and you are not me, the lengths that I will go to
So about 11 this morning I took a half-dozen papers off the 8" stack to my left, and resolved to Do The Right Thing with each one.

One was a pension plan statement. I spent ten minutes on the phone wrestling with Compaq's HR to get them to change my address (so they can get mailed to me instead of Erik, what a nifty idea). Next was a small pile of cat paperwork. I generated three envelopes and a check, and rearranged the binder of current cat paperwork to actually reflect the cats currently in the house (shocking). Next was a brokerage statement. I sat down at the fine computer to update Quicken....

....and the next thing I knew, it was about 15:50. I was cold, stiff, had failed to eat lunch or drink any water, and the four Quicken accounts representing the pension plan (snort), IRA #1, IRA #2, and the general portfolio had all been updated so they matched, to the penny, the actual balances and transactions from each institution's web site.

Focus, I got. If I had any direction, I'd be dangerous.

Current Mood: tiredtired

In my case, I think I'd prefer
  cat paperwork > /dev/null

OK, i'm a geek. I admit it. But I'm thrilled you're feeling productive. *kiss*

Wow. Organized. I commend and salute you.

And hope you're well hydrated and fed today.
Thanks for reminding me I haven't had anything to drink all day.

(Drat, no REM at work. le sigh.)
