Rain and More Rain

Benjamin is tired of the rain. It is a cold rain and he is getting over an ear infection so he couldn't go out and play in it. We did have a short reprieve during the day and he got to get out for a few minutes., not long enough for him.

It started raining here Friday night and rained most of the day today.  It is now 1 am and it is raining even harder.  Twice now I have had to go out and drain the pool. We have flooding in the state and I have heard of some folks losing power but we haven't had any major issues here.  I went out for milk and there is no flooding in our town.  Thankfully, we do not live in an area that floods.

Because of the weather I have not had any motivation to work in my bathroom.  Instead I decided it was time to clean my desk.  Yes, it is bad.  I don't think that Pooky Bear wanted me to clean today.

That is about as clean as it will ever get.....and it won't last long.

Some days paperwork overwhelmes me.  All the paperwork for our family and my mom comes through that desk.  I try to immediately throw out junk mail.  Sometimes I have been known to throw out non-junk mail, oops.

There was a time when I looked for the best way to deal with paperwork.  After many different systems I have given up.  I find that every so often I just have to do a purge.  I sit with a trash can on one side and a box for filing on the other.  If I have waited long enough then many of the papers have become obsolete and get to go into the trash! I guess that it would make more sense to file things right away, I just don't have that discipline.

If you have a desk, how does your desk area look? Don't even get me started on the van, that is next for cleaning.

Hmmm, I can hear the rain outside, it is raining harder now than it has all weekend.  I hope that everyone in SC is safe and dry tonight.


  1. Yeah, don't get me started on the fact that even if my desk is totally clean, it's still cluttered!

  2. You don't even want to know how bad my desk area is. It's spilled over to the kitchen table and even the floor in areas. I need to shred, file, and purge. I've lost important documents because of the falling stack.
