Day Nine

First roll of the day is thirty minutes in the Garage. Now, if I can only get Newell off to work so the car will be out of the middle of it. 🙂 Trash has been collected, so my can is empty, but with the bags waiting to go in it, it will be full by the end of the day…

UPDATE ONE: Make that before noon. Trashcan is already full till next Monday, and I didn’t get half the trash in it. Wonder if there is something to do about that? They used to have stickers you could buy and put on extra bags. If they still do, I might have to get some.

Swept most of the Garage and got the apartment dishwasher I inherited many years ago almost emptied. There is broken glass in the bottom though, so I’ll need to be careful with that.

Getting a lot of little rolls today. It will mean a lot of chores! Second roll fifteen minutes in the downstairs bath. But I think I may go do a load or two of laundry first while I have the car today.

UPDATE TWO: Back from the laundromat — luckily, we have an AWESOME one nearby, Wash Day. I love that place. Friendly, helpful people; seldom a wait; and no coins needed — it’s all on a card. I see that they have a branch even closer now. I’ll have to check that out.

Then, a quick stop at the grocery store. Having the whiteboard in the pantry to jot down groceries on and picking things up as I need them seems to be working. On the other hand…usual result of laundry is back ache, and today is no different. I have got to figure out a way not to incapacitate myself with chores! So, taking a bit of a break before I get back to work.


UPDATE THREE: Noticeable difference in the downstairs bath in fifteen minutes. Still some to do in there, but it’s so small that even a few minutes made it look much better. Keep that in mind — a few minutes straightening can make a world of difference in a room, even if there is no for deep cleaning.

The best part of all this work is that Newell is noticing the effort. That makes me happier than anything.

So, 45 minutes down today means two and a quarter hours to go…next roll coming up.

30 minutes in the Dining Room. Looks like the floor may be most of the agenda. Loving my new Mr. Clean Magic Eraser mop. It works like a charm.


UPDATE FOUR: Lots of updates on a little roll day! Floor mopped and plants trimmed up a bit. To be honest, I’m wiped out today…and I spent more than 2 hours on the trip to the laundry and the grocery store. I’m counting that time toward the three hours today. Does that seem fair to you? If not, I’ll never do it again. 😉 (Newell said it was cool. :P)
