The Streak Has Restarted...

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

On Monday, while I did do an EA Sports workout and mowed the lawn I fell short of my step count. So I restarted yesterday and I am hoping to keep my step count up over the weekend. I have a problem with the last day of the weekend being less active. This is usually due to the fact that I am sitting on my butt doing school work and I also wake up much later than do the rest of the week.

I guess it is time to actually get a routine down and actually set my alarm so that I don't waste half the day sleeping (usually because the hubby and I have stayed up until the wee hours of the morning talking, listening to music and on occasion drinking).

I also haven't been able to get everyone else in the house on board with keeping the house tidied. I know that the house cleaning is my problem because it's not like the house is dirty, it's just cluttered. I can find most things I am looking for and the clutter is partially due to the fact that there are 4 mostly grown people (the hubby and I and 2 teenagers) living in under 1,000 sq. ft., tight quarters and we all have a lot of stuff.

With school I just don't have the time to actually clean the house the way I want and get it organized. We may be forced into that however because depending on my new career path I may actually have to build a small office (we have an addition that is full of stuff that I have no idea why we are holding on to it). Our addition isn't insulated and it leaks so it is essentially just a shed tacked onto the side of our house.

I guess I should actually go and do some school work, so I will stop the whining now and go TCB. Have a great night!

    Autumn purging.. instead of late night sitting, why not crank up the tunes and clean that office? You will absolutely feel 1,000% better afterwards. Whether you use it for your office or not, you can then start planning on what to do to it to stop the leaks and paint, insulate,etc..
Most of all,
USE YOUR FAMILY WISELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am convinced that clutter binds your mind...I have to do something about my clutter too... did a big cleaning up when I moved three years ago but it has crept back after I moved into this house...time to do something!
