The other bonus of doing my own organization challenge instead of someone else's? I can take two weeks for the first week if I want to. And I want to. Shortly after I made my resolve to keep my counters clean, Hubs broke the handle on the dishwasher. He is now the only one in the house who can open the dishwasher. Bonus: it's harder for me to do the dishes. Not-so-bonus: he then left town for the week, and I was stuck with dirty dishes and nowhere to put them.
So I'm giving myself another week to get that under control, but I'm not stopping myself from moving on. My goal for this week? Read magazines. This is my current pile of to-reads:
So this weeks goal: read the magazines. And catalogs, and mail in general. (though since we got our magic letter bin, our mail isn't a huge problem)
That's my plan, and I'm sticking to it.
