Why do I have a Christmas Tree on my desk?
Currently on my desk: one tube of yellow paint, one card from the game "One Fish, Two Fish; Red Fish, Blue Fish," 9 books including J. Moltmann, God in Creation, two books on Whigs, two books on Dorothea Dix, Ray's, A Treatise on the Medical Jurisprudence of Insanity, two books on particular trials, Ahlstrom's Religious History of the American People, and an interloper from Doug's work: Christ, History and Apocalyptic. There is also one Wee Sing tape All God's Children, a mug, the cover for the Dylan cd. OH MERCY!, a big file box of articles, a copy of ENDNOTE waiting to be installed, my laptop, Prince Charming's magnetic top, a flower made of pipe cleaners, a picture of Johanna and I making a snowman, 10 note books, a card with dates for Doug's dentist appointments, and a card with a picture of an RCMP Mountie and his horse Honest Ed, a reindeer shaped cookie cutter, a toy John Deere Tractor, and the especially out of place Christmas tree. Might I have an organization problem? No wonder work is coming slowly this morning. I cleaned my desk and feel slightly better.

Tonight is just a ticking time bomb. The house an absolute disaster; I want to clean it desperately. But, B and A are away, there is a glut of dishes that have to be done before I can start, and dollars - to -donuts M will wake up before I've even filled the sink. Plus, I have a sermon to write. Plus, I have two dissertation chapters to finish. I know, I know, why waste five minutes on this stupid blog? I just am overwhelmed by tasks that absolutely can't ALL be finished in this current space/time continuum. And, to make matters worse, I am the most scattered, ADD, flighty mess of a women in the whole entire world! And, to make matters slightly more worse, I am not one step closer to actually learning grammar, and I can't find my lost library book. ARGHHHHH! AND ARGHHHHH! AND ARGHHHHHH!
