I'm watching Striking Distance on Encore

The topic: Well, the file cabinet is done


I found receipts in there back to 1998! Shredded. There was so much to shred, I filled the basket up twice.

I did get a pretty bad papercut, it bled for about twenty seconds. Then I put a band-aid on it. And everytime I washed my hands (I was multi-tasking, also making dinner), the band-aid fell off. Once I didn't put another one on and it started bleeding again. But that was the only major injury. Office work is dangerous.

It's getting late and I'll finish this stuff up tomorrow. I need to figure out which bank account paid what portion of which bills (like our cable bill; it all comes in one account, but the television portion is personal, internet is company and fax line is the other company). Lots of fun, but I'm starting to get tired and that's when I start taking shortcuts that have me scratching my head at the end of the year. You know "what the hell did I do here?"

The topic: Not ready to work yet


I need to take FocusSmart and ZipFizz to get my mind situated. There was a news article a couple of days ago about a genetic connection  for certain disorders. I'm pretty sure my mom had issues and I know her mother had issues. I think they've diluted in me, but there are some things about me I know aren't like other people. sick

I'm special.

Anyway, I know I have a hard time getting started, but once I do, I don't stop until I'm done. Or get bored, whichever comes first. But making myself focus (oooh, shiny!) is the first step. Then, before I know it, all done!

And I just realized when I made that link above, it's not rendering the way I'd like. Oh, great, something else to do....

And an hour and a half later I can't believe how stinking easy that should have been. Ah, the joys of thinking things will be more difficult than they actually are. No brainer. Even Brian could have told me how to do it, but I don't play in the same places he does online.

The topic: My new bottles got here yesterday


They're a little bigger than the other ones I've got and my Mrs. Dash caps aren't going to work.  Boo! But I've still got all of those jars from spice racks in the past (with stuff still in them) and I can wash those out and use those. It's not like much of what I use needs to be sprinkled on anyway.

But I didn't get them done by the end of the week, I missed my goal. I did start putting labels on the large jars, I had three done when I realized "no, that's not what I want it to say, I want it to say "seasoned bread crumbs" not "bread crumbs".  I want it to say "whole wheat flour", not just "whole wheat".  Yeah, I can be a mite anal at times. At least that's what I've heard.

So, I pulled the labels off and will redo them.

I won't be doing this today, though. Because upgrading this software yesterday got me more aware of the office surroundings. I did wash the throw rugs in here (floor is cement, so I put some little runner carpets and a throw rug down to make it look less industrial...*lol*) and cleaned up the cat pee left by the cats who seem to think the whole place is a litterbox. Love my vinegar, that's for sure. Cleans this stuff up nicely without harsh chemicals that might hurt the kitty cats. What I'd really like is some sort of device that would trigger a blast of air when it detected a rise in moisture content of the air. Scare that pee back into the kitties.

Tired of Georgie walking on the stacks of paperwork I have to sort through, I brought a table in and put it on that. Couldn't leave it here overnight, didn't want a stinky wet mess when I started working on it today, so it's in the extra room right now.  First I'll pull out the personal files and box those up, then Brian's old company files for 2011 (I like to keep the previous year's files in here so they're easily accessible), box those up, then start setting up new file folders for this year. Once that's done, I can start filing, which should give me more space.

Then I can catch up on invoicing for Fit Rite.

Looks like I'll be in here for a couple of days.

And then I can start working on my bottles again! And my crafts! I'm so excited!
