"Taming" the Papers
As I sat looking at the above yesterday, I was thinking there must be a better way to "tame" my papers!! If so, I guess I don't know what it is :) My bills are always paid on time and permission slips and such are always signed and sent back to school. I really had high hopes on Monday, that I could get the papers on the counter organized. I had my papers spread all over the kitchen table in several small piles. Instead, before I knew it, it got to be about dinner time and my husband said something like, "when are you planning on putting all these papers away??" Once again, I put all my papers back on the kitchen counter. What I've found, is that I really need just a few hours to sort through everything. With the ending of the school year (Lauren is done, Dominic is not) and planning summer activities, finding those few couple of "free" hours has been a bit challenging!! I'll sit down and start and then the phone will ring or I'll remember I need to do a load of laundry. This morning, I have taken the time to slow down, drink a cup of coffee and start sorting. Wish me luck!
