Having a little bit of a problem consistently doing 20/10s. D and M are making up for this; they worked on setting up his work area. D’s work area is really coming along and he is just waiting for equipment from work. He’s on schedule to be working from home around the end of the year. M cleared up some stuff in the garage.
Hope to drop off charity items before end of the week. Gave a load of stuff to my best friend and have more ready to take to my sister. For the first time in years, I won’t be doing Thanksgiving, which is taking some pressure off. Still, I need to get everything under control before next year.
Dropped off tons of books at the bookstore today. Went ahead and used all my credit to get the kids’ b-day and xmas gifts. I got a book and magazine for myself. I should be done with trading in books until after the new year.
Tomorrow I will finish packing up the items my BFF is taking. Everything is in one place, but I need to put it in containers for travel and put it in the car. Don’t expect it to take too long. Also, G has a dr appt. Will do laundry that I didn’t get to on Tuesday. On the laundry front, M has decided to get rid of even more bedding and household linens. We aren’t using them now, so she realized we won’t miss them.
Back on the Wagon
Did pretty well today with 2 20/10s. Heading to the bookstore tomorrow to trade in even more books and hope to make a dump run or charity run before week’s end. I keep finding fucking mugs! A box that I thought had printer paper under D’s desk actually had plates and mugs. A friend agreed to take some of them, but I’ve still got like 10 more to go.
D will be working from home soon, so M and I have been helping him get ready. His desk is 98% clear and ready to be setup for work. Still making improvements in the rest of the room, but I got quite a bit of that done today.
Goals continue to be general upkeep and getting D’s office space fully setup.
Trying to get back on task
I’ve been having problems unfucking for the last few weeks. I’m doing my best to get back to it. I’ve finished my continuing education and got all my paperwork in order, yay! That had really been weighing on my mind, but it’s done.
I’ve been trying to stay on top of stuff, so nothing gets worse, even if nothing improves. I go around for a few minutes each day picking up stuff and returning it to its proper place. Most of the habits/systems I’ve put in place are working, like keeping the floor and my desk clear of clutter and having a set laundry day. Just gonna appreciate the small victories and work on making more progress in the future.
Waited over 3 hours for a repair man today which totally wrecked the plans for unfucking. Good news is D got started on his desk today and is committed to working on it for the next few days. He is eager to start working from home and I can’t blame him.
Tomorrow M and I are going to tidy up the kitchen and laundry area a bit. We are going to be doing some home improvements/repairs soon, so we are also going to scout out the local hardware/salvage stores.
Got a majority of the books off to the bookstore today. Now have $50 more tradein credit for Xmas and birthdays; the kids will be happy.
I talked to D about cleaning off his desk. I told him that I think he could get done in a week with 1 20/10 a day. He said he will start tomorrow.
Will work on tidying up the kitchen counters tomorrow. I’m also going to see about clearing out around his desk, so he has nothing to complain about there.
I caught up on my laundry today. I couldn’t do much else as D stayed home sick and I didn’t want to disturb him. I also tidied up my room. The house is messier this week than usual, but I can get it back to ok with a little time.
Tomorrow I am taking the books out of the living/dining room to the bookstore. I also need to move a few boxes in there; D just got a new desk chair, but there’s no room for it in front of the desk. I will also work on some of the neglected maintenance.
The past week
I have been ill and was unable to unfuck. I will start anew this week. However, I will not be in the kitchen, or at least, not very much. D will be working from home, probably before the end of the year. He will be setting up shop in the living/dining room. Although the room is much better than it was, more work needs to be done. I will be focusing on the living/dining room until it is fully set up for D.
M made the dump run this morning. We went out later and I found a great dress for my cousin’s wedding. Still have to find shoes. I’m also thinking about making a quick shawl, but I really need to work on unfucking.
I like the idea of unfuck buddies. I’m not having a problem with accountability right now, but who knows what the future holds?
M’s surgery went well. She loaded the dishwasher and we will unload tomorrow. Also planning another dump run tomorrow too.
