A few weeks ago I decided to organize my office. This is where I stalled. I definitely need to do something about the bookshelves. I also really need to get more writing done. I'm working on two projects at once now, with another on the way, so...maybe I should just pile all the books (and other things) in a box. At least then I wouldn't have to look at it while I work. It's very distracting. Except...there are research books in the mix, quite a few of them (you can't see them all here. There are more shelves to the left). I need those for writing and if I put them in a box...well, that's just not going to happen, is it?
And there you have it. My office is always my downfall when it comes to cleaning. I'm not a horrendously neat person, but I usually manage to get to the main cleaning projects regularly. I can do dishes all day and never mind at all. Beds? No problem. Laundry. I rather like doing laundry. Dusting and vacuuming, not so much, but it gets done, albeit not as often as it should. The office, however, is always a different story. It requires lots of thought, lots of sorting and a will of iron to recycle, donate or toss the things necessary to really clean things up. I try to do it over a period of days, but when something pressing comes up, there goes the plan and I end up only halfway through. By the time I get back to it, I have to start all over again.
I'm not going to ask if you're neater than I am. Most of you must be. But surely everyone has at least one part of cleaning that they like less than others. What's yours?
Have a great day!
