You haven't seen much of me online today because I've been busy with real life again. I'm simultaneously working on three related projects . I already mentioned I'm trying to make the Paso Robles home office functional. That means taking everything off the desk and from the drawers to sort and put back in some kind of reasonable order where what I need is accessable.
That became even more urgent when I actually started and completed another project – getting my old printer from Templeton connected here and testing it. I am very tired of running to Templeton everytime our Realtor wants us to print and sign another form and fax it back to her. I should save a lot of gasoline this way. Best of all, when I tested the printer, the toner was still working after four years in the closet. But to install the printer, I had to put it on a bookcase next to the computer CPU, so I can reach it, and there was already stuff there I had to remove to add to the sort project.
The main sort project is taking place on the dining room table, which is large, and where I already have two other sort projects in process, both of which are related. There's the paperwork (bills, receipts, unopened mail, etc., and then there are the damaged books I have to record so I can give them away and write them off. On top of what's on the table, I've added boxes to sort what is on or inside the desk, as well as what's inside all the stationery boxes from our parents' estates that are stacked around the rest of the office.
Lastly, I have to start filling more boxes for the thrift shops and other places I take books. Some of the reference books and textbooks go to the homeless shelter. I'll also see if they might need anything else I want to get rid of. Hubby can always take it where it needs to go, even after my surgery, so we can have more of the living room and dining room back. Sure glad I'm not having to host a Thanksgiving dinner this year.
