    That's how I generally do it, haha. Move things into a room, close door, stuff something in front of the door. lol

    I just have ppl over that have to go in all the rooms this time, from inspection to movers, etc. So I am screwed, time to man up haha

    Thank you all for helping me stay motivated, even during low times. Every 5 minutes I do something is a step forward.

    Just now, I didn't dust and hover properly, but the most work is done. I am letting it air out now. I just got word it will be today after 1 pm that they will come. So I have until 1 pm to do 5 minute things I guess, including a shower.

    I've just made sure the hallways, the kitchen, and the toilet/bathroom area is tidy and clean again. I don't have to worry about that.

    The living room had a quick hover, quick dusting, and I've made tiny progress, but the worst is gone.

    Things are moved towards the back, so there's room for things to just be put down.

    Plants have water again. I didn't forget!

    Moved all the clothes into a closet, even if I didn't fold it.

    And I've made more room in closets to put boxes in, so tonight when I can move my body again haha, I can start putting things away that they deliver today.

    It is now time to force myself to take a break. i still have to use my back the rest of the day and probably move things from downstairs to upstairs and it will kill me. Anyway..

    Maybe I will go do my morning routine, and then rest, and then whatever time I have left between then and them showing up I can do 5 little minutes of nitpicking some of the visual things in the apartment.

    Best of luck everybody this week.

    I am now resting, nothing more I can do really today.

    There is now room for this person to come and dump like loads of stuff, she will be here within the hour.

    I have an empty room, hallway and room in the livingroom, so enough to just dump it - and then tonight to put it away in closets where it fits once i know what i have.

    Then tomorrow is tomorrow's problem haha. 17th they come with the big stuff. I have tomorrow to make room for that - so i *have* to move what comes today out of the way as well.

    Crazy, I hate life: life lesson: do not have family LOL

    Well the table and chairs is up, and moved around several time before putting it back where I started! Now need to find a new home for all my shoes, but that's tomorrow's job!

    I still have today/tomorrow to move content of apartment around. It is more tidy, but only to make space to make things terrible haha

    Rehome shoes? what does that mean, sorry

    Yeah, I have to swap washing machine, and just in case i screw that up, I am going to do one more washing up today.

    More washing up huh :D
    I put the trash out.
    I dunno what to do for dinner.

    best of luck with the doc appointment stuff.





    Last night, I have been slowly going through things, moving stuff around, putting things in the right room and closets.

    Then eventually I went to bed, fall asleep around 6 am. Woke up hours later, felt super sleepy, stayed in bed. Big mistake.. now I woke up at 12 midday and with a terrible headache.

    I have to start moving things away, making space for big closets and being able to tell these movers people: this goes in that room, the rest here.. Wont' be fun, but I will just try my best - from this point on everything will be 'too big too handle, and heavy', so this headache will not go away probably haha. fml.

    At least yesterday is over!

    And hopefully tomorrow will be gone too before I know it.

    One of the hallways, this is what is left for today. Last night I have done about 45% of this in the livingroom and here. this is what is left and has to go 'somewhere'.


    56AA3D4C-68FB-4C1C-BBAB-9E2DDABC2F1A.JPG This is in the bedroom, I have put my stuff on top, christmas stuff on top. And what boxes came in last night that fit I have put in the closet (pls dont fall down - that plank is already .. not straight).

    This is in my bedroom, last week I moved all the stuff in it to the closet on the right, that isn't on this picture. And started stacking up all the boxes I already had with things that were dropped off here. I just have no other place. My bedroom closet it is. haha

    This is a really tiny room, and my dad made a miniature replica of the farm as it was in 1700, that low white table is where i will have to plonk it. This room was covered up with boxes, bags, and crap from top to bottom and is what took the most work. Now I have 2 empty closets (well, one i filled up last night) alongside the one in the picture with my own stuff.. So I will be moving things into these.
    Hopefully we didn't screw up the measures, so that farm can rest on that thing tomorrow.

    Well the shoes were under the table in the corner of the room, but the new table and chairs are there now so they need to go somewhere else, where I've moved that table the shoes can't really go back under it, however I've now ordered some storage boxes for the shoes to go in, got to pick them up from Argos later on today.

    I AM FREE !!

    Things are moved out, and moved in, and then 5x over. It's finally done. I can put on my sweatpants and shirt and chill and while there's still loads to do, there is no longer a "by x date" pressure. Which helps fight stress. I can now work on the other 900 problems in my life (fml).

    Today I will do nothing more but heal my body, shower, laundry, and tidy up the kitchen. And maybe move a few things around.

    I really am trying to just let my body rest and be healthier.

    Last night 2 am I have been cooking. haha. I have prepped the sauce for my potato and pasta meals.

    I have also tried to keep up with laundry and cleaning the kitchen and dishes. So i do not fall behind while I take a small break this weekend.

    Beyond that, nothing. I have tried to do nothing.

    So I have booked an appointment to drop off books, dvds, cds etc tomorrow. I have pretty much sorted out everything to take, but I'll double check it all this afternoon. I've also booked an appointment to drop off clothing on Saturday, so that's the next thing to sort out probably Thursday or Friday.
