In which i reduce the paperwork pile

Junk Mail

Uggghhh…I just realized that I’m leaving in two days to go to California and I really don’t have my shit together AT ALL for this blog.  Yeah, I have a few things written but I really need to get some more posts up and yet, Kevin is bugging me about my paperwork.

 

You see, there’s a pile about a foot tall in my office.  Well, there WAS a pile about a foot tall in my office but its not longer a foot tall.  The reason is that I have now divided it into three separate piles.  One pile is tax stuff and I figure I can deal with that when I get back.  Now that I took everything out of the envelopes it’s compressed that particular pile and its only about 4 inches tall.  Do you realize that just by removing the envelopes you basically cut your piles in half?  That way even if you do absolutely nothing it looks like you have far less paperwork.

 

Yup, this is a trick that I’ve learned and that I’m now sharing with you.  You can thank me later.

 

Another pile (which is huge) is stuff that I feel that Kevin should look over.  That way I’ve gotten rid of another two inches of paperwork; I am cooking here.  That leaves insurance and bills.  Hmmmm…I suppose that I’ve divided stuff up into four categories, not three.

 

Insurance, as you know, is the bane of my existence. I really don’t know how dumb people do it because I find it incredibly cumbersome and confusing.  I just received this massive bill for all these specialty blood tests that Keely had to have done because of the blood clot.

 

You see they had to make sure she didn’t have a blood disorder (she didn’t) and that it was just some random bad luck (it was) and that’s all well and good but why didn’t my insurance pay for that?  I have no idea and that’s my point.  Am I supposed to pay it or to call up Cigna?  I am definitely going to call but I’m putting that off until after my trip.  At any rate, that pile is about 3 inches tall too and that’s AFTER all the envelopes are removed.

 

The last pile is my bills.  I paid them online (for the most part) and they were actually the smallest portion since so many of my bills are automated now.  I suppose there is yet another pile, which is things, I’m “supposed to be doing.”

 

For example, they told me last year I needed to have this Dental Surgery because I’ve brushed my gums away  (again) and somehow it’s one year later and I still haven’t done so.  As a result, I’m constantly getting reminders from that doctor about making an appointment.

 

Same with the OB/GYN; I constantly get reminders that I’m overdue for whatever it is that they do.  I know, I know.  I need to do it but I hate making phone calls and therefore I’m always sooooo late for that shit.

 

Well this was certainly a boring post but that’s what I’ve been up to today.  Hope yours is more exciting and hopefully I’ll write some interesting stuff in California.  We shall see.  No promises.
