The Room of Doom

I remember when the PC game, Doom, first came out. It was one of the original first person games and I became addicted to it. Working at Ford at the time, a group of us talked about strategies to defeat the evil monsters and conquer the boss. We even began created our own games, creating our workplace in the game....you know, engineering geeks.

"The room of doom," is what "Pat" nicknamed her utility room in her basement. An area where she did laundry, stored pantry items, summer supplies, keepsake items and boxes & bags of stuff she didn't quite find a spot for in her home.

We only had 1 hour before I had to leave and she doubted if we could make any difference in this area. Ooh, a challenge.

We started making a pile of stuff to be placed upstairs in her kitchen and bedrooms. Pantry items were placed in a pantry closet. Summer items were stored in the cabinets that originally were empty. A bag of items was collected for donation. Finally, we had a bag of stuff to be trashed.

Pat was amazed at how great the room looked and felt in just 1 hour.
"It's no longer the room of doom. I can work in here and smile now."

I challenge you to pick a room and focus on getting it organized.

You can do it. You will feel better.

What game (board, PC or game system) do you love to play?
