How I cheat at organizing

      Comments Off on How I cheat at organizing

Well, it’s a coincidence that organization should be the theme today, because Thursdays are the day that the house keeper comes over! Now, my housekeeper isn’t just anyone, she’s one of the most important people in my life. Weird huh? I even have a post about her that I’m working on. Here’s an except to explain a little about her…

Elsa Trinidad has been my family’s house keeper since I was a child. She’s seen me go through grade school all the way through college. She’s met every boyfriend and she’s seen me get married! (Well, she couldn’t technically see me get married in Maui because she didn’t want to fly over water. But you get what I’m saying, right?) Little Elsa has been there — this quite, calm, sweet presence for almost as long as I can remember.

Since Elsa’s been helping me out at my apartment my whole life has seemed better organized. And when she’s not here… everything falls to shit. I swear, she hasn’t been here since I left for Fiji and this place was AWFUL. But now it’s clean, so I don’t really have anything to organize house-wise.

Instead, I’ll just share a picture of what my apartment’s living room looks like NOW… post-Elsa…

Hey look it's my living room AND office! And it's clean!
