Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teacher
From my chair I see (I kinda don't want to paint this picture for you) A double dog crate, with 2 cats lounging safe from the dog On top of the crates: The printer, a stack of paper and a pile of new ink cartriges Cat food Cat treats Magnet letters A basket of bags of magnets - sorted to maybe give away, but what if I need them for school one day? Extra curriculum books that need to be returned. Empty binders A lapdesk, folded with a vague plan to make it part of a diy standing desk because this is a lot of sitting Next to the crates, A ladder perched to finish the electical work for the new router placement. My bulletin board propped up against the wall it used to hang on. From my chair I see My desk, with 1 dog pretending to lounge but really tring to see the cats. On top of my desk: Grade 1 phonics Grade K writing I spy cards - I thought they'd be fun to use with kids, but when I looked more closely, they are just creepy. Glasses cleaner Glasses cleaner cloths - 3 of them. A box of tissues My ballot - must drop off tomorrow! (Feel free to bug me about this) 2 staplers. Why 2? A rainbow of pens, now out of their fidgeted rainbow order. My earrings from today Stickers: Still Growing, Coffee is always a good idea, I am a teacher who writes Stickies: Call dentist, Find Joy, piles of blanks A word wall card: at earbuds My computer 2 lamps A document camera A mug of cold tea: "Write your own story" 1/3 of a can of lemon lime seltzer A dog training collar beeper, at the ready. From my chair I see A mess -- A perfect metaphor for my mind

Sometimes the mess in our workspace is indicative of how cluttered our minds feel.
