Day Nineteen

We’re almost through Week Three. Who would have thunk it? I think this is the longest I’ve stuck with a project yet. AND, in a completely side-related matter, the first time the scale has read under 190 in FAR too long. Hopefully, I can keep burning more calories than I eat for awhile…

First roll of the day: An hour and 15 minutes in the pantry. I don’t know if there is that much to do in there, but there is enough to make it worth keeping the roll. I’ve been re-rolling on the pantry lately since I spent so much time in there early on, but it is good to revisit it now and then.

UPDATE ONE: Okay, I admit it…I was a bad girl today. I had done about 15 minutes in the pantry, tidying away some things that needed to be thrown away, when Newell agreed to take me up on my suggestion we walk over to Chuy’s for lunch. I didn’t want to make a hungry man wait, so I quit in the middle of my task. (Believe me, I got more of a workout walking over there with my 6′ husband than I would have finishing in the pantry!) Now I need to go back to it. I’m still not sure there is another hour that NEEDS to be done in there, but I bet I can find something to do.

UPDATE TWO: Definitely couldn’t do another hour, but I got a lot of sweeping done, and some trash disposed of. As usual, I forgot to take pictures of the pantry…sorry for that. I’m going to call that another 30 minutes, so that is 45 so far today. It was HOT in there. Dripping sweat. Probably worked off my salad from lunch, so YAY! 

My next roll tried to send me back in there, but I say NO WAY I’m doing more in the pantry today. Re-rolling that one.

Looks like another hour in the library — but I am taking a wee break first.


UPDATE THREE: Time in the library is done, and I am worn out for today. The walk to Chuy’s at lunch added to the hour and 45 minutes I’ve done today have taken their toll. I may or may not get in the other hour and 15 minutes I’m supposed to do today, but I am still gasping like a fish to breathe, so I may just take it easy the rest of the night. At least I saw some progress…

Here is the area I concentrated on today in the library:


Before — and actually, the area I concentrated on most was to the right of these shots, but I intended to deal with this stuff…

As you can see in the after shots, there really was a lot of stuff moved around. Those black shelves were in pieces to the left of this chair for example. Most of the stuff on them will eventually come out of the library, but it is safe where it is for now.


After — see the black shelves? Right now they have stuff that belongs in the Office/Study because we are in the process of shifting those two rooms, but there is nowhere to put that stuff in the Office, so it is staying where it is for the moment.

And — because the Psycho Kitty has gotten most of the photo love, here is a picture of Luther sleeping peacefully on the Cat Tree that they got for Christmas. He really loves that perch. I am so glad we could step up when he needed rescuing, because he is a very sweet  — if extremely paranoid baby.


If I feel like doing more later, I’ll update again. If not, see you tomorrow. 🙂
