Last update..

Had food, ordered food, had coffee, made iced coffee.

Laundry finished, dryer finished, dishwasher is done and almost empty.

Trash had to wait, will do later tonight, i had online things that required attention.

Spoke with a company i pay bills to and made an appointment with the accountant for tomorrow to discuss some things.

Did some pots and pans manually, started emptying dishwasher and I tried to organize a cupboard. Did a thing online that took brain power, and had coffee. Enjoying my headache now.

Not sure what to do, might open the door for 15 minutes, might try to wash the wall in the bathroom.

Saturday, I am out of excuses and things are okay enough.. it's cold and I need to warm up. Let's just do some things.

- I see the table next to me has left over items from food i prepped, i need to clean that and dust off the table and items, and put items in the right spot.

- The table i am on has the imac, the front half is fine, back half of the table has too much dust, i need to work on that. And the pile of papers next to me can be a bit more organized.

- Kitchen sink is clean, but surface area around it has dishes, i can manually do those.

- Livingroom table is fine, but started to gather up items that i can put back in their place.

- I want to do a wall in the bathroom, maybe if it's too much for me to do all at once i should just accept that and do one wall - then the above list, then rins off that wall .. maybe by next saturday i've done all sides and it's less of a big-task.

I am ignoring dishwasher, dryer, laundry, etc. I don't want to see that anymore, lol, maybe tomorrow.

Update:

Scrubbed 50% of both walls, because i am apparently mental. Rinsed that off after 5 minutes, then I sprayed the whole of both walls, and after 10 minutes I rinsed that off. And wiped it off with an old towel.

Picked up crap from the floor and threw it in the trash. I've gathered up the trash in the kitchen, all tables, etc. So I am ready to dust.

Just had coffee and a break, and already have no motivation left. haha. I will just go do it though.

Sunday update.

I've had a walk around the apartment to spot things I might overlook but that can be thrown out, filled up a bin liner and threw it out with the rest.

Dishwasher is empty and I've started to fill it up again with the new dishes.

I had to lookup some stuff that my sister needs ~ glad i found it, phew.

Checked for mail downstairs, but had nothing. ~ phew, no unexpected bills or bad news haha.

Kept the computer table empty and clean enough, but I still have to dust it.

Prepared some things for the groceries tomorrow, tidied the hallway and made space. I've also put those stamps on the flyers so that's 12 euro discount. They should be here tomorrow afternoon.

Talking about monday, .. sigh, i am anxious, i really hope it goes well, no crazy nonsense like last week.

Shower, i've done more on those two walls, but i am not happy with it. I am really unhappy that my body and bad eyes are just in the way to do this fast and do it well. But I just have to accept that I can't, and do it part by part. So, top is done twice now, bottom is rinsed and sprayed a few times, so at least 2 walls are done. Next is to scrub bottom half on both and kinda repeat the whole thing and just trust that it's better than not doing anything. I will see in a few days how real life is before i promise myself that i will do more. I have already started thinking of the ceiling and i am glad the bathroom is in the state it is in now, it will be a lot easier this time around to move things out, do the ceiling and then clean up and put things back. It will probably cost me a whole day.

Okay, for now, i am not sure yet if i want to go for a walk outside or a bike ride.

Oh boy, sister visiting thursday.

This means I'd like to have things in their place, maybe use swiffer to get dust off of the floor, clean kitchen, en at least the toilet room.

No stress, I have enough time. Hopefully nothing crazy happens this week to ruin it all.

Today: gathered up trash, haven't taken it downstairs yet, will do so in a minute when i go for my bike ride.

I've finished laundry and just have to put things away. I can figure out if i have enough for another load or something. probably not.

Dishes are up to date, i just have some new things, i can manually do them to keep up and not fall behind.

This should give me time later to make a start in the toilet room, and then I will do the rest tomorrow.

Tue Update:

Trash thrown out, dishwasher almost empty, laundry gathered.

I realised I need clean clothes thursday so i might as well wash them tonight/tomorrow.

Moved a few things around. And prepared a laptop that my sister will pick up.

Watered the plants, they looked hungry.

I had some paperwork to deal with that came in, but no bad news i guess.
