I’ve been BUZZZEEE!

I’ve crossed a lot off my “To Do” list…

Cartoon Bee - Busy Bee

Because I don’t want to spend a lot of time and because the clock is staring at me and because I’ve got to get up tomorrow at 8am whether or not I’m rested and because I’ve got a LONG day ahead of me tomorrow, I’m going to make this quick.

Well, “quick” as in “quick for Tony”

Anyway…  first a confession.  Over the past two years as my life has slid into the crapper, my humble abode which consists of a small room, a bathroom, a portion of the kitchen and a corner of the dining room have become well, uhmmm… Icky.

My Bed ©2011Dusty.  Dirty.  Cluttered.  Messy even.  I’ve not had friends over to visit because I’m sure they’d shriek “INTERVENTION” and call the booking agent for that show about horders.

Here is a pic of my room, all tidy and neat.  — at least one side of it anyway….  🙂  And don’t try to zoom in, there is dust but I kept the resolution down low so ya can’t see it… so there!  Thhhhhppppttttttt!

Anyway, I’ve realized though that something which got messed up over the course of MANY months can’t be fixed in a day or even a week.  It is going to take a little each day to get everthing ship shape, dusted, cleaned, organized and toss a lot of stuff I don’t need and don’t use out the door…

Hmmmm… that applies to me and my body as well doesn’t it?! 

Wow….deep thoughts late at night.  Oh my!

Ok,  Off the top of my head here are the things that I’ve accomplished over the past week (in no particular order)

  • After a long absence of several months, I’m once again writing on Squidoo:
  • Every item of clothes I own is now clean.  We won’t discuss..  But this is HUGE!
  • My old “laundry hamper” which allowed me to pile up the clothes for ages before doing the laundry is now for sale on Amazon.  Hey, it’s a great hamper, it’s not the hamper’s fault that I procrastinate!  Anyway, I now have a new, smaller hamper which means that, if my plan works, I’ll do laundry when the hamper is full. And since the hamper will only hold a week’s worth of clothes… TADAH! I do laundry every week!
  • Did I mention the blinds?  The really do look cool!
  • More and more of my room is now a dust free zone.  Bit by bit, I’m killing the marauding armies of dust bunnies!
  • A replacement wall vent is now on order and will be arriving soon.  As soon as it is, the old grody, icky, rusty, nasty one will go into the trash and the new clean one (properly sealed to ensure no excess air leakage) will be installed.
  • The aerator that has been missing on the kitchen sink for almost two years is now REPLACED!  It took two trips to Lowe’s to get the right size but TADAH!

My friend Steve working on my old houseHmmm… with all this “handyman” stuff I think I’m feeling all butch.  I even used TOOLS!!!  A drill and everything to put up the blinds and take down the old vent…  Oh my!

  • My license plates are now on my truck and not in my inbox.
  • I found my Mazda Title!!!!!!!  Which means I can finally do something with it.  Sell it is what I’m going to try to do.
  • I drove to Austin for my first lesson with my new coach.
  • I got the Manager at my storage unit to agree that if I bring him a competitors price he will match it.  That is a good thing because it means I don’t have to move all that stuff.  BUT….
  • I eyeballed what is in the storage unit and there is definitely stuff I can sell.
  • I invoiced a client for a gig I’m doing next week.
  • I updated my business cards and printed out a bunch of them.
  • I got my gate widget velcroed and stuck on the dash of my truck.  Woot!  Hey it’s the little things sometimes.
  • I found my bed risers and switched them out for the pillow wedges. Stay tuned to see if the new arrangement makes me sleep better.  I’m still in pursuit of a good night’s sleep.
  • Oh, and I danced.  Practiced and all that dancing stuff.
  • Took some junk to Goodwill


Diva Kitty (CC)No wonder I’m tired…

But I feel good.  I got a LOT done this week!

My Inner Domestic Diva demands that I now rest.

See ya on the dance floor!

  1. I received a very nice email from a lady in the UK who asked if I would add a link to her website article: http://www.galleryblinds.co.uk/blindadvice since I mentioned putting up blinds in my post.
