Okay. I've admitted to OCD, anal retentiveness, and being a nut in general.
But here's a little secret. I have a paper problem. *sigh* It's true.
I have a love/hate relationship with the stuff. Paper is great! Hard copies of whatever I need. And it comes in all sorts of colors and with logos and well...you know. But here's the problem. It procreates. I know it does. If I leave out two sheets of paper...the next day there are six. And when I leave out three...well the party must go on WAY into the night. Because the next day there are about twenty or so.
And when the kids come home, Mama gets the papers. And I'm afraid to throw one out because some of the teachers have this aggravating little habit of losing the students' papers. And I'll be damned if I don't need the back-up for evidence.
Every once in a great while, I'll hole-punch, file, and put away the paper. But give it a month, and I'm right back where I started.
Suggestions? Hints? Medication?
I would love to know how y'all deal with this. I'm trying to be strong and just make a clean sweep.
But see my hands? They're shaking. Don't know if I'm ready for complete separation or not.
For now, I'll self-medicate with my Diet Pepsi.
