OK. I confess.
I was doing really well with my simplification plan. My life was becoming more and more orderly. I felt calmer. I felt . . . righteous.
That was the first of the semester. Now, all the grading has hit and I feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water. Oh, I haven't given up. I'm not quitting. But I'm not always "following through," either. Some days I toss my bag on the floor when I get in from work instead of putting it in its place. I don't always sort and put the mail in the nice little container I bought just for that purpose. My desk is not always a clean, organized expanse when I leave for the day.
I think I need to re-boot.
