For the very first time in nearly two years, I have a totally empty inbox.  I finished up all current work yesterday.  All I have left on my plate is long-range projects with deadlines in September, November and March and a few little tasks that require the contribution of others before I can close the files.  It is an exhilarating experience!  All the more so since I have no clue as to when it will occur again.  And with only 5 work days left till my  4 week summer vacation, the timing is fortuitous.   It will be nice to leave the office with an absolutely clean desk and no unfinished paperwork lurking under the dust cover.

I will be praying for a break in the heat wave though since the bulk of my vacation will be spent on the decluttering project I mentioned a few posts ago.  My husband has already filled 11 tall kitchen trash bags with shredded documents no longer needed and I have been working on closets.  So far I have gone through the linen closet and half of the kitchen cabinets.  But there is still so much more to do.   At least, the worst offender, the large walk in closet in the bedroom, is in a room with air-conditioning.  Don't feel too badly for us though: as Senior Citizens, we have free membership in the town pool and will be able to spend our afternoons cooling off in the pool and picnicking under the trees beside the Hudson River whenever we are so inclined.

Enjoy your summer break.

Four week summer vacation? How's that work? You just save it all for the summer? Or a fantastic employer? Either way, sounds marvelous! And the perks of being a senior in your area sound great! Hugs!
