if I were me

Organizational Deficit

I really should have taken a picture of my desk a couple hours ago, when I reached critical despair about my organizational plan for my office. A trip to the store later, and I am making steadyish progress in repairing the Clutter That Is.

The subdivision's annual yard sale is this week. I am definitely participating. I hope to get rid of many things... Unfortunately, we live at the end of the circle, and when my neighbors don't participate (most years), we don't attract too many folks down this way. When they do, it's steadily busy, not unlike Halloween. But I figure I will spend the downtime gardening, if I get downtime, and call it a day if I don't.

Anyway, that's a few days off, and I still have an organizational deficit. Too many papers. Not enough cubbies. I'm working on it, though. Here's the During shot (a little late for Before):

Also, here's my cat nomming on the aloe plant, until I moved the comfy chair away from the window/plant stand:

...apropos of nothing, but I think it's funny. Or I did once I rescued my plant.
