Post #200!

I finally reached 200 posts (after nearly five years). Needless to say, I haven't been very consistent.

Charlie and I have gotten a lot done the past few days. (I've already posted about my treadmill, but I'll mention it again!) We've worked in my office twice, trying to get it cleaned up. Charlie's great about organizing closets and drawers and all that, so she's invaluable. Now I need to go work on my rolodex (after I work out) and organize all the business cards that are scattered everywhere. I brought a huge pile of crap home.

We went to the Post Office at 2:00 a.m. last night and finally mailed the bills (then received two more in the mail today). Umm . . . how's the new budget going? Not so well.

We had Shari over today. I needed to call Ron, but I didn't get it done. I have to do that tomorrow, and write to the high school boyfriend and say Happy New Year before we head to Adrian's Pimps and Hos party.

No, I didn't get any fanfic written during this break, but I'm still burned out from NaNo. Finishing my damn WIPs is going to be my #1 New Year's Resolution!!!

We'll have the fanfic journal ready for you before 2006! Hopefully that will help you with the resolution to finish those WIPs. I'm sorry for fucking up with your login, and I completely understand if you never trust me again.

What harm could you possibly do with my login? I've seen you guys working on people's journals, and I completely trust you.

The journal looks wonderful, and now I need to decide what stuff to load in it. I've come over to the decision to link stuff (instead of posting directly to communities), and this is the way to do it.

Thank you, darling!

Wow, you have been so determined lately to get in shape.

Every time I read about it I think that's the way to get it done.

I must, must get my ass up and work out.

All the little crap I need to do around the house is bugging me lately also.

You should take Charlie out and buy her dinner.

Have a wonderful day.

Yes, I am determined, and for once I'm not stressed about it. And even though I've gained weight, I haven't seemed to lose any of my fitness level. (The other night I worked out for nearly an hour and a half.) I have a feeling I'll work up to a couple hours of running pretty easily, and I love that feeling.

I have a lot of stuff around the house to do, too, but nothing's ever perfect.

I'm taking Charlie to a Pimps and Hos party, and hopefully she'll have a good time. Can't wait to see our friends!!!!

I'm all for that! Great idea, Koi! (grin)

You know, I have so much stuff at work that I need to clear out and get organized. I need to start exercising. So, you're inspiring me to get some of that stuff done. I need all the inspiration I can get! :)

We've been trying to clean out some around here for months. Not sure if it's really working or not! (grin) But it's a big goal for the New Year!

We've just got so much crap, I'm afraid. And I'm a terrible keeper. (Of everything.) Marilyn's only keeping vice is magazines, which is nothing compared to my own!

We're both so excited about that new treadmill, though! A great way to work out without needing to be out in the constant rain and cold. (I've had an on-going coldfluallergy thing since September! Frustrating.)

I always intend to clean up - I've got so much crap around the house it's not even funny. Back when I used to move every few years I kept everything to a minimum, but when Dave got out of the army and we settled that sort of changed. I'm terrible with magazines, too. I've got a large storage container full of them.

I can't work out at home. I've tried, but it just doesn't work for me. I always get bored, distracted, whatever, or see something that needs to be dusted and go do that. But then, I'm not that great at getting to the gym either so something's gonna have to change. Don't know why I don't go - there is this gorgeous 6'5" blond man who is built like a Greek god that goes about the same time I do. Damn, would I love to hit that! ;) Not too likely in my present shape, though...

If you could see the piles in my office, you'd wonder how I ever get anything done.

I think all of 2003's filing is in a pile behind my desk. I can't fit anything in the file cabinets next to my desk, because they're full, and I can't move that stuff down to the historical files, because they're too full of crap.

And then there's a box of filing under my credenza that (I think) is 2004.

And then my stupid table is covered with crap from 2005, and the two portable file boxes I keep all my parade stuff in are completely covered by all the board research I've done this year, a million different versions of the bylaws, etc.

On my desk I have probably thirty different file folders that really constitute everything I'm working on now.

And under my (beautiful, brand new) computer . . .

So now I'm nervous about going in tomorrow and throwing anything out, since I read Brian's superstitious post. I like to think I'm not superstitious, but . . .

There are people who think I'm the most organized person in the world. But now I'm wondering how much I could really accomplish if I'd just get organized.

I think the effort itself is a reward, so I'm determined to try!

Wow - sounds like a lot of stuff! I'm terrible with filing, but then I think most people are. It's not a fun job. I have piles of stuff everywhere, even some under my desk on top of my computer where no one can see it, lol. I have come to the realization that I am a disorganized mess. I can keep it together for a little while, but sooner or later it always falls apart. My sister is the same way. She told me once that she's realized she's never going to change. Well, I'm determined to, damnit! What I really need to do is go in to the office on a weekend when the phone won't be ringing and nobody will want anything and just get to work. But, damn, that's my weekend... Sigh.
31st-Dec-2005 09:39 pm (UTC) - Congrats!
Tossing confetti!

How exciting! We're finally getting to be a bit better about blogging.

I don't know what we'd have done without LJ during NaNo!

We'll do more work in your office soon...

Oh, I'm so glad to be blogging. It's one of the highlights of 2005 for me. And thanks for your help in the office. I really, really appreciate it.
