My White Whale - Office Edition

I'm messy.

I also love collecting things, taking things apart and I get distracted easily. All of these things mix together to make the perfect storm that hits my house on a daily basis. My office and my bedroom are the two worst rooms; the office because I have way too many crafty hobbies; and the bedroom because that's where my clothing explodes every day.

Today I tackled my first white whale: the office!

At several points I must have looked like a confused toddler, sitting in the middle of the room, surrounded by piles of 'organized' things, trying to figure out where to go from there. There may or may not have been some silent weeping at various times. Oh, did I mention that when I start cleaning I lose my patience very quickly? Or that I transform from a tiny woman to an angry bridge troll who foams at the mouth? I didn't? Hmm.

But I did it! It's actually a workable space now, and I even made space for future piles of things (I'm being realistic).

Tomorrow we're suposed to be getting a huge snow storm (60 cm of snow - eep!), so I'll be trapped inside with no escape from cleaning the bedroom. I sure hope Boyfriend is ready for Bridge Troll Nichole 2.0.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

What are your white whales?

Hugs and poops,

    It's only fair - you went shopping with him, more than once! Love means putting up with each others troll alter-egos :)
