While I am not completely finished, I have made great progress. My desk is completely cleaned off and organized. I even set up my charging station for my iPod, phone, camera, and tablet (back left corner). I have always set my lamp up on something, and the station itself is the perfect height. All things from the top have been put away.
Before and after (and notice in the before that my computer isn't even on the desk):

One of my sons and I have been sick for a week. Miserable existence, but it could be so much worse. I was feeling a little energy last night before bedtime, so I made a list of a few things to get done today. Then, drats, I only slept about an hour and got up until after 4:30 this morning.
The 3rd thing on my list of 21 (I stopped making the list at that point because it was becoming depressing and overwhelming) was to finish arranging the flowers in the cone in my bathroom. Here is what the bathroom sink area looked like after we took down the big mirror and installed medicine cabinets WITH STORAGE!! After much deliberation, I purchased a floral cone made out of a thick wire-looking stuff that had been aged to rust and looked good. I had a dickens of a time getting something to look good IN it, however. This is what I came up with this AM:

The center of the Little ZZ (I think that stands for Zig Zag) is finished. I am so done in. Whatever this is that has me by the throat (literally) is wearing me out. It's like a cold that has all settled in my throat. Makes me cough a lot, and I'm short of breath nearly all the time. Heaven forbid I have to WALK!!
This did, indeed turn out the projected size of 17-1/2" x 23".
Here is the progress picture on my runner. I did it. I rearranged some of the blocks. I noticed in the sample picture that there are 3-5 blocks of one color in a row, so I f-o-r-c-e-d myself to do it.
The top left corner is sewn together, and I have 3 more rows pieced to add later (just lying quietly on the design wall). Off for an errand and might sew more later.
My sweet 14-year-old got her top braces off yesterday. We left our house at 7:30 and didn't get home until 4:15. I have been under the weather (yes, that's me coughing and hacking), so I was completely exhausted after all that running around.
We went to Hobby Lobby for a couple specific things. I always peruse the quilt magazines while I'm there. I saw this little runner (17" x 23") and decided to give it a go.
