Summer Vacation, Maybe

(Acknowledgments to another Lisa for this post, which sent me to the ultimate workspace-voyeur posting at Jezebel’s blog.)

Starting a new work-week with nothing concrete in mind since finishing the first draft. Today I was going to make a list…And how come I just wrote “was going to” instead of “am going to”? Talk about a summer-vacation mindset. Not yet 3:00 p.m., and I’m acting like the time for industrious activity has passed me by for the day.

I think I can manage to write a list after I go to dreaded CostCo, which I’ve been putting off for awhile now.

(Actually, the list in my head is already too long, and I know what I’m going to start on tomorrow, but for the sake of today, because I’m supposed to be on a break, I’m pretending I’m at loose ends.)


The number one item on the to-do list will be de-chaos-ifying my apartment, starting with my office as seen here. How many bits of paper do I need, and why aren’t I using the notebook I bought just for jotting random thoughts as they enter my head, so that they’re all in one spot, so that I head off paper chaos at the pass?

Looking forward to a late spring cleaning. Clear out my home, clear out my brain, that’s what I say.

How’s your workspace on these fine summer days?
