Do you ever feel stuck when you think about organizing?
That point where you walk into the guest room (garage, closet, kitchen….) ready to tackle it and organize the heck out of it, but as soon as you open the door and peer in -you freeze.

One reply I got from the “My husband thinks he’s lazy” love letter got me to go deeper into the housework, energy and love dynamic. (I love it when these conversations create even deeper ones!)
Here’s what “A” wrote in reply to my Love Letter:
“No, I think my husband's just lazy. He works full-time, but so do I. Once he gets home, he wants to sit on the couch and watch TV...and wants me to sit with him!
