Sunday Scribblings--Mess

I discovered Sunday Scribblings several weeks ago, but I keep forgetting to actually *do* anything with it.  Then I got a nifty new note and calendar app, and this week I actually remembered!  Hurray for fun gadgets.

But this babbling is taking me nowhere.  I'm just trying to avoid the actual writing prompt.  This week, the word is "mess."  Mess.  It's a word I use a lot.  It's a word I live with a lot.  We are slobs.  I would like to change that.  I have no idea where to start, and I have no idea how to get any energy and motivation and time to make it happen.

My desk is a mess, too, but not the same kind of mess.  There's a lot of stuff that I need to find places for, but it's not an out-of-control mess the way the rest of the house is.  But it's still a mess that needs dealing with.

Argh!  Mess!  It's everywhere and it's overwhelming and *where is my fairy housecleaning godmother*?!

Mess.  Someday, I'm going to make it go away.

school is out so we are in the process of trying to clean out things we let go for too long - closets and garage to name a few. I can only deal with one "mess" at a time!

My desk is a mess too. However at the moment I convince everybody that I know where everything is, even though that is not true.

The secret is to make a show of tidying up a little every now and then to appear to be neat.

Mess is a home, tidy is a house.
