digging out

Snow day at home with YBW and Things C and G.
YBW and Thing G are playing games on their computers. Thing C watching Clone High on his laptop. I’m finally reorganizing my “office space” from the chaos when my dad died. (Yeah, it’s been ten months but who’s counting?)
Sunday I redistributed all the books between the old and new bookshelf.

Today I’m tackling the desk tables. They’re a hot, hot mess. I honestly haven’t had it in me to do anything but stack more stuff on the piles of stuff. All the papers needed in dealing with my dad’s estate were in a special basket. Anything else just got crammed on one of the tables.

I have put it off and put it off. I’ve stood here in tears ready to just light a match. I’ve stood here braced and ready only to take one look, shrug, and walk away.
Today is the day.
The day I dig out of the hole I’ve been in.
Wish me bon courage.

    My whole house is like this. Closets, our whole office (furniture all stuffed in there. No papers because it’s ceased functioning as an office), garage etc. One day……

  2. Ah! A Harry Potter fan, I see.

    When I tackled my mess recently I came across a folder that I had labelled “to do on return”. I thought that is must have been a folder that I made when I went away for a few weeks six months before. No, it was one I had made three and a half years before (just before my life unfolded). It was amazing the treasures, important lost stuff and also useless stuff I found within that folder.

    • Oh, Elizabeth, I absolutely adore Harry Potter!
      I’m finding similar things, some are important, some are simply garbage, some going into envelopes to send to the folks that need them now.
      I didn’t finish, but the weekend is coming…

Visit the darkest crevices of my mind, dare to tread where many fear to go. You may find something interesting or you may find a mirror to your soul.
