And it’s freaking me out. Seriously.
I’m currently working on the holiday gift guides for ConstantChatter. That means, I have a LOT of boxes, envelopes, folders, papers and packing peanuts coming into this house. And like last year, it seems that I’m just stacking the sample products on top of other sample products. Which really means I just have boxes filled with other boxes and envelopes and papers and stray packaging peanuts.
Add to that my husbands standard mess (socks, ticket stubs, guitars and guitar paraphernalia, CDs, magazines, work crap that I’m afraid to touch in case it’s important, etc.) and well, we’ve got ourselves a bit of a giant mess.
It might not have been too bad if the landlords hadn’t also decided that this is the perfect time to manure the yard. And just the right time for that cat to do some massive shedding.
Yes, we’re a mess I tell ya! And I’m still working on the gift guides, so I’m still a few days away from being able to do anything about it.
The sad part is that we decided that this semester, a portion of my UCLA money would go towards getting a cleaning lady. Thing is, before I can even consider getting a cleaning lady, I need to actually clear the piles of clutter (or in the bedroom, clothes) off of everything or I’ll just be wasting the money.
Next year I’m starting those damn gift guides in September!
