In the Course of......

I recently bought a new shredder so that I could rid myself of excess paper and clear room for files I still use. Beginning with old income tax returns and supporting expenditure files I then moved to my production materials. It was bittersweet. I remembered the transactions the people, the properties and lastly I was taken by the money I used to make. Since I moved to Massachusetts from New Jersey I haven't really given much thought about anything except the day to day of my real estate career. Funny how this process triggered so many memories.

In so many ways I have never left the career, in so many others it was a million years ago. I have a new and very different life now. I do things for little or no money and for the most part completely control my day to day. I wouldn't change things but I have thought more in the last day about my real estate life than I have in years. 

Shredders are tools that sometimes bring things into focus, sometimes not. Today I will try and work in my yard.

I sometimes have vivid dreams of life before real estate 20 years ago. These dreams are frustrating but still a learning experience for me Sheila Anderson

Sheila,

How perfect that you are going to switch to the garden from the shredder.  Focusing on the garden clears my head, and it is a great form of therapy, playing in the dirt.  A

Oh the memories. Going through documents will do that to you. When we moved, we dumped so much paperwork. My shredder broke half way through the process and I cut stuff up by hand. That was a real pain. I should have just bought a new shredder.

A funny thing happened yesterday afternoon.  I also have been on a shredding kick off and on for several days.  I am nearly completed with it.  And, then I get a notice from my neighborhood "NextDoor" that a community shredding event is going on.  Now, they tell me!

Morning Sheila.

I agree, sometimes when I see a police vehicle running hot (lights and siren), I wonder where they are going, do they need backup and so on.  It never really leaves me

Sheila Anderson - The best investment I made for my home office years ago was a shredder. I say "many" because, in 16 years, I only had to replace it once. Unlike computers or laptops, I find they last a long time. I also use it to shred anything that has my name on it that I don't need, especially from all that junk mail!

We have had a shredder for a long time but we had so many files in the attic we ended up getting them all on Dropbox and having a commerical company come by. They are destroyed hard drives from old computers we had.

I agree - it's a lifestyle that no one who is not in our profession truly understand, Sheila. I can totally see how you really never get away from it.

Enjoy your time in the garden!
