Warning… things are getting real here today.
Real real ugly.
This is my bathroom situation. The photo isn’t even watermarked because honestly, if someone wants to steal this hot mess and use it for their own commercial purposes, more power to them.
Here are the facts.
The bathroom in the apartment is TINY. And there are ZERO cabinets in which to stash towels, toiletries, or any other random thing you don’t want your guests to see when they come over and use your loo. Who am I kidding? My disaster bathroom is part of the reason why we don’t invite many people over.
The lighting is also poor. Or it doesn’t photograph well. Whatever. Our bath water looks like it is some shade of brown. But it isn’t. And I totally had to crop a naked child out of the picture on the bottom right.
Anyway, every time I need to use deodorant, brush my teeth, or do just about thing involving a product you see above, I have to play Medicine Cabinet Jenga.
And, as you can probably guess… I LOSE every time, curse under my breath, and roll my eyes.
This happens at least four times a day.
Because Medicine Cabinet Jenga is addicting… like Candy Crush Saga only with real life application and purpose.
The other day, after the Mickey Mouse band aids fell on me for the third time this week, I discovered that pink/orange reddish box on the bottom row was ACTUALLY EMPTY (ugh.. WHO DOES THAT? Actually, I know who and he’s basically otherwise a saint so we’ll cut him some slack here). And I realized this was a really simple fix. I could CLEAN AND ORGANIZE my medicine cabinet.
It took less than five minutes to clean it and took my stress level down three notches.
What is the one project you’re avoiding these days? If you did it, how would it change your happiness level? Let me know in the comments below!

Your comment about the photo watermark made me howl. You are a giver! 😀
I *know* you are right. I *need* to finally clean out my bathroom drawers and under sink area. (The fight to put my hairdryer away every day is so hard, I just leave it on the counter now. Sad)
This may be just the push I needed to do it today. I’m going to!! (maybe) –Lisa

I have so much cleaning and organizing to do it is not even funny! What I need to do is put aside just a half hour or hour a day and do little projects to get myself going…but what would I prefer to do? Visit blogs….

Well, Michelle I’m glad that you came to visit here instead of cleaning! What has been working for me is really insanely focused 15 minute chucks to really blow away a project. I find that if I try to clean with no real purpose I wander from project to project and NOTHING is accomplished!
Good grief is this me! I try so hard to avoid organizing my office it’s not even funny! I will find any excuse to put it off. But eventually I too will have to pull up my big girl panties and do it. I feel your pain!

Yay! We can tackle things together! BUT, remember you JUST HAD a baby! Give yourself a little time!
There is so much I need to do it’s not even funny. Maybe after the kids move out?
Love the Jenga reference. I know your pain!

I cannot wait until the day I can clean my house and it WILL STAY that way. So much of my day is spent picking up stuff that doesn’t even belong to me!
Medicine Cabinet Jenga… Totally know what you mean!
I know that I put off projects because of fear. What if I can’t finish? What if it doesn’t go the way I planned? What if it’s just too big a mess? But when I actually do the things I need to do, or take a small bite off of something big, it’s not nearly as awful as I thought it would be. Thanks for this reminder!

You can do it Marie! I know exactly what you mean about projects seeming too big to tackle! I’ve found the best way is to just take a small manageable bite and steamroll it from there!
