There’s a pattern with the messiness factor of my desk. By default, it’s generally super messy. Until I need to find something on it. Then I sift through everything looking for that something. Then I get frustrated, and stress-crying ensues. Then I decide to clean it. Then it gets messy again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
I’m at the frustrated, stress-crying level right now. There’s a bunch of tax info buried in the piles, and I really want to get my taxes done and over with as soon as humanly possible. So hopefully I’ll clean the desk off in the very near future – at least to a manageable point – and find everything I need.

Next week, it will be messy again.
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 like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like 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 of course, 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 Old Mission Peninsula.
