Just last week all was in order; not wonderful or well-organized, but clean and cleared. Even my desk was orderly -- all papers filed, no coffee rings, pens and pencils put away, dusted. Some people never learn to make cleaning after themselves a habit...no matter how many attempts have been made, how many resolutions posted, how many oaths pledged.
The one thing I can do is get it done when the realization of just how bad it is finally becomes apparent. So rather than clean up after myself each day, I'm reduced to a weekly horror show.
