Yup, I am cold.
But, I haven't been outside, but I have been in the basement to store some old files. Old files that we are not supposed to throw away for at least seven years, but now have filled up my filing cabinet so that I don't have room for the new stuff.
It is the first attempt I have made to take care of year end stuff. Mainly, I am trying to get motivated to compile everything needed for the dreaded taxes. But so far, cleaning out the filing cabinet is as far as I have gotten.
And since under the basement stairs is a good place to store such piles of papers, I was under there digging out my bin of papers. The floor was cold, the basement cold, and my bin was jam packed. This lead to searching for a file box, which incidentally was full of stuff that wasn't files.
So, I had to empty it, find places for that junk, and then put the new old files in the file box. I was down there for quite a while, in only my fuzzy socks, leggings, and a sweatshirt. Not enough for being in the unheated basement with temps in the teens.
By the time I was done, the cold had seeped through my whole body. And now I just can't warm up. (note to self, next time, wear slippers)
Time for TEA! I'll go put the kettle on, but I wonder, have you started the dreaded task of getting ready for year end and taxes?
The pressure will be on soon enough, so best to get a head start, I believe. Now, if I could compile all the rest, THAT would be something!
And of course, before I finished writing this, we discovered the other reason I am cold. Our boiler is not working, so another stressful thing.
No heat, no hot water.
So, have you started prepping for year end and taxes?
Stay warm my friends!
