I'm filing today. An hour in and it feels like I've accomplished nothing. I keep having to make new folders. It's been WAAAY too long since I last did this. Dynamite would be an improvement, as at least some of it would be burned up.
True. It must have been a shock grenade as there is a sad lack of burn destruction....
I'm shocked; shocked and appalled. These are obviously the same scalawags who attacked my car. Reprisals will be swift and painful.
They are sneaky and ubiquitous, the scoundrels.
My office NEEDS a stick of dynamite.
I have this image of a thoroughly charred Wile E. Coyote standing in the middle of you office.
That made me seriously LOL.
I am wondering if your problem might be a possible solution for my office. Let me know if you catch the vandal.
Brilliant! Thanks for the amusing mental image!!
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Take a paper bag and fill it, go to another room and sort it (yes, no, maybe). Do this is your spare time (maybe while watching TV ) and it will start to make a difference.
I got through a bunch of it: all the junk that had gotten dumped in here to get it out of the way, all the envelopes opened. Now there is filing, and then finally attacking substantial work. I really need the clean space to be able to begin, though.
Me too, on the clean space... I just spent four hours cleaning my house despite the fact I have three major projects that NEED to be done by tomorrow (and homework for Statistics) because I could NOT work in this pit. I could have gone to the campus to work, but I would have just sat there and felt guilty about what a mess the house was...
Problem is, now I need a nap to recover from the cleaning so I can work on the projects!
It's an ugly cycle, I tell you. ;-)
That's my method for cleaning, except I tend to fill a laundry basket full of things and then take it outside.
It'd work if family members didn't always put new stuff in the rooms.
...my bad. I evicted the Vandals from my office earlier this summer (along with 3 full bags of trash) and they seem to have found there way over to yours...
(mind you, even after cleaning, my office needs a new bookshelf installed to unpack the pile of boxes in the middle of the floor--but at least now it is possible to walk all the way around to the desks, shelves, printer, etc.)

Excellent. I now have someone to blame.
(I managed to get it cleaned up enough to accommodate a guest, so yay!)
I wish I could blame the overall mess in my apartment on vandals. *Looks around at still completely unpacked boxes and bins* x.x
Vandals are still a thing to blame.
Oh yes, they obviously came in and dirtied all my dishes and strewed all my dirty clothes all over the floor and not to mention spilled red wine on my white tablecloth. XD CURSE THEM.
