It took me 9 months in this house to finally tear down the wallpaper and paint in my office. Another month and a half later and I just now got around to putting up curtains.
A definite improvement. The window is so big, and it looked so sad and bare before the curtains.
My desk, however, is a complete and utter mess. There are so many things on it that just don't belong there. Piles of junk mail I haven't thrown out and IRA and bank statements I haven't filed... a box of green tea, a candy cane (gives you an idea of how long it's been since I cleared off my desk), expired coupons, a box of emery boards, a bunch of beads, chains, and clasps that I wish I could say I just bought... but they've been sitting there for weeks, unopened.
I dread sitting down to pay bills lately, but it has more to do with facing this mess than parting with hard-earned money. I think I have a new goal.
But I'll save cleaning my desk for tomorrow. Now it's time to drive my husband out of the living room with "Ghost Whisperer" and "What Not to Wear" while I wait for the snow to come. ;-)
