As I told you last week, I’m starting an exclusive club for disorganized women, but not just anyone can join. Each person will have to pass an admissions exam. However, if you subscribe to my blogs, you can be one of my charter members as long as you can answer yes to at least ten of the scenarios in the exam.
I’m in heaven as I think about starting this exclusive, club (no BOs allowed) and I’m calling it CLUB ORGANIZED. Really, I’m just changing the name of my website from www.makeitfunanditwillgetdone.com to www.cluborganized.com but in the excitement of being able to get this perfect name for my website, I started fantasizing about having a real club for us!)
Of course we won’t have meetings (we’re all too busy) and there won’t be dues or uniforms or secret handshakes, but we’ll all know we belong. And we just might start having an annual convention here in Woodland, Washington. We’ll be a sisterhood of SLOBS (remember SLOB stands for Spontaneous, Lighthearted, Optimistic and Beloved) and we’ll be bound together by our love for our families and our desire to have clean, cozy, peaceful homes.
Here’s the test I promised you. Incidentally, if you can honestly answer yes to every one of these SHE scenarios, you’ll eligible for admission into the highly coveted DE status (Deficiency Expert) of the club and you’ll receive all the goodies that go along with it and as soon as I figure out what they’ll be.
