Getting Tired!

Monday, September 03, 2012

Another 10 hour day at work! After work and dinner, I went and picked up some moving boxes and my parents also picked some up for me. I spent the rest of the evening going through the totes in the shed. Brought several into the house that need to be gone through - because I will NOT move it. Spent another 2 hours working, carrying, moving. Think that more than qualifies as my exercise today!

Tuesday will be another busy day.

1. Work 7am to noon and then off until Friday! emoticon
2. Go to bank. emoticon
3. Verify new address/confirm work site appropriate. emoticon
4. Sign moving contract.
5. Contact Data shredding company to save my shredder and time. emoticon
6. Contact cost for dumpster.
7. Verify if fence is sold.
8. Start on totes -
9. Start on a desk/hutch in my bedroom that I want to sell and
10. Start on the on the wall unit in my spare room that I also want to sell.
11. Bring stuff to daughter's apt. emoticon
12. Take one hour to veg! emoticon or several!
13. Don't forget to Spark in am and pm! emoticon

I think that should cover Tuesday.

  Wow! I wish I had it all together like you do. How do you do it? I can't record two things to do without getting lost. You inspire me to do better. Much better.

Great Day!

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Today was way too short!

I worked 10 hours today and then took a couple of hours to enjoy and relax. I was able to go through some of my stuff in my office to as a start to my declutter/move project. I also am working on my moving checklist that someone was so kind to refer me to.

After my relaxation, I spent 2 hours working in the yard cleaning up and going through piles of stuff that had been allowed to stagnant. It felt so great to move that stuff out! Now I do have a space for everything that needs to go to the landfill, along w/ stuff that needs to be donated. Still have work in the shed, but happy where I am at this moment!

Tomorrow is another 10 hour day and will continue in my shed and then Monday will start in the house. I am hoping my daughter is able to find some great boxes for me tonight!

6 am comes early so off to bed! Thanks for all of the encouragement.

BTW - yard work is exhausting and sure burns calories!

Being Overwhelmed!

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I found out that my mobile home will most likely be moved on 9/25 unless there are some weather issues. A common misconception that I had, was that I would have to pack, but could leave everything in my mobile home during transport. No......I have three weeks to pack up everything, sell and remove a privacy fence and clean out, sell and remove my shed. All while working 45 hours per week.

Needless to say, my anxiety level went through the roof. I have since calmed down. Put the fence up for sale and already have three people interested in it.

I am going to start in my shed to see what can be thrown, donate or sold. I will have a hugh garbage pile, may rent a dumpster if necessary. I really wanted to declutter and although my time will not allow for a complete declutter, perhaps it will do more than if I had "time" as I will have to make quick decisions. So I will march myself over to the organizing site I just joined for inspiration and ideas!

More Overtime!

Friday, August 31, 2012

I have mandatory overtime and this month is not really not a good time to move with no available time off. I am a bit stressed and overwhelmed. So much to do and I think I will be ok once I have everything finalized. I don't know how I will do my exercise although I am packing and moving will count! I just want to know dates and nail the details down so I know what is going! I will continue w/ my sparkpeople! emoticon

    There have been times I've been in your place. You have no choice with the overtime, so that's settled. You have to move,? so that's settled. Other things will just have to take backseat for a few days to allow you to get organized. Right ?

I ran my legs off carrying boxes and putting stuff away. I sure didn't need any other exercise at that time emoticon LOL.

Just make such you have plenty of good fruits to grab when your busy and want to snack. emoticon emoticon Rita
