Surprise! It's Good To Be Organized
It was a lazy Sunday morning. I decided to sleep in late underneath my favorite comforter along with my furry friends, Madison and Maxwell when I got "the call". It was Brad, checking in to see how things were going and oh, by the way, "We will be home in 20 minutes". "We?" "Yes, me and Bill." "and oh, we are going to offer him our shower!"
Well, not quite the call I was expecting. Did I panic? Nope! Why? Because I am organized, silly! I got up, made the bed, showered and dressed, and picked up the very few things that were laying about the house. I even took out a fresh towel and soap for Bill! All in 20 minutes!
Being organized sure has its benefits and this is one of them. Even when there are surprises, you don't have to panic. By having my shower and sink area organized, I can get ready fast. By having my closet organized, I can pick out an outfit quickly and look put together in minutes. And, by having systems in place in other areas in the house, there's only a quick pick up needed.
Now, if I could just train Madison and Maxwell to put their toys away. . . !
