It's been years since I needed to file because my income is so low. Not that I'm complaining!
Monday the library was closed, so I went to get some money out at the ATM, took the bus to Target, bought a 50 gallon bin with lid, and had to take two buses to get it to the church. Turned off the alarm, got the shed key, and spent about 45 minutes putting the contents of the last 3 cardboard boxes in my storage into the bin. I even found the zippered pouch that has my birth certificate in it--now I can apply for Medi-Cal!
Then I went to the office, used my netbook to keep up with my email, and visited my favorite sites. While doing that, I heard a noise, but nothing came of it, so I thought it was nothing. Finally, I went to the sanctuary to add a new song to the database in the sound booth--and set off the alarm! How did that happen? I called Pastor and left a voicemail; he didn't respond. I shut the alarm off, put the song into the computer, and left, setting the alarm again. The alarm doesn't reach the offices, and I don't know if it turns itself back on if it doesn't detect movement within a specified time, or if it can be turned on or off remotely--Pastor knew I was there--I have to wait until Thursday to ask him.
My next goal for this year is each month for the next 3 months I will buy an underbed box and organize stuff in the closet, my bedside table, dresser and 3 drawer tower. After that, I'll buy another file box and move the inactive files from my current file box--Tripod's old vet records, tax files, clippings, etc.-- so there'll be more room in my active file
box. Then get a new 3" binder--friends gave me two already--and I can put my newsletters like Cat Watch, Cat Nip, and AARP Bulletin in those, and bundle up my magazines. Get everything neat and tidy. That should take until June. After that, I don't know if I'll have any projects, just have to wait and see.
