That makes it difficult to find the things that are supposed to be on my desk, like bills and tape...especially the stapler. I actually got so tired of looking for the stapler that I bought a new one and hid it. That exact same day I found the other stapler under the couch in the family room. Isn't that how it always goes?

I try so hard to stay on top of things, but most of the time it just doesn't happen. So on my down day yesterday I sorted the stuff on my desk for hours and took care of a bunch of crap that I have been putting off. I boxed up the phones that didn't work right out of the box so that I could return them to AT&T. I sifted through receipts until I found the ones I needed to send in on my flexible spending account. I even wrote the tuition check for Curly's preschool three days early!
I was feeling pretty good about my accomplishments until I started wandering around and realized that there were piles of stuff everywhere that needed my attention, most notably in the laundry area. How do you do it? How do you keep up on everything? Sometimes it all seems pretty overwhelming.
