Still have some stuff to do here; I’m not catching up as quickly as I would like to. I did get rid of a bunch of cardboard boxes, though, and I cleaned out the freezer on Monday, so that’s a little progress. A little. 8 months ago
work, it happens before I do any exercise. It happens more when I do strength than cardio, but I just hate doing it. (And maybe I hate that I have to do it, too?)
Thanks for all the kind words, regardless! 8 months ago
Flight but I was angry that the trailers played something from the last ten minutes of the movie. It would have worked so much better if that had been a surprise. 8 months ago
Before. It got better during. But before I got surprisingly angry.
(Also: you giving me all these cheers makes me feel really good today. Thanks so much!) 8 months ago
fairly significant (internal) bout of anger. God, I really don’t like this. Grrr. 8 months ago
almost at all, actually. This shall not stand. I will do something tomorrow. I must. 8 months ago
even though I have been in this apartment for two and a half years, and probably won’t be leaving for another year and a half, I still look at it as a “temporary space” and that may be why I don’t care about how it looks. 9 months ago
- clean the microwave table (dust, wipe down, clean microwave and toaster oven)
- clean the oven
- clean the elements and put in element protectors
- go through the freezer looking for expired/freezerburnt food
- wipe down the fridge
So a lot. But at least I also did a lot too! 9 months ago
I have a lot of art around that I would like to put up, but I haven’t actually picked my art. I should do that tonight. 9 months ago
about a dozen of those cheers yesterday, thank you! 9 months ago
I knew I had to pick something from the bedroom because that place has gotten bad, and it was what I chose to spend my Mindful Minutes on. So that helped narrow it down.
I picked tackling the bedside table because it’s been messiest the longest. I don’t know if it’s going to make the biggest impact, but I’ve got to pick something, after all! 9 months ago
I sat on the floor in my bedroom and I looked at it for 10 minutes. I imagined the mess was gone, I imagined the furniture was gone, I imagined the comics were gone (the hardest part). And I noticed a lot of little things that could easily be cleaned up, some things that could easily be put away or given away. And some things that would take a long time. It actually made me feel better because it wasn’t all as bad as I thought.
And then I did something I wasn’t supposed to: I put 3 things away, including boxing up a fan that should never even have been bought. I might try to sell it, but I might just make my parents put it in their basement until I have space for it. 9 months ago
I did Day Six yesterday because it was quicker and I had much less time. I will do Day Five today.
(Feeling sick. Bleh.) 9 months ago
I somehow managed to finish all the floors (except for the bedroom and the floor in the closet, which will be done when I tackle the closet) this morning before 11AM. And I got some flowers to put on the table. It wasn’t easy but it’s done. Now for some more projects, I guess.
(Taking time away from exercise and adding it to apartment work this week was a good thing I think. But now this week I need to try to balance both.) 9 months ago
No flowers yet but today I did the living room floor and the bathroom floor. Tomorrow is for the dining room, kitchen, hall, and entryway. It’s doable.
(And I gotta remember flowers tomorrow.) 9 months ago
and yes, it’s taken too long. But I read Judas Contract, I have texted a friend to get some Cerebus comics, and I have a list of the issues of DD that are in the Frank Miller/Klaus Janson omnibus, so I will at least know what to look for that can patch the gaps in the stories that I’ve already read. Progress-ish. 9 months ago
looks like it’s done! Seriously: all I had to do was do a stop payment. That’s ridiculous. Anyhow, that’s good. I’m not flushing $100 down the drain every month. Which will be helpful in paying things down. 9 months ago
a lazy week which is a good thing because I’ve been skipping a LOT this week. I overbooked myself, and have to be more mindful of making sure I set the time aside for this in the next 5 weeks. 9 months ago
It went well, took me less time than the website said it would, and not every space had a lot of stuff to do, but I was happy to get it done, prioritize things, and make a list. Some of my “projects” are tricky to manage (e.g., the pile of crap on my bedside table) but I have faith in the system. 9 months ago
I’m putting them to pasture for a bit and working on this instead. My friend is doing it and it looks like a good way to get a lot done, so I’m trying it. I’m starting on Wednesday so I’ll be exactly two weeks late and it’ll match the original start date.
AND (he says to himself) I’m going to try to record everything here. Let’s see how this goes. 9 months ago
five weeks (plus one gimme week if I need it). Sounds pretty hard but I think I might be able to do it. 9 months ago
so now I need another goal. I think I did okay with this one, but I’m not sure; I’d feel a little more confident if I hadn’t had the Christmas Break slump but otherwise I’m feeling okay about it. 9 months ago
than the first one, and I was there for every step except the bottling. We’re going to do a third batch next week, and my plan is to be there for EVERY step including bottling. And now that we’re adding a few things to the kit, trying to ride the bike without training wheels so to speak, I’m feeling a little more confident. I just wish we got more beer per batch: I give away so much that there’s not too much left over for me! (Selfish me.) 9 months ago
