Hey, look! I finally remembered to take a picture before I did the work!!! This a sh*tload of papers that I have been meaning to file since -let me check- July. That’s right. At the bottom of the stack was an invoice from way back in July. It’s October now. Sooooo, that would mean… four months ago.
And I only wish I was getting paid for the product placement in this photo! Certainly would be nice to get some of the money back that I spend there EVERY DAMN DAY. But that’s my own fault for getting addicted. See that stack of papers on the right? Those are the receipts the husband brought back from his business trip to HK. Cause in my real life, we do this and this and this and this for our bread & butter.
Here is a photo mid-way thru the sorting process:
And more product placement. Damn why aren’t I getting paid for that?! At this point, I’d be working on the stack for about 30 minutes. Sorting, sorting, sorting. Asking myself the same question I ask myself everytime I do this, “why did you let it go for so long AGAIN you moron?” Then another 30 minutes of sorting, sorting, sorting. THEN! I finally got to the bottom of the stack, Huzzah!
Now I could actually file the papers in their proper folder in the filing cabinet. Incidentally, this took another 15 minutes.
Here is what my desk looked like upon completion:
Wow, I almost don’t know what to do with all the desk space I’ve recovered from the piles upon piles of papers. And as I inevitably do at the end of this ordeal, I’ve promised myself not to let it get so outta hand again. I will file the papers two or three times a month rather than waiting FOUR months. Well, we shall see.
Oh, by the way, this is what the desk in my home office looks like.
Do you think I have a problem? A little problem with filing? And I swear I did not intentionally set that Target bag there just for this photo!! (And WHY aren’t I getting paid for the placement again? I need to talk to some people about this situation.) It has been sitting there on top of the THIRD stack of papers since last week. It’s filled with expired medicines that I’ve been planning to take to the pharmacy for proper disposal. Uh, I’ll get right on that!
Thanks for listening (or reading, if you must be technical),
