dominoes fall

Now that we are into week two of computerlessness, my games craving is subsiding, and the house is cleaner than it has ever been. There may even have been one or two drawers cleaned out.

My actual work continues to pile up, which is becoming a trifle worrisome, but not enough for me to attempt to do any research and writing on this tablet. Instead, I am tackling the Great Office Clean Out Project.

In light of the fact that I did not receive a shredder for Christmas, I instead hand-shredded the giant bag of documents that has been mouldering in the office for the past half year, a task that was nowhere near as onerous as I feared. Today, the giant sorting/shuffling begins.

I am far more excited about this than I should be, and should probably take this as an indicator that I need to get out more, but the prospect of a streamlined, uncluttered office with a filing system that is accessible, makes sense and actually works is pretty heady to an OCD minimalist like myself. Even more exciting to me is the fact that this undertaking will improve not only the office itself, but also a bedroom closet, the exercise room and my urban assault vehicle. The domino effect of this project is huge. I don't know why I didn't figure this out years ago.
