Chaos / Clutter

My home office is a mess.  Actually that is putting it mildly.  I need a weekend to clean it and get it organized.  I don’t have the weekend to do that.  I also have the added issue of struggling to have my feet down and moving around.  My desk is piled high with paperwork, books, school stuff, writing stuff, and so on.  I also need to get the card table cleared off. 

There isn’t a lot that stresses me out about my environment.  I’m definitely not a neat freak but right now my messy office a big time stressor.  I’d like nothing better than to get in there and spend a day just organizing and cleaning it out.  My physical limitations are frustrating me on this one level. 

I can find things to do while I sit in the recliner with my foot up.  I can nap, crochet, read, and even do most of my homework from the recliner.  However, I don’t like paying bills from the recliner (like to have two monitors to flip between spreadsheet and internet as I’m paying bills).  I also need the space so I can spread out to do some of my other things like writing and even homework – it is just more convenient. 

Instead of fussing about it, I guess I’ll have to figure out a way to work on it bit by bit.  Perhaps if I put in an hour or two at a time every day, I’ll be able to get it cleared up in the next week or so.  I won’t start the new semester with a clean work space but I might have it clean in short order.

  1. I feel your frustration. I feel like I am running in circles half of the time moving one pile to another pile. You will get it together, you always do. Perhaps not as quickly as you would like, but you will!

  2. Well I've found my desktop but created about eight piles. Some will go to other rooms (because that is where they belong) and others will need to be dealt with - like my fiiling pile. Progress - albeit slow - is being made. Now I just have to pay bills.
