Might Be Quicker Just to Blow it Up

blow it upI must confess something. I didn’t mean for it to get so bad. I really didn’t. But it did. But I do have an excuse, reason.

My home office has seen better days. Just none in the past 3 years.

I’m not a neat nick. I’m not even going to try to lie. I have to many friends and family that would out me as a liar. I’m not a filthy pig either, I’m just not the “everything has a perfect home” kind of person. My labels at home don’t all face the same way. My desk might be cluttered but I know where everything is and that is all that matters. (Oddly though, my computer folders are extremely organized – Go figure)

One of the bloggers I follow, Candy over at Finding Order in Chaos, is all about helping you organize yourself. I’m a lost cause but I still like to dream and hey, she is extremely interesting. Check her out.

So I got to thinking how disappointed in me she would be if she ever saw my home office. Before I show the “wow” picture and you all run screaming, let me explain. I have not used this room in over 3 years. Not that it was perfect before, but it wasn’t this bad. It now has become a dump and run. Ok, let me just rip off the band-aid and show you the damage….

What a mess
This is nothing....


Office mess
What the Heck Happened?!

If you stuck through the horror of those two pictures it is good to know you didn’t pass out…..Except maybe Candy…..

Yep, when I left HD I just dropped my stuff off on a Friday and took over the BR on a Monday… Looks like it is all right where I left it….

My HD stuff... 3 years of dust....I got the PomPom on my last day...Long story...

There is more, but even I can’t bring myself to show the rest of the horror….



The good news is I’ve decided to tackle the project. My problem is, I work everyday.  So it’s not like I have a day I can dedicate to it. So, my mission is to deal with at least 5 items per day.  At my calculation that should have it cleaned up my October 3rd, 2015.

Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day (so I’m told – I wasn’t there).

When I was a kid and had to clean my room, my tactic was to toss everything I could find on my bed. This way the floor looked awesome and I felt like I accomplished something. I still use that theory to this day. (only I will try to not toss it all back on the floor when I get tired of cleaning).

Want to see my progress?

Is that carpet I see???

Impressive huh? Someone give Candy the smelling salt so she can be impressed too!

Well, I’m trying. And that is more than I was doing a year ago. So keep your fingers crossed (as we learned in a previous post I can’t)

I might just get this mess cleaned up prior to October 2015. I’m thinking definitely before the world ending in December 2012. After all, I wouldn’t want to leave a mess for my going away party.

By the way, don’t even call me a hoarder. I will not have a panic dealing with this junk. My panic attack will only come BECAUSE I have to deal with this junk.  



~~~till we laugh again~~~
