Day 30 - Letter L - Looming Prospects

Number 2 son and his girlfriend are coming home this week-end. It's amazing how the prospect of seeing them is motivating me to crack the whip and dig into the piles of paper that I have accumulated here. Did I happen to mention that the office is also the guest room?

I have made it through several piles already and wonder why I don't just do this every week. Maybe I could make myself a new habit. At the end of each week, I could take the time needed to tidy up all the loose ends and close the door knowing that my work space will be ready for a fresh start come Monday. What a wonderful thought.

You probably know by know that I am a bit of a dreamer, but as Prospero says, "We are such stuff as dreams are made on." The Tempest (Act IV Sc 1) I like the dream. Maybe I can make it the "stuff" of my life.

Speaking of "stuff", this little break is over and it's back to work for me.

Day 29 - letter C - Continuing

Susan commented on my last entry. Yes, Susan, accountability is definitely good.

I have managed to keep my kitchen fairly spotless since my last update. Just doing the "clean as you go" routine has really helped. Mind you, when unexpected company dropped in yesterday. . . :(

Needless to say, this morning was a clean and vacuum morning!

It is a continuing process, this decluttering. I am someone who likes to create, finish, and then move on. But this process seems to always be there, demanding attention! I even heard about decluttering in a sermon recently! Convicted, I am once again determined to tackle my office.

Through the Word Guild Digest today, I found my way to a new blog by Laura Davis called The Writer's Keep. Todays entry was "How to Be Organized in Your Writing" She made some really good points, and although I will probably never be that organized, she did inspire me to try again. Thanks Laura.
