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

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.

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

I loved Mary's idea of a vacation OO, and I realized I picked one place to keep my supplement containers at the very edge of the kitchen counter where they were convenient to take to the table, but not in the way. So I counted that as my vacation OO for my team goal points.

Today, as I detailed in the chat thread, I cleaned up the whole kitty litter area, even washing the scoop, whisk broom & dust pan, and the small litter pan that holds those items. Plus I finally cleared and scrubbed the pull-out cutting board--a real clutter magnet!

I take credit daily for a small OO on my bathroom counter (one side only) daily, so get to check off the OO team goal. Well, I'm on vacation and wasn't getting any OO pts. So I straightened up my vacation bath counter and am counting that! So I'll get 3 or 4 OO credits during my vacation. emoticon Pretty smart, huh?? emoticon

I did a bit of work at the table--paid a bill and wrote, addressed, stamped and stickered 2 birthday cards. The table is mostly clear again, though I'll want to spiff it a bit more before calling it a OO!

Good job, Nola!

I got rid of a little virtual clutter tonight. I deleted 150 emails from my inbox. I used the trick of sorting by who sent them, and cleared out all the old Barnes and Nobles ads and expired coupons. I'll do that with other vendors, and groups where I signed up for a newsletter, but never got around to reading them. Just click-click-click-click-delete!

My kitchen is all cleaned. I cleaned Dori's place in the pantry and finished the dishes. the floor is swept and mopped. and the counters wiped off. I bought strainers for the sinks so that I no longer have to worry about any food going down the pipes that might have been stuck to the dishes before washing.
I have had a wonderful candle going the last few days and my apartment smells amazing.
I have several books that need to be rearranged but it may have to wait as I do not want to overdo. We have a possible inspection next week and I want things ready.

Loving to hear about everyone's progress. I got to table top in the dining nook, have more files I want to put together, plus identifying more items as pure trash/recycling with no need to keep. As my physical and emotional energy fluctuates (often due to work), I don't always feel as able to spend my 15 minutes with the timer. But then to a part of me, that feels like "letting them win" to get so draggy or dejected that I don't want to spend the time doing what *I* want to do--namely get rid of my clutter. Hmmm, I'll see what I can do with that!

Blessed Be, Amanda

My Case Manager with the Agency on Aging is where the funds for my Meals on Wheels and Home Care helper comes from. It was a good visit. They are going to provide me a bathtub chair and a good supply of Ensure in the near future.
I had a back injection and an injection for Bursitis yesterday, I had a very rough night but am feeling very much better today. I received a prescription for a new medication for a muscle relaxer to help deal with the Fibro.
The dishes are done and I am cleaning of my chair side table and bed side table.

Thanks, ladies! Sorry I haven't been here for a while. Whenever I get a flare up, I tend to disappear for a while, as it doesn't feel good to sit at the computer.

Hope everything is well with you!

I am adding my side yard to my OO of order! Got all the weeds pulled, and enjoyed the line of rose bushes nearby while doing it. It gets good sun, too-nice and warm.

My dishes are caught up and the laundry is ready to be done as soon as I am finished catching up on my Sparking. The counters in the kitchen look good and my tilapia is marinating for dinner tonight.

Becca, that's lovely! I'm glad you are enjoying your birds emoticon & flowers! emoticon

I'm doing better with the stove and cleared off my cutting board (the pull-out one that easily attracts piles!). I missed my 15 minutes on the dining table last night due to getting home late after hair cut and trying on and buying 2 tops, so I put in a double session today. Feeling good about the progress!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Stripped my side yard of weeks while sitting in a chair, as my energy is not optimal these days. So glad I did it. Found some tunnels and witnessed a mouse run down a hole. Off to the pest control I go!

Before I found the mouse, I was so happy to look over my line of blooming rose bushes. Also, I have tons of hummingbirds that feed at two feeders, and I didn't not know previously, but they are song birds! They sing all the time for me.

I was so depressed before I went outside, and feel really good now!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

My Oases of order would have to be my kitchen. I tend to leave everything I take out and dishes in the dishwasher and neglect to move stuff to clean under. It is always pretty bad. I believe because I just feel overwhelmed with the whole apt. that I kind of have this what's the use attitude. So my goal is to keep this kitchen spotless. I think if I just concentrate on this one Hot Spot for now that eventually I will be able to get and keep the whole place clean. Baby steps. emoticon (slow and steady wins the race)

On a whim, I dumped a dresser drawer out on the bed today, went through the items, tried everything on, and ended up with the majority going to the donations pile. Yes! It felt great!

My kitchen is clean thanks to my helper. I cleaned off my side table and cleaned Dori's place.
Vicki did all the floors and changed my bed. My Fibro is terribly grateful.
I am looking forward to a nice night on clean sheets.

I just wasn't keeping up while brother was here, so I'm slowly regaining ground, starting with my side table and stove. I got a little junk off the dining nook table, where I like to work; it's going to require some concerted effort.

Took a day of rest today. The shoulder that I broke last year has developed arthritis in it and I had to take some medication and take it easy today. emoticon
-My steps suffered today but I did have 5000 more steps the last 7 days that the 7 previous. I am very happy.
I did my dishes tonight and wiped down the kitchen and cleaned Dori's Place.

The dishes are done and the kitchen and Dori's place cleaned. I have a load of laundry in but my energy level is so low that will probably be it for the day. I want to also do the OO next to my chair. I wish I could change the sheets but I don't think I have enough spoons.
