Starting off 2010 right!

Several of my blogging buddies have descried making New Year's resolutions this year. I'm undecided as to whether I will — I haven't met them the last couple of years, but it still seems like a good "year in review" topic for my blog.

One thing I did decide to do was start off 2010 the right way: clean and organized! This afternoon I cleaned my desk, and what was covered in stacks of papers up to a foot high (!), now looks like this:

My inbox is still a bit full, but the fact that you can actually see the surface of my desk is a vast improvement.

I also made all my files for 2010, did a few last things to organize my files from 2009, and planned a fun book giveaway for my horse blog. An uncharacteristically motivated way to begin the year!

If it's anything like my desk, it will stay that way for about, oh, two days. ha ha

Wow. That is a fantabulous way to start 2010! Glad to see you're doing well, Katharine.

Hope your holidays were just the bestest ever! (Yeah, that isn't a real word - but SO fun!) :-D

Kathy, if it makes you feel any better, it started slowly getting messier within a week of cleaning it. Right now it's not QUITE as bad as it was, but it's bad again. :o)

Michele, good to see you back! Hope you are doing well!
