NWME4EVRMARYANN,
If you see my message below yours, it is exactly the same as yours. I got rid of one pile of paperwork but I still have a pile in a kitchen cabinet, one bedroom, and a box in the basement. Now you would think if paperwork is sitting in a box in the basement the whole thing could just go. But not with my anal paperwork attitude. I have to look at everything in case there might be something important in there (LOL) or I see receipts from 1977 and I am in awe that I've had the item so long.
So this is my main objective right now besides doing the daily things like dishes, washing clothes, etc.

Today, I am going to work on the piles of paper on my
ottoman, and two end tables. I keep saying I am going
to do it but it never gets done. So, today is the day.
Also, going to vacuum my bedroom.

I'm still working on the darn paperwork as my major goal and organizing my bedroom.
Yesterday, emptied dishwasher, filled dishwasher and ran it. Washed and dried some dishes by hand plus put away. I made a pot roast in the slow cooker. It was really tender.
Today, more paperwork and bills.
Finish bedroom.
Work at my friend's women's consignment store from 5-8.

I have 2 goals for this month.

My goals are to clean, declutter,
and organize the kitchen "complex"
and my office..

The complex is the kitchen, dining room,
short hall, and laundry room. I have gone
through the kitchen and DR before, but it
needs to be done again. The office is
my room of chaos I worked on it in Jan, but
it is a long way from being done

I have washed all the kids clothes and we weeded out a bag that was too small for them.
I did the dishes and cleaned the cat box. Dh will put up a curtain rod hanger that is falling off.

During the month of January, my family and I organized and purged all the the junk from half of our basement. We turned the area into a workout space...painted the walls and the floor to give the area a fresh look. Feels good to have all that 'stuff' gone! Plus we are regularly working out. Great start to the year.

I've been quiet on this thread, because I have done little besides keeping up with the must dos. Yesterday I collected and bagged recycling, washed the towels and bed linens, prepared and mailed the HOA assessment letters (my neighbors will love that), and ran errands to the bank, post office, and grocery store. This afternoon, DH said he will go with me to ST with my trainer. Hope he keeps his word and doesn't have some convenient crisis that gets in the way.

HUYANA_PHOENIX, mayonaise!!! Yikes. Sounds like an odd internet tip made your friend NUTS. Hope you find the right product to remove it now.

I'm tackling a shopping project today--want to order two new chairs for our dining room. Have to pick out fabric and select the chair. Long time idea I hope to move along today.

My roommate heard somewhere that you can use mayonnaise for cleaning. I had scoured about 1/4 of the kitchen surfaces, with intentions of continuing to do more later. (I just moved in recently and the place is FILTHY... so I'm doing what I can to change that, but I can only do so much at a time.) Anyway, she noticed the clean parts, told me about her mayo tip, and before I could object, she proceeded to smear mayo all over the place.

Rest assured, mayo will NOT clean your kitchen. It WILL, however, leave a gooeyer, stickier film all over than what you had to start with... In case you want to give it a try.

In a bit of a pause after completing big project. But slowly building momentum toward another. Helping my daughter put a resume together today. She's going through a bumpy time so it's a good way to be with her and help her get organized for going back to work after a break to stay home with her kids.

And it's Monday: time to make a new list of things to do!

Travelbug, I'm envious. Sounds as if you had a great time at the quilt show.

Yesterday I didn't feel like I got a lot done, but I think I did, just not beyond the usual upkeep. I ran errands (hardware store, grocery store, dry cleaner), filled the bird feeders, and tidied up the worst of the piles before DH got home from the road trip he insisted he had to take after being gone on travel for 5 days. I was not amused, but I put together a good dinner anyway and let him grill the meat when he got home, since he is much better at it than I am. Also tried a recipe for maple-glazed Brussels sprouts. They were yummy, but roasted them for a shorter time than the recipe called for because they were already too soft for my preference. We like veggies crisp-tender.

Spent another couple of hours cleaning Out paperwork. It rained so I couldn't garden.
My niece is coming to stay with us soon, maybe this weekend? So have to clear space in the office/ spare room. It is good for me to have to do this, and it will be over soon.
Since my focus sat year on the bedroom I am finding it so much easier to keep the rest of the house tidy. What is that about?
This is such a great team, keep up the good work!

Yesterday, I purposely made a lengthy, meaty to-do list and plunked it down in the Pick 3 thread, because that's a central place I visit often, and I need to get a handle on all the work projects I'm behind on and assess the extent of my procrastination. I didn't get through it all, but I did make progress on two projects, and I paid bills, registered for a conference for my walking organization,gathered info to write award nominations for walking club contributing members,decluttered my home office desk, shoveled the snow and later scraped off the slushy ice after it melted enough, made refrigerator oatmeal to bring for today's lunch, and went to a course at REI on basic bicycle maintenance.

CMRAND54 - some "surprises" are better than others! Yikes.

Desk project today and files. Have most of day to work on bailing myself out from old project and moving to new one. Can't wait. Love having the time to bring order back to my worklife.

I cleaned the family room this week after discovering that the cat had thrown up behind the TV set. Totally gross.

Busy telework day yesterday, and the projects and unplanned telcons consumed more time than expected. Then I needed to make a pass shoveling the first couple of inches of snow off the drive, entry path, and sidewalk. Will need to do that again today, but the temp is hovering around 10F, with windchill well below 0F. I did get my 30-minute walk in to make sure I hit my 10,000 steps (3 whole days in a row), and I made my refrigerator oatmeal so I would have a protein-packed, filling breakfast ready for this morning.

Snap, I had an Epsom salts bath last night too & my skin feels like velvet this morning.
In the weekend I made a new garden bed. Planted my hedge. Then it rained. So this weekend I will complete my flower bed planting. So I took the chance to declutter two huge piles of paperwork on the computer desk. Not quite done but the end is in sight. Instead of a pile of paper, my tasks are a list, and the paper is in the filing cabinet, or it is in the bin.
Boy what a difference!

Travelbug, sounds as if you are feeling better. The vertigo must have been awful! Thanks for the info about the virus, Knuckles.

Yesterday DH and I enjoyed the day off by walking 11 km in Manassas and stopping for lunch. I was proud of myself for dividing my lunch in half and saving the rest for supper. Why do restaurants make lunch meals so big?! Anyway, DH left on yet another trip, so I finished up some laundry and got the trash out. Then, since my left hip was giving me grief, I soaked in a bath of lavender Epsom salts and sipped a glass of wine.

Unloaded the dishwasher, did 2 loads of laundry..... general picking up.
Then went to a sewing group - it was nice to be able to make a mess someplace else for a change.

Today I got my MIL set up on a medical alert system. Since she is alone now (my FIL passed away Jan 5) and has a tendency to fall we thought it was a good idea.

Some paperwork and tidying up on my list for the rest of the day.

Today is home office paperwork clean up for me. Going through kids school papers, putting upcoming events and appointments on home calendar, and getting my cookie order and booth sign ups completed (I am the Cookie mom for my daughter's Brownie Troop). So thankful for this holiday!

The rest of the Christmas tree is down and the decorations are packed away. Whew! What a big job! It feels great to have the room back to normal. Today is paperwork day. Yuck. I will prevail! LOL

I'll be doing lots of filing at work today. Yesterday I vacuumed with my new vacuum that I bought myself for Christmas. Oh my goodness!! I had no idea just how much my old vacuum was not getting up.

Thanks for the info Knuckles - I'm going to look into it.
My SIL had it pretty bad and the ENT said there was something with "crystal" in her ear?
Fingers crossed that it goes away on its own.
Beautiful weather here today - but we are in a pretty bad drought here in Southern CA.

I think there is a vertigo virus going around. (and yes there is such a thing) you are the third local person I have heard about with this issue. One was so bad he had to go to the ER by ambulance

Half the tree down (I ran out of room in the garbage bin to throw the rest of the 20 year old fake tree). Ornaments put away and half the Christmas decorations. I need to finish the rest today and vacuum / dust for my daughter's sleepover party tonight. I am feeling quite pressured and overwhelmed by everything that has to get done. Still have to shovel the driveway, too. Sigh.

The sewing party sounds like so much fun! Glad your friend stuck around and helped afterward. What a good friend!

Cooking a lot this weekend, and not doing too much project work. I think I'm in post project "pause" for a day or so. Eager to get to my photos.

I had a large group of friends over today for a quilting/sewing party and we sure had a lot of fun. A very dear friend stayed until the bitter end and helped me clean everything up and put everything away. I have the dishwasher running now and then I'm done.

I got a lot of sewing done today - tasked that have been hanging over my head and I'm glad that I made progress..
