I didn't get my debit card back in my wallet last week when I made my second seed order. I noticed it was missing last night when I went to place my third seed order. It scared me quite a bit at first and then I realized there was no way I had taken it out of the house. I completely dumped out my purse and went through everything. It was not there, although I did have $1.37 in change at the bottom that I put in the coin jar.
So I ended up organizing my desk, mostly. It had gotten ridiculous with papers that needed to be filed, shredded, or recycled. It's still a little cluttered, but ten times better. I did not find my debit card on my desk, but I did find a $5 bill and then about a half an hour later a $50 bill. The $5 was just loose, but the $50 was in an envelope system that was battered and I had replaced, but not thrown out. It was in the restaurant envelope, if anyone was curious.
I am glad I decided last minute to check all the envelopes. I was thrilled. I took that $55 and added it to the Beef Envelope, so there is now $120 in there. I can't believe I almost threw that $50 away. If it wasn't for that little voice that said check it, check it, check it, I would have.
Finally I cleaned out underneath my desk. It wasn't bad, just a few papers that had slipped between the wall and my desk and ended up on the floor. It was not there, either. So then I picked up my foot board. All of my height is in my back so in order to be comfortable in a computer chair, DH made me a two foot long by one foot wide foot board at the right height for me to be comfortable. And that is where it was. It had slipped down the back of the desk and wiggled its way under there.
I was so relieved to have found it. Tomorrow I will work on my desk some more, but tonight I need to shred papers. I don't want to build up again like I did and have to do a massive shred fest like I did a couple years ago. I've been generally good at staying on top of that, but when you pull muscles in your back, you don't worry about your paper pile getting larger. You do the bare minimum until you can function again. Which is about where I am now.
I am feeling the bug to organize, to clean, and to work out in the garden. We have had lovely sunny days without ran in the middle 40's. It would be perfect weather to go out and pull the corn stalks and the dead bean vines and get the posts dug out. We are totally revamping the garden and everything has to be cleared away so we can build the new beds. I don't want the growing season to get away from me. I think it would be good to get outside and move my body and it would be good for DS, as well. He's feeling quite the large amount of cabin fever right now. Being outside does help mitigate that.
