When the tidyness has left... all I have is chaos

I am drowning in paper. Literally. My desk is covered with file folders, Post-It notes and random scraps of e-mails, purchase orders and even a set of airline tickets.

I have a real problem with clutter and mess so dealing with this has not been easy. I like it when I can put things away in their proper place. Thing is, none of this stuff has a proper place. Yet.

This all happened this week when I transfered all of my neat and orderly file folders to my new co-worker's desk and transfered everything from (former) Co-Worker Nina's desk to mine (as I am taking over her old responsibilities.) Except I didn't really prepare my desk for all the new stuff. I certainly did not have a system in place to handle all of this extra paperwork.

And so I am drowning. But I got a good start on things today, and I think by the end of the week, I will be back in my orderly, structured comfort zone. Thank goodness.
