Painting the living room is on my radar this weekend.  Monday is a holiday so I plan to use it for some decluttering and redecorating.  I bought a new chandelier for the freshly painted dining room and it’s waiting to be installed.

In order to paint I need to get the room emptied or at least the furniture away from the walls far enough to get the ladder in there to reach the ceiling.  What did I do last night?  Sat in front of the TV or computer.  Did I at least have some knitting in my hands?  No.

Instead of sitting doing SOMETHING, I sat doing nothing.  I would have felt guilty knitting when I should have been decluttering.  Make sense?  No, not to me either.  But that’s how I do things.

Can I change that about myself at my age?  I don’t know.

I have such lofty plans to do ABC when I get home from work.  Sometimes I do one of the things on my list but lately I don’t do anything I planned.  This morning I actually woke up refreshed.  Maybe tonight I’ll do something constructive.

My To-Do list for tonight:

  1. Dinner – I don’t have a choice.  It has to happen.
  2. Clean up dinner mess – Can do.
  3. Clean computer armoire in living room.
  4. Clean, empty and move small desk in living room.
  5. Find a place for the three boxes of music to live that currently reside beside the piano.  This has been something I’ve needed to do since we moved into this house.  I don’t have the right piece of furniture for this but I don’t know what is the right piece.
  6. Relocate bagpipes that also reside next to the piano.
  7. Take art down in the living room and spackle nail holes.
  8. Run a clean swiffer over the walls to get rid of any dust before painting this weekend.
  9. Finish Ms Ida mittens.
  10. Work on soaker.
  11. Knit myself a pair of seamless slippers.

And I’ll probably have three hours to do this tonight.  If I can do #1-4 and #9 tonight, I will be happy. 

Tomorrow is another day…

  1. When I am overwhelmed, I tend to sit and do nothing. The more that gets piled on my plate, the less I do. Weird, huh? I say go for #11, but that is just me. 🙂
