Day 33 (Month 2-2)

Some days, looking around at the good enough for company downstairs, it is easy to forget what is behind all the doors that are closed to deny cat access to rooms they don’t need to visit. Easy to say “we can skip today and goof off.” But that won’t help in the long run! Must NOT give into temptation. Instead, must go and do an hour and fifteen minutes in the Office, which was the first roll of the day.

I think I must break down and pull all the “reference” books that aren’t directly writing or project related and send them down to the library. It isn’t that hard to go downstairs and get something, but my space for books is way too limited to keep everything I might possibly EVER need in the Office. At least for now.

I’ll see you in a bit.

UPDATE ONE: As usual…progress in the Office is minuscule. I’ll post a picture, but I don’t know if you will be able to see the difference. There were a few other tiny things done, but they aren’t visible either. *Le sigh*


Before…                                                 After…

Psycho Kitty tries to help, but she gets bored quickly, and claustrophobic if the door is shut. Of course, she gets needy/dependent if she is shut outside… This is where she gets her nickname…

30 minutes in the Kitchen. Here we go next.

UPDATE TWO: Once I decided what I wanted to do, I upped the time to an hour. Still didn’t quite finish the area I was concentrating on, but got three quarters of it taken care of. Winnowed out more stuff for TPV (I hope they will have a BIG truck this month…) and also tossed all the expired medications in the cat drawer.

Here is the before and after of the part I was working on:


Before…                                                …after

Got the top cabinet straightened and organized, sorted through both drawers, and got the counter-top tamed. Still need to do that bottom cabinet, but at least I pulled down that nasty fly paper strip…

So, we are sitting at 2 hours and 15 minutes. Think I’m going to take a snack break. Then we’ll see how to finish up the day.


UPDATE THREE: Last roll of the day was 45 minutes in the Dining room. This is the Dining Room:

Not a lot more to do in there. Yeah, I do have to hem those curtains, but it would be better to get the other set hung before I do that, so that they will all match. So, instead, I mopped up a bit more and then finished that Kitchen unit that I started earlier.


DAILY WRAP UP: 1 hour 15 minutes Office + 1 hour Kitchen +45 minutes Dining Room/Kitchen = 3 hours.

Tomorrow is another doctor’s appointment, so that means going in with Newell. Will try to get my three hours in in the evening.

Have a great night.

    How many days can I milk the sciatic pain excuse before I have to get back to work? Isn’t there a Pass Go, Collect $200, and Take a Week Off clause in there somewhere?

    • No, no excuse. 😉 My back is often trashed by the end of the day. Have to push through it. It does suck though, and if you are having too bad a day, just relax. There should be SOMETHING you can do with a bad back. 🙂
