Overwhelmed by Paper

In quiet contemplation, here I sit, gazing vacantly at my computer, staring at a gigantic flurry of receipts. What once were monolithic stacks of paper that needed attending to, now are petulant pieces of history littering our precious kitchen table space. I need to sort, catalogue and categorize this mess before entering the data into our accounting program (Quicken). Sigh …. and once this huge task of 10 months of backlog is achieved, I’ll be able to finally get together some semblance of a tax portfolio for our accountant. As you can probably surmise thus far, I’m feeling a tad bit overwhelmed by the involved and time-consuming task ahead of me. Right now, I can’t even give an estimate as to how long this undertaking will take until completion! You see, I kept procrastinating over the winter, thinking that I had plenty of time to compile all the information. But as I have learned about life on the road in our Airstream (especially when we’re moving every other day), life can be so incredibly and blissfully busy! Funny how time has slowly ticked away, bringing us in to May. WOW. The last 6 months literally flew by! Trying to maintain everything with yogaFLIGHT, delving in to social networking (new and familiar), developing other client websites including our own, constantly uploading photos to Facebook, and all the while documenting our journey at RVThereYet.ca as we skydived across the lower southwest corner of the US, kept me consistently busy. I was doing SO well in updating our blog each and every day since the New Year. Now I’m lagging here and there, and once behind, it’s almost impossible to try and catchuP. But in the chaos of it all, I can find self-forgiveness, taking each moment as it comes, one yogic breath at a time, sinking in to the present moment when I have the wherewithal to stop and smile. Ahhhhh, now THAT’S certainly better!
