I am still struggling to get myself into some kind of routine that isn’t staying up way too late and sleeping in. I need to start being productive. I have a list of things to do that I have been ignoring. I keep adding to it and not crossing anything off.
This past Thursday was bright and sunny and all I could focus on was the dirt and dust in my home. Fridays are long work days so I knew Saturday would be the day for chores. Last year, August or September, I bought new doorknobs for all the doors inside my apartment. When the handle on Diva’s door came off in my hand late last year, I changed it and also the one on Princess’s room to keep things even. Especially since it was Princess’s idea to change the door handles. And then I rested…
So yesterday I changed 3 of the six remaining doors. I then dusted like it was my job. It was gross. Then I vacuumed the living room and hallway. We threw out some crap and put some other stuff in a bag for donation. Unfortunately no one is open to take these treasures so I will be adding them to my sister’s pile in my mother’s garage as I do not have any space for junk.
My place looks better but there is still so much more to do. I have yet to tackle my bedroom and it needs assistance. It is overdue. So I am going to try to get up at a reasonable hour this week and work on it bit by bit. I only recently emptied the suitcase I used in November … 😒😳🙄😲
I did my taxes today. I was procrastinating as I knew I owed and since Trudeau gave me that extension I figured I had time… but since my taxes are done with my daughters I didn’t want to delay them too much as they are eligible for all kinds of rebates I am not. They are both getting back money so I’ll be hitting them up for meals out. LOL
Even though I owe a small fortune and am now working way too much for very little, I still feel privileged. Life is still good. We are still healthy. There is lots of food in the fridge and freezers. Ironically I have more money in my accounts and a smaller than normal credit card bill this month. It has got me thinking about how much of my spending was just on crap and unnecessary. I know most of it went in my belly and it was how I socialized. It is bringing to front that I should change my ways. I think our “new normal” will help with that, whenever we are allowed out again.
Hope all is well in your world and you are healthy.
