Dining Room Lost In Translation
Sometimes things get out of control. Homes especially. Even more so when you bring a home business into the mix together with an illness in the family, whether it be animal or human. With this particular client, he had a thriving home business and a love for animals. When one of those animals became ill, all sense of order and organization in the home was lost as the focus was on the health care of the family pet as opposed to the state and organization of their home and business. Sometimes priorities just change. When we received the call from this client, his beloved pet had unfortunately passed away after several months of serious illness, and he was now ready to tackle the rather large project of getting his home and business back in order. Here is a photo of his dining room before we began our decluttering and organizing:
There is a table underneath all that stuff and we were determined to get at it so that our client’s life could return to normal. After many bags for donation, items for disposal and paper and household items relocated we found the dining room table!
Sometimes we just have to accept that life throws us some curves along the way and when things get out of control, help is only a phone call away. Give yourself permission to ask for help to restore order when there is none. Things will always fall back into place, especially with a little assistance along the way!
