My husband has an amazing ability to keep things tidy. I like to think of myself as an organized person, but he blows me away when it comes to things like putting away a suitcase or a bag of whatever. It seriously impresses me. When we come home from shopping, a trip, wherever, bags are unpacked and put away almost immediately.

I have a terrible habit of leaving my suitcase always half packed, grabbing things out as I need them, but never fully emptying it. Maybe it’s a holdover from the days when I traveled constantly. It never benefited you to fully unpack, as you could be out the door again with less than a days notice.

When we came home from Christmas this year, bags were unpacked from the car to the living room, then all of Ben’s things were sorted and put away the next day. Mine? Not so much. I’ve tried to pick up some of his good habits, and go through my bags in a reasonable amount of time, but some stuff resides in bags for weeks. Maybe months. Ok, ok, I may have a bag from christmas last year hiding away somewhere. That’s me, the bag lady. Not quite what comes to mind when you hear that phrase, but applicable all the same. Just ask my husband.

The thing is, I have a system. I know where to find what I’m looking for with my “bag” method. Not saying it’s the best system, by any means, but it works. I’m generally able to find things when I need them, so this terrible system of mine works. There’s not much down side to it. Until that happens, I probably won’t change my ways, as much as I might want to.

Enthralling blog today, eh? Running out of steam these days. The ideas aren’t flowing as well. It could be the vice grip that this headache has over my noggin and the fogginess that accompanies it. I’ll blame it on that.
