I seek enlightenment........or at least some comments

So here's my situation. The 10/9 point cartoonist road to recovery has been absorbed, and is a starting point. My disorganized world is, slowly, being handled. With that, it brings working space & productivity. The reorganization has brought about a little problem........literally hundreds of idea notes & rough sketches. So what's the problem, "Where do I begin !!!"
I draw "gags", and peddle my own wares. Our recent move & the daughter's college tuition were easy to deal with compared to what I'm now facing. It's a classic case of "Sensory Overload." I would be interested to hear from any & all that may have been/or are in a similar position. I've been married, forever, with 3 daughters (13,15, 18), so I"m used to taking criticizms (it's pms everyday, of every week in our house, and I'm always wrong!) ). That passes for conversation to me. However, I would really appreciate a little insight. Thanks !!!

Sensory Overload is something I've dealing with lately, and the biggest way to get thru it/around it is to try to channel it, I think.

I mean, look at the idea of refining the sketches and idea notes as a way to get some clairity. That's what I've been doing with painting and some web comic stuff I've been working on and it's actually working.

Heck, I think I need to do that tonight. It's been one of those days.

Thanks Mal! Finding the clarity, has been like trying to remember that one must drain the swamp........while one is up to their "#%^" in alligators.
