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.

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

Blessed Be, Amanda

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

Chair marching has been wonderful for me. I finally have my kitchen clean again. I had a migraine on Wednesday and it put me off track on everything. I am working at clearing mail off of the table and clearing my recliner side table.

I was showing Mary how I've kept the little magazine table top clear since I moved it a few feet from my recliner for better clearance when our friend (former stepmom) visited last month. Mary remembered that's been 4 weeks--probably the longest I've kept a single OO for getting cluttered!

Can't remember now if I did 2 or 3 15-minute sessions of mostly old mail near the dining table. I'll soon empty the first of 2 stacked box lids filled with papers on the floor. Once those are gone I'll start on a stack of 2 or 3 boxes next to the table. It's slow going, and I know I'll eventually need to go through and purge the files where I'm putting some of this stuff, but it's all part of the current project of clearing floor space in dining and living room areas. Wish me continued motivation and progress, please!

Blessed Be, Amanda

I want to remember to check and see when they are in my area, since I can drive, and have little time for shredding--and my poor little one sometimes overheats when I run it too long.

Katie mentioned community shredding days sponsored by the Attorney General's Office; I need to check it out. Do you have anything similar? I assume they have large industrial shredders made available to citizens to protect against identity theft.

I cleared a small spot on the floor. I decided I want to open up more floor space, so will alternate between paper sorting--which is grueling for me--and some bigger stuff that can change the look of an area a bit faster.

The books are all sorted out and I rehomed and discarded about 100 books. I still have many more but everything is on hold until the medical issues are figured out.
The stove is in and the kitchen cleaned. Dori's box is cleaned.
My shredder is broken and any more shredding will done next month after I have a new shredder.

I really do want to figure out the pattern (like discovering your emotional or environmental triggers for overeating or drinking) of what I doing or not doing that leads to these piles that repeatedly accumulate.

Also, what habits or routines will help that are not too hard to maintain.

Oh, that's the question, Janice! I'm actually considering playing with a spreadsheet for mail, tracking what comes when and what I do with it, and what the issues are to *deciding* what to do with it. Because figuring out why clutter keeps building, and why it creeps back over and over may be an important element in breaking the pattern--what I've started calling yo-yo de-cluttering.

emoticon Job Amanda! I am spending the day doing book things. My apartment is even more covered with books that before. I have eliminated about 50 books from my own stash so far today and updated the books in the community shelves. The kitchen is looking good and I just keep finding new things and new places. We can do this!

As I mentioned in the FYIF thread, I moved the little magazine table (I use the shelves to hold books and journals, and the top has containers of bookmarks & pens, tissues, and my reading glasses--it's my most consistent OO) to make it easier to get by my recliner and over to the couch, for last weekend's visit by Mary and our friend (& former stepmother), Linda. I thought I would move it back, but I like having more space, and don't mind getting up and taking a step to get my glasses or grab some journaling pens.

So I kept it clear on top except for the items that belong for a couple weeks now, but the new location is like a new OO, that allows for better flow in terms of moving around the apartment--not the tight squeeze or turning sideways to get through a too-narrow gap. emoticon

I *finally* got the stovetop cleared off and wiped down last night. I realized it would mean a lot more in the morning if I scrubbed it clean after I put everything away. I was right, it was great to see my little OO with its dollar store palm tree sitting there this morning!
emoticon In fact, I just ran into the kitchen and cleared two things off the stove from my salad making for dinner, and wiped up the tomato juice that squirted when I chopped them. emoticon So now it will look all pretty for tomorrow! emoticon

Before & After! I'm not sure how to put 2 pictures together in one, so, sorry if this takes up a lot of room. I'm pretty proud of myself!






LOL! Not sure why they are sideways nor do I know how to fix it!

I've finally caught up with a bit of cleaning. Dishes get all done more often--an empty sink looks good! emoticon

Sometimes the stove is all clean, I cleared off the sofa and the bathroom counters are much improved as well.

Desk, table and floor are the next big (and seemingly never-ending) projects.

I have been dealing with so much fatigue that I have done very little. I caught up on the dishes this morning and picked up the living room.

Today I recovered my family's shoe storage area, putting the shoes in their cubbies (too often they get left in front of the cubbies). I matched the pairs, dusted out the cubbies, and swept, as well as putting the shoes the kids outgrew in the donation bags.

It only took a few minutes, but I feel ridiculously proud of myself. emoticon
