Did several timer sessions organizing my receipts to track--highlighting the date and amount to enter, or when different categories are represented, figuring out how much was spent in each section.

I created a new OO on Sunday in the kitchen trash area. I knew I wanted to work on the floor clutter blocking the Mr. Cart units. Then before starting on my taxes yesterday, I cleared the top of the tiny dining table. I was also sorting mail, looking for that dang IRS PIN number--and I remember seeing it come, but I didn't file it in a safe place.( emoticon )

So the clutter around the table and into the area I had started to clear grew. So tonight after some dishes, I did a 10-minute timer session and I see some visible space and progress. emoticon Plenty more to do, but I'm making progress-- emoticon

I emptied the dish washer and loaded it. I also keep things straightened after fixing two small meals.

I had fun playing with the dogs today. Daisy got the rips. She is so much fun.

My wonderful GG co-leader posted a seasonal challenge for Spring on Spring Cleaning. It's a long post an when I saw it last night (she posted it earlier in the week), I got intimidated. But I had it in mind when I sat down with my timer to empty the 2 seltzer 12-pack boxes (on the floor near the "pantry" shelving unit that I've simply been simply retrieving cans from) onto their designated shelf. There are 5 shelves in this press-board unit, some more cluttered than others, so I emptied just ONE of them, tossed a couple things, put a few in the donations area in the hall, transferred a few to a different home, and organized what was left to make it clear what gets "homed" there. So now one of the 5 shelves is an official OO.

Washed out the litter pan and the rubber mat I put underneath it. Also scrubbed kitchen floor by hand, not mop--it's a small kitchen! I'm pretty pooped now!

I struck up a pleasant conversation with a lady at the bus stop today, while we waited for our bus. Then at home, I did some hand washing soon after getting home.

I finished washing, trimming and slicing the red, orange and yellow peppers to take to work for the chili feed fundraiser for CFD. Not sure what other sides there will be, or if there will be much that isn't high in calories. Plus they are pretty! emoticon

I cleaned out Katie's litter box yesterday and today. emoticon It's my personal goal (of our team goals) but I usually only do it about 1 or 2 times out of the week. It's easier for me to reach down to floor level than DH, so I'd like to make a more concerted effort to do it more often!! emoticon

Been keeping the main parts of the house nice. That is a big improvement for me. Working little by little on my bedroom. Things are getting better in there.

My insurance company had a drop by inspection of the outside of my home. Thank goodness I had already updated the electrical. It had been an old fashioned fuse box, which is common in that old neighborhood.

I passed with flying colors and they will continue to insure my house. That is positive!!

Getting to a couple of weekend chores that didn't get done. Prepped morning and evening supplements. Prepped coffee for morning and lunchtime (at work). I mix flavored coffee with a dark roast (espresso or Italian, primarily), in a big container for home, and in smaller jars to transport to the work fridge. Former is Pecan Pie flavored, latter is Sticky Bun flavored. emoticon

I did laundry for the past two days. So much backed up, mainly from what sis puts down in the basement. I had my own little back up too. Glad to have the laundry in the house.

Got to a cleaning project I've wanted to undertake for months--to clean the fan plate/grill in the bathroom ceiling. I could see there was lint or dust up there. And sure enough, when I got up on my little step ladder/stool, and managed to pry the metal grate (?) off, the little fan unit was CAKED in semi-hardened dust!

I washed the grate piece with one of my recycled/cleaning toothbrushes and set it outside to air dry. Then I got my hand washing tub and held it underneath to catch the dust and sediment and keep it off me the best I could, while brushing away with my handy toothbrush. I may not have gotten everything, but I got a lot! Toweled the remaining moisture off the grate and replaced it. And I just swept off the 2 ladder steps before putting it away in its little slot next to the fridge.

emoticon Not real difficult, but it took effort, and I'm glad it's done! emoticon emoticon

While searching for a particular email from a couple months ago, I deleted about 50 emails. Of course, I still have over 4800 in my inbox, but I purged a few! Now if I would just do that more often than once every few months!

I just cleaned Katie's litter box....DH has been mostly doing it, and he's not feeling great, so I want to remember to share the duty. AND it's been a personal goal for a while, so I can go check it off!! emoticon

I walked the dog today even with shingles pain. It is starting to feel better.

I emptied the dishwasher and rinsed the dishes.

I emptied and recycled some boxes.

I may be up to cleaning my bed too.

I'm pleased that I got the 3 St. Patty's Day cards going the farthest (APO-Turkey, Hawai'i and Tennessee) into the mail today, and I just finished 3 going down to California (from WA state). Tomorrow I'll prep the ones to Oregon and Washington, then the ones being hand-delivered to coworkers.

Hoping it helps! I got a few items put away. Not much of an overall dent, but I wanted to get some of my 3 Ss done after work. I did PT for my knees for ST, and a 2nd S with the sorting.

After 2 days of bed rest I decided I had to move. I was out of TP so I walked to the store and home, did some dishes which Marcia finished, cleaned Dori's box, took out the trash then used the TENS unit for an hour on different areas.

Hoping that 24-hour bug didn't overstay! Feeling better? How's the dog?

I got some much-needed cleaning done as well as a bunch of errands. One of those was a Costco grocery run, and afterwards chopped & froze the large tub of mushrooms emoticon and trimmed the peppers emoticon , chopping & freezing a few, though most I left in trimmed sections to slice & add to salads or eat raw w/ dip.

I reached the 600 books read on Goodreads last night. I have been there about 3 years maybe just a bit more. I am proud of this because most of those also have reviews attached. I have read some that have not been on the list but seeing that number is fun.
I did some shopping today too and found the pictures that my helper is going to help me hang tomorrow.

I clean Dori's box daily. She is quite the princess and will lead me to the box if thinks it needs cleaning and I have not done it. I have cleared off around my recliner of all of the things I saved from the closet. There is not much but it is put away in new homes now.
