On Top of Things. For five minutes


I forgot that I don't live with my mom anymore.
Which means that I need to know where important things are.
Like my Debit card. And bank statements.
And Reciepts and warranties of the washing machine and two laptops we just bought.
I thought I lost them.

So bought a file with dividers in them. One file. For many small, important things
It's green and from Walmart {my new favorite store and third home}.

But I forgot I don't live with my mom and didn't organize anything for a month.
For a month the empty file sat on the nightstand and stared at me.
It would have kept staring had Mr. FallingUp not shoved it into the drawer.

Then I realized my mom doesn't live with me.
And I cleaned out the drawers and gathered all the receipts and cards {gift cards too} and labelled everything. Now my file is full and happy. The end.

This was the proud moment of my day. My highlight. This is my life. My housewife life until I take my boards.
The end.

 One time my room was so messy the cleaning lady refused to clean it. 
My mother did not find it amusing.

I love that women are always left with filing away the important things!! Whenever my husband has something incredibly important...he makes sure to tell me it is important...proceeds to put it somewhere b/c he doesn't think I am responsible enough to keep it safe...and then blames me later when HE can't find it...lol. Finally...I put my foot down and I bought a large filing box where all the important things go.

make you appreciate your mom so much more. I know when I bought my house the first thing I did was give her all the documents and went along with it, like my mortgage, deed, insurance because I did not feel ready to take care of it.
I have owned the house for 5 years now.. she still has the papers. Maybe your organization will rub off on me!!
