Utter disgrace!

Good Morning Folks!
I'd like to share a couple of things with you today... if I may?  Well I'm gonna anyway!
The first is really an 'observation'.  I have observed myself been particularly messy!  Not only that, but I seem to have absolutely NO intention of a.) cleaning up and b.) changing my ways!  What does that say about me?  I wonder...
To my disgrace this was the floor of my craft room this morning...
... to my UTTER disgrace this is still the floor of my craft room!
What can I say?  I'm messy! 
I have good intentions (not the sort paving the way to hell!), but then I get a little side-tracked (if tidiness is a pre-requisite of my entrance to the pearly gates, perhaps after all, I am headed for hotter climes!).  Remember my statement for this year... "A place for everything... and everything in its place", what happened to that, I wonder?  I'm not doing too well, am I?  And to think I had the vacuum out yesterday, and what did I do?  I made a conscious effort to close the door and ignore it!
The second... my side-tracking project...

Now back to that craft room...

Blah... blah... blah...
P.S.  it is several hours later and I still have not cleaned this room.  I have NO shame!  Once the mess has reached such epic proportions that it is coming out the door to meet you... the job just seems TOO daunting!
