Remember Dixie Riddle Cups? My mom could get me to drink anything (even the dreaded serving of milk) from a Dixie Riddle Cup! I have no idea why I remember lots of the riddles if I try (I don’t even have to try hard), but there is one that I remember on this day every single year.
Q: What day of the year is a command to go forward?
A: March 4th!
Get it? 😀 If not, say the month and date out loud……… I knew you would get it!
So, what better to do on Go Forward Day than to get organized with an eye toward keeping up with it going forward? I thought it was a brilliant way to celebrate something I already planned (and needed) to do!
So here’s what got done:
- a significant amount of mail, junk, misc paper-like substances were sorted into piles named “follow-up”, “shred”, “recycle” or “file”
- shred pile is shreded and bagged
- recycle pile is bagged
- follow-up initiated with various medical providers and the insurance co. – all but one resolved as of 5 pm with 2 checks coming and none outgoing at this point.
- file is the only pile remaining to attend to, but it’s a very small amount in comparison to where we began.
There is more to do, but much progress was made and I feel like Go Forward Day was well-marked around here!
