I couldn't believe that although I had planned to start weeding through our yearly tax papers saved as the first 7 year period passed, somehow I never got around to it. Life got busy, we had a toddler and new baby by that time. Two years later we had our youngest and I can't even begin to imagine why I didn't think to start going through those tax papers again.
When the kids were little I used to work part time while they were in school and be home to meet the school bus. And then I discovered the need to write...and I have NO idea where all those years in between went. Aside from kids going through those teen years, driver's licenses, accidents, and just life in general.
Soooo, here I was the other day chatting with our darling daughter--and missing our grandbabies to absolute pieces--and I mentioned that I was thinking I should order a shredder from Amazon and start shredding tax papers. Our daughter thought that was the funniest thing she'd ever heard. When she stopped laughing, she asked, "You mean the 41 years' worth in the upstairs closet?"
Well that had me getting my gumption up and telling our darling smarty-pants, yes since I have forced time to do it, being under the stay-at-home order from our governor, I was going to order the shredder! I could hear her chuckling. She doesn't think I'll do it...but it's on the task list for tomorrow!
Today's tasks are working on a couple of projects: Writing Blogs for GLIAS, keeping tabs on the e-books that I'm in the process of transferring to Kindle Unlimited so that all of my e-books will be in one place. Finally! But that may take another 2 weeks until that happens. Until then, all of my e-books are specially priced at 99 cents. C.H.'s Amazon Author Page
Isn't our new shredder pretty???
Soooo....way back under the eaves at the front of the house, we have this closet space where I put the Christmas ornaments, and a bunch of other stuff I can't live without. If you look past the Christmasy-boxes, there are some white priority envelopes. Those envelopes and from there back are seriously 41 years of taxes waiting for me to go through them, saving what's important, and shredding the rest. Well okay, except for the past 7 years.
I'm giving away 3 digital books...1 e-book (Reader's Choice) to 3 different winners!
