It had to be done.
Yesterday, I spent several hours organizing paperwork, responding to emails, paying bills, cleaning out my desk, and filing documents.
It was boring, headache-educing, and, as my youngest would say, “none fun”.
Normally, I’m a pretty organized person. I have several systems in place for managing bills, paperwork, etc. However, the past two months were filled with much activity – tons of fun stuff with family and encouraging progress at work.
So, yesterday, I sat down with a huge stack of paperwork, a large cup of coffee, and started digging.
I will not bore you with too many details (I filed some paperwork, paid a few bills, sorted through email, updated passwords, etc.) It was tedious, but necessary work. And it reminded me -
Life is better, organized.
What took me almost an entire day (minus a couple of hours spent interacting with actual, live humans, in conversation), should have been dealt with in a few minutes, once or twice a week.
Side note – A few weeks ago, I took a trip to Washington D.C. with my son and other family members. I highly recommend a visit, if you have never been. The D.C. Metro is clean and efficient, the various Smithsonian Museums were amazing, and the views from Arlington were breathtaking.
