Today I had a choice of things to do. I had 2 things high on my list -both needing my attention!
I could ,
#1, get out all my junk that I keep (mostly) enclosed together with rubber bands inside a little notebook. That is all bills and misc. mail, bank statements, medicare statements, and all those piles of offers for a better interest rate for credit cards...
And those HUGE piles of address labels for all those worthy causes! These are good causes, one and all, but I wonder, more and more, just how many address labels do they think any normal person can possibly use! I have come to the point where I often just throw the whole pack away, unopened! Oh! Don't get me wrong here! I do donate to lots of causes! I mean-obviously- they have my number! There's never a week goes by that I don't receive several of these packs of address labels and pleas for $$! I send $$ randomly and never keep track of what I send (small amounts) or to which charities! I figure they are all worthy! But for sure I can't send $$ to each one , each and every time I get the address labels!
This is probably a 'Ginga' kind of thing but I have always donated to The American Lung Association...well, that is, since I found my teenage daughter smoking (against our wishes)oh, so many decades ago! I think I felt it was a way of fighting against the harm smoking would/could do...a small measure of trying to keep my kids safe! This is one I still donate to-above all others! ...However-I couldn't possibly use all the labels I get even from this one organization! And multiply that by about a dozen more!!!
K- one more gripe then I'll move on! Magazine subscriptions that run out -and you've decided not to renew- but they keep giving you just one last chance -over and over and over...and get their prices lower and lower and lower! Sometimes offer you 3 years for the price of one! ....But who can remember details of these things? I sure can't! And it seems my mags run out a lot sooner than you'd expect-since I am always offered these fantastic deals and take them, often! Sometimes I just give it all a break and let them all go for awhile, buy my occasional magazine at full price! Less to deal with in my mailing of bills .
There's other annoyances of balancing the check book ...and realizing there's a check unaccounted for and you have no clue what it was for or for how much...
And much more...
I do not like paying bills!
#2....I could do garden stuff!
That's what I did! :)
I planted all the Caladiums . (14 pots of them) And I did some weeding but still have a lot to do!
Here's some pics of my flowers!
