Desert Dweller will become famous soon enough
so far I managed to switch the load of towels from the washer to the dryer that I forgot about last night. Fold and put away the stuff I had left in the dryer yesterday and even put a new load in the washer. Now if I can just remember to switch it when it is done

Flood and moving recovery-Motivation = productivity

Warning-this is not how I usually am, do not take a guilt trip, I am so behind I need about 2 months of days like this!

So far, 4 loads laundry-part is the handwoven strip rug parts I needed to prep for assembly-

Putting things away from moving out of my during the week apartment-DH unloaded the car-all my teacher stuff.

Yes, art/decor project-working on my area rug for my living room-have to measure and dye the fabric for the border. While that is stewing, I will use lightweight bonding and fuse the handwoven strips to the canvas backing and then add the border and machine stitch all when done-

Sorted old clothes of son-packing his crap in boxes to give him when he has room in his apartment.

Sorting and reworking storage of fabrics, weaving, and art supplies and the closet/shelving units they are stored in/on.

OK, I am on a roll, just need my house to function-no I am not a neat freak, I need to be able to walk through my rooms and find things after our basement flood disaster a year ago. We are still recovering from that-the whole basement had to be redone plus $4000 worth of plumbing that dug up the back yard and driveway!

I want to sew and create art-can't do that well until I get the basement functioning again. I need motivation and this is it! Once I get creative, I get messy! But then, neat never was fun!

Remember, I was raised by my Martha Stewart with OCD on speed, can do a photo shoot anytime in my house mother! I KNOW how to clean-the organizing just hurts my ADD brain after doing it too long. That is the hard part.

MY wife cleaned 1 room, a sink full of dishes, and cooked dinner.
Okay dinner was velveta and rotel dip, but it's rare she does this much.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I'm usually the one cleaning, and cooking.
While she was doing this (after I regained consciousness), I cleaned the car inside and out, and cut down the clover in the backyard.
Usually I clean the whole house on Sat, plus both cars, plus the yard.
Whew, I'm still floored.
After telling her what a great job she did, maybe this is the beginning of something new.

What a wonderful thread. I've been feeling like crap and haven't been keeping up with any of the cleaning, and feeling guilty about it of course. So now I can feel good about cleaning the cat box, taking out the trash and putting in a clean bag, and sweeping the living room floor. I've also done a couple of loads of laundry but have about 4 more to do, and the dishes are stacked a foot high - in two stacks! But, hey, they'll still be there tomorrow.

This morning I got one kiddo off on a road trip with her daddy and played Hunt for the Easter Eggs with the little one who was so disappointed about not getting to go along. So that's a good excuse for not getting more done, isn't it?

I actually ...did clean off my desk today, emptied in baskets, and cleaned out a bin full of paperwork...I was hiding under my desk, that should have gone in the shredder....


And I came home...and did the dishes ...OMG...is it a full moon???
