Word opens old document

Whenever I open up MS Word, instead of getting a blank page the document contains a paper I already wrote.  The same is true if I hit the "new page" button or click new on the menu.  I always end up with the same page I've already written.  I can delete the writing, but it is annoying and wastes time.

Any ideas on why this is happening?
