Maintenance is here today to clean the HVAC unit. I think I may arrange the furniture when he is finished. I don't think I will be satisfied until I know if it works another way.

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.

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)

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 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.

Finished the laundry and took two walks outside today. I managed my 5000 steps so I am thrilled. I am heading to put my PJ's on and relax now. emoticon I did it!

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.

I cleaned my bed off-one of my fav OOOs! Then there was plenty of room for the 2 pooches. We usually sleep on the edge of the bed when the bed is cluttered. We all like to spread out!

Did the kitchen dishes-whew-what loads! Anytime I skip it for the day, I pay. I love to keep the kitchen nice, and I have a little shelf of plants over the sink which are right in front of the window! Love these little prayer spots.

I am finally doing something here. I have a load of laundry in the dryer and 2 batches of dishes done. I am setting my OO's as I was not sure where they would be.
1. The first is by my recliner as I tend to sit and read or use the kindle there and stuff accumulates. It is clear and the floor vacuumed.
2. The couch for the same reasons. I just leave stuff there.
3. My nightstand as I keep water there each night and a stack of books and a container for my power cords.
4. My kitchen sink and stove, they are just a 18 inches apart but if they are stacked with dishes the entire kitchen is a mess.
5. Bathroom floor. I try to do laundry often but have a bad habit of leaving my PJ's there. Now to get started.

You should have seen the way this one coworker left the kitchen. Dirty dishes in the sink with her old food left in it. No amount of encouraging her to do her dishes would work.

I cleaned a lot of corners today. Things are starting to look spiffy. I have to accept the fact that I will probably never have a very neat house. I just try to get it to look better. I have gotten a lot of dust bunnies up though. lol!

I'm also sorry someone would abuse a community resource like that. But then I notice that coworkers can be pretty rude about not keeping our work kitchen clean--leaving dirty dishes in the sink, not wiping up splatters and spills, taking utensils and dishes and not returning them. emoticon

As I often do, I ran and cleaned off a couple OOs, so I could report that here. It's one thing I love about these threads: they encourage me to do something so I can report it! emoticon

Nola, that's awful that someone would take so many books! We have a bench between the elevators, where people leave books (and other items) for anyone to take. I've got a lot of good books there, and when I finish reading them, I return them to the bench for someone else to read. That works well! emoticon

I have a kitchen clean still from yesterday. I will begin my new dishes for the day and wash them all up later this afternoon.
I rearranged the living room yesterday and brought my bookshelf in that I had put in the hallway. I had wanted to share my books but the first night here someone took about 40 books from the shelf and never returned them. It stressed me out so much that someone would take so many that I just finally had to bring the shelf in.
I made the bed this morning and hope to do some laundry later.

I should be set. I emoticon the kitchen this morning and cleaned Dori's box. Bed is made and I did a little vacuuming. I think I may try to do some laundry as I want to do my comforter. I also have some reading that must be done for books to be returned to the library.

That's true about physical sweeping emoticon , though I think I mentioned a "sweep" through the apartment, more like an inventory or checking to see if things are where they should be, or what needs to be returned. I wonder where that phrase to "do a sweep" comes from? Maybe the idea of sweeping things together?

I had given my self permission to skip the dirty dishes today until I saw your posts. The dishes are now washed and the stove and counters washed down. I also collected the bottles of water sitting around and took them to the fridge so I can drink them tomorrow. I often just drink a half of one and leave it them collect them each night or morning. emoticon emoticon

Congrats, Becca! One night I was exhausted, and didn't clean the stovetop, and the next morning I was disappointed, so I cleaned it off as I brewed my morning coffee. It just felt better to have my first and best OO back!

Did my dishes before going to the dentist today.

Just washed the dishes and wiped off the stove top and cabinets. Washing my dish rags and towels today so all should be in order.
I have cleaned off part of my table so it will soon be another OO done today.

Great idea, Nola! emoticon I want to e that a try, especially during the work week.

I love that I have done so well with my stovetop OO. Most days I'm keeping up with it, and I actually enjoy wiping it off, and centering my little palm tree there in celebration and acknowledgement of my actions.
emoticon
I'm not doing as well with others, and I want to cultivate the nightly sweep routine, including checking a couple of OOs each evening.

Everything was ready for the inspection today. All of the books have homes and I am enjoying how cute I feel that my apartment looks. I am trying to decide which places will be my OO's. The apartment is so small that it doesn't take long to clean and I have enough things to fill it comfortably without being crowded.
emoticon to everyone on doing so well.
I do have quite a bit of paperwork yet to deal with so I am going to start with one box and take three papers a day to deal with. This is how I originally reduced my clutter by just three things a day. I found three things a day to either rehome or throw away. It is amazing what a difference three things make.

I'm so impressed with both of you getting so much accomplished! One reason I want to back off the intense job hunt is that I want to get more done around here--and I need the energy to do it, which tends to get used up trying so hard on these application packets.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Packed away most of holiday stuff. Cleaned kitchen. cleaned backyard. Hired company to take out dead tree and trim/cable a fruit tree that fell over partially from recent windstorm-done-whew!

Dusted front part of house.

Made pork roast in crockpot BBQ style.

What a day!

It is like a warm fuzzy feeling! emoticon Amanda.
I just swept and mopped Keepers area. The last two totes have been turned into a raised perch for Keeper to watch out the window.
I am down to the last box and a half of books, approx. 35 books. I found an empty drawer that I had previously used for storage so I will be able to transfer some of the paperwork to that drawer. Almost done!

Good going, Becca & Nola! The new puppy sounds delightful, too, Becca! emoticon

I just ran into the kitchen to spiff my stovetop OO, which I had let slide last night after such a rough day. The leftover soup was cool enough to put away, and as I wiped the surface, I heaved such a sigh of relief--like "yes, finally, back as it should be." And the cool thing is it didn't feel outer-imposed, like something I should do because someone else thought I should, but totally because it makes me feel better when it's clean and uncluttered. I love that feeling of succeeding at doing something FOR ME.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Did the bath towels, thoroughly cleaned the bathroom, including wiping down one wall, did some dishes, gave the pooches all fresh water.

Mainly visited with my sis, BIL, and nephew today as they got a new puppy, and he is so cute and nice!

Cleaned out another box. I am rearranging some of my books hoping that turning them different ways will help me find more room. My kitchen is clean and things in the bedroom are put away. The apartment is so small that keeping neat is going to be a must. emoticon

Laundry has been sorted and started, dishes have been put away and I cleaned the living room but my grandson woke up and it looks like a tornado went through my house again. Once I get off Spark I will finish the kitchen.

I am about to find an end to boxes and have been establishing OO's. It feels so good to be at an end to the clutter in my living room.

I admire you both for getting so much done. I was feeling sadly like a slacker, so I reinstated my side tabletop OO by the recliner (all 1 sq.ft. of it), and moved my little dollar store palm tree there like a conquering flag. emoticon

Vacuumed the living room, den, bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and back bedroom. Mopped the kitchen/laundry room, and certain tracks in the other areas.

I bought "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of..." by Marie Kondo as Amanda said she liked it.

It is pretty interesting so far. I hope to learn a lot from it. Perhaps I should tackle my bedroom closet tomorrow?

kitchen OO's are completed as well as the bathroom. We moved my table today and I made it into my desk. I now have a new OO in the living room to work on. I have 15 regular boxes and 18 book boxes to unpack. Getting closer and loving my apartment.
