    Mschrisgo2, you are doing great!

    i spent 45 minutes on the basement. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you are avoiding other things. (Student evaluations)

    total 2 hrs, 20 minutes

    I want to toss 95 items in January, 94 in February, 93 in March, etc. So far this month I have gotten rid of 27 things. (Last August I started this project with 100.)

    Yppej, I like it, the mess is smaller so less work for the same improvement...

    worked in in the basement today. Don’t know how long because I interwove it with putting away Christmas stuff (which goes in the basement.

    i think I can safely take the running total to 3.5 hours.

    I woke up rediculously early today and put an hour in on the basement. 4.5 hours

    I have a specific goal in mind:
    step 1: clear a space against and in front of a specific wall
    step 2: rip the nasty plastic baseboard off the wall, and clean it with bleach
    step 3: patch the hole in the drywall
    step 4: paint
    step 5: reassemble my doll shelf that has been in pieces ever since dh decided we should replace the heating system
    step 6: put the dolls on it.

    i am hoping to finish steps 1&2 today.

    CL, I love that you woke up early with a specific goal in mind! Hmm, the fruit of 'no school work' yesterday?

    How big is the wall? How big is your doll shelf? Your dolls will be happy to be out of boxes again

    The wall is 84.5” long and 11’ high.

    the shelf is 84” long and 8’ high.

    i think the morning was both the fruit of truly relaxing and going to bed early yesterday, and also the excitement of an agreed on solution to something that has been bothering me for a long time.

    Good work, everybody!

    The one thing I did this week towards getting more organized at work was that I took five boxes of stuff I had at home that belonged at work to work.

    I will start on my office probably on Tuesday.
