I am a house is a life has become a series of piles. I am at the point where everything just ends up in a pile. Really, I am not exaggerating. Ok maybe a bit because really the only things that are ending in piles are my clothes. But still it's one pile after another.

This was my first pile. It started off very reasonably as just what came out of the dryer. All of it was nicely folded. I was going to put it all away but then I was thinking that since I am just going to pack it up I should just leave it out. That was a very bad idea.

Then I ran out of room and had to start stacking stuff on the telephone bench in the foyer. Just to add a bit of fun I was looking for my duffel. That's it there under everything and what do you know it had gotten stuffed in a closet somewhere and was still full of everything I took down to Alabama last month. Good to know that I wasn't loosing my mind thinking I had lost all that stuff. To bad it's about to become hidden until I find out I accidentally packed it in a big suitcase because it was in a pile of laundry. I have started to pack but just when I get ready to close it up I HAVE to have something that is on the bottom of the bag. Then I have to dig through it to find it. This has the added benefit of destroying my neatly packed clothes because when I discover I need the item it's always when I have .2 seconds to find it and be on my way.

I don't even know when this pile started. This is my kitchen table by the way. On Tuesday it was clear enough to eat supper on so I'm not really sure what happened. I know that's my umbrella but I'm not really clear on why it's mixed up with my laundry. The kicker about all this is that I don't even feel a bit overwhelmed. I know I should feel that way but I have this feeling that it will all work out perfectly. I think they call that denial. I should be flipping out and stressed and all other things right now but I am just plodding along getting things done bit by bit. However I am so close to just packing up all my clothes except for a warm up suit and just wearing that until Sunday morning. Lawd help me I may be going insane.
