Keep Slogging On…Entering the Danger Zone

Big cleaning jobs take time.  I have to remind myself it didn’t get this messy in a day, it won’t be cleaned in a day.

Currently headed into finishing up week 2 on the craft room.  Progress is made every day towards the goal.

  • 4 totes full of fabric are removed and ready for donation.
  • most of the remaining fabric is put away
  • 3 lawn & leaf sized bags of garbage have been removed.
  • All the furniture is in place.

Now tends to be the time where I slow down because I’m tired.  Or give up because everything’s at least sort of in place, even though there’s 3 milk crates full of random crap next to my desk and a huge set of shelves that needs to have all the stuff pulled off, organized, and hopefully decluttered a bit.

The shelves to be tamed

This is the danger zone for me.  The almost there but could possibly be good enough to stop if you start ignoring what’s left to go.

Except that it’s not.  good enough, that is.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of this quote:  “Perfection is temporary, good enough lasts longer”.  It saves my sanity on a regular basis from the depths of stress about not being perfect.  But right now, my craft room is not good enough.  How do I know?  I haven’t finished my project plan.

20. organize patterns
21. sort stuff on shelves/organize crap

That’s what’s left.  I’m hoping this will result in a few more totes/bags full of stuff leaving the room.  Once I have completed these steps, I should be able to comfortably step back and know I’ve done what I set out to do.  And post pictures.  This is another bonus of having the project plan.  I know when I’m not done. 🙂

I just have to slog on a bit further.  Next week it should be complete.
