Can you believe it is already time for Follow Through Friday again? I’m not sure why but this week went by in a flash over here. I’ve been diligently(mostly) working on my to-do list all week but today is when I switch things up and focus on projects that have fallen into the procrastination abyss. As usual, I’m keeping my list narrowed to 3 items so I can have a glimmer of hope that they might all get finished once and for all. Here are the three items that made the cut for today:
Clearing out my e-mail! I find it easier to let all my e-mail come to the same address and let the “deal” ones say from things such as My points pile up in there. I usually have no problem going back through and clearing it all out once in a while and prior to yahoo making “improvements”, I could see at a glance when e-mail from my contacts arrived. I do not know if it is user error or they took it away but this no longer happens. I am admittedly a bit frustrated with the “new and improved” e-mail and so have been ignoring it a bit and so this happened:
I plan to spend some time today sorting all these unread e-mails (I don’t think I’ve missed anything important but I need to make sure. I also plan to look for a tutorial on how this “new” e-mail works or decide once and for all to just switch all my personal stuff over to Gmail which I have started but I never did…wait for it…follow through!
Clearing off the desktop (the one the computer is sitting on, not the computer desktop), my dresser, and the kitchen table. I may do more surfaces as well but I’m picking those three for today. I do not believe there is even one flat surface in our home that is not covered with some sort of clutter. Mostly paper clutter which means I may find a “wealth” of future Follow Through Friday projects as I work on this task. I certainly hope this is not the case. Hopefully, I’ll only find quick “do it now” things which just “accidentally” turned into “do it later” piles.
Paperwork and filing. Yuck. Just Yuck. However, my husband is home working on this stuff this morning and so by default, guess who else is working on it all? I need to do some filing so that next time I can find these numbers he keeps asking me about a little quicker. The “do it now” personality does not mix well with the “can I please finish what I’m doing first” personality. It may be a very long morning indeed around here.
