This is part of my first twelve days of January representing the months of the year. I am clarifying this because I received surprising texts after writing February Cleansing.
The texts went as follows:
You know it’s January, right? Just read your blog.
It was followed by
Oh never mind. I missed the one that explained today was about February. I get it now.
This was both comical and frightening as both the sender and I are somewhat concerned about getting Alzheimer’s disease. Anyway, today is the third, so it represents March.
I have had quite a productive day. It started with getting the others out of the house for the first time in over a week. Truthfully, they have each left the house on more than one occasion, but not for an entire day at the same time. Today everyone went to school and work and I remained at home with the beast in peace.
I received several requests from others and was able to complete the tasks quickly and efficiently. I amazed myself with my productivity regarding phone calls, texts, e-mails, paperwork, and even running some errands. I was completely on the ball!
We recently received a wonderful present from my in-laws. They were ready to get rid of a filing cabinet and I eagerly accepted the chance to relocate it to my house. My human was not so certain we had the room for it, but now that the many piles and boxes of paperwork are organized in nice little files in the cabinet, he is much more enthusiastic.
It is really quite large and even has room for all the millions of photo albums and offspring artwork. It is like a Christmas miracle. The Christmas part of it being I created the filing system over the break, we had the cabinet for over a month before then but it just had piles of stuff in it until recently.
I was able to take paperwork and receipts, etc. and put them in the proper files the minute I walked through the door. I was able to find the phone number for a company I wanted to call without any trouble. Why? It was in the file!
Just now, as I was writing this post, the repairman came to check on our boiler. It’s leaking and he put something in it that is hopefully going to fill in the pinpoint holes without having to replace the entire unit. I am staying positive that the solution will work. It smelled good, like mulled wine. I took that as a merry sign indeed.
Guess what I did when he left? I took the service order paperwork and put it in the file for the company. See how organized I am? I should pat myself on the back. 🙂
I am definitely excited about March. It is going to be an efficient, productive, wonderful month.
I do admit that I had intended on getting to work on my second book, but I somehow didn’t get to that. Oh well, the day is still somewhat young. It is only 3:00, there is still time.
How is your March going to be?
