In the Blogging A to Z Challenge, the letter for the day is O. I have to admit that yesterday afternoon I was straining my brain to come up with an “O” word. Then like the frisbee that keeps getting closer and closer…It Hit Me!
Organize. Now to some people, I won’t name names but…Organize is a dirty word both figuratively and literally. But then I remembered “K” and my Kickstart.
I didn’t forget about it, but I’ve been trying to figure out how to add it into the Challenge. I’ve been loving the Challenge, but I want to try to keep the flavor of BCDC in tact as I progress through it. I think I’ve been doing Ok so far. I promised an update on Kickstart and I’m taking responsibility for that.
I actually started last Thursday after posting about it. I promised photos when possible.
This disastrous pile of “stuff” ( to be as polite about this as Possible…)
Turned into this far more orderly collection…
Far neater and awaiting a permanent home, but I know what is where and can find things if I need to. The box of books is destined for my yard sale in June and yes the floor could use a vacuum but you see, I couldn’t even Tell that before! My shredder receptacle is Full because of everything I sorted through and got rid of.
This past weekend was filled with birthday celebrations so I didn’t get to my project per day which is why I said I wouldn’t start it until Monday. Monday’s project was full of paperwork. Filling out and copying lots of insurance-y type forms and getting them mailed out. (Then remembering in the middle of the night that I forgot to put Attn: Person to Whose Attention It Goes on the front of one of the envelopes! 😦 That’s Ok, it’s only the copy I’m sending to Ralph’s former employers. I can call to see it was received by the right person and resend the copies if necessary. (Luckily I made an extra copy!)
Today is Haircut day (Hallelujah!!) and then more paperwork. But I’m accomplishing something every day. I try to have a plan at least a day ahead which is good. Then I can feel very dejected if I don’t get it done. I should be charting on my calender what I do each day so if I feel like I haven’t done anything, I won’t forget what I’ve done. Oh…I thought that’s what BCDC was for… 😉
As I type this, I look at my desk and think that perhaps It should be the next recipient of Operation Kickstart attention. Hey! There we go…Another “O”!
I’ll keep you up to date on my progress as I’ve said.
AND Monday was free iced coffee day! What could be bad about that?!
Happy Tuesday! Let’s see what “P” culiar things I can come up with Tomorrow!!
