Body Double Session 3 [Sep. 3rd, 2011|11:04 pm]

Today (Saturday, 9/3) I had my last body double session for the week. This time, drwex came over and played around on a laptop while I worked on stuff from the floor of the kitchen. In fact, a few minutes before our 2-hour session was up, I'd finished picking up and processing all the papers on the kitchen floor!

One of the important things I managed to get done was to separate out all of the Weekly Dig issues that contain an article or comic book review by me and put them into a folder (that doesn't hold them properly but at least keeps them sort of contained) labeled "CONTAIN ARTICLES BY KJC" so I can find them again. (You, dear friend, can read them here if you are so inclined.) All the other random copies (ones I picked up to read and ones I picked up because I thought I might be in them) have been recycled.

I've also done some work on my mail station (which is a very cluttered small bookshelf near the front door, although it is less cluttered since I started the body double project & cleared a bunch of crap off of it) so that there is a receptacle for financial papers, a receptacle for health care papers, and a receptacle for my damn pocket change. More things need to be cleared off the bookshelf and more things need to go live there. The BF built me a little wooden bin to live on top of it & contain my mail, but apparently it's too big because I FILL IT WITH MAIL and don't deal with it. So I need to put other mail station materials into a holder that will live in the bin and limit how much space I can then leave to mail. And I do need a special place for my beloved letter opener (which took visits to THREE stores to find).

Now that I've whacked all the low-hanging fruit off the tree of terror that is my home, I have to start working on the difficult stuff. Poo.

Amazing. That's a lot of work in one week.

May the difficult stuff be as successful as the low-hanging fruit.

The best thing about what you have done so far, though, is having given yourself some breathing room, which will allow you more energy for more difficult projects.

Are you allowed to reward yourself with treats? If so, I think this merits one. :)

Treats. Heh. Given my waistline, I suspect I reward myself a little too much with treats already. But tomorrow there will (hopefully) be more dark chocolate-covered digestive biscuits from the UK that I will go to Cardullo's and buy for myself. I suspect that counts.

It was enjoyable

And nice to chat with you a bit. Good luck with the project; I'll pitch in again if we can find an overlap.
