So I decided to tackle the paperwork monster. I got all cocky when I started to pay bills. Now I am attacking the files that Chris had in multiple places. I emptied all the baskets and drawers. They are all now folded into the filing system that Chris put in place when we put in the office. I am not quite done but I am tired of date arranging papers. (A giant tub sounds good right now.)
GRRR. I just found another folder with the word “File” on the tab.
This is a much larger job than I thought but it is well worth it. This moves 90% of the information back to the office where it belongs. There needs to be a couple of binders upstairs but no more “basket to no ware.” Chris is the most organized person I know. She makes great sense of chaotic information. She tried to make it easy for me, the pile maker, to put stuff away. All the extra storage locations resulted in quite a mess. I think it is easier for me to come around to her system, then her to try and accommodate me.
Since I am easily distracted, (obviously) I need to dive back in. (I am multi-tasking and doing laundry at the same time so distractions come easily.)
