December Goals

As I'm cleaning house today I've come to the conclusion that I definitely have OCD!  I'm still living out of boxes, or more accurately, have unopened boxes all over the place and boxes that I have opened, but don't have a place for yet because the basement won't be started or finished til next year sometime.  Not having a place for everything and everything in its place is actually driving me crazy!  So - slowly but surely I'm going to start working towards cleaning out and unpacking.  First room - for December -- is the office.  This is a very tiny 3rd bedroom that immediately became the office on moving day!  These are the before pictures -- hopefully by the end of the month I will have after pictures. 
The computer desk. I had this cleaned out once! I do have a pc that is still in a box in here. Not sure where I'm going to set it up or how yet, but it will get out of the box this month!
The corner with a bookcase that I literally stacked quilt books on and anything else I needed a place for. The garbage bag in front of the shredder is covering a stack of papers, etc. that need to be shredded. The boxes have the computer and binders in them. Also, have knitting needles, yarn, books, etc. in the plastic box.There's a shelf with a quilt hanger on the floor that I'm going to hang in the dining area of the kitchen.

My mother-in-law's treadle sewing machine, which I love, is in here because there is no other place for it. I'll work with it there. The dog kennel is there because ever since JR chewed up the woodwork in the old house after Bill died, I've had to put him in the kennel when I leave. Now it is no longer necessary, so I will take it out to the garage. The rocker is in here because I put up my Christmas tree where the rocker was in the living room!

I didn't take a picture of the closet, because I had started with it -- I've put shelves in there and my file cabinet, but the shelves are full and need to be cleaned out again too.

So - goal by the December 31, 2013:  make this room a pleasure to walk into and work in!

Until next time......Blessings.
