Finally emoticon I recaptured one of my 2 kitchen OOs--the cutting board that is now cleared of clutter and washed off, and will be pushed back into its slot once it has completely dried.

My OOs fell by the wayside a while ago, and I was about to make excuses, but then thought "This is nuts! It will only take me 2 or 3 minutes to clean my stovetop!" So I did, and I have one OO back--and I think this post hits 100 points tonight.

OK, after getting groceries and putting food away, I caught up on most of the dishes, and finally got the stovetop cleared off and scrubbed down. Making my salad for dinner left a few items sitting there, so I just went and cleaned it back off, returning it to OO status, before sitting down to report on the thread.

Well, the stove and counter & cutting board have been cluttered for over a week now. One of my parts got pretty upset about our failure to keep it clear--and there's such confusion and a lack of understanding why it keeps happening. I love it when it's clean, but so easily let one of 2 things sit there, instead of putting away, then more stuff goes there, and soon all calm and order and cleanliness are gone! I really hate this bad habit, but haven't managed to break it!

After keeping it clear and clean for 2 or 3 days, a few things got left, then a few more, so I cleaned it off last night, and have washed it down twice today. Also wiped and cleared off the pull-out cutting board and tiny counter above that (in front of the microwave). It makes such a delightful difference when I come into the kitchen to see this peaceful oasis! emoticon

I am so tired tonight--I yawned the whole time I was getting Dora her dinner. But I looked at the stove which was still mostly clear from my recaptured OO this weekend. And I thought how nice it will feel tomorrow morning when I'm making my coffee to see a clean stovetop. So I put the cutting board and knife on the drain mat to be washed in the morning, put away the empty plastic bag, and wiped of the surface with a sponge. I love that little shot of peacefulness and pride when I take those few minutes to set an OO to rights! emoticon

emoticon You really went for it today, Becca!

I got the stovetop scrubbed, and the burner pan, too, and the surface under that when I took it out. Also started scrubbing the kitchen floor--I do it in sections so they'll dry, and I can still walk around the wet parts.

Feeling under the weather today, but yesterday I spent an hour detailing the inside of my car. Dropped my blood glucose about 100 pts but I needed that exercise, as I was running too high.

Unsure if today is a day of rest or what.

10 more books leaving my apartment today. I have sorted the books from my book basket and determined where each will go. Next are those stored in my pantry.
Cleared off the side tables again first thing. Water bottles that were not empty were returned to the freezer for cols drinks later. trash thrown away and recharging cords returned to their basket after being used during the night.

Cleaned off my bedside table and my chairside table. I cleaned out my medicine box and filled med boxes for the next three weeks and discarded old prescription bottles.

A friend took me shopping today so I didn't get much done today. I am sorting books on the living room floor so that I can see them better. I have set a goal on how many I will keep and the rest will go. I have decided which authors mean the most to me and which books I think I can let go. I am nearing the end. I think this week will see an end to my hoard and a clearer home.

I mentioned in another thread how I did a deep cleaning in two kitchen spots, one of my pantry shelves, and the counter/cutting board between stove and fridge. Need to clean the latter from dinner, to maintain it as an OO!

I was talking to Mary about a decluttering challenge on another team during her visit today--as we both struggle with clutter. (Very possibly tied to abuse in family of origin.) I am dedicating myself to working on my clutter issues--not just physically attacking the stacks and piles and boxes of STUFF, but in considering what it means, why I feel powerless over it, why it is hard for me to let go, why it's often hard to decide where to put things.

I'm actually just getting a flash now, that sometimes getting rid of something feels like a failure, that I never got around to that task or project or idea, or a closing off of a possibility, and there's often a fear that I will need it later or regret my decision to toss. It may not be rational, but it can create great anxiety and make me resist setting aside time to sort when the prospect can make me feel nauseous and headachy.

I lovingly polished my two violins (which I haven't touched for decades), and put new strings on one of them. I buffed the leather case on one of them. It was a big deal for me to even touch those instruments. I was hurt badly by someone years ago in relation to my music. Now, I will be going back to my music, and getting therapy when needed for any issues that may arise.

I've been so proud of my little table Oasis of Order emoticon I've kept for months now. And I finally cleaned the stovetop off, wiped it down and put the little dollar store palm tree in the middle of it to declare it an official OO.

Finally cleaned out my bedroom and doing some laundry too. I just need to go through the paperwork now. Also, put together a nice filing cabinet and placed it behind my bathroom door in my bedroom. I am trying to start up a filing system again, and the filing cabinet won't even show in the room. :)

My kitchen got really bad; I've been working on it today. But I was thinking how on my little table that's remained an OO for many weeks on end now, I always return my reading glasses there, so I can always find them. I love not hunting around for them!

Nola, emoticon on all your fitness activity!

Amanda, I love hanging folders, to me they seem to make sorting through papers much easier. Congrats on uncovering that crate!

My desk looks good, I already have been working on my job-search today, with a candle lit. Yet now I have a stack of paper to sort through. The perfect activity during watching TV tonight.

Happy Sunday to all of you emoticon

Good luck with your organizing and rearranging, Marie! emoticon

And emoticon on the activity Nola! Do get enough rest, also!

I cleared and vacuumed some floor space in the dining room, and uncovered a crate for hanging folders to help me organize some of this mail I'm sorting. I'm also moving some of the mess around, but there are some small oases of order in there, too! emoticon

Taking it easy today. I did 60+ minutes of fitness yesterday and over 6800 steps. I was up all night with chest pressure. I hope they figure this out soon.
The kitchen was clean until I cooked and I will clean it after another rest.

Two days ago I prepared my living room for the winter. I don't have proper heating in my apartment. So each winter a move my furniture to create one corner that I can heat and where there is almost no airdraft to carry the warmth away.

Here you find my sofa with blankets and cushions and my computer and desk. Today it is a mess, not all things have found their place. It is the perfect chance to go through papers and see is useful and what can be set free. This is my task for this weekend.

My desk is in a way the control center of my life emoticon
