Time For Work




This weekend, I spent most of Saturday and Sunday cleaning and reorganizing my garage. It is still not done, but I have made significant progress. I am moving my tools and workbench to another location in the garage, and I am going to hang suspended shelving for storage in the part of the garage that had my work area. I am also planning to hang new peg board, and the biggest thing... actually use it so that I have easier access to my tools. During the last two years, my garage has become more and more of a disaster. Part of it was the fact that I was storing my mother's old car in the garage and it was something I was avoiding dealing with. So, instead of putting tools away, I would just put them in a box and stuff them somewhere in the garage. Part of the disarray is from the various emotional issues I have had since my mother's passing.

But I am looking forward to a newly clean and better organized space. It will be helpful to me at many levels.

I am work now, taking a short break to write this, before I get back to the myriad of administrative tasks I have due today. In one of my classes, I get to give an exam, so I will have an extra 90 minutes to catch up on the administrative nonsense as well.

The image? I chose it simply because I am feeling hungry for Mediterranean food right now.

When you get done organizing your work area you can come and organize mine cuz I never seem to get around to it.

You can change everything but where the metal lathe is, it stays where it is at.

My tools are organized and in order. My paper work is almost large scale confetti. Don't we all have challenges?

I always feel good after I de-clutter/organize around the house/at work.
I hope you do too!
