I've spent the last couple of nights cleaning and organizing it. Mostly between the hours of 11 pm and 3 am. Why? Because I'm not as lame as you would think. I try to go out and be social, so when I would arrive home at 11 pm, it was time to get to work.
Talk about junk. I'm not sure where or when I accumulated so many things. When I moved to here to Fort Collins, I could fit my entire life in the back of my Blazer. Not so much anymore. Since living here I've accumulated a queen size bed, a couch, a recliner, roll top desk, TV stand, and several book shelves. As I decided to clean up all the clutter that was my room I also came to the realization that I have a lot of papers. Papers from church, old credit card statements, junk mail, etc. Why do I keep all of that stuff? I don't think I keep it because I like having it. I think it's more of a 'I'll just put it down here on the desk' type of thing, and then I just forget about it until I have a huge stack of junk. I wonder if anyone else does that, or if it's just me.
Now everything is cleaned up in my room. And by clean, I mean organized. It's a really good feeling. Now the trick is to keep it like that. Maybe I should dedicate Saturday mornings to make sure that everything stays in it's place. I guess we'll see how that works out.
