What's on your computer desk, right now?

So, what's on your computer desk right now? Does your family pile all their personal junk onto your desk and expect you to work around it? What do you do when family members/kids put their stuff up on your desk? Do you make them take it away or just work around the added junk? Right now, there is an empty can of Planters mixed nuts; Dewalt tool box (empty, one empty glass, three stuffed animals and my daughter's collection of educational CD-Roms. It doesn't look much like a work desk, considering all the junk on my desk right now. And, just for the record, I did not put any of that junk on there. Well, maybe one thing. This morning my spouse added the tool chest and can of peanuts. And, last night, my daughter added her stuffed dolls and CD-Roms. I might have added the glass to the desk awhile ago, but then again, it could have been someone else. So, how does your computer desk or computer area look right now? And, this applies, even if your computer is on the kitchen table. So, feel free to share!

Geez, let's see...my pc with the printer and my camera, the extra phone, my jewelry box, my Petey's pic, a few what-not's, my Bible, a stack of mail, some notebooks and papers, a big bowl of markers for my charts, a candle, a large shoebox with a cat sleeping in it :) That's her newest bed by the way. Thankfully I have a big desk. I'm the only one that puts anything on it though since Hubby has his own. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Mine is quite stuffed too. Aside from the mouse and speakers, there's a clock, phone, dictionary, printer, cds, a stack of paper, pencil holder with pens and pencils, phone book, sticky papers, stapler, tape dispenser, an empty mug, ashtray, some notes and scratch papers, and the latest addition - bills. It takes getting used to for a while but now I can find my way through these.

I do all the junk piling. :) Hmm-taking inventory-top shelf-a stack of poetry books and a pink beanie-baby monkey named "Poet",a fake plant, galileo thermometer, photos of my hubby, candles, and a bunch of Celtic theme books. second shelf-a stack of empty journals-bless my in-laws-they keep buying them for me and I've yet to bleed a thought into any one of them! :) I do like the idea of journaling-and they're really nice-but time is the enemy there. A bowl of marbles.(Every place I've lived-we keep finding marbles on the property. I'm sure there's a metaphor there somewhere.) Below those-thesauruses and books about the writing craft. (Insert plug for "Zen in the Art of Writing" by Ray Bradbury here.) A wire caddy full of pencils and whatnots, a faux crystal clock. Digital camera and dock, a ceramic turtle-(??)-blank CDs, calculator, assorted papers, phone, lamp, more Cds, 2 boxes of potpourri, screwdrivers-(??) and a box of tealights that goes in the living room. Oh-and somewhere under all this there's a desktop. :)

Two checkbooks, a phone, several empty soda bottles, paperclips, the camera, a bunch of pens, a ton of notes and bills. To top it all off several textbooks, and a pile of homework (some of it mine, some of it the wive's). Of course, there is also the scanner/printer. And periodically, there will be a cat on the desk. ;)

My desk is always alot like yours sounds. School papers, toys, loose change out of my husbands pockets, empty glasses and snack plates. I also keep all my bills and mail on my desk, and it is always a mess because everyone seems to think they need to rifle through it and leave it askew. I also have the remote to the TV, ibuprofen, asthma meds and school fundraiser papers there, too. I had it cleared off over the weekend and it only takes a day or two for it to look like a tornado hit!
