My messy little secret

Good morning sunshine

Yes this is my side of the bed.  I wake up to this every morning.  It's my dirty little secret.  And if you couldn't tell by the picture, it gets worse.

I leave just enough space to walk to and from the bed

Because I step on this!  The treadmill is to the right of the picture and so a lot of the time my pile will fall to the floor from the vibration of Jeff running.  Jeff just shakes his head.  He thinks it's funny that I am so busy making sure the rest of the house is clean and organized, yet I let this happen over and over again.  Oh and don't mind that the bed is obviously not made, my chihuahua digs up the covers and makes a huge cocoon in the middle.  So most days my bed is not made, though it does start out made in the morning! 

I used to just have things that inspired me but there's no inspiration now!

Waking up to this is not what I want to do everyday, so I have no idea why I keep letting it happen over and over.  Well, if I am honest with myself then I could just admit that it is laziness.  I like to spend time in my bed before I go to sleep, looking at magazines or browsing the web.  So I just dump whatever it is I am doing on the nightstand or on the floor.  Day after day after day.  That is until I really get sick of looking at it and I clean it up.  Yah- and it only takes about 10 minutes to get it back to clean and organized. 

Maybe that is part of the problem.  Because I know it is only gonna take me about 10 minutes to clean it up, I just procrastinate.  For me it's just one of those things.  It really doesn't bother me for a while and I know that in just a few minutes I can clean it up.  So I let myself have this messiness.  It's my strange indulgence.  It doesn't really bother me for the most part.  Could be worse right? I could feel like this about the public areas of my home. 

Do any of you have a dirty little secret?  One area that is not always clean and organized that you are honestly ok with?  Something that secretly makes you feel naughty about...haha!  Come on and share with  me!

Right after I posted this I did take the time to clean it up...................

Yes- I finally cleaned it up!
Even Walter the cat seems to be smiling!
What's this?
Why it's the floor by my bed!!

Update- it's still clean after 3 days!!

what is so funny to me, is that my mom is the exact same way. the rest of the house is spotless, but her side of the bed is the exact same way!!!

Oh yes, the messy little secret... I know it well. Only mine's not so secret anymore now that I'm blogging about it. Very liberating and motivating, actually. And it's not so little... it is my whole house. But getting better. You did a great job. Keep it up! :)

Hmm...I have on of those. Perhaps I should just get rid of my nightstand and stick a trash can there. Done and done.

LOVe the cat, btw.
