It's been awhile since we attacked the Danger Zones around here.
They're the areas that we swoop past and drop our payloads as we go. There are explosions of papers, bills, keys, cell phones, purses, gum wrappers and receipts at these hot spots. Not to mention pens, wallets, overdue DVD's, tickets, church bulletins and school notices.
Our main Danger Zone is a corner of the kitchen counter. We walk in, dump our stuff and usually head to the refrigerator for a snack. It's far too much trouble to walk the additional few feet to the back hall, the "official" parking place of personal property.
My husband is the vigilante of the Danger Zones. Without him reminding us to move our junk, we might be buried in the collateral damage. Thank God we have someone around to help save us from ourselves.
Today's Small Thing is to tackle a Danger Zone. Where do you drop your bombs of junk mail and keys? Take a few minutes and straighten it up. It's amazing how good it feels not be be greeted with a disaster when you walk in the door.
POINTS: 40 for doing some Shock and Awe clean-up in at least one Danger Zone
What's the oldest piece of paper or item you found in the rubble? Mine is an overdue DVD (2 weeks).
