    After yesterday's crazy productivity, today just did a couple of small things:

    Found my checkbook which was missing for a few days.
    Posted and freecycled some packing paper

    I have to tell you guys that this challenge has really helped me to get stuff done. I would always get so overwhelmed, but just doing a couple of things at a time has been great - it's really worked. I tell myself, OK just do this or just do that, but once I get going I usually end up doing more anyway. It was so good to wake up today and start the work week with clean bathrooms, laundry done, etc.

    Let's see - yesterday, not too much:

    Salt in softener
    Scooped litter

    Today:
    Get cat food & litter
    Empty dishwasher
    Fill bunny hay container
    Fold clothes

    Been feeling sad about recent breakup with bf--sometimes hard to get motivated when I get in that funk, but it's cyclical - the messier and more out of control the house is, the more bummed I feel because it would be easier to take care of if he was helping me. So I need to forge ahead.

    Late start on the day .. really late!

    Wed:
    Finish moving office stuff to office
    Empty bedside table and move to office
    Move other bedside table to right side
    Lamps cleaned and back on their tables

    gottadance:
    I don't know iof you have anyone else living there (kids?)
    but my dh moved out last week, and after all the catch up/
    spring cleaning is done, it will be WAY easier to keep clean, even
    though I am doing his work too. I just do a little everyday toward the
    weeds and poop patrol, spring cleaning/catchup. It took me two days
    to clean his bathroom/bedroom, but it will stay clean now cause I will do it weekely.

    I am also mildly "depressed" mostly because my kids have decided to shun me
    because of the breakup, but I try to eat well, sleep more, and get a little exercise and walk in the sun.

    My thoughts are with you {{{hugs}}}
