As I sat looking at my kitchen counter yesterday, I was thinking there must be a better way to "tame" my papers!! If so, I guess I don't know what it is :)
Cathy is a homemaker/wife and also mom to a third grade son with special needs, a teenage daughter and a stepmom to an adult son. Originally from the East Coast, Cathy has lived in the Midwest for over a decade. She hopes to use her life experiences to help and inspire others and to put a smile on their face if only just for a moment!
My bills are always paid on time and permission slips and such are always signed and sent back to school. I really had high hopes that I could get the papers on the counter organized. I had my papers spread all over the kitchen table in several small piles. Instead, before I knew it, it got to be about dinner time and my husband said something like, "when are you planning on putting all these papers away??"
Once again, I put all my papers back on the kitchen counter. What I've found, is that I really need just a few hours to sort through everything. With the ending of the school year and planning summer activities, finding those few couple of "free" hours has been a bit challenging!! I'll sit down and start and then the phone will ring or I'll remember I need to do a load of laundry.
This morning, I have taken the time to slow down, drink a cup of coffee and start sorting. Wish me luck!
