Boring Weekend

For once, a boring weekend. Some weekends, I'm travelling. Some weekends, I have events to attend. Some weekends, I have piles of stuff to do at home. Some weekends, thankfully, are boring, and I jealously guard them and enforce their dreariness.

Things got off to a good start on Friday with another snow storm that inspired me to work from home. Not leaving the house at all on Friday made Saturday extra special, so I didn't get out of bed until noon on Saturday. We did some babysitting for the nephews on Saturday night, which inspired some rushing around, but that was OK. On Sunday, the biggest news was that I got some shredding done to loosen things up in my filing cabinet. Shredding! Yippee.

Another thing I did to empty some space was to clean up my tax records. My standard operating procedure when I finish filing my taxes is to gather everything up that I used to prepare them, put it all in a folder, and put that folder in my files. This sounds like a good plan except it includes all kinds of stuff I will never ever need, like envelopes, instructions books, extra copies of forms, etcetera. Just pulling all the old instruction books saved me about four inches of drawer space.

If me posting in pride about three inches of drawer space doesn't impress upon you the ponderous nature of my weekend, I don't know what will.
