Staycation Time

I could wish I were going somewhere away from it all.....but if wishes were horses then beggars would ride.
Actually I'm just happy to have 5 days off in a row and will totally enjoy this staycation by sleeping in, taking naps as needed and maybe even getting a lot of de-cluttering and cleaning done at home.  
Just me and the cats so the quiet is nice and I can do what I please at whatever time of day or night.  
I'd show photos of the clutter and mess but you really don't want to see it, trust me.  I have just finished a great book on organizing for the right-brained creative person and now know why I have such a hard time keeping stuff organized and under control.
It's the aliens coming in at night and messing things up!
Not really, it's me being lazy, not having designated places for all my craft things to go and not putting things in places that make sense and that I can get to easily when I need them.  I've been working on that by buying some container bins and drawers when they are on sale and trying to keep like stuff together.  Now I have a better idea of how to do it and hopefully make it stick by actually putting stuff back when I'm done with it.
The funny thing is that I have always been ultra neat, tidy and organized at work.  I guess because space has always been at a premium and there is always a place for everything.  That's what I'm trying to achieve at home now.   Wish me luck and I'll post some photos when I'm done, hopefully before I go back to work on Tuesday.

I have little piles of projects everywhere. Most of the time now I don't know what I'm doing next.
Oh well.
I don't seem to care.

Oh, the memories that come flooding back....! I still think it's aliens. ET's not illegals.
