What is up with me?

It has been since Easter that I have actually posted anything on here. Wow! I cannot say that I've been that busy, but I guess I have. Mostly, Easter weekend was long, and left me a few steps behind in everything at work... and at home. So, I feel like we've been trying to play catch up everywhere we go.

I visited the flylady's site today. She posed the question... Are you livin in CHAOS? -- Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome? I am truly a SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive).

You don't believe me? Let me give you a list of the items now on my DESK -- mind you, this is a DESK, you know...

A piece of furniture typically having a flat or sloping top for writing and often drawers or compartments.

Should I stress the part that says "FOR WRITING"?

1. old popcorn box filled with video tapes (not mine)
2. magazines
3. wrapping ribbon
4. curling ribbon
5. spray bottle of water
6. backpack of Em's filled with fake subway food
7. a bottle of water (I'm thinking it's been there a WHILE)
8. men's cologne
9. this week's mail
10. a tshirt (yes, you heard it right)
11. two cookbooks
12. children's books (I think there are three of them)
13. audio adrenaline cds
14. 2 lamps
15. a paper airplane
16. a necklace
17. 3 baskets full of papers
18. empty file folders
19. jump drive
20. pda
21. stapler
22. pencil sharpener
23. computer
24. quantum leap
25. markers
26. lint roller

okay, I will stop there... but I promise that is NOT the entire list of things.

guess what I'm doing today?

I had heard about FlyLady years ago, but only recently became a "Fly Baby". I'm still amazed that something so simple as an email reminder helps me so much.

FlyLady Rocks!!!!

I understand the busy thing. That is why I haven't posted in over a month. Good luck with the desk.

We missed you! I refuse to list what's on my desk. Nice list, though.
