So several weeks ago, I bought a file rack with the intention of our being able to use it to file away the assorted bits of financial and other paperwork that has filled a large tub on the counter in our kitchen. (When I say large, I mean bigger than a cubic foot.) And while Gretchen went out shopping with Katie, I sat filing papers away while Julie watched Wow, Wow, Wubbzy.
By the time Gretchen and Katie got home, I had made a substantial dent in the paperwork. Gretchen finished it off while I played Go Fish with Katie using the new cards she'd gotten while shopping.
And one project is done.
