Printed off the job announcement for the lateral position I learned about yesterday. Got groceries, put them all away. Got to the library before they closed to return and pick up books.

I've been doing pretty well prepping healthy food for work ahead, and not leaving it all till he morning. Plus I cleaned the old litter box. I'd like to do it every day consistently, but I haven't made it a habit yet.

Sounds like a plan, Nola!

I cleaned the stovetop, washed some dishes, hung up some hand washing & prepped part of tomorrow's lunch this evening.

I have some books sitting around again. A friend sent some to me by my helper who helped my friend clear out her cabinets. I am gradually finding homes for them. There is another book sale on the 27 but I am thinking I may skip it.
I washed linen today including my comforter. I can feel a flare of fatigue coming on so I am glad that all is in order.
Tomorrow we are expecting snow again so I will just stay inside and read and cuddle with Dori.

It's so wonderful to find that right "fit"! Hoping it works out!

I cleaned Dora's box today--as I promised her this morning, since it was overdue!

We took Keeper to the vet this morning and he crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 11:00. I took a nap because he and I did not sleep well last night.
I cleared out his box and toys and towels and blankets.
I swept and mopped the kitchen and took the trash out. I did 2 loads of laundry and vacuumed.
Wishing you all a good night. emoticon

Got gas and groceries (Costco--where I also got ink cartridges for my printer, Safeway & TJs), dropped off donations, returned library books and picked up DVD on hold. Prepped supplements. Wrote a card to a friend, sent a sympathy email to a cousin. Oh, and planned my outing, like I described in the Success thread.

Pictures are hung and the apartment really looks cozy. I am loving the small area and how easy it is to navigate.
I have completed one mini challenge on Goodreads and starting another. I have 4 going at once.
I have a few more things to finish and then my home will be complete. I have some items I want to shop for in the next few months so it will keep motivated to keep things neat and tidy.

Flurry of calls in late afternoon between dentist offices, even went by the old one after work to be sure they got the signed release for records, and would email them to the new office. I don't want to have to reschedule!

I have been overwhelmed the past few days. Sis and I are ill. Today, as I was fixing breakfast, I multitasked and straightened the whole kitchen laundry area...folded clothes, cleaned counters, cleaned dishes. I feel better now. We had poached eggs, toast, and ham...yum!

So happy to hear about all the positives, Renita and Nola! (Even if it takes me a few days to reply, sometimes! emoticon )

Cleaned the litter box early this evening--that seems to help. And I did some abs exercises while I was down on the floor after playing with Dora. Finding the best time to do some of these activities or routines can help me be more consistent.

Nola emoticon with the others please take care of yourself. Sometimes as women we forget to do this. Sorry that they are charging you to clean the carpets. Some people!

Amanda that is great that you cleaned the emoticon litter box. I am so thankful that my kitty goes outside. I am especially glad to read that you are going to get a massage. You need to take care of yourself. emoticon

I myself made a healthy dinner that everyone in my family enjoyed. My daughter and I bundled up my grandson and we went walking (2 miles) to the fruit stand to buy produce yesterday. Oh and I received an email that my Spark tracker is was sent out this morning. I can't wait to receive it because I feel that it will hold me more accountable.

I hope everyone has a emoticon Thursday. Stay positive my friends.

I got the litter box cleaned at last--missed a day or two. And I got a massage therapist's contact info and sent an email asking about making an appointment for a massage--I think I really need one, and can afford it now.

I'm so glad you are away from those toxic people! And emoticon on all the unpacking!

I got my ST done as soon as I finished playing with Dora after coming home today. While I was still on the floor, I just rolled over and did my abs routine!

As I was wiping off my kitchen OOs tonight, I realized I'm developing a real sense of "Oh no I'm not going to let that sit there, I'm clearing off this OO right now!" I'm getting a real sense of satisfaction, which will help me maintain--because I really like the results!

Went to the apartment for the final walk through today. The apartment was perfectly clean including washing the baseboards and she is charging me for cleaning the carpet for the next tenant. It is required by law that they do this but are putting it on me because there was nothing else to charge me for.
I only have 12 more boxes to unpack except for books which fill an entire closet,

emoticon job, Renita, on accomplishing so much!

Glad the apartment is coming together, Nola, but emoticon with Leslie, please be careful and not overdo! It's good you had plenty of emoticon to stayed entertained between unpacking sessions!

I got fruit and salad extras prepped for tomorrow's lunch--it saves me a little time in the morning, the more I do the night before. And I'm prepping my supplements right now. Then I'll do some dishes before calling it a night.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Nola, if you are having breathing issues, please be careful with all the work you are doing to get settled.

I'm sorry your cat has to go to the vet - can that be postponed?

Enjoy your new apartment!

I am in the new apartment and taking the unpacking slowly. I am having some breathing issues. I am so glad to have the internet and cable working although I did have access to plenty of reading material for the last three days and plenty to do.
The bathroom and bedroom are set up and ready to enjoy. the kitchen will take longer and the living room is about half done.
Keepers box is half done and we take him to the vet tomorrow. Have great day!

Good job on preparing snacks for the next few days Amanda. emoticon

I was able to fold a few loads of laundry, clean up my garage (it was so messy there was no room to walk in there) and put away Christmas stuff in designated tubs.

What beautiful sharing, Renita, thank you! They say that regular expressions of gratitude helps you attract more good things into your life. I don't know if that's true, but it improves my mood to acknowledge the positive things in my life.

Just so you know, we have a gratitude thread ("What are you grateful for?") in the General Discussion Forum under the chat, point spin and OO threads. This is where we usually brag on ourselves, sharing a positive step we've taken. (Also known as tooting our own horn emoticon )

While cooking up my soup tonight, I chopped veggies and filled containers for a couple days of healthy snacks at work.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I am thankful for the wonderful family that I have. My husband who was so understanding when I stayed 2 days in the hospital to take care of my sister and her baby, my daughter who made sure to pack Lalo's lunch for school, drive him to and from school and cook dinner, my son Gordo for helping Lalo with his homework and comforting him when I was gone.

I am blessed to have witnessed the birth of my niece and get to have that bonding time with my sister and my niece. My sister is a great mother and now she will know what it is like to have a daughter who becomes your best friend.

I am grateful that while I may have pain in my body and the doctors aren't sure what is causing it, I am still able to move around.

Glad you are recharging those batteries, Leslie! emoticon

I woke up early today (5:30) and took a 2-hour nap myself ~ 12:30. I got lots of holiday packing up as described elsewhere, but just cleaned the litter box also. Oh, and I vacuumed a little area of rug near the kitchen where I want to create a new floor OO. I was getting real frustrated stepping or reaching over junk I had let stack up there.

I'd like to get a little intentional movement in, even if just a few minutes of stretching. I've been moving around the apartment, but also sitting a lot.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I cleaned the litter box just now, and took the holiday decorations off the bedroom window and the front door--wreath outside and bells inside. I also found a few gift tags and a pair of earrings that didn't get into their respective boxes.

Clearing and cleaning today! Finishing up last minute laundry. I am not too far from having everything packed up. We will load one van tonight and my friend will bring it to the apartment tomorrow. I will also be going with a friend tomorrow morning to sign the lease and take a car full of things.
My son went through his surgery yesterday and was looking well last night in the pictures I was sent.
I will be so happy to get moved and be warm. emoticon

Filled my medication box for the next week. I have packed up the kitchen and cleaned what I can. I found out today that the people who were going to move me have other commitments that have come up. I may have to store my furniture at a neighbors until I can get a some more help.

I finished taking the decorations off the tree, took it out to the dumpster, and packed up a holiday box of cards, ribbons, gift tags and stickers. I'm attempting to have the boxes more sorted and well marked, so I can find things easily next year.

I also spent the unpleasant time visiting my neighbor who said she didn't have my package, tracking it on the UPS & USPS websites, reporting it mis-delivered, then complaining to B&N, who will kindly reship. I was not a happy camper through all that, but I got it done.

Be careful! We want you well!
I did put the groceries away and made some tuna salad for lunch. I am now enjoying a new herbal tea, Blackberry vanilla. It is a little tart but good.
I visited with a neighbor and finished my first book of the year. So far no snow but it may just be delayed.
I joined the 30 day Small Changes Challenge. I just checked the radar and snow has started. It is going to be very cold again.
Stay warm!

I bought a few journals yesterday to keep my book challenges straight. I want to write in them the books that I am reading and be able to keep them for the future.

Time to get out and about and pay some bills before the storm hits tomorrow. Did a lot of cleaning in the kitchen yesterday. I need to buy a 2015 calendar and decide on what colors I want for decorating in the new apartment.
I am going to start on the bathroom next and put all things in a box and begin the deeper cleaning.

I carried out my Southern tradition (from my few years spent in Texas 30 years ago!) of fixing special foods for the holiday, then my private tradition of a holiday tarot reading. I also got an email from a dear friend and did some catching up--always sweetly satisfying to connect with a sister of the heart!

I am up, showered and dressed. I hope that this constitutes my positives for the day. Keeper is so funny. He heard the phone ring and I was asleep. When I answer that is his cue to come to the bed. He purrs and snuggles and walks over me a few times. I finish my phone call and he keeps up his loving annoyance. I get up knowing he probably wants his food and then is I come back to bed ready to crawl back in. He comes in jumps on the bed and gets in my place and looks at me before I can get back in. I know that he is wanting in my place so I pull the fleece sheets up and make him a little nest and he lays down and gives me a look of triumph. I have passed my training! Good Girl! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Leslie I hope that your back is better soon. Back pain involves your whole body. My thoughts are with you today. Stay warm and rest!
Laundry is in the dryer. Dishwasher just finished. Keeper is taking his morning nap.
The move has been approved and I will be moving on January 9-10.
I am pretty organized through this move so hoping everything will fit in the apartment! emoticon to all.

Waiting for a final confirmation from the Management company on my move. My plan now is to put a box in each room to use to throw the essentials in at the last minute to move from one home to the other.
I have about 2 boxes of packing left in each room. I look forward to these being the last few days of my residence here.

I have cleaned up Simon's area in the kitchen, and cleaning the litter box will be next. emoticon

I just finished packing another box of books. I have cleaned Keepers box and area in the bathroom. I did some more wiping down and cleaning in the kitchen. I am so ready to be out of here!

I got myself, my gifts & food contributions down to my sister's in good time, even leaving the rainy freeway and going half the distance on the old highway (with traffic lights). Since getting back, I've cleaned the litter box, spiffed my OO, put a few things away.

one load of laundry done, litter box done and two more boxes of books packed. I am feeling better today. I also found my fitbit charger so I can wear my fitbit again. emoticon

I got quite a few things put away and tossed out yesterday. I finally got dressed and outside today when I took out trash and recycling. I did dishes and finished wrapping my gifts to take tomorrow to DS and BIL's.

I'm glad the coworker who had been sick was there today, so I could give her gift to her before Christmas.

I just cleaned the litter box, which is all the energy I have for tonight! A quick bite, then bed, even with my 2-hour nap this afternoon.

2 more unit gifts handed out, just one left (she's been out sick, hope she'll make it in tomorrow).

At home, cleaned litter box, washed dishes.

At work, gave out 4 of my unit gifts to the folks that were there (3 to go) & dropped the last holiday cards into the mailbox on my first walking break.

At home, cleaned the litter box.

Got down to Mary's on time despite the rain, and remembered to hand-deliver her cards and the 2 for the aunties--saving 3 stamps!

Fingers and toes crossed, Nola!

Remembered to mail the Oregon cards today. Also placed a call to clarify dental benefits, as I want to change dentists, and needed some help.

Received an email that they received the email from my therapist and and asking me when I wanted to leave!
I have a call in to the other apartment building and hope to hear soon. I am so excited to be able to do this. My son has surgery on January 7 for a fibrillater and stints in his legs. Please remember him in your prayers.
11 books to go to the Goodreads goal and 13 days. I now have more days than books left to read. emoticon

Wishing you the best, Nola.

I finished my Oregon cards to mail tomorrow. That will leave Washington to mail, plus some to hand-deliver. Getting done in my babystepping fashion!

I am so cold. We have another really cold front coming through. I am glad that I finally have a small heater to add to my heat here. I am expecting my helper who will be bringing my commodities soon. I am going to try to do my therapy appointment by phone as my pain levels are too high to be out.
I am going to try to do a few more things around here this weekend and hope that I have enough quarters to do another load of laundry.

It's good you are aware of what is bothering you about seeing your things out & not packed away, Nola. Moving is stressful in many ways.

I cleaned Dora's box, got most of the groceries put away, and have been plugging away at the holiday tasks--mailing cards and letters at present.

Cleaned Keepers box, 1 load of laundry is now drying. I packed a few more boxes yesterday and possible a few more today. I read and reviewed another book today. I am now only 22 books from my Goodreads goal. I hope that I can make it as it seems so important to me now. emoticon emoticon
