I shall attack my mail and write down any appointments and due dates for bills on my new calendar. Also fill out any paperwork needed.

This past weekend I attacked my pantry. I cleaned out all outdated food and discarded, and packed up three bags of food to donate to the local food bank. My new pantry is much neater and cleaner. I also donated plates/cups/and plastic ware to the local Life Shelter for the homeless.

Attacked a huge pile of graded papers and recorded them so they could be returned to students. Working on testing at school so there are not a lot of hours for the nonessential. It was a 12 hour day but it was worth it!

Aargh! I haven't used this topic in far too long. Notice I'm being kind to myself and making this one for Mar-Apr. Today: impeccably organized bag for work. Only problem: I left a key folder on the dining room table where I was studying it. Not to worry; I've made it just fine so far without it.
After nearly a month of being away, daughter moving across the country, and big workload, "I'm so far behind, I think I'm first!" Not original with me; I spotted it a in co-worker's cubicle.
Bright idea: GET HELP. Why is it so hard to a) admit you need help and b) ask for it? I did both and hired Char Lady for three hours. This dear soul is a pleasure to work with, doesn't make me feel bad about my mess, does everything beyond thorough. :-) My chandelier is sparkling, the tops of the lightbulbs in my bathroom mirror have no dust on them. My goal is to simplify my home till I can manage it in spite of work schedule.
