I have 7 tabs open on my laptop (other than this one and tumblr):
- 30 Days to an Organized Life!
- 30 Days to Minimalism
- 30 Day Ab Challenge
- 30 Day- Happiness Challenge
- How to get into the Splits in 30 Days Challenge
- 30 Days to a Clean Home
- 30 Day Writing Challenge
Judging by my subconscious hoarding of websites, my life is clearly a disaster that I assume I can solve in 30 days. It takes me 30 days just to put the vacuum cleaner back after I use it, you’d think I’d be more realistic with my goals. I need to get my life in order, I really do. I also need to get my writing in order. I think I saw something for NaNoWriMo once that I might try, probably another 30 day challenge.
I know the 30 day lists seem gimmicky and ridiculous and they probably are, but the whole deal with the challenges thing for me is that I think it takes the thinking out of it which is really my biggest hurdle in life. The thinking. Also the clutter. And the procrastination. And the internet.
I started writing this on April 1st but I stopped because it felt like I was trying to subconsciously pull an April Fool’s joke on myself. It’s now April 27. lol.
I really need to get organized though because we’re moving in exactly 2 months and I am not packing 37 broken crayons, my bag of scrap fabric, the shoes that the sole fell off of three years ago, and whatever that thing is behind the sofa that I don’t want to touch but I’m hoping is a sock. So as much as I want to do the splits, I think a 30 day declutter challenge is probably a better way to spend a month. I have not given up on the splits though, so don’t put the Mary Lou Retton leotard away just yet.
I’m need to make this short because my husband is dragging me with him to our storage unit to get rid of stuff so I’ll probably be crying about stuff animals, a broken bass guitar, and baby clothes in about 15 minutes. Wish me luck.
