That's a relief!

I thought I was just disorganised but no, I'm creative! My desk tells me so.

...January is now Get Organized Month, thanks also to the efforts of the National Association of Professional Organizers, whose 4,000 clutter-busting members will be poised, clipboards and trash bags at the ready, to minister to the 10,000 clutter victims the association estimates will be calling for its members’ services just after the new year. But contrarian voices can be heard in the wilderness. An anti-anticlutter movement is afoot, one that says yes to mess and urges you to embrace your disorder. Studies are piling up that show that messy desks are the vivid signatures of people with creative, limber minds...source

So I am vindicated!! Though cleaning my closet is on my agenda for this winter break. I have always let the kids room go. Thats what closed doors are for. It never gets really bad and generally gets cleaned up after exams or if friends are coming over. I have a couple of friends who just scream at their kids over messy rooms and all it does is make people upset and angry (and waste a lot of energy).

I have to laugh at the de-clutter google ad that has appeared on this post!!!

Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Romania.
Dorothy Parker, Not So Deep as a Well (1937)
