Well, after two solid months of concentrating on getting myself organized and my apartment back in shape, I have gotten to the point where at least 3 of the 4 rooms are at a minimum of being at least presentable.
The one room that remains is my bedroom, but I can for the time being keep the door closed should I suddenly find myself with company. There are also a number of large pieces (manual treadmill, hydraulic rowing machine, 2-3 computers, one record player, one old non-working tv) that I also need to have taken away, but these will have to wait until the traditional tube TV I use in my living room no longer works.
I also managed to get most of the paper I wanted to shred, shredded and out in the garbage and have set up my paperless record system. And I've also taken a number of small, non-working items over to our bulk "garbage storage" area.
I can now start cleaning out one closet at a time, one shelf at a time.
What I want to do is to create a schedule whereby I can include all those items that I need to get done as well as all the fun things I like to do. I will be working on this through the next couple of months because I want to include so many things to my list. The one thing I wonder about since I retired is how I had managed to do all that I did while holding down a full-time job.
Well I'm going to close for now so I can start working on the things I need to accomplish today. Have a great day all.
