Another stack of paper…

Last week I was only half way through this tackle and so I decided to save the rest of it for this week. Well the good news is that I finished the tackle and I have the after photo. The bad news is that the before picture is on my computer in Italy!

Susan and I switched computers while she is away (I needed hers to manage her work) and I tried to move all the stuff I would need over here. But I forgot to move my photos! So all my recent shots are in Italy!

So you will need to use your imagination. Picture a big stack of unsorted papers and mail. Got it? Okay, now here is the after shot:


Other than that tackle, I am trying to answer hundreds of emails and tend to an enormous to do list.

(For those of you wondering, Susan has safely arrived in Italy. I am hoping she will be sending us a picture for Wordless Wednesday this week!)

Link up and show off your tackle. :)

    The place was such a mess last week that I just couldn’t tackle a thing. So last week my task for “Tackle It Tuesday”, was to actually sit back and do nothing. :-) It was wonderful.

    I hate sorting through mails and paperwork. I really believe it takes longer than cleaning the house because you have to read through things to make sure you’re not throwing away something of importance.

    Oooh – nice clean table top! My favourite sort of tackle is clearing paper – I LOVE throwing paper away. I suppose that’s why it’s my speciality, isn’t it? LOL

    Glad Susan made it to Italy safely.

    :O it’s Tuesday already?

    Well I will be posting my TIT later today – I have spent the day in the car, traveling from store to store, tomorrow my Aubrey is going to be 8 – I am in shock!!!

    So we are having a HUGE party on Sat – actually 2, one from 12 to 3 (for the adults) and one from 4 to Sunday at 11 (for 13 of her closest friends)

    Am I nuts?
