    Slow starting laundry last night.
    And slow starting dishwasher today.

    I feel so accomplished. But I think I did eventually sleep a bit better than usually.

    I still haven't done the boxes cleanup. Goad for today.

    Oh, and I have to order groceries (but I don't want to pay for them).

    Letting it go for today, picking life up again tomorrow.

    Yes, I also have to clean the coffee machine, after making coffee and taking a break.

    But I have enough little things to do. I think I might do that!

    Half the kitchen area is now scrubbed, next time I get in the kitchen I am moving left to right and cleaning the left side of the sink area.

    I have to hoover, and I don't want to!

    If I can get the res of the washing up done today I'll be happy. I want to change the table cloth too, but that's a job to do after the washing up, as there's stuff on the table to clean!

    You can do it ! I hope you get your tasks done.

    I just woke up, headache galore.... argh. But I hope it goes away soon. My tasks are to get the apartment to the point where I can have ppl show up in it to put stuff down. This also means I have to do the next step of sorting out the living room and start cleaning the one room that's left over. I hope to empty that the best I can this week, clean it this week and get happy enough with it that I can say ' just dump all the crap in that room' , and then when there's no space there, we move to the living room and ill deal with it in june.

    But for today, I have to go from left to right and top to bottom in my living room and kitchen and see what I can do, and write down everything that I realise that has to get done and try to schedule that.

    Lazy end of April (also due to pain) is over, it's go time again. I tried a few days to see what my arms and knees can do (after recovering from that fall the other week) and I think I know and I can apply the pressure now. GO TIME lol haha

    Mini update:

    Moved things from the bedroom that need a wash into the bathroom, dealing with that in a bit.

    Moved the bed into one corner, to make more space. It's just for this month hopefully.

    Tried my best to quickly clean the floor, and move boxes and chairs into the bedroom, into the space I created.

    In the hallway where the 'mini farm' (which is pretty huge) is placed, since I have no other space for it (cry!) I had to clean, I finally got around to get rid of the worst, visually you can tell I cleaned it (but, .. needs more, just can't at the moment, moved that to 'if there is more time' next week.

    Now I have space in the living room. I can start moving things around to make space so hovering the whole area is easier.

    My shoulders hurt, the muscles. They're not happy with me. Headache isn't motivating me to do more. Sitting down for a few minutes.

    Mini update again,

    Made coffee, moved dishes into dishwasher

    Started laundry while oven was heating up some nice food (see mrfloris on instagram)

    Had break.. lunch --- had food.

    Caught up on discord accounts, msgs, dms, tickets, todo items, minecraft and support stuff, and emails, facetime stuff, iMsg things, etc.

    Updated all the ios devices due to critical security issue (you should too).

    And am almost ready to get up again as my shoulders and eyes are okay again, they've calmed down.

    Another update:

    Removed plastic wrap from some things that were moved here last month, it was time.

    Gathered up the trash a bit more.

    Tidied more in the kitchen, ready to scrubscrubscrub

    Dishwasher is one, washing machine is off, dryer is now on.

    Tidied up the computer table and living room table a bit.

    Worked on github project

    Moved more things into the bedroom, i can access the living room table easier now haa

    Let the discord ppl know i might do less MC this month and if they can chip in by keeping eyes open for player questions/issues.

    Trying to find a spot for old hardware that i can't hide in closets.

    Trying to find the courage to maybe get rid of a chair that i should keep. i dunno.

    Improved my todo list a bit.

    Made a closet empty for incoming books and bits and bobs.

    Looked up online if there's handyman who can get hired to do electrical work, if my brother in law can't help heeh Will call him before the weekend.

    Okay, back at it, my break takes too long

    Mini and maybe final update for today.

    Todo list slightly adjusted.

    I am dying on the inside, my arm is not happy with me now.

    Toilet is done for 35%

    2nd half of kitchen sink area is done.

    Dryer has started and laundry collected. Dish washer didn't finish in time.

    I might have a temp solution for the tech that i can't fit in a closet.

    The tech i couldn't store has been temp moved to a little storage corner.

    Stuff that was below the table in the living room is moved now, next is to vacuum there



    Living room has enough space that i can now start moving things around.

    Tomorrow is going to the farm day, I have to fix up my bike first though, maybe tonight or tomorrow after waking up.

    Ahhh Flat inspection on Monday, not had one before (yay covid!) so I got lots to get done.

    However food and phone calls first!

    Then it's getting all the clothes put away in the bedroom, and doing the least amount of laundry possible this week!

    *wakes up

    OH NO, we have to do it all over again, haha. AAAGH.

    Alright, time to check the dryer, washing machine, dishwasher, do some pots and pans manually, move things around, clean the floor, get rid of dust here and there, and figure out the rest of the day.

    I also have to go to the farm to go through the big living room closet that is 4 meters wide and 3 meters high and pick out the books that i want to keep. This is going to be fun with my bad eyes. haha.

    By the way, now that I have some space in the apartment because things have been moved around, it feels like I have a better understanding of 'oh this can go there, those things they bring can be put down here', and that takes away a bit of the stress. I kind of wonder if I should just say 'f it', and tell them: just dump it all on the floor in this room here... And then I will slowly use June to sort it out myself. But let's call that plan-b.
