Operation Organization Time!!

Well...Some things are Totally out of your control sometimes!

Operation Organization was supposed to start today for me, BUT
I got to work on Thursday for my normal 4pm-midnight shift, and much to my surprise

WE HAD ANOTHER TORNADO

Once again, my 8 hour shift turned into a 16 hour shift. I got home around 8:45am to a bright eyed and bushy tailed 13 month old who was awake and raring to go!!

My really.Did I say REALLY helpful little brother
(who is 30 and single, by the way...ladies....)
stayed overnight to care for Hootie since both Chief and I were called to DUTY,
then stayed this morning and let me SLEEP!!!

***I mentioned before, we both work for the city. He in Public Works and I in Emergency Management. ErrrOrr...."Office of Preparedness" which ever you want to call it today. Chief's job is physical clean up of demolished parts of the city. My job entails opening a huge room in our office so all city/county division heads including our NEW Interim Mayor, Red Cross, Public Works, etc...can come and communicate resources and decisions at one time, one common area,while another section of our office serves as a resource to police, fire, and citizens that call in with concerns.***

SO, NEEDLESS TO SAY....I CAME HOME AND SLEPT.
NO START TO OPERATION ORGANIZATION IN MY HOUSE!
BUT I'LL BE READY, ALBEIT BEHIND, ON MONDAY.

If you started today, let me know how it went! Read the post from Melinda below:

Are you ready for the fight?

(If you don't know what this is read this.)

If you'd still like to sign up or know of someone who would, it is not too late.
Anyone can sign up at anytime. The sooner you enlist, the more areas of your home to conquer!
I am not so much your Commander-in-Chief, as your fellow soldier.
I struggle with organization too and have enlisted some reinforcements (very organized friends of mine) to help provide us with tips and keep our morale up!

We can do that for each other, too!


Here's what you need to do for tomorrow:(I'm starting Monday)

1.) Choose your first organization project/goal. Don't forget to take a "Before" photo, so you can send me your Before and After photos.


2.) Post about it on your blog tomorrow (Monday)...(please either copy my button code or leave a link to my Operation Organization post in your Friday post, so others can learn about it and join in.)


3.) Come here on Friday ... I will have some "battle plans" (tips) to help get us started.

4.) Leave your link on my blog Friday via Mister Linky.
(Be sure to link to your Organization post, not just your blog.)

That's it!I'm very excited to get started! I hope you are, too.

Come back tomorrow (Oops, Monday for Me)and we'll hit the battlefield!

So sorry about the long hrs. Tornadoes are so scary. About a month ago we were watching rotating clouds above us. Nothing happened but it was still so, not fun. Good luck with Operation Organization. I started in my bedroom.
