WIP it good! week 1 progress report
technically it's already wednesday morning, but here's my first progress report. i can now check an item off my list! today i made 2 red and aqua strips for mary for this bee. i even got them photographed and packaged for mailing. if i leave the house tomorrow i will drop by ye olde post office and mail them off.
i also made another spiderweb block (now up to three total of the twelve i need).
on the home front, i have just begun to FLY and i'm taking baby steps (flights?). tonight i decided i'd set aside 30 minutes and see what i could get done. the results: folded one load of laundry and put everything away; scooped kitty litter; boxed up the recycling; loaded dishwasher and turned on; washed remaining dished by hand and cleaned out my sink; started another load of laundry; decluttered a particularly cluttered kitchen countertop. i also talked to M on the phone tonight (he's away on business) and told him about the Fly Lady and her program, and how i'd like us both to commit to her program so we can live in a clutter-free, tidy house that doesn't make either of us stressed. he agreed to participate and even said when he gets home this weekend he'll clear off the dining table and the bar, both of which are COVERED in his paperwork! yay!!! i just heard the buzzer on the dryer go off, so i probably ought to get up, take out that load and switch the wet clothes from the washer to the dryer. of course, this would mean i should also fold and put away the dry stuff, since if i leave it overnight on the couch, the naughtycats will sleep in it!
