29 days of giving - day 19 - organization
The piles and stacks are high and deep in my office. The dust bunnies have become moose and then warped into elephants. Yet here I am, oblivious to it all organizing someone else's meeting.
I organize well inside of my head and electronically. I can lay my fingers on virtually, no pun intended, anything I've written, read, or cared enough about to keep. Paper thiings, well, not so much. I recently sent a Christmas card to a friend, not because I'm early, but because I wanted to mail a real card and it was the first one I could actually find where the card and envelope matched (sort of) and no one got hurt putting the card in the envelope. Hey, it's a real problem sometimes.
Now on the computer, I'm a different person. Not only am I organized, capable of multi-tasking, I'm also tall, thin, about fifteen years younger than I look, and smart as a whip (then again, spell check works on most of the programs I use - it makes a difference). I finish projects quickly and easily ... not so much the case as I look around the house and see things that might have been finished long ago.
