While I was on the call with nix I cleaned left side of the kitchen and put things away, rinsed out some sinks and stuff like that. I made a bit of progress. Having terrible coffee now and a break. And soon a pancake (finally food in 25 minutes).

Sometimes I feel the more of an 'echo' a room has, the cleaner it is. haha

No washing up for me today!! Got no water!

I only have the dinner stuff to wash anyway, but just knowing that I have an excuse to leave it is great, not that I've ever really needed an excuse!

Trash is all gone, I just have boxes left. But I slept through the afternoon. I felt weird and didn't want to end up depressed and achy from my arm. I crawled into bed and had a nap and caught up with rest. Also important. Tonight I will keep up with the kitchen and whatever. The last 24 hours have started. I like that pressure (and I hate it). But I am almost done - the movers can come the 19th, they're welcome haha.

I just wanted to say that thanks to this thread and you Joan and Nix, and everybody that I talk to about it, that I do get to the point where I am not anxious about having people in my apartment, and all that stuff. I am able to set goals, make progress, work towards dead lines etc. Today's the last day I can work on some rooms, tomorrow the movers come to dump stuff in the empty livingroom, and then I can take a rest for a bit.

Update:

Cleaned spots on the floor that bothered me.

Threw the boxes out! Finally. haha.

Started emptying the kitchen area again, making sure it will be empty tomorrow.

The stove got dirty, the coffee had too much water and started to spray the steam with coffee particles everywhere (of course..) so I have to wait for that to cool down and then wipe it off. But that's 1 minute work. No biggie.

I've started laundry, and the dryer, and dishwasher are done. So I can empty those and then wait for laundry to finish and put that in the dryer.

I got news tomorrow is confirmed, and I expect them to show up after midday. They have to go to the farm first anyway.

Same here, they left today, I felt depressed knowing every room in my apartment is now smelling like the old farm and stuffed with things that I don't know what to do with or where to put. So I went to bed.

Thursday, I tried to sleep, here I am, meow. I dunno.

I have tried to keep the kitchen clean, I've moved a certain box outside after emptying it. I need to bring that heavy wood thing down.

On the balcony i have had various tests done with the table that I got, which turned out to be a bit bigger than expected. MAAAAAHN

I've ordered some comfy seater thingies for the chairs. I can use those inside on the new chairs, and then when I have visitors, use them outside so they sit 'clean' and not on dust/wet chair etc.

Some things I wanted outside I dont feel comfy having outside. It was misty, it just soaked up water it seems like. I brought it back in.

Certain boxes I got I've started to look at it and I don't even know where to begin haha.

Maybe I should go back to my original todo list. And go with plan-a, where I empty, clean, tidy, and organize that other tiny room. That way I can put stuff in boxes and closets there, and make some progress.

What I really need is someone who is handy and doesn't mind that I just watch them drill holes in walls and fix things. I have 2 left hands, i will just cause water damage, etc.

Made coffee, worked on some code, called the store, and later this afternoon I can pick up the plants. So if needed, I can take a nap until like 3 or 4pm I guess.

I've got the balcony and frontdoor open, so I hear birrrrdsss, and the apartment stank goes away.

Today I've made sure that laundry things are all together, that the dryer is empty. I've emptied the dishwasher and started refilling it. I have moved old tools out of a box and put them in bags, and the old box with possible farm-things on it (woodworms or lice or whatever) was outside for some days and that's thrown out now downstairs.

Cleaned the floor a little where there was space.

Worked on the forums.

Tiny 15 minutes on Minecraft.

Had a sandwich for breakfast and one for lunch. Coffee and lemonade in between.

Moved things around on the balcony.

My foot hurts ! I dunno why :/

Threw away a plant that was 75% dead and just wasn't recovering.

And I dd a few more things, but can't remember them now. oh well.

Well yesterday didn't go to plan, was just too tired.
Can't do any more laundry until the pods come through the post (laundry subscription)
Did change the bedding at least yesterday and got most of the washing up done.

Today I'll try to finish the washing up, get my meal plan done.
