I want to ask you something. And I don’t want your husband/partner to hear.
Generally speaking, you and I know that getting, and staying organised, is a reasonable amount of work. That it takes some discipline, effort and consistency. Sometimes, it takes more skill that we own. Also, sometimes, we get OVERWHELMED. That doing *everything* becomes insurmountable.
I want to know, in secret, what your partner thinks about you getting things organised. Is he (or she) supportive? Or critical? Does (s)he say “why do you need a book/organiser/TV show… just do it yourself?!” Is this very issue a source of conflict when the rest of your relationship rocks?
Do you have to secretly get someone in to help when (s)he’s away? Or does (s)he always chip in and lend a hand when you need it most?
For confidentiality, please email me your thoughts. I may blog your mail here but promise to remove any identifying details first. Or, if you’d prefer, comment away, right here!
