Currently doing a Major MISSION ORGANIZATION style Project on my study and bedroom (in that order). Started right before Labor Day weekend. Three garbage bags of old papers, articles, “whoknowswhyikeptthis” stuff thrown out so far. Just two more file drawers to do in my study and then to reorganise and sort thru magazines (gardening and knitting and opera mags). Then its on to the bedroom. Already reorganized furniture, etc now just have to sort thru clothes and throw out, etc. (this is the hardest which is why its last).
Then, now that its cooler, will have the basement to do – 8 file drawers to sort thru – and then yarn to inventory (actually hope to put the yarn in the soon to be empty file drawers ) and then boxes and boxes of paperbacks and old vhs tapes (yes, will probably throw most of them away) but the books, probably not. (i love books and some of these are outofprint british mysteries collected thru the years).
and then i should be truly organized and settled in – after a year i guess its not too bad.
(of course, then I want to catalog my scores, cds, dvds, cassettes of met operas, books, magazines… but those are ongoing projects).
Thank goodness for the US Open this past week and last weekend – it has helped with the tedium of sorting etc helping keep my right brain occupied so i dont question every piece of paper and let my left brain throw out much more than i would have without the distraction, uhm, focus.
For the record, LOVED Agassi’s matches including his last comments. Watched most of the quarter finals and all of the semi finals – first time seeing most of these players as haven’t followed US Open much in the past years. Enjoyed all of the games – including the Federer/Blake match (WHAT a fight Blake put up) and the Roddick matches. As for the women, first time I have seen Sharapova play – boy, I would be annoyed with all that grunting and shouting on every point – and so many of the women looked really good – Jankovic and Golovin for one. Was sorry for Mauresmo.
My pick for tonight (playing now) is Henin-Hardenne (really admire her and think she is the better player) and Roddick tomorrow (although its going to be a VERY CLOSE match).
ok. off to finish those two file drawers.
