Getting my ducks in a row

I’ve taken this week off of work, but am staying in town to work on stuff that I don’t usually get around to like sorting/shredding/scanning/tossing/saving paperwork, cleaning, running some errands I keep putting off, and of course the occasional nap.

I have a lot of paperwork that I need to scan, shred, save, and/or toss.  Some of it is Dept of State stuff, some of it is other personal paperwork, and some of it is just odds and ends.  In this case, I’m not going to be separated from it for too long, but it’s good to have electronic copies of stuff just in case and I also want to get rid of what I can so that it’s not moved unnecessarily and so I don’t have to deal with it again when I get to Canada.

It’s also time to do some cleaning I’ve been putting off, like those rolls of Christmas wrapping paper that are still in the dining room, and some yardwork like raking the yard and getting rid of some of the weeds that are popping up.

There are also administrative things that I need to do to get ready to leave post.  I still have time to do most of those things, but there are a few that I can get started on soon so I’m trying to form a plan of attack for that stuff.

Of course, there will probably be things left undone when I finally leave post and some of the paperwork will have to wait until Canada (or later) to be dealt with, but at least I can get some of it done before I leave.
