meant to be lived in! Now with that said, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they picked up every room, LOL!

I think they have too much stuff. We have a small house (for 6 people) and everybody, including me and my husband (especially his books!), we all have too much stuff, we need to downsize and donate a ton of stuff!

So here I sit typing, in front of me is a very cluttered computer desk, clutter everywhere I can see and a mountain load of laundry that needs to be done. I do laundry about 5 days a week and it always needs to be done! That is life and I'm not complaining, I'm thankful that I don't have to go to a laundromat.

I'm just rambling now and really need to get off here and clean. I have family coming in tomorrow and I don't want them to trip over the tons of toys scattered everywhere. The big kids did clean their rooms yesterday, so hopefully the little kids won't mess them up while they're at school.

I read a funny saying, it said: If you want a clean house, invite somebody over for dinner.

So maybe I'm not that weird after all... LOL!
