Death by Clutter!

I can’t take it anymore! My working space is too d-mned cluttered!

How can I get any work done when the place looks like this???

But now I’m caught in a Catch-22. I’ve got so much work to do that I shouldn’t take the time to clean up. But I’ve got so much cleaning up to do that I can’t concentrate.

This bugs the crap outta me!

I don’t know if everyone keeps a list of to-do’s, but here’s mine.

1. Fix old Compaq computer
2. Set up scanner on kids computer
3. Set up Epson printer on Compaq computer (unless Kelly wants the printer)
4. Replace light fixtures in girl’s room
5. Replace light fixture in girl’s bathroom
6. Start unpacking in the garage (that’s a 2+ week long ordeal)
7. Fix my loan with Wachovia
8. Complete the Geico insurance claim from Dylan & Will’s wreck
9. Replace all the blown out light bulbs
10. Clean up my office (dammit!)

Do you have a list? If so, what’s on it?

Well, at least I got a load of laundry going. That kind’a makes me feel better. (sigh) Oh well, I hope you’re having a better day than I am!



  1. I just got a shiny new car battery to go with the shiny new alternator that wouldn’t let me get Zach to his plane on time. And I got the prices for my textbooks. Yep, it’s a good day. I still have a car to drive and a brain to fill…

  2. Gah! Your desk is almost as bad as mine. I usually end up taking my laptop to the living room and working there when I can’t find the desk anymore. But… if you straighten the desk up first, you’ll be more productive in the long run. It won’t take you that long. Here’s my to-do list:

    1. Get started on my reading for my Spring semester classes.
    2. Finish edits on my section of our moot court paper.
    3. Fold clothes.
    4. Write up my last site visit for the kid I volunteer with for the guardian ad litem program.
    5. Make out a bar prep study schedule.

  3. You don’t want to see my list. LOL.

  4. I’ve been dying a slow clutter death for years. I think I have some sort of clutter-induced psychosis. I actually tense up when I drive into my driveway.

  5. Ummm I say burn it…no one will ever know…

    1. Join a nudist camp so I don’t have to do laundry anymore.

    2. Use paper products so I can throw the dishes away

    3. Become a lady of leisure (smirk)

    4. Drive my Mercedes more and leave the yugo in the garage

    5. Get a garage

    See now don’t you feel mo’ betta?

  6. Sam – I was afraid of what you were going to connect that shiny new battery to. But I was definitely imagining something shiny and metalic. (grin)

    Suzie – I just love the word “moot”. Plus, you’ve got “make out” on your list for me. Woohoo!

    Jen – when you start tensing up, do what I do. Take a little red pill. It REALLY helps! Then, I look up the latest JY Biscuit HNT photo. But that’s just me.

    Cheryl – Of course I want to see your list. Uh, assuming, “list” is not a euphemism for a nasty skin infection.

    Pam – I feel mo’ betta just cuz you read my blog! But it could also be because of that little red pill I took a while ago.
