Cleaning, Resting

Mon Sep 19 - Wow am I tired today. I am completely wiped out from this weekend, and yet my house is a disaster and needs not only tidying up but outright cleaning and massive organization again. I think I'm going to drag the shelves from the patio into my room and finally get all the boxes out of the living room and off my floor. I'm not sure where I'm going to *put* this shelving unit. But it's still special to me because it was build by Ron and Pamela for their house, back when they lived here in town. I'll have to call Adrienne to see if her organizational brain can come up with the trick I need to squeeze this project together.

It's the final push at work for a class that launches on Wednesday, so I'm hoping that I can get into the office early enough tomorrow that I won't have to stay late. Even though we have no band rehearal for a week-and-a-half (the drummer is on vacation), I really want to have those evenings for myself, and not for work.

Finally, I really want to get back into the gym regularly again. Hurting my calf and ankle walking on Friday reminded me how much I want to be in shape. Also, although I still keep fluctuating between 5-6 pounds lost total, in the past 2-3 weeks several pairs of slacks have suddenly started to feel another inch too loose. The slacks I had on yesterday have no belt loops, and I'm thinking I need to add some. My cell phone is too heavy to stay up on the waist band, and would embarass me if I didn't have a long enough shirt on. Yea me.

I wasn't sure how much or what I was going to work on at home this evening. I just knew that I had a lot of cleaning to do. My room looked a little daunting, but I figure that with junk television on in the background, I could make a dent or two.

And I think I found a way to incorporate the old wall bookcase built by Pamela and Ron. I'm thinking of putting the rolly black shelves out where the loom is, move the loom in front of the picture windows, move the office supplies wooden bookcase somewhere else in my room (not sure where, maybe the end of my bed), and put the Pamela shelf in my room along the wall where the rolly black shelves are now. But to do all this, I definitely have to clean up everything thrown on the ground in my room so far.

So I've finished filling my laundry duffle with all the linens from the boxes we've been unpacking and set that aside for tomorrow or so. Finished cleaning the kitchen, made dinner, washed even more dishes. Picked up a few more bits strewn around my room, then tackled some more bookcase shevles in the living room. Last weeks' boxes yielded a few more heraldry books, language books, history & sagas, and a few more art techniques and art history books.

I decided to finally hang the banner filled with all my SCA favors attached, and just like my last apartment, the fuse box seems to be located behind my bedroom door. So why not hang my banner of favors right there too? It's added decoration when my door is closed, yet it leaves the fuse box accessible. The added incentive: I finally had a place to put the favors I'd been saving in the past few months.

So now I have a picked up room, a plan of action, and I've gotten another step down in the living room. Good enough to go to bed now.
