Just realized I have to get the tax stuff ready for myself and for my mom. Her estate is so complicated, I just dread it. I go to my computer room, and instead of making real progress, I find myself organizing business cards from restaurants, doctors, shops. How stupid is that? but it is comforting. Also, my taxes may be messed up because I retired this year. I hope I paid enough, I do not want to have a penalty. I have so many little papers and I have to look at each one, decide to toss it, or save it, and then put it in a place where I can retrieve it if I am saving it. Otherwise, why save it?
This process is ripe for stress eating. Ripe for it. So, my goal for today, is when I get frustrated with my "organizing", go take a walk. I bought a pedometer and I am trying for the 10,000 steps a day. It is very motivating to have the feedback from the pedometer. I found a great one, you just put it in your pocket. Yesterday, I did 5000 steps.
