If only

If only I could have an afternoon with no interruptions, I might get a chance to clean out my in-box.

If only I could wrap up this big project I could accomplish some of the other stuff I've been putting off.

If only I had some time to clean up my desk I might get a better handle on organizing my office.

If only I had some kid-free time at home, I could tackle some of the clutter that's taken over our home and threatens to choke us all in our sleep.

If only I liked cleaning more, I wouldn't fall so far behind all the time.

If only I'd been born with some of the organizational/cleaning genes that seem to be missing from my brain, I wouldn't have any reason to write this "if only" list, 'cause my office and house would be SPARKLING!

If only I weren't so easily distracted, I'd be getting some work done instead of writing this blog.

If only we could afford to hire a housecleaner again. (Hey - is there such a thing as an office-cleaner?)

If only I liked cleaning HALF as much as I like wasting time, reading, writing, cycling, talking, eating, sitting...

Ah shut up with yer whining and just GET SOME WORK DONE!

I hestiate to write a comment because I know you should be working when you read this.:) I will anyway.

If it makes you feel any better...I like wasting time, reading, walking, writing, sitting...much better than housecleaning too. I think that's why I like the Folk Festival so much. You just hang around for a weekend, eating junk food and drinking gallons of water and visiting with other like-minded people who probably have messy houses too.

I can't tell you how many things need done, and here I am reading blogs instead.

However, I make myself feel better by telling myself that Mr. Personality will never remember the messy house. But I think he will remember all the things that we do with him instead of cleaning the house. I made the house less of a priority when I had him, and I haven't looked back since!

In light of what you wrote, I just read a quote that might "help": "One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries."
