I'm a dork!

I sat at the kitchen table, eating my Special K Red Berries cereal in the pre-dawn light (that sounds really dramatic, but it was actually about 6:15am) - and I was reading my Real Simple catalog.
It's silly - but I *love* that catalog. It's huge and thick and full of wonderful, practical ideas that I never get around to implementing. But I like to read about them. In the interest of saving money, I'll be letting my subscription run out (sob) but I have my back issues saved up, so I can always go back and re-read the fabulous tips from two years ago. I'll never lack for useful household hints.
I really love being organized - but I also seem to be really great at collecting clutter. And currently, I use all of my organizing energy at work - my office is lovely. I wish my home looked so good.
Maybe when I'm a stay-at-home mom, my organizing energy will be refocused. (I'm sure it will - but onto things like "showering" and "getting dressed" - not "having a place for everything and everything in its place.") For now, I daydream that someday, I'll have the time/inclination/money to beautifully organize my home just like the pictures in the magazine.
Or at least I could send in a picture and get them to "makeover" my house as an example of how to save someone from the brink of organizational disaster.
Someday. A girl gets to dream, right? :)

I know EXACTLY what you mean! My classroom is lovely and my house frustrates me. :) Even though I really, really like to be organized and I have good ideas... it seems that only about every 6 months or so do I get the energy up to go on an organizational binge and then my house looks lovely. For about 2 days. ;-)
