...continued from Expat's Tag
When asked to come up with 6 things about myself, I immediately thought of one of my worst habits which is to "Dump and Run"... whatever's in my hands gets put down - right there, and I'm on to the next thing. In reply to this, ET had this to say:
Dave I love the D&R's one.... I'm scared to know what your house looks like. On the other hand, I teach the D&R technique daily to tweens who just don't understand that doing it right now is so much easier than spending all afternoon when you could be playing to clean it up....
Well, I don't know about "tweens", (yes, I know...) but perhaps this Turtle could use a lesson in D&R Avoidance.
To give you some examples, I immediately grabbed the camera and took a few "at this moment in time" shots to demonstrate just what my house looks like... on a fairly regular basis. For those readers who would be frightened away, here's your heads up. I am, after all, a bachelor!
Firstly, the worst space for D&R is the pony wall just inside the front door:
The ball cap is from this morning's gardening endeavour
The coffee mug is... *shreek* yesterday's coffee mug!!
The binder tends to live here as it's my daytimer.
The keys, cell phone and sunglasses come and go as I do and can be found on just about any surface at any given time.
The Kit Kat came in the door on Sunday night after dinner with my folks. It's an Easter treat for Sarah.
The bowl is kitty's water dish for the porch.
The front room is just to the left of the front door as you enter.
From near-field to rear:
A projection screen I showed to a client who wants to use it for his wedding slide show. It goes to the shop in the next trip - or at least that's the theory...
You recognize the bag and shoes from the previous post, right?
The papers are a project that should have been tidied up... a while ago...
The vase lives on the table
The box on the chair is definitely D&R! Bad Turtle!!
On to the... BATHROOM!!
Here we see incoming laundry... ready for the closet.
Now... the dreaded OFFICE!!
Here we see a paper-cutting project: request cards for the wedding on Saturday. It's "over there", so... no rush... yah... right.
Looking up some numbers
Reading from a book
The Desk Calendar
*sigh* perhaps this is one reason S. is in my life. She's all about "a place for everything and everything in its place." A good mentor, partner and friend!
...so, ET, do I qualify for therapy?
