I got very industrious yesterday and decided to work on my horrific, many-layers deep, totally covered, disgusting desk. I set the oven timer for one hour and worked like crazy, just starting at the top (like an archaeologist!) and going through everything on my desk. I separated stuff into piles. I had a pretty big "paper recycle" pile, a pile for "goes upstairs to DH's office," a pile of "computer work," a pile to go to another room, you get the idea. After an hour, I set the oven timer for another hour and I sat down to work on the pile called "read through." I didn't get all the way through it, but made some good progress. Now, I have to say that, although my desk isn't completely cleaned off, it's great to see some of the nice wood surface finally showing through! I planned to set the timer for an hour today, too, and any subsequent days it takes to get completely through. I admit I haven't done it yet today, but the day isn't over yet! I still have more desktop to clean off, and some of those piles to go through. But I feel much better about it all, and so very, very happy to have gotten things started in the right direction.
