June 22, 2018 – “New Schedule”

Hello, everyone!

Today will be the last regular Friday post and the next time one will be written is unknown (except perhaps to make up for Independence Day). My new weekly schedule will consist of the following: Mondays (8:00 AM – 12:00 PM), Tuesdays (9:00 AM – 1:30 PM), Wednesdays (9:00 AM – 1:30 PM), and Thursdays (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM). Fridays will be my day off, unless there are are hours to make up. However, this new schedule will take into effect after June 29. With the new schedule stated, the rest of the entry will feature the report of the day.

Since today was a short day, the amount of work done for the George L. Stuart Collection was expected to be minimal in comparison to the rest of the week. Still, the new Box 4 was steadily being filled. But, unlike the previous boxes, the content had to be pulled from random boxes with no consistency. Due to this nature, the work slowed  considerably. Yet, all “B” folders in the Senate Files had been housed in the new Box 4.

Kae came in to work as well. She did finish cataloguing the memorabilia into the spreadsheet yesterday, but she had to finish some of the physical arrangements until she was free to help. By the time she was ready, there were two boxes that had been pulled and were sitting on the conference table. I suggested she could try relabeling them for the time being (the folders would have to be relabeled at some point, anyway). Despite Kae’s help, Box 4 was not filled by the time for my departure. I cleaned my workspace and bid everyone farewell for the weekend before walking out the door at noon.

The report was very short, but there would not have been much to write about, anyway. The current stage in the processing is monotonous and describing the methods incessantly is not very appealing. The idea is to not make reading this blog is to not make it painful for the reader. On that note, enjoy the weekend and stay safe! Bye!
