Oh Nola emoticon I so relate! emoticon The last couple nights the push has been to get another application finished (due at noon tomorrow, and submitted a short time ago). I'll get there, as I'm sure you will. Trying to work out a consistent and helpful routine to get it done more often.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Why oh Why can't I make myself get to that paperwork emoticon it is keeping my apartment from looking all cozy.
My helper comes today and most everything is good but the paperwork!
Off to the kitchen to do my OO there!

I changed around the furniture in my apartment this weekend. It looks much more inviting when you first walk in the door. I want people to have a good first impression. I am very pleased. I still need to delete some books but that will take more stamina than I have at the moment. I am still convinced that I can read them all. emoticon

I think books are a little like rabbits - they quickly multiply on the bookshelf!

My area to work on this week is desk tops and dresser top in my bedroom. These areas just seem to attract clutter, and I am tired of having to search for things.

I have claimed the top of a side table next to my recliner as an OO, but it has open shelves on 2 sides which hold books, journals, craft stuff, etc. I hadn't sorted through especially on the back side in some time--that dust was thick! So I pulled it all out and am deciding what to do with what I found. I'll report when I have it organized and the old stuff dealt with.

Okay I need to get back to getting some OOs spots done. My kitchen is a mess so I am starting there.

Kitchen ~ Clean out sink of dishes and scrub it. Clean off counters. Put away stuff out of grocery sacks.

Dining room ~ Clean off dining table and order a couple of nice table cloths to help keep me motivated on keeping it cleared off.

Okay that's what I am starting with this week.

I so hear you about the mail, Leslie! I just can't seem to maintain an OO there. emoticon
I just picked stuff off the living room floor so I could do a DVD workout--which means my couch is no longer an Oasis of Order. I'd like to get that cleared this week--without dumping anything back on the floor! emoticon

I looked back to see when I created my left-side-of-the-bath-sink OO, and it was near the end of April. and it's still THERE!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am thrilled to pieces!!! My little "multi-color'd oasis" is still holding the place, and I'm loving it. I'm starting to think I might want to create another - but am nervous and just a bit anxious. hmmmmmm...... emoticon

The kitchen is doing better, *and* I put some boxes back in the balcony storage closet. (Not sure why I took them out--maybe when I was pulling out holiday boxes, so they've just been stacked in the living room. Now they are gone--except for one I'm actively going through, sorting through old papers, most of which are going in recycling.

I've been losing ground working on 3 applications in the same week. I don't want to attempt this many at the same time again! This last one is due tomorrow at noon. So I'll try to get some cleaning done once it's submitted. Of course it would be nice to get out in the glorious weather and /or get some exercise, too!

I reported a while back - one week? two weeks? it's all a blur - that I created an "official" OO on the left side of my bathroom sink. I'm am oh-so-pleased to report emoticon that it's still there!! emoticon 'Course I think the fact that I have a "placeholder" there may be the only thing saving the space - I have one of those weighted centerpiece thing-y's there...you know, the closest thing I could get to an oasis tree emoticon from the dollar store!!

I'm very very pleased with myself!!! emoticon

Washing, drying & putting away all the heavy winter blankets & throws today. I want all signs of winter GONE,
Also, cleaned the coffee maker, microwave & emptied, rearranged my sock/underwear drawer. I found the strangest things in there like a receipt for plants purchased at Lowe's last summer and birthday cards from my 50th AND 60th birthdays! LOL

emoticon Nola--not just reducing what detracts from the comfort and appearance of the room, but adding to the beauty as well! That's some emoticon self-nurturing there! I admire and applaud your progress!!
emoticon (I figure these can be praying or clapping hands!)
I'm embarrassed but proud that I finally got all (I think) of the rest of the holiday boxes into the balcony storage closet from where they were stacked on the coffee table in the living room. Now that I'm taking a bit of a break from the active job hunting, I'd like to re-establish a bit more order around the apartment!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Updating the whole look I hope. This week was new bedding. Trying to keep a towel or blanket for keeper to keep the cat hair at a minimum. Next week I am going to clean off the dresser and add some color accents for the top.

Nola, where or what is your bedroom OO--or do you mean the whole room? emoticon

emoticon on a week of maintenance, Mary! And I can confirm that bathroom counter OO: I witnessed it last Sunday on play day! emoticon

I finally got my stovetop OO back today-- emoticon

I've done nothing on the OO front in forever! I left the team goal on my page, but just skipped it month after month after month....

Well, ta-dah!! emoticon I created an OO on the left side of my bath counter a week ago, and it's STILL there!!! I actually checked off 'maintain an OO' for 7 straight days. I want to tackle the right side also - I straightened it some when OO-ing the left side, but don't want to bite off too much. Babysteps, babysteps......

I hear you on the babystepping, Becca! And I'm glad you have somebody to help, Nola.

I'm mostly maintaining my progress, though when I'm actively working on an application, things can start to slide. It's one of the reasons I really hope to find something soon--I'd like to focus the energy that's currently going into job hunting into other areas of my life!

Still baby stepping my way to organization. Will be working on closets this weekend.

I had packed to move, but had to put it on hold. The health insurance is really good in this state. Hence, I am unpacking certain items and getting rid of what I can. Someone can use this clothing. I keep on telling myself that I don't need that much anymore. It just gets dusty anyway, when one has too much.

Hope all is well with all of you!

Hope to be here more. Been thinking of you and sending warm happy vibes your way, whether I am online or not! :)

Try harder--in everything that you do!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

emoticon Nola!

I hear you, Leslie!

I may only have put the paper piles that were on the couch and the living room floor in a box, but it feels better--even though they haven't been dealt with permanently yet. But at least I could take a nap on the couch (all that sunshine made me sleepy!) without dumping a bunch of stuff on the floor first!

I wouldn't call my balcony an OO yet, but it looks much better than it did! Dirt swept up, old potting soil bags and other trash removed. I've been keeping my kitchen cleaner this week, which makes me feel better, since I'm in there every day.

I am in the process of reclaiming my email inbox as an OO. I have been overwhelmed these past few days and went from my usual half page of emails to 3 full pages. It has been a struggle because each time I took care of one email, it seemed that 2-3 would replace it! emoticon

Hey Jamie....I'm not currently subscribing to any magazines, but DH is - and he uses those cardboard magazine holders - one per 'zine. I'm not sure what kind of pattern you're talking about. If it's sewing patterns, they'd fit in some of those magazine holders, or in a hanging file folder, or an accordion file. Just some thoughts...... emoticon

The shopping after work pushed everything late, so I'm not sorting papers tonight, but I do want to work my way through the sticky-noted groups and figure out what I actually want to keep--then put them away!

Paper clutter... Ugh!!!

I did manage to clear the dining room table. We even had friends over for dinner last night. It was nice to eat at the table.

Now, I do have to fo about an hour's worth of shredding / filing / recycling, later today!

Is it me or does it seem to be a trend that papers are our trouble spots. I have been 2 days sorting papers. I'm getting a lot thrown away but where to put the keepers are a problem for now. I do file my bills but like magazines and patterns are difficult and don't file well.

Jamie, I just love maintaining my OOs--though it's distressingly easy to let certain ones slip away. I do try to notice and give myself credit for the ones I'm keeping clear, with a little out-loud emoticon or Go Me! emoticon

I hear you, Mel! I started sorting through piles and stacks of mail, now in many piles on my couch & living room floor (there go those OOs! emoticon ), but I hadn't set aside my tax documents when they came. I've done it other years, but totally missed this time. emoticon

When I didn't find it in the stacks from the hallway cubes, I cleared off the desk pile--not there. Found what I needed on the dining table and was able to get the taxes finished on the almost empty desk. So after a bit of filing, I should have a desktop OO again, but couch, floor (in front of the couch--guess where I was sitting and sorting?), & table will take longer. I really want to work on these, and find a way to deal with mail & papers and not let them pile up!

Blessed Be, Amanda
