But, I told my back today to just shut the fuck up until I finished.
I did not get a true 'before' but here's after I hauled most of the shit out.
Here's the shit I hauled out.
Here's what it looks like now.
Plus, those plastic drawers in there? They all got emptied and sorted... Stuff to glue with, stuff to keep pages together, stuff to listen with, stuff needed to mail shit... etc. And on the top shelf is one of those utensil separators for the kitchen. It has ball point pens, pencils, fountain pens, little short pens, highlighters and one slot for Other Things To Write With.
I'm enormously satisfied.
The rest of yesterday's poke was perfect for lunch. Now I think I'll take the rest of the day off.
