This past week I had the guest closet done. Mainly for storage for some of my less used kitchen appliances ... while still offering space for visitors.
Everything is looking more organized around here. In fact, I can't wait to get to the Portland condo and give it more of my personality. My favorite widowhood blogger,The Misadventures of Widowhood, at:
is also into getting her closets (and her home) orderly and more efficient. She has the advantage of some cold and snowy weather keeping her indoors, but I'm wondering now if this nesting is really about something else.
Are we trying to feel like we have control over some small part of our new lives? Because we have no control over our grief? In my case, I do think this is the case. Starting a project, no matter how small, and then finishing it gives me some real satisfaction these days. Most things are not that big of a deal but I feel a bit happier once they are done.
Yep. I think I have control issues.
