Home Office

There are a lot of pros and cons to having a home office.  My biggest con is that mine is right when you walk in the front door.  
 What you see when you are standing in my entry way. See?  EMBARRASSING! 

The plus?  
I am on the main floor where I can hear and see everything going on and if my boys want to use the computer, I have full vision and hearing of that activity.  

I am not at all a trendy person - but I am considering myself as much because I doing what everyone else and their dog/cats/and children are doing this week - cleaning and organizing!
Master Bedroom done - this is the bag of trash to prove it! 

I have ZERO motivation today.  Not sure why.  My only thought of this mess is "Well, this is embarrassing.  I should pick this up."

And so that has led me to posting some pictures.

 Coupon binder and mess of coupons.  I am actually NOT couponing any longer.  It's just too much for me right now.  I needed a break. 
 Paper piles and clothes to list in my ebay store today.
 Bookshelves.  I see all these pretty blogs with their perfect offices.  WHERE do they put their STUFF?  Do they not have any?  Where do the printer labels, extra paper, and things go?  Am I the ONLY one alive who has things?  Or do I just have too much? 
 Archaic attempts to become organized.  I love the idea of this.  I just stink at it. 
 This gorgeousness belongs to the a la mode maven, Shelli.  I can't really get rid of my black desk at this point, but I LOVE this room.  It's just beautiful.  

I never said MY blog was one to make you envious!

If nothing else I hope you read this and leave feeling a spring in your step and better about your own situation since you are not in mine today!  
I'll report back later...

I'm cleaning and organizing too today! I have way too much stuff and always wonder where the "neat" people hide theirs! lol!

I have no motivation today, either. I feel like I want to wait until the kids are out of the house next week. And that is exactly why I ended up moving my office! Now I shut the door, but it is still trashed. Oh well.

Cleaning, what's that? Is that what we are supposed to be doing these days? No wonder why my house looks like a bomb went off.

I cleaned out my mom's garden today and tomorrow we are planting seeds...does that count?
My own digs will have to wait!

I love this post. Just had to say it. But seriously, where do people put their stuff?

Wondering the same thing.....where is everyone's stuff?? I once had a cleaning lady (you know the one) who told me that she cleans for people who are much more organized than me and who never leave papers/stuff just lying around. Well good for them - but that's not my reality (hence the reason I need a cleaning lady....)! Can't wait to see your new pictures :)

I have a black desk, too. :-) AND 20 year old black laminate countertops. My office looks a lot like yours. But take heart! Some really important people had very messy offices. We're in good company.
