Day 3.2(b) What Are We Supposed To Do, Again?

(I forget where I got this. PotteryBarn?)

I was going to ignore this week.
I was going to paint the dining room.
However, I've hit a huge logistical snag--I don't know where to put everything and a project which has been tying up the dining room and which I had thought was done is now, once again, to be re-done.
I feel like crying.
I feel like stamping my feet.
I feel like sleeping the rest of the week.
None of these would be terribly productive, so I may as well focus on what Maxwell says I should be doing.

Bones.Vaccuum, dust and mop, the floors. You know, they do actually need it again. Poot.
Clean your entrance and any related closets.The front entryway is fine. The back entryway is an entirely different story. And what do you do when the closet is mostly full of stuff that belongs to someone else? How many coats does a man need anyway? (Apparently, seven. Plus two fleece pullovers for work. 09/27)Arrange to have all repairs taken care of in the next three weeks.
Yeah, right.

Declutter your entrance
Well, the front is mostly fine. The back could use some putting away of the summer stuff. Again, though, I need to ask: how many shoes does a man need?
Move all old mail, catalogs and magazines to the outbox. OK. I had planned to do this.
Look into what you would need to create a landing strip.
Cancel any unused subscriptions.
Only one subscription. Keeping it.

Heart:Identify cool rooms and warm rooms.Done.
Apply the 80/20 rule.
I may take a stab at this. Just to see.

Head:Cook two meals at home this week.Of course
Design an invitation for your housewarming.No comment.

One Room Remedy:All done. I'm actually on week six of this project (and will be for several more!)

I have lurked for so long on apt therapy (and subsequently your blog) that when I saw your comment I felt quite star struck! Chin up! You're doing great!
