I'm Still Alive

Although if I don't quit running the shredder, my common wall neighbor will call the cops!  I shredded from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and I'm about two-thirds done.  I'm getting rid of two file cabinets, and these are really old records from back in my court reporting days.  That career ended over 20 years ago.  Time to get rid of them, but I had to shred because there were employee W-2s, etc. 

So far I have 11 huge garbage bags of shredded paper sitting in the garage.  Both cans are full.  The garbage truck comes at around 8:00 Thursday, so I'll just be standing at the garage door waiting for them.  I have to tell you, this feels so good!

No pictures today.  Sorry.  I don't think piles of tubs and boxes or bags of trash would be very interesting.

Funny thing - I keep finding projects that are about 99.9% complete, so I designated one tub to put those in.  My thought was those would be the first ones to get worked on in the other LA.  Well, one tub has turned into two.  What in the world was I thinking?  I'm a gal on a mission, though, so I will do my best to do those first.  Most of them anyway.  My only excuse is that I got bored with them and wanted to start something new.  I guess that's a widely accepted excuse among quilters, but it's my story and I'm sticking to it!

My back is screaming at me right now, so time to stretch out.  I did that on the floor yesterday, and Penny didn't quite know what to make of it.  She tried to lay next to me but then saw this humongous mound called Mommy, so it was more fun to get up on top!  It wasn't fun trying to get up off the floor, though.  I'm just glad no one was around with a video camera!
