This morning I put on deodorant!  High five for small achievements!

The last few days as I’ve rested, I’ve been doing a huge organization of my digital life.  Cleaning out thousands of e-mails (anyone else an e-mail hoarder?), organizing all of my photos off my phone, and doing some things around the home.  I never set aside time to do these things so I am glad I’ve been able to clean out some cobwebs and start the week off fresh.

On the to-do-list today is:

  1. Find room for the rest of my hurricane supplies in the closet (fingers crossed Hurricane Beryl dissipates)
  2. Grocery shopping
  3. Laundry
  4. Clean the bathrooms
  5. Clean out the trunk of the car

I realize, however, that this is quite ambitious seeing it is already 12:00pm.

This week I am back to work full time (minus my doctor’s appointment) and am encouraging my brain to get behind this grand idea I had.  Because I am solo in my carpool all 5 days, I thought I would get to work 30 minutes early and spend that time trying to clean out this monster of a filing cabinet in my office.  This cabinet serves no function except to 1) Hold 5 year old files that I inherited from my predecessor 2) Take up valuable real estate and 3) Be an eye sore.  Sometimes I am envious of people’s short commutes.  I realize it seems silly to have to plan this time to clean out a filing cabinet but when I work over an hour away from home, I have to be wise with my time.

I’ll leave you with a few photos I found on my phone during my organization spree:

    Big goals for the week and for today! It feels good to tackle these things. Even if you don’t get it all done, it’s better than when you started.
