Muddle Mayhem

Decluttering my home – and life – one piece of junk at a time…

Message sent to my Hubby just 5 minutes ago…

on December 19, 2011

Earlier today he told me a receipt he needed was throughout the pile we put on the microwave… these are important Christmas receipts I want to keep on hand.

I walked in the kitchen a few minutes ago and then sent my hubby the following message:

That couldn’t have been you who made such a mess on top of the microwave because you would know how devastated and upset I would be to see that… so I can only assume that some leprekaun or maybe elves came rading through the papers there… Right?
They say it takes a willing person 21 days to change a habit. If someone were to tell me it takes an unwilling family member 78 days to accept the new habits and start changing, then I think I would have more patience through this transition. I could just start my countdown and stay tight-lipped til then. But I simply don’t see any improvement from anyone and it’s so very devastating.
I simply don’t know what to do to convince these people to make an effort.

    The less junk around, the less stuff people have to mess up. That’s the harsh reality. And if those receipts were in the folder I bought specifically bought for this purpose, then I’m sure I wouldn’t have been faced with the mess. I’m learning – where I once thought it was everyone else’s fault, I’m slowly starting to see that if I provide the tools, they will learn to use them.
