An organized office

Forgive me for the kind of random post on this last day of 2011.

Unlike my lucky husband, I had to work yesterday. So, I figured I would spend about an hour cleaning and start the new year with an organized office. It felt so good to take this messy, chaotic drawer...


And turn it into this filing system. Every time I went into the drawer to pull something out, I was happy. It was well worth the time I spent cleaning and filing. Now if only I had a filing cabinet drawer at home to do this with.


I also have a desktop calendar at work to look forward to reading every day. It was a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law.


I need to start reading some blogs on organization. I found one via Pinterest. If you read any that you love, please link to them in the comments.

I am not going to make any formal resolutions for 2012, but being more organized is something I do want to focus on. I am a very organized person in my job and I have to be to do it well. At home, I tend to let food, magazines, etc. pile up and I'll surface clean instead of weeding things out.

My bus ride and lunch break yesterday were spent wanting to keep reading Catching Fire. I finished it today and while I enjoyed the book, I liked Hunger Games more. I am going to take a little break before reading Mockingjay.


Today was relaxing...we slept in a little, I made banana bread this morning, we went to the very crowded gym (oh joy, can't wait for January) and then Craig's friend Dan came over and we got a buffet lunch at Royal India in Milwaukee. I am not a buffet person, but this place never disappoints us.

They didn't have my favorite, paneer tikka masala, but I did have mutter paneer, saag paneer, an eggplant dish, aloo tikki (first time trying those and they're awesome), salad, naan and mango ice cream for dessert.


Since we ate out this afternoon and are still full from the buffet, we're not going out tonight. Just a nice evening at home to do whatever. I might watch The Help. I saw Sarah's Key last night and thought it was pretty good. It's been a weekend of movies adapted from books I have read.

Hope you have fun ringing in 2012! Catch you in the new year!


  1. Happy New Year Lisa! Enjoy your night!
