I’ve been talking about finally getting my office clean since… well, since we moved in almost two years ago. On that day, we deposited boxes and boxes of stuff in the room that is my office. Just recently, we managed to open and unpack those boxes, so that now I have a floor (on which I can put more stuff!).
But the real work has yet to be done. My desk has several very tall piles of paper on it. Most of it, I’d say close to 95% of it, is just stuff that needs to be filed. Paid bills, instruction manuals, receipts of relative importance. But mixed in there every once in a while I am sure to find a gem of a lost document. Still, I’ve probably gone a year without that document, so it can’t be that important.
What’s pushing me now is the arrival of tax time. I don’t know for sure, but I need to find out if there are any relevant tax documents in these piles. I think there might be. Last year at tax time, I got away with it by making a list of the documents I thought we needed, then finding those. This year I feel like I should find all the documents first.
So it begins with…Aidan’s Nebraska Immunization Record. The last record in there is September 17, 2003. I’m pretty sure he’s had a shot since then.
