Just in case any of you are wondering how I am doing on my non-resolution resolutions to get organized at home and at work....well, there's been mixed results. I have yet to clean out the utility closet or the front coat closet, however I have put away the Christmas decorations. Except the wreath which is still perched prettily over the fireplace. Oh, and the candle my mom got me for my birthday nearly started the damn thing on fire, but that's another story.
Work is perhaps a bit better. I have remembered some days to put my mileage on my daily planner. I think I've done that twice. I have also been putting papers in files, but one result of that was I told my boss I never got the month-end report when in fact I had got it but filed it away. Out of sight, out of mind.
I did manage, however, to clean out and organize the junk drawer in the kitchen. You know this drawer; the one that ends up with all the junk mail, scissors, calculators, phone book, twist ties, pencil sharpener, toothpicks, birthday candles, tacks, tape etc. Yes, well....last night Chris had to dig through it looking for a ruler - which wasn't there.
Hm....I'm thinking that it takes more than just a one-time effort to get organized. It's that whole staying organized thing that really throws a wrench in!
