Ah, life gets chaotic sometimes. And, I don't deal well with chaos. Ironically, though, my house is often chaotic - I tend to live in piles. Piles of clothes that need to be put away. Piles of the kids' school papers to be looked through and sorted. Piles of "need to be filed" papers. Piles of toys to be put away. You get the idea.
So, when life dealt us an unexpected medical issue last week, things got even crazier. All of a sudden, I had doctors to call, appointments to make, research to do, books to read, new food to buy, gluose testing monitors and various attachments to deal with. More piles. And these were important piles. Literally, life and death piles. So, they simply could not get lost in the chaos.
Enter Organization 101. I've spent time this week going through the piles and giving everything a home. Cleaning, purging, organizing. Controlling that which I could control. Which helped me to manage and deal with that which I could not control. And, for some reason, that is making me feel better.
