But it's been that kind of day. I went to find a file in my newly moved file cabinet but couldn't get the top drawer closed nor the bottom one open - not even with several rapid (and frustrated) whacks with a big hammer. But I noticed that I could see the bottom drawer files way in the back when the top drawer was opened all the way and of course I decided to yank all the bottom files out through that narrow opening and laugh at the gods making my day so hard. And ha-ha, I did get the files dragged out, but hopefully the blood dripped on them from my stupid arm that got caught in the cabinet won't hurt them much. Not as much as it hurt me.

I am a sucker for articles on improving one's creativity and time management. I keep hoping that they will help with the inventories. I was convinced by one blogger that all could be vastly improved if I used the Goggle calendar to schedule my life. Apparently a pop-up appears on the computer desktop when something is due alerting the user to send off the proposal, pay the bill or enter the show. Since I spent close to four or five hours trying to figure out that damn calender before I started trying to erase everything, not only did I not improve my productivity but now every Wednesday at 4pm I get a pop-up message alerting me to clean the catbox.

In a conversation with my friend Jane, we figured out that we all spend the first 50 years of life collecting necessary 'stuff'. Stuff for that camping trip to Everest, canning 70 quarts of tomatoes for winter or building (and stocking) a fall-out shelter in the back yard. Then in the second 50 years of our lives we realize that 90% of those plans and boxes of stuff will never happen so we can start to pluck them out from the things we really want to do and haul 'em away.

Today's inventory is of the books still available for sale and need to be listed on Etsy and Flickr. Writing this blog came first in the alphabet (yes, I organized my daily to do list alphabetically. Doesn't everyone?) so I will post a few of my newest books here... if I can get the little pictures to go where I want them to go. (oh, and the inventory of Control Issues came before writing this blog...in case you were wondering).
