I don’t feel like writing…

It just isn’t inside of me to write today. I can write a story usually in 30 to 60 minutes depending on size, but when it isn’t there no matter of coaxing will help.

When it is there I have to let it out. Really strange how that works, for me anyhow.

I don’t know what to do with myself right now. I am bored. I can’t sit still. I have a ton of boxes to go through still, but not much room left and there is still stuff upstairs that I am going to want. I am letting things go, but I am just overflowing with my hoarded stuff.

I need room in my file cabinets and I have 4 drawers worth at least. I used to sort all the medical out and put in files, but it is out of control and I just throw them in piles all over. They are not in any type of numerical/date order so finding anything isn’t easy anyhow. They are mixed up even on one page. Wonder if I should go paperless. I don’t use them for taxes anymore since I don’t make enough to file taxes.

I can’t go paperless with them. Stupid company. No paperless option. I am just going to toss them all. I can get the info online. Same with pharmacy slips.

So I am going through paper and tossing into recycle bag. Not shredding. Nothing too important on the papers.

I am rounding up pics of the kids (grandkids mostly) and putting them in a bag and hanging the newer ones the girls gave me of their kids.

Sun is going in and out. Just wish it would stop at the out point and stay there.

Praise be the Lord,

    I find a scanner helpful for cutting down on paper waste and clutter. Once it’s scanned onto the hard drive, you have it available and can print it out but no mess to fuss with. Just a thought.

      Good idea, but I have the EOB’s online. Don’t need to scan them. I don’t feel like scanning a bunch of stuff and saving. Even a USB drive can get corrupted and lose your files.

    I do not trust the computer to “save” anything. For some folks the computer version of bills and other important papers is great. I don’t want to count on the machine. I just feel better when I can hold the information in my hand. lol Yes, I use an ereader but sometimes, I want the actual book. May I suggest that you just do one small bit of work on the boxes of paper? I find I can manage to do small jobs for a short period of time and eventually, it adds up to something significant. Try just one job?

    My Dearest Tessa,
    Sounds like somehow you are in mom’s office, she had been doing the same thing with everything since my brother died in 2002. I didn’t realize how bad it was until her stroke and I had to take over paying bills. Being legally blind I need to set up a reading station and the office was such a fire hazard to plug anything else in. I started bringing small piles into the living room until I could find her chair, then desk then computer. As you know, a year later I am still at it. As you once told me, baby steps is the key to getting a project done. As for scanning everything into the hard drive, this week mom’s computer completely crashed, no way to get online, no banking, no Amazon.com it’s all gone unless I pay hundreds to fix it, and I don’t have that. So I got what I could on my phone and paid bills old school by mailing checks. Not bad for a blind homebound old woman, honestly, if I can then so can you! I got your back and believe in you! ♡

      Thank you. Baby steps. I threw out a huge bag of paper to recycle. Space in my file cabinets now. Did I get it all I don’t know and I am not blind just can’t see straight sometimes. I just had Microsoft install Office 365 for me. I couldn’t do it. Nice guy, but of course there is a learning curve there. Will take me forever. Good job on the old fashioned way.
