I need a professional organizer too! I am doing my best but my best isnt good enough right now-it seems like everywhere I look there is crap-on the microwave, on the counter, on the floor, in a big bowl on the counter, etc etc.

How do you find a professional organizeR?

I'm glad your little one is okay. We knew a family whose child did die because she bit a balloon and it blocked her airway while she was asleep. That was when I was a teenager, but I'm still paranoid about that happening!

I'm also glad to see that someone else struggles with the cat issue. We also have a child who may be better served by finding new homes for the cats. Like yours, one is special needs, and we feel it would be next to impossible to find a good home for her. We've debated this issue (with all of the uninvited opinions of family being that we should get rid of them), but making that decision is horribly painful.

Martha- I'm so glad to hear you're motivated to get your house in order. I had a very similar thing happen. I've always been a little careless when it comes to housecleaning. Sometimes if there's a mess I don't really "see" it because I've got my mind thinking. So when my son was about 9 mos. (I think, he might've been younger) he started to choke on a piece of plastic wrap that had come off a snack size package of cheese crackers. He was on the floor on his tummy and I thought he was completely safe but somehow there was that tiny piece of trash and it caused such a scare! He didn't turn red or anything but it scared me so much I immediately started to clean my house too. I'm much better at cleaning regularly and keeping my house clean. I sweep my kitchen/dinning floor at least once a day and I vacuum the area rugs and sofas regularly. With little ones you really learn to be mindful for their safety. I hope you can continue to make progress.

I'm so glad your babe is OK.

I'd like to make a suggestion (maybe someone already has).

If you hire a house cleaner/organizer and you get decluttered, keeping on top of the cat hair and dust mites will be easier. Do you have a good vacuum? Having a well designed vacuum will help you out tremendously. It makes cleaning easier. Of course, if you don't have carpeting (even better) then this is not necessary. I have a good vacuum and it makes all the difference in my attitude towards cleaning. It helps with my seasonal allergies too.

Praise God, he is okay.

I am so glad you can turn this around and make something positive for your family with it.

Blessings!
