Continuing my #RealityWednesday mode (click here for the origins), here is my messy desk. This is a tough one, because while I often whine about how messy my desk is, it makes me cringe to actually show you a picture of it.
But … sick husband, getting two kids into college, work stuff, life stuff, yada yada. The desk has been a low priority lately. I usually do a clean sweep every month or two, so I can function. As you can see, that hasn’t happened lately.

If you take a closer look, you’ll see:
A popcorn bucket from, uh, last weekend’s movies. It’s a great deal from Carmike, by the way; buy the bucket for $18 (or something like that), and it costs only $3.50 (or something like that) to fill up when you go to the movies. I see two or three movies a week for work, so I get my use out of it (though try not to consume too much movie popcorn, in general).
DVD and Blu-ray releases that need to be reviewed.
Assorted coffee cups, post-it notes, papers, and … a whole bunch of other stuff.
Really, it’s hard to function with this desk, so I’ve got to give it some attention this week. That is all.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
