Chaos Eliminated

One of my secret shames is that I am a closet clutterer. I like to pretend that I'm very organized, but my systems usually end up in chaotic piles of crap all over the apartment. I wish I were able to maintain organization on a more consistent basis as clutter drives me crazy! That's why I was so grateful for That Wife's March Lifestyle Challenge: Spring Cleaning. Before Mr. H-B's pesky little surgery, I managed to get everything but my side of our "office"* cleaned up.

I'm kind of ashamed to show just how bad the office had gotten, but here goes:

Mr. H-B's side is pretty clean, actually. The pile of papers all the way to the right includes bank statement from January 2008, because it's been that long since I filed. I still haven't finished filing papers yet, but the next picture shows a pretty good start.

Look at that! You can see the desk again. Now I just need to remember to put the draft blocker away...

Pfff. Like I've ever been as clean. As the top picture.

Oooo pretty! I still maintain that you are my personal domestic goddess, even if you sometimes don't live up to that in your own mind.

P.S. This doesn't mean that I don't also hate you.
