I have to take deep breaths and dive in again.
In the meantime I am clearing off the dining table so I can put the desk stuff there and use it as a sorting table. So many piles for the estate. So many for the foundation. So many for my personal life.
What doesn't make sense, and I knew this going in, is that a person like me has no business taking on other tasks that involve more paperwork. Isn't it enough to try to track my own crap? No, apparently not.
Of course there are many theories about these things. I'm deliberately creating clutter so I can hide my inadequacies? So I can have an excuse to procrastinate? Oh, hell.
