Losing my frustrations  
I have become over the past week or two more and more frustrated with work. It's not what I am doing or who I am working with. What has been leaving me frustrated is the environment in which I am working.

I am just enough behind that I am working in squallor, which if I take time to clean it up makes me more behind. Being behind, in turn, makes my work area messier faster. This wouldn't be an issue in any of my old jobs, but my job here requires a lot of space. When all I was doing was filing a single counter and a single shelf were terrific. But with the mail processing, I want more space to work with. I want to be able to have a clean area to work in without needing to reorganize all of the materials I am working with on a sometimes hourly basis.

This has left me snippish all week. I will be working on something and someone will bring things to put on my desk and I proceed to have a little freakout. The careful organization I had for my filings is almost completely destroyed.

So, I am busy trying to finish my catch up process today, so I can clean my desk completely tomorrow. Unfortunately, I seem to get behind every Monday and slowly get caught up by the end of the work week.

In a way this is funny, because I am not a neat person or even that highly organized, but in this one location I want high amounts of order and cleanliness. Go figure.

Oh, it's totally understandable. I'm the same way. My desk here is a mess, and I struggle to clean it up, more crap gets put there, and argh!

I just want things neat, and it is neater than it was, but still, so much to shovel.
