If you start it... FINISH IT!

I'm easily distracted and often get off task, especially when it comes to cleaning and organizing. Most of the time my distractions have names: Carson, Brody, and Jaxson (my kids). LOL However, they aren't the only distractions. Just yesterday half way through cleaning the kitchen I found myself standing in the laundry room cleaning it! Let me explain, I went into the laundry room to drop off the dirty dish towels and rags. As I was doing that I noticed how dirty the top of the dryer was with lint and dust. Next thing I know I'm wiping the washer and dryer and sweeping the floor. Um... HELLO! What happen to the kitchen? Once my brain clicked back on I quickly finished what I was doing and went back into the kitchen.

The chore I'm famous for not finishing is LAUNDRY. On any given day you will most likely find a basket of clean folded laundry sitting in my upstairs hallway waiting to be put away. Actually putting the laundry away seems to be such a struggle for me. I'm always on top of washing and folding. Then I walk the basket upstairs and I tell myself "I'll put this away after dinner or before the kids go to bed". By the time that rolls around I've forgotten about the laundry.

I have to give myself credit, though, because on Sunday I washed, folded, AND put away five loads of laundry. However, a load of towels sat in the dryer until Tuesday. LOL

Since beginning my war on clutter I often find myself reminiscing. I do it with everything: photos, toys, clothes, and knick knacks. It's VERY distracting.

So... my new goal:
