My Deepest Shame

I know what you're thinking. That Mrs.4444; perfect husband, perfect kids, perfect she really has any skeletons in her closet. Well, let me tell you, I do have a couple of things I've been hiding from you, and just to prove it to you, I am going to out myself today with one of my worst skeletons.

I, dear readers, am kind of a slob.

Now, I know you won't believe that when you see this beautiful bathroom, but you have to keep in mind that I spent three hours cleaning it (cupboards included); That's how bad it was. In fact, since I took this photo last week, it's returned to quite a cluttered state. What I really want to show you, though, is the closet that is entered from this bathroom.

Brace yourselves, folks; this is BAD.

Wait. I can't do it. This is really embarassing. Maybe it will help to tell you my reason for showing you today; I want to force some accountability on myself. This closet is bad, and I know that if I show it to you (with the commitment to clean it), I will follow though.

I've been living with this mess for a couple of months now. I have all kinds of reasons how it got this way, but no excuses. Now, I am declaring that I will have this thing clean one week from today.

I hearby challenge you to do the same with whatever nasty chore you have been avoiding. That's right; take a photo of your most embarassing mess at home, write about it on your blog (we can link to each other) and then post the "After" photos. Let's give ourselves a deadline, though. How about one week from the day you commit? Okay, here's my mess (gulp).

See that brown floral skirt? That's the offending item from this post.

Guess this means I'd better get my butt going...But WAIT! I have EXCITING news! Yes, I'm just full of exciting news lately. Let's just say that my news is FABULOUS! That's the only hint I'm giving you. I will share my news (hopefully) in the next couple of days. This is big, I tell you; FABULOUS! I can hardly wait!
