    Hello Friday the 13th, AAAAh

    Here we go again, plans slightly change, I have some offline things to do that I did not expect. And my muscles around my ribs hurt, so I have fun with that. Slept weird (woke up 3x etc). And now it is suddenly 10am. Last night I've also done a few more things in the bathroom, so I have to accept it for what it is and finish some of the items on the todo list instead of nitpicking at it.

    Breakfast time, then I will get started and will report back if I made any progress.

    Let's do something today, no excuses of coffee or bored or tired! If you do something, I will get something sorted instead of giving up. Deal?

    What did you have for breakfast? Why was the forums offline? And how far did you get with all the cleaning?

    Eh, watching TV is not being productive. Pause it, do something for 5 minutes and continue watching it.

    Hello Weekend!

    Here I am again, sorry .. but the grind doesn't stop this time.

    Tidied up the living room a bit again, made sure the tea/computer/coffee corner is as nice as it was last week.

    And I've made a start in the toilet-room making sure the floor, walls, bowl, etc are all done, it's kinda done now, I just have to rinse it off and dry it. Some days ago I did the higher ends of the walls and the ceiling, and a first rough hygiene scrub. Dusted and hoovered, now I did the lower part. I can finally cross it off my list.

    Caught up again. After hovering the living room and gather up empty boxes, trash, etc. that needs to go downstairs again.

    Including today, I have 10 days for 10 items. Still on schedule. Hopefully I can start on the bathroom ceiling today and if that doesn't kill me I can do the last bit of the bedroom today. We will see what gets me first.

    I have to admit, I am happy that I have a tiny bit of a buffer and a plan-b, so I think since I am caught up that I might take a nap this afternoon or tonight, and otherwise take another day off so my body can recover from me killing it. It feels good that I have a week plus left before anybody shows up now. And I don't have to rush-rush the last 24 hours.

    Yes, just to hold myself accountable and to think through what I have to do, that's why I write this down here. It's a little stupid, and a little embarrassing, but it helps me.

    Since my heart rate needs to go down now, and my eyes need to stop shaking. I am going to have breakfast now and slowly move things around and use the swiffer thing to do the floors to gather up some more dust. Before I start on some OMG / 1MB maintenance, and today's MRF todo tasks. hehe

    Looking forward to hear if you take the weekend off or if you still are going to do something.

    Yeah but I bet it doesn't take a whole episode for you to eat lunch!

    Weekend off for me, I cleaned the kitchen yesterday and am now at my mother's for the weekend while she's away.

    Update!

    I have finished the hallway, the toilet-room, and majority of the bathroom and bedroom.

    I have the ceiling in bathroom left and the heater in the bedroom.

    But I took a nap because I felt a little tired and dizzy, and then suddenly it's 5pm.

    I guess tonight I will work on one thing without bothering my neighbours, and then throw the boxes out and other stuff. And revisit tomorrow what I have left and rethink the last week.

    Here I am again, new day, new chances, new groggy face..

    Headsup: I did .. not .. sleep .. well ..

    Instead of going to bed on time I tried to be a person. And in return I was not able to sleep at midnight, 2am, 4 am .. woke up at 5 am and 7 am.. I am so groggy.

    We will see if I find any motivation to get up and do something. Who knows. But right now; Coffee, pills, and a groggy face. And while I move around I will pick up some stuff, tidy up, and write down a new todo list for the new week. Who knows, at some point I might get up and stay up and start on something. My brain is like: don't give up, the other 250% of me is like: void.

    If I remember correctly i had like 10days for 10things, now it's 9 days for 10 things. And I hate hate the feeling that I might fall behind when I was doing so well. So many that has to be my motivation.

    Update:

    It feels like it took forever to do very little. Not having a great day meh.

    I've cleaned up the floor in the bedroom, hoovered, and removed things that need to get sorted and removed from the bedroom.

    The heater needs a proper cleaning, I am trying to find the courage. Maybe I will just do it in three parts, the floor, the wood, part of the windows, and then the heater. Then rinse it off last and dry things. I just know this will take me all day.

    Meanwhile, as I run into things as I walk between rooms and computer and kitchen, I will try to do the tiny simple things so I don't fall behind. I consider the bedroom task (which was 3 things) to be done. And what's left is the 'clean heater in bedroom' task (4th one). So at least I feel like I've done some progress haha.

    By midnight tonight the bedroom HAS to be done. Simple as that. No matter how long it takes me. lol.

    I did the Minecraft stuff, not going to do the OMGboards stuff today. But I have a vc meet tonight, so after a chat with Nix and some food, I am ready to start my day with the bathroom ceiling. CRY, i dunn wannnaaa..

    I will make a start, see how far I get, and then tonight move more boxes downstairs and tidy tiny things and do some dishes. Then tomorrow finish the ceiling and then probably take a day off haha.

    It sucks that this is all on top of everything else, that this is the extra stuff and that it feels like it's killing me, but.. I can finally start to see some progress

    I got to hang washing out, do washing up, clear sofas and make up again, tidy living room a bit and get rubbish and food waste out before Abbs gets back. Also waiting for electrician to turn up to hopefully fix outside light.

    Nice!

    I did something for what, 30 minutes, and I was just done for. My throat is itchy now and I have to cough once in a while (uhoh), so I went to bed since i had a voice chat meet tonight. Woke up in time and that's behind me now. Next is sorting out food and then finishing what I started earlier today.

    Nice job nixx!

    LOL Still working on it as my hip has died so that put an end to rushing about. Electrician turned up but couldn't fix it so I've had to by a new bulb for the outside light!

    Tomorrow I'm hoping my hip will be better.

    Okay, so I went to bed for extra rest. I just woke up "my hip died, electrician came and couldn't fix it" .. I had to read that a few times to make sense. My poor brain haha.

    5:30am i mean.. anyway, music, coffee, and my day starts I guess.

    I've woken up way too early, and I made a start. But I've also been prepping the holiday season events for Minecraft, so .. yeh

    However, i have a 1 hour task now in MC that needs to generate chunks, so I have time to do offline stuff now. I've cleaned out the bathroom from all the moving items, and cleaned the last wall and planks and things i notice. The next thing is that stupid ceiling. so i am going to do that now. Good thing we have masks! :D just can't find the protection glasses unfortn.

    Update!

    Well, the paint on the ceiling, the stuff just hanging lose is all removed, it's all ruined basically. I need to properly remove it but that might be a job for December. I have cleaned the bathroom again since there's paint dust everywhere now.

    I have to remove as much paint as possible and then put that stuff on there, then sand that and put a primer on etc, before i can re-paint the ceiling.

    At least the worst is removed now. Next is spending time today without hurting my back and wasting my eyes, is to nitpick on the areas so it looks 'neater', rather than 'omg what happened'.

    Yay the joys of maintenance.
