Dentist, and organization

I have to go to the dentist today and I'm really, truly not looking forward to it. I've got a small chip in my tooth that needs fixing, which means a novacain shot. Of course, not that these aren't pretty painful on their own, I'm one of the lucky people whose nerves aren't in the "normal" spot so I invariably end up getting stuck twice as much so that they can find the right spot for the nerve. Whee. I've loaded up my ipod with some sountracks so hopefully that'll at least be distracting.

I've been working this year on getting organized and recovering from right about this time last year; I've been spending the last week gathering and processing about 18 months worth of papers and junk. I've just been coasting for that period of time - 6 months of working 70-80 hour weeks will do that to you, and then 12 months of being lazy and looking at the pile of STUFF that accumulated and trying to get over the activation energy required to do anything about it. With the whole new year and it being a new seven year cycle, that was enough motivation to get things moving. I'm about halfway through my pile - just two and a half more boxes to go, and then I have to type all the remaining actions and stuff into my outlook. And with that, hopefully I'll get on top of things for the next year or seven. Wouldn't that be great?

More later under the covers, meeting time now.
