Time to put in some progress on those projects which your boss cares about and which have been waiting for a while and which can be completed in less than an hour. See if you can knock out two of these without negatively impacting other important things, but even one is good.
Be sure to send an email to your boss reporting on any significant progress.
Clean up and/or optimize your project space for a bit this evening. Just vacuuming or sweeping if that area's gotten less pleasant to be in is good progress. Think about if there are things you need to change to make it easier for you to work on things in comfort.
I offered to store a folding table my boyfriend wasn't using and didn't have a good place to store and bought a better chair than the one I'd had. Since then I actually did scan some old photos that had been waiting years to get done and the space is very inviting to sit down and move other paper projects forward at last.
