Clean Office Challenge

Normally I would start off a post like this “Does anyone else feel like their house is always destroyed during the Holidays?”

Lynn Terry’s Elite Brainstorming group has been challenged to get organized and the overwhelming response was that everyone’s office is a huge mess. Getting back into the swing of things after a few days off, I had intended to clean up my office this week anyway but Lynn suggested taking pictures. Once I looked at the pictures of my office, I started noticing things I have been putting off.

Office needs cleanup!

I am a huge believer in public accountability. Now you know my office is a mess so I have to clean it up and give you pictures so you see what my office really looks like.

Good Bye Xmas tree!

Note to Self- DON'T put Christmas tree in office next year.

Note to self- DON’T Put the Christmas tree in my office next year. I’ve got to go buy a new shredder. Yes that whole garbage bag needs to be shredded.

Thanks for playing along. I’ll be back next week with pictures of a bright clean office.

  3. […] As 2 year olds do, she was very interested in when we were going home and what we were going to do when we got there. Jonathan told her that he was coming home for a few minutes but had to go back to work. She seemed to accept this for a few moments but then pressed further about why he couldn’t stay and play with her. He said “But Riley I have to go back to the office.” When she heard “office”, she immediately responded, “Daddy, Why can’t you work in Mommy’s office?” […]
