Hello my name is Veronica and I'm a hoarder. It might be time to call the television crew in.
This weekend I painted and re-arranged my living room. I spent 2 days on it and was sore by the time I was done (well mostly done). Luckily mom and sister took turns watching my Princess and little Nugget as the wonderful blogger at The Butter Ninja (I can't believe I don't know her name) referred to the baby. She wrote a post recently about being a craft hoarder and the funny thing is that I read it right after I had finished with my living room and had a discussion with Mom.
I was happy and feeling accomplished at the living room until Mom came up to me and said "Nice job. Is the garage (a.k.a the eBay room) next?" My response was "I'm getting to that." To which to proceeded to drag me into the garage and tell me "Watch out don't trip over that hundred dollar bill there. Or that one over there." No I do not have money all over my garage. At least not literally. But figuratively yes I do. Her point was each stack of treasures I have waiting to list on eBay is at least a hundred worth of merchandise if it was sold. And it won't get sold unless it gets listed. I tried to ignore her and sat down on my couch to catch up on blogs and I read The Butter Ninja's post. It was almost like she was yelling at me too (ok maybe that was just my guilt creeping up).
Of course I have a million excuses. I have a 3 year old and a baby. I work full time. I am busy. Last night I didn't get home until almost 8 pm. After work I took my girls to an appointment. Got home long enough to get my Princess dressed for gymnastics (a make up class). Then off to Target we went for more formula. Today is Parents as Teachers for my Princess. Tomorrow is PTA and ballet. Thursday it's more gymnastics. Friday I have a meeting with one of the social workers. I barely have time to breathe.
So my goal this week is to tackle my eBay room. To get it organized. Purge stuff that isn't selling, List as much as I can. Make it look presentable. Even if I only do 15 minutes here and there when I get a chance it's something and will add up. And if I don't start then I will never finish.
I'm curious how other people get motivated and keep up with it all. Everyone is so busy. Am I the only lazy one?
(I was going to include a picture of the garage but I was afraid it would give people nightmares).
