I’m not quitting. But I was getting overwhelmed, and starting to panic about all the outstanding chores. Instead of fighting it, I just listened to my body — time to quit for a while. Okay.
I really, really would like to have the living room cleared out for the holidays. I also would really like the dining room to be clean too!
What I did this morning? I swept the entry and the hearth. I cleaned the tools and put them away. The kitchen needs to be caught up, I was gone most of yesterday and didn’t cook, so it just accumulated dishes to wash, the usual.
Here’s the last list, with the things I’d done before now removed. I’ll do the usual strike thru and bold dates when I get something done.
Pick up the yard, put more items away for winter. 11/3 Chairs put away, hoses, hose table.
(All need to be covered.) Also not-so-great paint in the shed. Raked around the house, or most of it. (Need to pick up leaf piles.) Mostly done now., there’s an endless list of chores for the yard! 11/19
Make up/try the Naval Academy brass polish. Deferred because I have THREE containers of general metal polish.
I want to use up at least one of those before I make up more. I sure don’t need 4!!!
Go thru the record collection, cull. First part done. Moving to in-process 10/27, 2nd piece done 11/2, 3rd 11/21, forgot to note it!
Wash the net curtains. First pair pulled from over the dry stores 4:30. Washed Tues. 10/24 a.m.
One pair to go. Two pairs to go.
Fertilize the lawn. Did the dooryard lawn and the lawn on the street side of the bulb bed. Tues. 4:30 p.m. Lots more to do! Finished Fri. 11/10
Cull books from one “holding pattern” bookcases. Either they’re out or they stay!, in process Thurs. a.m. (I did the 1st shelf.)
Put family photos in the album. Can’t be done. Photos located, album missing!
Clean off DH’s desk. This is going to be delayed until he and I catch up. I pulled everything from the top drawer on his side of the dresser, we’re still going through all of that.
Finish the freezer/
fridge cleaning. More done, but not complete. 7:00 p.m. Move to on-going.
