I'm a clean freak and organizational junkie I have no clutter in my home as it would drive me nuts and in some ways its a good thing because my home is not large-I only have 2 closets and one is 3/4 empty and the one in bedroom is 1/2 empty because for some odd reason I like mostly empty closets I go in there and sit at times and get very stressed if there is clutter or things out of place, I like my clothes up by color and all my clothes are in the closet because I like to get dressed inside the closet. My attic storage area is empty cause if I don't see something I forget about it and therefore don't need it so why have it. If I don't wear something for a year I give to Goodwill and that's good but it's also a pain when a year later I go looking for it and it is gone. My cleanliness etc is also a problem because if someone comes to my home they are bound to leave something out of place and they themselves become clutter. I don't think there is a single thing in my home older than say 5 years, except for some pictures and 2-3 family "heirlooms" my mom gave me it's like I have no past and the future means clutter so I'm stuck.

I feel my home is a reflection of whats giong on in my head, it's kind of where I am.

Tomorrow I plan to get all the basics done.

Each little chore is better that none!

My cleaning is pretty much done there is more I could do but there always is more if you look for it.

I'm happy enough living in a respectable house I don't mind a bit of mess.

Now if someone would like to start a finishing your assignment thread I would appreciate it

Opposite here. Finally fully unpacked from the evac and laundry is done. The only thing I haven't put away is the cat carriers because they are actually starting to get comfortable with them around, and I want the fur babies to feel that way in case we ever have to "run away" again.

I can't wait to hear about your trip.

I'm glad you and the babies are safely back home. My bf from high school lives in the Blue Skies park and was evacuated as well.

So glad to hear he is okay. Thanks for the thoughts. They mean more than you will ever know.


My grandfather (who raised me with my grandmother) lived there so that's where I would spend my afternoons starting at 2nd grade (that's when it was a senior park). During the Painted Cave fire, he was ready to evac to our home. It was really scary as he won't evac until the last minute. As with all the past fires I wasn't threatened.

This is the first time we've been in a evac warning/order area. In the past Sis and I were always the ones offering our home to those that had to leave. The reversal was quite frightening.
