The Bulletin Board in Our Office...

The bulletin board (a large cork board that takes up most of one wall) in our home office just came CRASHING DOWN about 45 minutes ago!

It shocked the hell out of me and made a ton of noise. I'd swear I heard glass breaking, but I didn't find anything broken (at least, not YET). Admittedly, my desk is a cluttered mess, so it's hard to see what flew off the board and landed there. And I had the board covered with stuff (I also have one in my bedroom that's not quite as bad), so it's no wonder it fell down!

I've put it up with better nails this time (I took great care in re-hanging it). And I'm putting stuff back that fell off. But what a MESS!

I'm glad I was HOME when it happened, anyway, or I'd probably be blaming the cats. Neither was involved (they were both sitting at the back door looking out at squirrels). This is probably a sign that I need to clean it off again -- and clean off my desk. I've just been so busy that I keep piling on more things... (sigh)

Well, after that weird interruption, back to work! I've got a lot to do.
