Body Double Project Ends [Sep. 15th, 2011|02:40 am]

Not with a bang, but with a whimper...

Saturday's body double had to cancel. Then I got food poisoning Monday from something I ate Sunday (dunno what). That knocked me out for all of Monday and Tuesday, and I was pretty ragged Wednesday as well, so I cancelled both Tuesday's & Wednesday's sessions. *sigh* Just got my appetite back Wednesday evening, after 9pm.

I DID accomplish one of my main goals, which was to get the kitchen floor clean. And it is. And pretty much all the crap from the kitchen has a new place to live. The other main goal was to move books out of boxes where findyourfloor and I put them to get them under control and move them into bins, each numbered and documented with a list of what's inside. This goal is NOT complete. I only rearranged & enumerated one box. That goal, along with culling a LOT of magazines I've been saving, is on the list of pending tasks.

I'm going to take a short break from cleaning to try & get a bunch of other projects done, mainly on my business (as well as editing work I need to complete). It seems like I can only have one BIG thing going on in my life these days and it squeezes all the other stuff out. I'm not explaining it well because I'm not sure what is happening or why. I just know that while I was throwing a LOT of energy into cleaning the house, I completely failed to get a bunch of editing work done.

Actually, now that I've said that, it might be an energy thing. Hmm.

I am glad you are starting to feel better, though. And we can reschedule.

Referring back

I'm sorry you got knocked off your feet - sounds horrid.

That said, I am recalling something you posted recently about setting things up for future you. Is there a way you can not just drop the cleaning project but instead write some things down that will help future you reconsider starting the project at an appropriate date down the road?

I totally get that one big thing at a time consumes all of some limited resource (energy, attention, whatever) but it seems like you have found a useful strategy and I'm wondering if it applies here.

Re: Referring back

This was actually a sufficiently BIG thing that I probably won't forget it any time soon. And if I do, I'm trying to fold reviewing my LJ into a regular task (monthly, I wish... but maybe quarterly), so I don't forget stuff, so I suspect it'll get refreshed at that point.
