My Desk

This new job I have taken keeps me pretty bored. I must admit, I get paid nice to sit and be bored. But I absolutely hate not doing anything.

So often I ponder things while I am sitting there. Which brings me to today's topic.

Have you ever just looked at something for so long that you start to read into things?

I noticed that my desk at work is always kept very neat and tidy. Seriously for those that know me otherwise, my desk at work is perfect. Everything has a place and everything is in it's place. My hanging file drawers are neat and organized where anyone can find exactly what they are looking for when they need it. Even my binders are alphabetized and in order.

However, if you open my 2 private drawers in my desk things are not so tidy. Things are mostly thrown or shoved in where I can find room.

This is kind of like my emotions. Everything looks perfect on the surface, but underneath I can be a wreck.

So take a look around at your desk. What does it say about you? Are you too like your desk?

My desk is my personal space. It is my comfort zone. You enter there you accept me for who I am. I am not a neat freak by any stretch of the imagination. You can see the top of my desk and it is clean but don't look in the drawers!

I don't think there is any correlation between my desk, or my house, and my emotions. I surely am NOT that "all over the place"!

My house and my desk aren't immaculate or anything, but they are very tidy.

However, my car is disgusting. I don't ever wash it (we live on a gravel road, so by day 2 it would be a total waste of time and money.) I don't take care of the interior much either... I let the kids eat and drink and leave kleenexes in it. I toss junk mail in the backseat when I check the mailbox on the way home from work each day, there are about 47 toys in the backseat that Garrett feels the need to drag with him everywhere. And I also think there are shoes, books, and beach towels in the car....

So thr house/desk stuff doesn't apply much to me, but oh boy, does my car ever!! :)
