January 11 is Clean Up Your Desk Day
I'm trying to work up some enthusiasm for Clean Up Your Desk Day, but I think it will be more like Clean Up Your Room Week. All that stuff on my desk needs to be tossed or filed, and the files aren't set up very well yet. If I had a place for some of those odds and ends, they wouldn't be sitting on my desk in the first place. When my mom used to live here this desk was as neat as a pin and she, and later I, used to sit there and pay the bills.
The desk stayed fairly neat until we moved here with both computers, my writing reference books, all the tax stuff, all the business records, and everything else it takes to run my writing business. I'm sure I'll be able to toss 50% off it. It would be easier if I didn't have to shred half of what needs tossing.
I would like to know who makes these crazy holidays up. There's even a “Hell Freezes Over Day.' I kid you not. There's a whole web site devoted to listing these holidays by date . I'll be trying to clean off my desk on Monday, since I really do need to do that before I can calculate how much sales tax I have to pay by the end of the month. But I'd much rather be celebrating another holiday listed for Monday – National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friend Day. We've even had enough rain this week to make it possible.
Which holiday would you rather celebrate on Monday? There's also National Hot Toddy Day, Secret Pal Day, Milk Day, Learn Your Name in Morse Code Day, Cigarettes Are Hazardous to Your Health Day, and the very serious National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. I chose the topic for my blog Monday as I did because I need a photo to base the blog on. It was easier to photograph my desk than finding a friend to splash by stepping in a puddle.
