If you're having a bad day...

I may be able to help you feel better.

I just washed Avery's diaper.

You might be thinking to yourself now: That's great!  She is so green.  

But those of you who know me in real life are laughing because you know I mean a Pamper's Baby Dry not a cloth one actually fit for the washing machine.  Uh, gross.  At least it wasn't a dirty diaper.

And sometimes I even have to dress like this to go to our laundry room:

So next time you're feeling sorry for yourself that the laundry has taken over your life (please say I'm not the only one who feels like this!), be thankful that your dryer is located next to your washing machine, inside your house and that you've probably never washed a diaper on accident before. :)

But on a positive note, recently two of my close friends in Edinburgh characterized me as an organized person.  Again, if you know me well, you're laughing, well actually maybe you're not since I managed to fool my other friends.  Maybe this isn't a positive after all since apparently I am able to keep up some sort of organizational facade.
So in the interest of full disclosure:

This is what my desk looks like this very minute.
(And it actually looks better than it usually does.)

though I am in full time spring cleaning/get your act together/ProjectOrganizeYourEntireLife mode.  And well, baby steps.

I got inspired by this:

Our pantry/hall closet...yikes! (Mel, those are your chocolate chips!)

And this post.

I was surprised when reading the comments that many readers were overwhelmed by the fact that this woman seemed to pull off all of the feats she mentioned.  I was actually really disappointed that she hadn't - I need someone to show me it's possible!  So I was even more inspired by this post.

So I am currently in the middle of organizing my whole life and will get back to you on my progress...

Happy Tuesday!!
