Day #20 - Organization Challenge - I'm Back!!! What Happened to My Pretty Laundry Room?

Hey Organizing Buddies!! I'm back! Where have you been, you ask? Well, I went on a European trip for 3 weeks, got sick for 3 weeks after I returned from my trip, and basically, went downhill from there. I'm re-emerging from my "denial" phase and I "think" I'm ready to tackle the mess that I call my home.

Honestly, I'm not sure what happened. It's funny how starting off on the wrong foot at the start of the new year can really kill your spirits. Well, after being in a state of denial, I decided that life is too damn short to be wasting it on being indecisive and feeling deflated.

I want to live my life being happy and well, I can't be if I let things that are so insignificant bother me. I decided that tackling my laundry is first and foremost. Above is how my laundry room looks right now and below is what it looked liked prior to leaving for my European trip. How sad that I did not maintain it. I would have maintained if I didn't end up catching a nasty cold after my trip and feeling sorry for myself afterwards. Just silliness!!! I really can annoy myself sometimes! LOL!

This photo is how I want my laundry room to look. I'm in the process of washing all the laundry, folding them, and putting them away in the proper drawers, shelves, and closet. How is your laundry room looking? Is it nice and neat or is it like my laundry room? Well, if it's a mess like mine, then this challenge is for you!!!

Today's challenge is to wash all your laundry, fold them, and put all of them away before you tackle any other chore! Got it?

Let me know how you did when you're done. . .come on. . .let's get going! Play along with me so I don't feel so alone in this process!! LOL!

Hi Maria! Missed your fab posts. It's so funny that I always feel like I'm reading something I should have written (or wish I did) when I read your posts. Maybe it's because you're so honest & articulate in your writing. LOVE it! I know exactly how you feel about the new years & being sick thing, but deciding not to feel defeated. So true it's profound! YOu are amazing, seriously awesome. (AND how did you know my poor DH was begging for some clean clothes this morning?) LOL. Hugs & happy clothes foldin'
