Christmas Vacation is over, and I never even got to watch Christmas Vacation.
I also never got to Inbox Zero (or even close). Not for work email, and not for my personal email either.
I didn’t make the meal plan for the month, or the week, or even for tonight.
My desk is clean, though. It started out looking like this:
Yes, that’s my Corner Office right there. The Christmas tree is right behind me. There’s nowhere to go but up. Yesterday I took every single piece of paper off that desk–the clipboard, the notebook, the planner, and that entire organizing thingamabob, and decided whether that paper deserved desk space.
3 baskets of papers went out to the recycling bin. About 2 hours into the project, I was down to the last few items. There’s the basket I was using for recycling, on the right.
Cleaning my desk turned out to be a great way to brainstorm; I’d stop and write down some ideas for things I want to do/write/set up/organize. I set a few goals for my recipe blog.
And tomorrow is back to routine. Back to school for TheKid, though he has an endocrinology appointment in the afternoon, so he’ll only be there for half the day. Back to work for Hubs and me (for the morning).
I’m rested (mostly). My desk is clean, even if my inbox isn’t. I’m ready.

Go, Barb! You beat me. I started taking the office apart last week, and the domino effect began! I’m making lots of progress, though, and I know just what you mean about new ideas popping up. Happy New Year!
It’s amazing how creative I can be when working on something like that. It’s almost like it reboots something in the brain!
