Decluttering

So, my bed broke the other day which means I have to clean up for the delivery of a new one. That means I have started decluttering and donating thinks. All sorts of things. And throwing things out.

This plays in to one of my goals, so I am going to vaguely keep track of what I am getting rid of.

  • Paper mache box waiting for decor
  • old seeds from 2008
  • Seed box with directions on seed saving that I never used
  • Red ribbon
  • Two pairs of shoes that don’t fit right
      • Advertisements

        September Goals Post

        Doing my best. Honestly. It feels as though there’s been no progress… However, I am blogging this a little early (the 24th) so there might be some progress that doesn’t get recorded until next month. If I forget to update between now and the 30th.

        So, it’s a Sunday

        And I feel like I got nothing done really.

        However, on the other hand, I got through quite a bit of my to do list this weekend.

        I’ve been fighting through cleaning up my bathroom, including throwing out a few things that I’ve had for ages, but just haven’t used. And I have discovered the absolutely best way to motivate me to clean — give me a hard deadline for something else. In fact, the idea that I have something due in a week? That means I’ll happily wash the baseboards and vacuum the house.

        I have no idea why that is, but I know it’s true. I have to be careful to make myself focus on the real things.

        What I did get done:

        • Took books to the local bookstore so that as we ramp up into Christmas shopping time, there’s plenty of books at the shop.
        • Picked up the items I won at the local estate auction. Heck, Dr. Ruth’s Game of Good Sex looks hilarious.
        • Stopped at the storage unit to retrieve my friend’s camp chair for her to take with her camping.
        • Provided wholesale costs to a bakery client.
        • Made arrangements to discuss budget and timeline for a new app my business partner and I want to develop.
        • Picked up some apples and selzer at the grocery.
        • Edited part of GS.

        That’s a little better than what I thought I’d gotten done.
        Well, that’s all for this little check-in.

        Sunday Night Music: Tetris Ragtime

        This is the soundtrack of my childhood. Hours of my life were spent playing Tetris. This is why I can pack a car.
