Know What
I'm Sayin'??

Out of sight, out of mind.
You may or may know this about me, but most Sundays my wife and I have dinner with my parents. Usually in the 7:00 timeframe. We usually are able to hang around and chat awhile about...well, stuff.

Anyway, often the TV is on during our meal. We usually watch some combination of 60 Minutes and Antiques Roadshow. Tonight, during Andy Rooney's commentary during 60 Minute was pretty interesting. He talked about all of the different stack of papers and such in his office. The general gist was that he collects and stores a bunch of papers, and then doesn't do anything with them. At some point he decides that a particular piece of paper is important and stores it away, but rarely does he ever find a reason to go back and retrieve one of those pieces of paper.

He seems to be pretty comfortable with this arrangement, but he does realize that it's kinda counterproductive. I'm trying to move more towards a paperless lifestyle. I don't want to get to be Andy's age and have whole forests' worth of paper stacked up everywhere.

yes. my mother is like that and she feels like she has to go back and read all these papers. THEN she goes to her mother's house and complains and just starts throwing things out. so we do the same thing to her. then something makes me mad and i just start throwing my own papers away. breaking the cycle. i can't be the paper lady.
