Kibbles and Bits

As I continually delve into the quest for organization, I find myself time and time again wondering where should I file those tid bits of information that I want, perhaps may need but want to remove from my e-mail and file... somewhere!

For instance, I saw an episode of Ghost Hunters where they went to a plantation in Louisiana. It was the MOST amazing place I've ever seen and I said to myself, that is exactly how I want my dream home to look. Do a Google image search for "Oak Alley Plantation" and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. It's amazing.

So, I did what any like-minded thinking woman would do. I emailed them asking for a floor plan. And you know what? They responded back with room measurements, et al. So, now I have a blue print with which to work from when designing my dream home. :) A big square with a huge wrap-around porch.

I want to keep this information but I don't know exactly where to keep it. I know I'll need it eventually... some day... but I fear if I delete it I won't remember the name of the plantation and then I'll be so sad.

It's just one little e-mail of many that are scattered about various files in my quest for organization. For now it's in a folder called "Home Matters" since it really does deal with matters of the home. I just know it needs to get out of my e-mail program and put somewhere else. But isn't it better to have it electronically than in a paper somewhere? I guess it's a matter of me not trusting Outlook not to crash.

That AboutOne program sure seems to be making more and more sense for someone like me! :)

Sigh... i need someone to organize my organization.

It's amazing how a week of snow days can just frazzle your entire organized world. Jerry would say, "Look to the cookie, Elaine" but as George proclaims... "Worlds are colliding!"

I miss Seinfeld.

I don't even want to think about the things I have stashed in all of those electronic folders! If you figure out how to organize it, let me know.
