Well, in spite of the spirit being willing, the body just wasn’t up to a kitchen clean today. However I got LOTS done! Or rather, Bekah got lots done and I helped.
All my laundry is done. That’s a huge one with a bad back and no washer and dryer hookups in this apartment.
The shelves got up up in the bedroom! Not decorated yet, but they are there!
The worktable over the bed was brilliant, but it got put up and then just stayed there. Finally got it cleared off and taken down, to be replaced only when I’m doing a project, and only until I get a work area elsewhere.
A freshly made bed! With my new sheets. Heaven!
Tried the discount brand haircolor to touch up my roots. Worked as expected, barely. But it will get me to the next month I think.
Did get the bed done, which was kind of major. The cats were thrilled, all four curled up and cohabitated. I even had a decent nights sleep…or rather, morning. So I’m starting my day with a picture of what I got done.
May not look like much, but when you spend as much time in bed as I have to, it’s major!
OK, Fridge cleaning time. I did wipe off the white boards already. Here goooooeeessss!
I found a candy bar! Incentive!
Well today’s Cure is to plan a party for the end of the month, I’m going to skip that and keep working on the kitchen. That clean fridge oasis in the middle of my chaos is just too wonderful!
Today I”m starting with a quick clean on my counters, because they got major cluttered with everything going on, and I need the space to put things while I clean drawers and cabinets. So decision time. My first step, Simply doing a Belongs Here, Belongs Elsewhere sweep. I don’t worry where Elsewhere is, just put everything in a box and sort it as I get to the other rooms later.
MUCH LATER: Since the beautiful Bekah worked today, my kitchen is much further along. And this listing idea is making it much easier for me to communicate what my priorities are. If I’m scattered and all over the place, I can’t very well tell her what I need done. Now once I know it isn’t something to do myself, it goes on the Bekah list. Loooving this.
So here are the before pictures. I’ll post the after as they happen
To be fair, my stove isn’t usually this cluttered. The counter next to it is, but I’m working from the door around to the other end, so the counter clutter had to move to the stove to make room to unload the fridge.
