Let me see, I know I've got it here somewhere.

Let me see, I know I've got it here somewhere.

I have to take a moment and laugh at myself.  It was one of those days recently when I was busy with a number of things.  Phone calls, family events, in and out with a client.  Finally, things are settling down late in the afternoon and I get asked for some help from my wife.

We are expecting roof repairs in a couple of weeks and we needed to go over the cost estimates.  Well, with two offices, mail and things sometimes get intermingled.  And with holiday decorations, gift boxes and family coming and going, we were just having a good time, until we needed information on the repair estimate.

I looked in my office stuff and may wife looked in hers.  As we recalled, we thought that I'd had it last.  No, I didn't file it with home repairs as we haven't yet started the project.  Hmm, let me think.  I know it was here.  Where did I put it?  We checked the incoming mail, magazines, and gift wrapping areas.  No luck.  I was beginning to feel like I was in the middle of Times Square!Times Square 

Did it get put with the recycling papers? No, not there.  Let's see, on the desk? No, not there.  Finally, there it is.  What's it doing with the utility bills?  Whew, well, at least we found it.

Now, where else does this show up in my life?  I'm really laughing now because I realize that regardless of how organized I feel, there is still a huge amount of organization I can still do! 

Ok, where is that file of receipts for last year's expenses.....Let me see, I know I've got it here somewhere.

Andrew ~ Oh my goodness, I didn't realize I sent a picture of MY desk, or were you meaning your desk?

Renee ~ I'm still laughing on this one.  I hadn't previously considered it an option.  Perhaps NOW I WILL!
