Putting Things In Order

That's what I've been doing lately--putting things in order--or at least trying to. Or rather, just getting things done that I've been meaning to do for months, some things for years. Like cleaning out the storage closet (which is in our garage). When we moved here we just shoved a bunch of stuff in there to get it out of the way until we got settled. It's mostly filled with tools, Christmas stuff, and some random things I'm not ready to part with. But once we were settled we never uncluttered the mess that was the storage closet until a few weeks ago. Now it's much neater and makes me feel relieved every time I need to go in there. Then there's all these other things I've been meaning to do for what seems like forever, and I have this irrational fear (maybe not so irrational?) that if I don't get them done before the baby comes, I will never get them done. So I've made a list of things I want to get in order, and now I feel better. On the page they don't seem as overwhelming or even necessary to get to at all. Sometimes you just have to get your ducks in a row (or great planters like the ones above) to get some perspective on things.
