So, about my Supernatural Unofficial Season 3 Companion? Yeah. I (finally) watched “The Magnificent Seven,” took notes, and… nada. Yeah, I don’t think that project’s going anywhere.
However, as I always tend to do when work pisses me off, I have made yet another schedule of things to accomplish before I retire. I believe I had previously mentioned (in a blog I have since deleted because it was corrupted) the mess my home is in. And that last spring I hired an organizer to help me. Well, I met with the organizer three times (once to assess, twice to clear out). And then I stopped. (They work for 4 continuous hours, and it’s very tiring, especially since I live on the top of a 4-story walk-up.) But the time has come when I need to start getting things done if I’m ever going to get the place ready to sell by the time I retire.
So yesterday I made a schedule of rooms to attack, one room per month. If I follow the schedule, I could get the place clutter-free by November. But I know I’m not going to be able to get it accomplished on my own. It’s time to call the organizer again. I may even consider taking a couple days off per month to get things taken care of.
But before March begins, there are a couple rooms I need to take care of: the kitchen and dining room. Both have been decluttered with the organizer, but I’m having trouble keeping them that way. So, here’s the plan of attack for the next 10 days.
The kitchen—The problem is the kitchen needs (at least a little) work every day or is it gets away from me. Plus, I have an electric outdoor grill I need to put together… and put outdoors. And I have a couple appliances that need to go to the Goodwill.
The dining room—Ah, it was so nice and clean. Then my computer crashed. When I got it back from the repair shop, I’d already set up my new computer. So the old computer went on the dining room table. It’s still there. I finally bought a backup drive. I need to backup the computer, clean the hard drive, and list it on Freecycle. (I’m not going to bother trying to sell it.) I have absolutely no excuse for it to still be sitting on the dining room table… except my own laziness.
I’ll let you know how much progress I make on March 1st.
