Greetings, readers. For years I have dealt with this minor hoarding problem of mine. Bill Updegraff, my accountant, laughs every time I say I am going to clean my room. I’m even starting to laugh at it now. I found out, however, that if I do a little bit each day something strange occurs. Things get done and it actually looks better. Who knew?
The task I am not looking forward to is once again cleaning out the fridge and freezer. I promised myself up and down the Bible that I was not going to let that happen again … but I did. On my computer I have actually started a Word document called Daily and Weekly Chores. I’ve noticed with myself that if I write it down and can see it, I am more apt to get the chore done.
I would like to purchase a new or slightly used love seat with a single bed in it for the living room. That’s not going to happen until I clean out Dead Blue and Dead Red (the two defunct recliners.) I just know that when I get to that chore, somewhere at the bottom I will exclaim, “Oh, that’s where that thing was!” There are at least three DVDs which I know I have but cannot find. I bet they are at the bottom of Dead Red. I’m going to start with Dead Blue though. It has the lessor amount of stuff on it.
Sundays and Wednesdays will be take out the trash days. Mondays … usually my completely free day … will be allocated for such things as getting rid of the accumulation of stuff. Tuesdays I think shall be the day to vacuum. With me allergic to dust – and having a ton of it in here – I don’t know if I’ll have to get someone in here to help me or just get a dust mask to wear. If not, it will be the sneezin’ season every Wednesday. Other days will be allocated for the kitchen and bathroom detail such as keeping the fridge clean, wiping down the inside of the microwave, refilling Princess Josie’s two feeders, cleaning the toilet, etc. If I can keep to such a schedule, in a few weeks I might have a half-way decent looking place. But I tell you, folks, some days I just don’t have the energy. All I want to do is sleep. The next time I see Dr. Sulman (yes, I know I missed my appointment the other week) I am going to have him test my blood to see if I am iron or potassium deficit.
So wish me luck on this endeavor. Within the hour, unless there is a torrential downpour, I am off to the bank to get my finances in order. Another chore I must learn to keep on top of.
There’s the Sunday blog, written on Wednesday and scheduled to publish today. Have a great few days and we will see you Wednesday. Take care and, as always, happy reading.
