Random recap of my weekend.
Saturday was a flurry of crazy business. Our house actually looks worse at the moment, even with all the stuff we've removed, because we're in the middle of some patchwork at 3 different locations--which will take 4 days in total to complete ( a layer of plaster patch mix has to thoroughly dry each day). So, our couch is pulled out from the wall, the bookshelves are partly cleared, there are bins of stuff stacked in the living room, along with the stack of to-be-used bins, and paint and rollers and tape and spray galore. :) We spent a good chunk of the day gutting the downstairs room and hauling everything up and out into the storage shed. Did I mention it's 50% humidity here? Which isn't much compared to my southern neighbours, but when you normally have about 35%, it makes a huge difference in the SWEAT factor. Then I painted my front rails (which was nice--in the shade in the evening, nice and cool...well, less warm, anyway) which took about an hour. The actually look like normal black shiny metals rails now, not rusty metal protrusions. :) DH thoroughly vacuumed every inch of the downstairs, clearing out ALL the cobwebs and spiders. :):) Go hubby.
Sunday was less productive--I was tired after 3 nights of disrupted sleep, and cranky to boot. Picked up the rest of the paint cans and a few other things...packed up a few random things here and there. For some reason I feel compelled to gut all my cupboards and dressers as well--I guess because I'll have people traipsing through my home, poking through said cupboards, and clutter could give them a bad overall feeling about the house.
So this morning is de-clutter another closet, clean out my fridge, maybe the rest of the kitchen cupboards, spray/kill the wayward grass on the sidewalk, and water some more lawn. Oh, and buy some grass patch--I accidentally killed a circle of grass by leaving a pile of raked stuff too long. Heh.
What does any of this have to do with weight loss/fitness? Not a thing. :) I guess a lot of physical activity...but otherwise, no, some days the priorities in my life are just...not weight loss related. Imagine that.
Oh, we also got a junk guy here to clear out all the dead furniture (couch, bbq, lawnmower, kid toys, tires, dead lumber, and a whole shwack of tree limbs from our willow). Yay! Our yard doesn't look like a redneck yard anymore! Lol. The only thing we were missing was a couple of rusted out car bodies. :):):)
Oh, and my weight drop has stayed. Wasn't sure if it was 'real' but decided to record it anyway just to keep track of my fluctuations.
Anyway--de-cluttering calls. Hmmm. I should have taken 'before pictures of the house. I could still do so. :)
