I was so proud of myself last spring, when I finally put drawer dividers into my dresser drawers! Suddenly, my socks had their own space, my jammies could be neatly tucked away, and my undies....well, let's just say they'd never had it so good.
I could tell that the panties enjoyed having a place all their own. Granted, it was still right smack dab next to those socks, but the saying, "Good fences make good neighbors," certainly seemed to be proven true. I noticed right away that there was a whole lot less arguing and fighting for territory in there.
But recently, I've seen a discouraging pattern. It's happened as I've gotten hurried and busy. I've been ignoring those dividers I put in, and now everyone inside the drawer neighborhood has started sleeping around. Sometimes the panties will have a slumber party over with the the crew socks, and the dress socks just mingle wherever they want to, like a bunch of swingers. The bras tend to land anywhere they feel like, and it's been disappointing to see those girls hook up for one night stands like that. You'd think they'd have higher standards.
Today's Small Thing is to straighten up your personal items.
The "intimate apparel," if you will. Maybe your things are utilitarian in style and don't seem to care much about aesthetics, but deep inside, those cotton, hard working girls like having a soft place to land. They appreciate a bit of attention just as much as the glamorous lacy ladies, who don't get out much but who think they deserve a drawer of their very own. Those gals are a bunch of divas, but that's ok. When we need them, they willingly do their jobs in style on those special occasions.
This Small Thing shouldn't take more than a few minutes. But opening a drawer and finding your unmentionables resting in the comfort of their own neat space will give you a warm glow. You know they deserve better than what you've been giving them, and today is they day they will get their dues.
