Can't say what got me motivated- but I have spent the last two days editing a drawer in the filing cabinet. It was the one with all our financial records. One thing that helped was looking online to see if the information was available there. Then I could shred the paper. I also spent time requesting digital statements instead of a hard copies. Just so I don't think I have to print them all out now! That would be counter productive. I will add two garbage bags of shredded paper to the trash pick up this week. In the past I have put some shredded paper in the compost, but don't want to put too much ink in it.
I also started a stretch exercise class. It is for an hour two times a week and the third day they do line dancing. I definitely have a ways to go with getting in shape and learning to dance. But I must start somewhere.
Another change in our life is that G gets up at 5:30 AM each day so he can be on the road by 6 AM to beat the rush hour traffic. I get up with him (but usually have to sneak in a short nap during the day). I haven't told him that so will see if he reads my blog.
