Whistle While You Work…


Ah, if only I could! Starting into week four with little energy or lung capacity. Newell blames it on the cleaning stirring up mold. He may well be right. It’s an upward slog, but I’m not giving up. Just struggling…and not making my three hours most days last week. That has to change!

So, I swore to get back on track today. Let’s see what the dice have to say.

Roll one: Outside. No. It is cold and gray outside, and I really can’t garden or anything at the moment, so it’s a re-roll for INSIDE. Took four rolls for it to reluctantly agree to upstairs instead of outside…is someone trying to tell me something?

Upstairs, computer room for 15 minutes. Starting off slow and easy today. And I think I know where to go. It will take about that long to get this bit tidied away.

Clearing the space in front of the old electronics storage closet would be a right good thing. 🙂

UPDATE ONE: And here ya go.

Tossed some old cables, boxed up some components, sorted stuff where it belonged. Good 15 minutes.

Next up: 30 minutes in the pantry. Why do the dice love that room so much? I do have some more mopping to do in there, and a bit of sorting, so I’ll get on it. But first I think I need to find some lunch!

UPDATE TWO: Mopped for about fifteen minutes, but that was all I could handle. It did take care of many of the worst spots. I forgot to take pictures — as I always seem to do in the pantry. And I am exhausted today. Going to lie down for awhile and see if I can get back to work a bit later. I am sorry for all the shortened days lately…it irritates the heck out of me too…

UPDATE THREE: I am admitting defeat. Today isn’t going any further. 😦 But I rolled my first chore of tomorrow: 1 hour 30 minutes in the Master Bath, and I will get on it as soon as Newell is off to work. I promise. A good night’s sleep tonight may make a world of difference. I’m about to test that theory. G’ nite.

DAILY WRAP UP: 15 minutes in Computer Room + 15 minutes in Pantry = Disappointing Day. Being sick sucks.
