Road to a home: starting back up. 
17th-Nov-2012 07:29 am
"Road to a home" is something one of our list people came up with. Her idea was to make a list every day -- one maintenance job that needed attention, one task towards a long-term project, and one thing to do for herself to help improve her moood.
It was helping me a lot... I'm going to try it again. But I'm adding

1. Catch up on laundry & folding.
2. Empty the perilously high-piled dish drying rack.

PROJECT: Shed purge! Give away the old singer & the microwave from Rob's office (the one that got re-orged out of existence by the governor). Find the box of winter bits ... somehow I seem to have one of every glove, but no mates to any.

ME TIME: A nap before taking my daughter to her friend's birthday party. Since she had us up at 5:30 this morning, I may even try to get HER to take one too.

THINK POSITIVE: I set up coffee before coming down to laundry&LJ; my husband's making breakfast...and I think it smells ready. So glad to have a washer/drier in my house so I don't have to lug all this to the laundromat!

Sigh. While just about everyone I know is looking forward to the holiday, I'm looking forward to a four day weekend to tend to my house, which has suffered terribly while I've been eaten by my job - since August. I'd love to jump on this, but I come home (weeknights) so beat that I'm a zombie until bedtime. Any hints?

Wow. Now I know I was gone longer than I'd realized. Sorry ... You posted your response to my last post in NOVEMBER. That's when we got the first of the nasty winter colds...which lasted until midjanuary. Yikes what a winter.

I think this is a really good way of looking at things! Covers a great range of things, but keeps it simple and attainable.

Hi there... You posted your responses e to my comment back in November, and I disappeared off lj with an attack of life. Sorry about that!
