I can't make a mess (house guest)
and I'm frustrated, as usual, that I have a pile of stuff sitting around (good ideas that get pushed aside in favor of things like writing holiday cards and thank you notes).

So what I tried in the evening was just picking up one sheet from the top and doing it.

Sounds like the simplest advice in the world, but it's making me use the systems I have (put the new address in the address book, make the note for a future trip on a page for that trip in my project book, file the cute photo and discard the one I've admired enough).

I'll try this for the next fortnight and see if I can get ahead of my wishful piling.
