Asta 2

Another Quick Update

Happy Fourth of July to whomever (or is it whoever, I always get those confused) celebrates it. I just completed my usual tradition, watching 1776. And, oh, yes, I do have my power back! Actually, I got it back last night even though the power company stated power may not be restored until tomorrow night. I had packed a bag and headed to my mom's house after work yesterday, her power was restored around 4pm, but I decided to call my apartment around 11:00 and, as luck would have it, the answering machine was on. My mom was disappointed I wasn't going to be spending the night, but after a stressful week I wanted to sleep in my own bed and, more importantly, she doesn't have internet access. ;)

Today I basically lounged around either inside or out. I began my Clean Out the Email project. One account is down from 210 to 70. Woo!

And I started to clean out old paperwork, but that was thwarted by some sort of back spasm (which is already better due to Advil and heat). Btw, does anyone have a good resource for how long you are supposed to retain certain records. The old standard use to be seven years, but is that for everything? I saw on three sites different time frames for credit card statements - three months, three years, and six years. Three months seems too short to me, but either of the others could be accurate. And you're supposed to keep utility bills for a year. Really? I've been shredding them as soon as the next months statement arrives.
