Since I last spoke to you I have been attacking the files and my desk...finally! The mass of papers on the floor is the shredding pile. When Karma discovered that I was moving around too much and that she couldn't sleep on that tempting pile due to the paper raining down on her, she decided to sleep safely up on her chair. I think Miss Karma found sorting files as boring as I did--LOL!!
This is why I was so confused about my school loans. Two loans. Over the past seven years there were papers from ten different outfits! I have been handed over to this one and that one. Come to find out that I now think two of them I deal with are for the same single loan. Dang! I think they are out to deliberately befuddle me--LOL! I tossed almost everything except from the last year and that is how I found out--addresses are the same. Finally starting to make some sense!
I think I finally got the top drawer of the big file cabinet done on Monday night.
Then yesterday I worked on the desk file drawer...
...and added to the paper pile. Whenever I went to take a long break, Miss Karma pawed...
...and rolled about like the newly rich folks you see in movies rolling around in their money--LOL! Well, it is treasure in her eyes. ;)
I kept plugging away on the areas that were on my desktop and in the bottom drawer of the file cabinet.
The mess expanded on the table...
...and on the floor. This is what the floor still looks like this morning.
I got the one side of the bottom drawer in the file cabinet together...
...the drawer with all the small office supplies in my desk cleaned and organized...
...and had started on the--what would you call that wooden thing on the desk? Two drawers and four slots on top for files or whatever. I absolutely love it, but I can't remember what it was actually called when I bought it all those years ago. Desk organizer?
Anyways, my body started screaming at me last night...so that was that. I'll have to wait a good while to get to the rest because it really hurt to get out of bed this morning and walking isn't much fun, either. I guess Dagan is going to have to help a lot with dinner tonight. ;)
Leah has an appointment to get her hair trimmed after work, so she'll be here a little later. I am hoping they can pick up the pile off the floor for me. I might have a box in the storage area, but I know I have one in the garage, for sure.
I'm glad they are coming over tonight. Otherwise I would just have to leave the pile on the floor for days and days--LOL! ;) I am soooo glad I got so much done, tho!! Makes me very, very happy. I am probably close to three quarters done with the file cabinet and the entire desk and hutch in three days--tada! True--ten years ago I would have had that all done in probably half a day, but I am delighted to have gotten this far this fast--even if I have to take a few days off to recover before I can dig into it again and finish. Been putting this off for years. I'd do the happy dance if I could. ;)
It has cooled down up here for quite a while, but still can't open the apartment up. Like this morning when I got up it was 61 degrees but 90% humidity. I know those of you who are melting in the 100 degree heat would love to take the 60-80s every day. I feel guilty telling you and, believe me, I'm not complaining. Summer passes very quickly up here in the first place. Won't be long and the kids will be back in school, the leaves will be falling, and our 6 months of winter will begin--LOL!
Be well and happy!! :):)
