Rainy day organizing ..........

I have spent the last two days going through files and papers. The drawers of my file cabinets were so crammed full, nothing would go in or out of them. I had piles of papers that needed to be filed. It would have been impossible to find a specific paper if I had needed it.
But now, look at these neat, organized files. I bet it would take me only a few seconds to put my hands on any paper I needed. All five drawers are that organized as well as a large drawer in the computer desk.
I have two big boxes of paper to get rid of - one to toss and one to either burn or shred. By the time I finished a little while ago, I was beginning to feel like it would be easier to toss it all and worry about the consequences later. But it is done - Hooray! Now if it would only stay like that.
We have had two days of rain - no ice or snow for us thank goodness. It's 55 outside right now, and they are actually calling for thunderstorms this afternoon.
I take Mazie Grace back to the vet tomorrow afternoon. Her incision does not look like it's healing as fast as it should and it's still puffy. It doesn't seem to bother her and doesn't look infected, so I'm hoping it is OK. I'm still keeping her inside.

Just finished reading The Lucky One and it was one of those "feel good" books...easy read...with just a tad of suspense to it. I enjoyed it since I was reading with one eye and watching the Australian Open with the other. Tricky...but you need an easy book to do that! :-)

And the file drawers look great. Neater than mine for sure.

I'll have to add that to my list of books to read. I'm trying to take a break from reading to get some other work done, but I'm sure I'll have my nose in a book before the week is over.

My files are in disarray! You are encouraging me to do some organizing of my own while we are having our stretch of really bad weather.

Looking at your pictures gives me motivation! My husband and I spent about 6 hours two weekends ago going through piles and piles of papers that we needed to file and shredding stuff we no longer needed... now they're still in piles, but at least they're organized! We still need to make that last little step into the actual folders! :) It does feel good to have it all neat and orderly!
