Daily Activities Include: filing, forwarded email

T. has been wanting me to forward him a lot of the email I receive from people he knows. Recently, he got R. to order him a toy from the Talking Friends store. It didn't ship ... and didn't ship, even tho the identical toy ordered by me for A. (which prompted T. to want one of his own *sigh*) shipped and arrived very quickly. Hmmm. R. sent them email, they looked into it and it is, in theory, now headed our way. T. asked R. to forward the email telling R. that -- and then without anyone else being involved, T. then forwarded that to both my email addresses.

Okay, so, then, learning is definitely occurring.

I put labels on files today. I've been doing this on and off since the Big Purge some months (a year?) ago, and I'm mostly there. This should help with keeping up with the filing, which honestly should not be hard to keep up with because we've eliminated so much paper from our lives that there just isn't that much left. I also purged some additional school paperwork that didn't really seem like we needed to keep it. It's hard to know what to keep, because my kids get way more paperwork than is typical so the usual rules are not obvious to translate. However, I've been trying to learn from other people's experience, and if keeping it just means you throw it all away 20 years later, I don't see any reason to keep it now. It would be different if wonderful progress were _not_ occurring and I wanted to be able to document that (and what I had been told had been tried so far).

I also created the 2014 tax year folder and separated the 2014 tax year items from the 2013 tax year items, so I am honestly running out of things to do other than sit my ass down in front of the PC and start selecting things in TurboTax. I keep telling myself, Self, every year this gets easier -- it is not the nightmare it once was, and besides, you don't actually need to finish, you just need to come up with some sort of estimate to put on the extension.

But Self is not buying it. Self is quailing in abject fear and terror. Self is being really ridiculous.
