House Stuff

A Quiet Sunday Evening

In actuality, most of my day was quiet. I’ve  felt a little miserable most of the day (no need for further details on that), and while I know I just have so much work to do, I really didn’t want to get off the couch. So, I didn’t get any errands done.

I did get a very small number of things done, though. My Wii and all the games and accessories are where they belong. My router is set up so I’m no longer tied to my desktop computer in the second bedroom and I can update the podcasts on my iPhone and iPod, which I sync to my laptop.

Tomorrow I go back to work. I’m going to have a different route for part of my commute, so I’m going to have to leave a little earlier than usual since I don’t know how much longer it’ll take. I have to put out my trash and recycling carts before I leave for work, and I’m not entirely sure where they’re supposed to go — there was only one trash can out last Monday though I share my driveway with three other homes, and the recycling cart says something about needing to have a certain amount of space between them, and I have no idea how that’s going to work. You’d think the condo association would give new owners more information than just the standard rules and regulations. Of course, they might have sent me something by mail, but when I finally remembered to check my mailbox on Thursday, there was a form I have to send in to start delivery. Oops. I’m sure I’ll figure it all out eventually.

There is still a lot of painting to do, and Mom and I will finish the living room soon, but the master closet is taking priority because the shelves and rods were put in horribly (I don’t know much about this stuff, which will probably become more apparent when I try to describe materials later in this paragraph, but I know you can’t just randomly attach things to sheetrock), and I’d really like to have another place to put my clothes because my dresser and cedar chest are stuffed. Taking out the old stuff left a number of gaping holes in my closet, so tomorrow night I have to buy some sort of Teflon patches, on Wednesday Barb’s going to help me/teach me how to use the patches and patching plaster, on Thursday we’ll have to do some follow-up I think after it’s had time to dry, and hopefully Mom and I can get to painting Friday or Saturday, and start putting in some new closet organization very soon.

I’m trying  to not become overwhelmed by how much there is to do, but it’s hard. I didn’t get nearly as much done as I had hoped during my week off because the work I did get done just exhausted me. But until more painting gets done, it’s hard to get the bookcases and things filled up because they’ll be too difficult to move later. Even though it looked like there was loads of cupboard space in the kitchen, I have no idea where I’m going to put half the stuff.

Oh, and I have a Stampin’ Up! workshop this coming Saturday, so I’m going to have to spend at least a couple evenings working on that. Yikes.
