Welcome! and stuff

Welcome to my blog! I am welcoming myself as much as you - I have been ruminating about blogging for YEARS now and finally pushed the button!

Let me introduce myself - I am a 42 year old working mother of two boys. Like most working mothers, my life is a whirlwind of "stuff" - kid stuff, work stuff, and home stuff - just a lot of STUFF. I'm always looking for a way to manage it ALL! And as difficult as it is to manage sometimes, there is a lot of joy in the process. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that I have put a little corner of my universe in order. So the title of the blog - NeatnessCounts - is inspired by my love (passion, really) for all things organized and systematized, as well as my need to get and keep my life organized and under control.

Another reason for my decision to blog - I know a lot of STUFF. I have far more organizing knowledge than it is practical for me to ever use. And finally, I am bona fide ADDICTED to the internet. My goal is to read it ALL! and that's where a lot of my knowledge comes from. I subscribe to various blogs and often I will see an idea, and tweak it so it works better for me or someone else. Through this blog I hope to share some of what I know with others.

Welcome to blogging, Pat. I can totally relate to your post, First, I'm 42 and I'm addicted to the internet too. I love organizing stuff although I could do more of it if I wasn't on the internet so much learning and reading. My life is hectic with 4 kids and working from home.

Ha Ha! Can't wait to hear more from you.
