Hmm…I got one shelf cleared off and less things put back onto it, but looking at this picture it doesn’t really look more organized…I have my MSI, calendar, pens, coffee and a power strip on it. I also have some important papers under the calendar for Kenzie’s school, things like report cards and things I really need to find a GOOD place to put it.
So the approach I’m taking at this point is to basically clear off surfaces, I put the papers (LOTS of papers) in a pile after throwing out anything not important, and then neatly put that stack on a different bookshelf. I see a new filing system in my future, I’m hoping one of those small carriable ones will be sufficient.
I did not make it to the floor clearing or dishes at all, so for today, which is Day 3 I have the day, or at least most of it to myself, Geoff is giving me the gift of some free time, which I appreciate though am torn as to whether it means it makes sense for me to relax or if it means I have a chance to clean up a lot.
Instinct is saying clear some more shelves, or at least remove everything and put it back more consciously and neatly. I will tackle the two shelves below “my” shelf and the one shelf above.
Once again once these are done, I do want to tackle clearing the floor, dishes I think I’ll hold off on and take some knitting time if I have a chance so I do get some relaxing time too, unless a dish urge emerges which though unlikely is possible.
Our next place or this place if we keep it, would really be much more manageable with a dishwasher…I’m wishing I took up an offer months ago for a $75 one a friend was getting rid of.
If anyone wants to get us a special present a dishwasher plus installation would be AWESOME.
Here’s the summary for my DOL project:
