Does this mean I have to wear pantyhose now?

Anybody who knows me well has heard the abysmal whining about mass-cleaning due to the dumpster rental. Wet stuff in the basement was one thing, but since the dumpster was ginormous, we got to muck out the rest of the house, too.

 Oh. Yay.

Anyway, my den/office got torn to pieces, and the opportunity arose to get rid of the WAY ginormous corner beast of a desk and streamline to a little glass and metal jobbie. The trip to Staples to get to the desk also yielded a big, black lateral filing cabinet because we’ve outgrown the current one.

After assembling the pretty little streamlined desk, we then plunked our 6-year-old dinosaur of a computer on it, with much eye rolling when the prehistoric monitor took up 80% of the desk’s surface.  So…Best Buy here we come. (Said ancient dinosaur had also been doing the hourglass screen malfunction for about 3 months and the blue screen of death half a dozen times a day for….oh, two years now?).

 So I’m sitting here with our shiny new computer on our shiny new desk wishing yet again I knew all my passwords to everything.

 Oh, and I have my back turned to the mountain of paper madness behind me. The new lateral file isn’t coming until tomorrow. One dropped match and all my filing woes…and housekeeping woes…would be over. :lmao:

 My To-Do list for today:

 1.  FLEs for Kiss Me Deadly

2.  Try to remember the password for FTP manager, at least.

3.  Call Dumpster Depot so they will come and take that :censor: dumpster out of here and let me get on with my life.

    I hear you about the dropped match… I’m drowning in a sea of clutter. It’s tempting, very, very tempting. :angel:
