Terri's Get Organized Journal: Week 5

Dear Diary,

Well, here we are in the final week of the Community Challenge! I've fallen behind. I thought my kitchen and bathroom were going to be a breeze, so I didn't get right to them like I did my closets. Now I sit with boxes of "stuff" in my bathroom and things falling out of my kitchen cupboards. So with that ahead of me, we move into the home office. I've decided to get my bathroom finished before I tackle this assignment!

It's been an interesting five weeks. I, who hated doing dishes, now can't wait to get them washed, dried, and put away! My beds are made every morning; and my laundry sorters aren't overflowing anymore! I'm ordering a candle "lamp" for my kitchen (mood, you know!). And I'm looking forward to creating a "Zen"-sational home!

I created a list of everything I need to organize. The list is overwhelming; but I'm going to pick a project each week. I've set a target date of July 31, 2001, to have my house in order. Hopefully with this order in my home will come order in my life!

The official Community Challenge will soon be over. But for some of us the real challenge is just beginning! I'm going to try to keep my home page updated with progress reports and pictures. Anyone dare to join me?

Thank you to Kate, Pam, Regina, Melanie, Brenda, and all the Community Challengees for making this all happen and work!
