No matter what kind of organized phase I'm going through, I'm never completely meticulous. To begin with, I'm far more likely to have one tidy room and seven messes than the opposite, and eight tidy rooms is virtually unheard of around here.

Luckily, I've got a family with realistic expectations... I've surrounded myself with people who don't mind a little dust in the corners.

I like to think that they accept my chaos as a characteristic of my personality. That they prefer me just a little skewed, a little dusty. I certainly prefer me that way.

Life is all about priorities, right? If I wanted to live a life free of hairballs, I'd do it. But I think, for now, I'm prepared to live my life like a raspberry patch -- sprouting out in every direction and rooting where I may.
