Oh boy. I’m so over my head in details right now. And the weekend is beckoning me to just ignore them all. Holidays can be evil like that. I’m so glad I started using at least one of my new organization tools – the Thinking Rock thing. It at least helps me keep 95% of my to-do lists in one place on my computer and NOT online (for the inevitable power outages), or most likely, all over completely random pieces of paper strewn around my life. And this place is a mess. I managed to tidy up the kitchen last night so I could freaking breathe, but this office needs help. A weekend of lock-myself-in-with-junk-food-and-caffeine-only-allowed-to-leave-for-bathroom-emergencies cleaning/sorting/pitching/filing. I mean, it’s not as bad as it could be, and it’s not even as bad as it’s been. It’s just not right. I’ve got this wonderful little ‘tickler’ file thing I bought to be the compliment to my computer to-do list…and I can’t use it yet becuase I haven’t filtered down what I affectionately call the ‘pile to the right’ and the ‘pile to the left’. These have now spawned the ‘box of stuff on the floor (the lid’s closed so there’s nothing there, right) and the ‘pile on the floor to my right’, the ‘pile on the floor behind me’ and the ‘pile in the chair’. Ugh. Hopefully I can spend some time on at least part of it this weekend. Maybe Sunday. Today my focus is the stack right in front of me. 3+ hours to go.
