Ever have a task that isn’t that big, but it is big enough you just keep putting it off?
That was our camping gear! It has been sitting, waiting to be repacked and put back on the shelves in storage…for next year.
For several reasons…not the least being I had really hoped we would go camping again this season…it has not been put away.
To be fair, to put it away meant moving a bunch of stuff and unloading the shelf it goes on and reloading it again. In front of the shelves was a disaster and frankly I just didn’t WANT to do it!
So, instead I have been bumping into it every time I go to my bedroom. And it annoys me each and every single time. Instead I have been picking my way carefully to the freezer, through all the camping supplies piled in front of it. Instead Keilan’s train table has become the Tupperware and lunch kit dumping grounds, because reaching the shelves to put things away properly is a treacherous task!
Finally tonight I’d had enough. I cleaned it all up. It took an entire hour. But I did it.
And honestly I wished I’d done it in September! One hour to clean up that eye sore and tripping hazard….seriously I REALLY should have done it 2 months ago!
