Thanks Htoun, I'm doing well! I really got a lot done while I was out of work recuperating. Spouse would put a box by my chair and I would sort while I watched TV. To just go through that stuff without some of entertainment would've driven me crazy!

At least im feeling more energetic! I put new drawer pulls on my 2 kitchen drawers - it was very hard but i finally found a pull with movable posts, i have old metal cupboards in my tiny 50's apartment galley kitchen - so now i can hang a dishcloth on one, and a trashbag on the other (close to the sink and cutting board). Its a tiny improvement, but it makes life so much easier!

New drawer pulls is like the thrill of a snazzy new outfit!!!!! Finding the type of parts that worked in the 50's in our modern throw everything away society is not an easy task, good for you Unaluna!

I did a little sorting under the bathroom sink this morning. I found some old dried up makeup and tossed it without hesitation! Now I have more organized space under there. It's not completed but at least started.

I've been sulking... not a good use of time. The annual Book sale is coming up. I only have two boxes of books to donate. Have to drive them over before the 22nd so some things will leave.

My daughter is still looking for a house. So I still have the hope of getting her stuff out of her hopefully before my youngest son moves home... or failing that before winter comes again. Moving when it's -29C is horrid. Been there done that thinking about making the t-shirt

Okay, back to tossing.
OMG! I noticed I have the same thing. I want to do something which I think is important for me. But then I like...freeze... like the time stops and I leave those things and do nothing about them..... Like they stop being important for me! I do some other things...And then I wake up and I suddenly see I didn't do it. But it is too late to do it!!! So I tell myself: It wasn't that big of a deal...
Maybe it is fear of commitment or fear of being rejected...

I've been working on some yard things that have been put off. Moved Nandinas from the front of the house to the back yard. I like them but they were getting too much sun and looking ugly. They'll be happier in the less sunny location. Planted boxwood, Dianthus, Euronymous, small Gardenia, Oxalis & something I don't know the name of in their place. It looks much nicer! Also planted some Azaleas on the other side in a tripod grouping at the corner of the house. Heavily mulched everything. It all looks better.

Inside I've been plugging along. Haven't done many boxes lately but that's mostly because spouse needs to do her boxes so I can get to others. She's not as enthusiastic as I am on making a neatness so who knows when that will get done. I have been organizing lots of things though. Have 2 bags of clothes ready at the door to go. Slowly but surely it's getting better!

Hey Notz my spouse isn't good at going throw his boxes either. Drives me to distraction sometimes I just do it myself but some of it is stuff he should really go through. I managed to get some weeding done but really not much outside yet. The weather is so weird not sure if it will hold don''t want to plant too early which up here means before May 24th.

I got my 2 boxes to the book sale... Sale starts tomorrow I will be going but not going crazy buying. I have been looking for an old cook book and some quilting books for years. This maybe when I find them. I've also been looking for the old home repair book for sewing machines. Time was you couldn't move without tripping over tons haven't seen them in years

Daughters still on track to be a home owner. Mortgage paper work is good just waiting on the building inspection. Cross your fingers!! On a side note asbestos house did a verbal to drop the price for her. Thankfully she said no that place was a pretty money pit it would take a lot to get it to move in condition. If everything is a go then her stuff will be moving out in June... about the time youngest moves back lol. At least he will not have bins of kitchen stuff in my basement not to mention the shelves and a dresser. I'm excited for as well as looking forward to cleaning out a bit of my place.

The inspection was good!! The same guy did it as did the asbestos house. He said this is a much better house than the last. This one is move in ready she will have to have the boiler looked at but it's newer than we thought. With a June 23 possession date she shouldn't have to worry about heat for a few months. I'm tempted to rent a trailer and deliver her stuff. But that would be mean and with an end in sight I can wait.

Okay, a little over a month since i last reported in.

Today i dusted, vacuumed, and rearranged the living / exercise area in my studio apartment. Hopefully it will be conducive to more exercising and less lolling. The rearranging was a workout in itself.
