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

After I finally got around to my shower, I took out a bag of garbage, then took the 3 cardboard boxes from my deliveries this week to the recycling room. It's good to have them all out of my front hall. emoticon

I bought a little heater yesterday so I feel a little warmer now. My helper had packed many of my books and it depressed me so much so I am moving those still in the shelves and spreading them out so I still have them in sight. Funny about that. I cleaned Keepers area and am going to pack up a few more things in the kitchen.

Cleaned litter box before going to work. Had a long talk with a dear coworker about some heavy stuff for almost an hour after work.

Found directions to a little post office just a few blocks from my doctor appt tomorrow, so I'll go afterward and get some things in the mail--maybe all that remains! Yay!

I had to think and think for something I did besides finish my application--and I remembered I had a nice talk with a new employee about wellness, taking a long-range approach, babysteps, and Spark People: that was positive!

I am a little disappointed. My helper spent the time packing and not cleaning and annual inspection is tomorrow so I guess I will spend the afternoon cleaning. emoticon We did go and get some boxes from CC. I miss them so much.

Did a lot yesterday--dishes, supplements, put all the groceries away, litter box, trash & recycling. Good thing, since this app has a *lot* of writing to do! I may not get a lot done over the next few days--though today I did straighten a little mess in the dining area that had been driving me nuts!

I read 4 short books yesterday to add to my Goodreads goal and am now just 43 books from reaching that goal. I packed a few boxes and will do so again today. Food Stamps tomorrow! I am also clearing out my Kindle so that makes me feel good even if it doesn't show to the public eye.

I did 3 sessions of 5 minutes with the kitchen timer on an old box of papers/mail from years ago. Shredding some, recycling, and filing a bit. Slow work, but I got through a little bit!

With cooking and using up food in various containers, did dishes a few times today! And scrubbed the stovetop twice--looking nice for tomorrow!

Cleaned the kitchen and put the dishes on to wash. I cleaned Keepers box and packed two boxes for moving. I am catching up on my Sparking and eliminating books from my Kindle that I have read and don't want save and some I am finally eliminating because I know I won't read them.

Finally finished hanging up clothes from my wash on Tuesday. I will do the litter box and then call it good as the Grand doggies are coming back for a bit tonight. I am going to focus on getting ready for the move now. I want out of here and to begin the next phase of my life.

Got a number of little things done at work & informed my supervisor on what didn't get accomplished. I've also pointed out things that haven't yet been reassigned--either they'll get done, or they won't, but I have reminded them, so they can choose now.

I caught up on chores today--laundry, litter box, groceries. Feeling a bit more focused, much less exhausted. This is good!

I packed two boxes today and went to look at the building where I wan to move to. My helper took me to the laundry mat and I was able to get everything washed. I am ready for this move and look forward to getting it done.

Good luck with your applications, Nola!

I got a LOT of errands done yesterday morning: bank, shoe store, stationery store, post office, pharmacy and grocery store.
In the afternoon I took my friend to do her shopping... emoticon

Have a emoticon day everyone!

I'm keeping good thoughts for you with your applications!

I got all the dishes done tonight, and will get to bed a little earlier than usual. Oh, and I put a card that was ready to mail last night into my purse after work, so I will take it with me in the morning, and get it in the mail stream!

My housekeeper brought boxes today and I am going to start packing boxes. I will be putting in applications to new places and hope that I will find a new place soon.

I got a lot done this morning before my housekeeper came, including cleaning the litter box, stripping the bed, sorting and pre-treating the laundry. Now it's time for my nap! emoticon

As I've been making my pot of soup, I've also washed and trimmed veggies for other dishes and purposes.

Vacuuming always improves how everything looks--though I don't get to it often!

That's really nice of you to give such a nice piece of furniture now!

I've cleaned the litter box and will now make a big salad with a lot of veggies I need to use. emoticon

I read two books last night and did reviews so I am getting closer to being on track for my Goodreads goal for the year.
I am going to begin cleaning my Armoire and discarding much that is stored there. I want my youngest and his wife to have it now and have a chance to enjoy it. I bought it the year before I was married 45 years ago. Although my marriage ended 20 years ago this has always been a part of the children's home and should go to one of them. It is beautiful and they love it. Time to get started! Where are those boxes!

I am trying to get my mind into moving mode. I am going to contact my children and tell them to plan to pick up the Armoire that they want of mine for their Christmas present. I just don't want to move it again. It is 50 years old and very pretty but it is time.
Decisions are much easier this time as I am ready for a place that doesn't run on what whims the managers mood for the day is. The gossip is incessant and I am so tired.
Ready to downsize again and get on with life. emoticon

I wash my bras in a mesh bag, and hang them to dry - I believe it's the dryer which causes them damage. Some of my bras are quite old...

My energy also disappears quickly at the end of the day. I wish I could get a decent sleep, but at least I can nap when necessary. emoticon

Yes, since I started handwashing my bras some years back, they seem to hold up better. I also have some nylon trouser socks that I don't put in the machine. As long as I wash out a couple every 2 or 3 days, I keep up.

I got some of my clothes and most of the groceries put away, then my energy took a nose dive. I'll be headed to bed pretty soon. Take care, all!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Amanda, you seem to do a lot of handwashing! I only have a couple of things that need to be washed by hand.

Today I have cleaned the litter box, and when Simon settles down, I will fill my dosette. I don't care for his 'help'! emoticon

Took it easy today after working for 6 days straight. Did dishes and a little handwashing, a little ST, and worked on the OM application.

So happy to hear about all your progress ladies!

When I got home today, I set some handwashing to rinse, did dishes and after a big salad for dinner, strained the veggie stock, so will be able to make a big pot of soup this weekend--which for me will be Sunday and Monday. Then I caught up with Sparking. I'm determined to do my part to help us rise out of 198th place!

I also had my housekeeper clean under my bed this week - there was a LOT of dust!

Today my positive is that after weeks of sleeping only 3-5 hours, I had to have 3 naps in a row because I was so sleepy! emoticon

emoticon Amanda!
My helper was here today to do the floors. She even got on the floor and used the vacuum hose under the bed. She told me how comfortable she is in coming here and how much she enjoys it! emoticon
I went with a friend to get commodities yesterday and was able to find the paperwork I needed right away as it was filed in the proper envelope! emoticon
Because I keep my OO's and have cut back on clutter my helper is able to get to those places that have been hard for me to clean like under the bed. I usually have the basics done so she is excited to do the hidden spots. emoticon

I haven't yet done anything useful today, but I will soon be cleaning Simon's litter box, and then I have an appointment and an errand, so I will be out today.

Have a emoticon day!

Emailed Katie re schedule changes, did a little ST, did a little cover letter planning, made vegetable stock w/ veggie trimmings and extra seasoning from dry soup packets (I use 1/2 to 2/3 and save the rest in a little container, then add to my veggie stock!)

For the second night in a row, I've been able to check 3 small to-dos that I listed in the morning. Tonight was writing my therapist with a question & request, doing a little ST, and tidying some small OOs. I squeezed in veggie prep for work in the morning, and also put away the last of the clean laundry--which hadn't even made it on the to-do list!

I finished the shelves today with the help of my helper. I have about 150 Harlequins to get rid of. Next is to start reading!
The apartment looked very nice after all the books were put away. I guess my Babysteps are working!
