You know I keep it real here on It’s Just Life. It’s part of my charm, right? Well today is all about keeping it real. And honestly – it’s a little embarrassing.
We were sitting on the couch the other day and there was a crashing sound. Maksim alerted and I followed him to where he had gone.
The scene of the crime? My side of the closet where the entire shelf that runs the length of the closet and holds my clothes had fallen down.
So our Sunday day of rest became a frustrating day of work. Much needed closet cleaning, yes, but frustrating to discover that we had been living on borrowed time as the shelf was not anchored into studs but just into flimsy drywall.
I won’t go on and on about this whole project because you can imagine it yourself. Magnify that by 100 and you are probably spot on.
I sorted and triaged.
I discarded and folded.
I have a very healthy donation for several local charities which is a good thing. And I don’t donate junk so it’s all good stuff that will be donated for others to pick through.
But we learned a few lessons.
Less is better.
Do the job right the first time. (Definitely not a slam on Chris as it was not done correctly when it was installed before we bought the house.)
I am not posting pictures because it was too traumatic to even take pictures of but hopefully I am on a new path of keeping things winnowed down and more manageable.
I have been blessed with so much. I know that. And I am not always a great steward of what I have been blessed with so this closet purging was kind of an eye opener for me.
I recently reorganized and sorted my craft closet so this was another step in getting my life more organized. I just hadn’t planned on doing it quite the way we had to do it.
My question for you today is what have you been putting off that might come crashing down on you? Hopefully it isn’t a closet fail like I had.
It’s a super busy week for me this week but I will be coming back at you with more blog posts that I know you need to read. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave me a comment for our Comments for a Cause — The Augustine Literacy Project.
