The end of winter break, that is, and I guess I’m not really surprised or disappointed I haven’t got more done. Bygones…
Today my goal is to box stuff from my living room bookshelves that I am not going to do anything with in the next several weeks:
Dr. Who Scarf Yarn
Home movies on VHS
Any books that don’t look especially presentable
You get the general idea. If I were staging this house to show, would I want this out? If not, but if I think I may want it between now and April, it can always trade places with the encyclopedias I’m bringing out instead.
Once the kids were out of school, just a daily level of maintenance has been a challenge. Today is the last day we can be sure of having to work on stuff. Tomorrow we hope to help someone move. I’ve gotten some things I was putting off done today, which is kind of good but it wasn’t house related.
Yesterday was the only day I can say for sure was a big disappointment. Other days have been holidays or we got something done. I had lunch with my mom, which was nice, but I was already overloaded for salt, and then we nearly had a wreck driving home… someone lost a box off their pickup truck right in front of us on the freeway. When I got home I had a headache and played videogames with my husband for a while. I couldn’t decide whether or not it was bad enough to take ibuprofen, and then I decided I might as well go shopping and when I picked up my keys I realized I’d missed a church auxiliary meeting. I have flaked out on several of these the last few months. It was in my planner, I’ve just gotten out of the habit of looking in my planner. I use it more for school when that’s going on.
So, 10 more days of break.
