Organization–Part I


Brenda arrived at 8:30 a.m. today and we worked for 2 hours. I was exhausted. We did clear off the coffee table, which is something I really wanted done. The only thing is, we put things in boxes and I don’t really know where anything is. But we did organize things and threw out a lot of stuff. Thank goodness. We use a lot more boxes than I thought we would, so I will have to get more boxes at Home Depot this week.

I was sweating and turned beet red, of course, from the work. (Irish skin) But now there are boxes around and I have to do something with them. I plan on cleaning off the bookshelves this week and keeping only a few books that I can’t bear to part with. The others I can sell or give away. I have to pack up the china and crystal for Sabrina, too. Brenda suggested that I get Sabrina to help me to move the TV closer to the stairs and make more room for an office area. It is a good idea. I can get stackable boxes to store office things,

The big problem is getting Sabrina to come over and help me with things like putting the bin together and moving furniture. She said she would come over this weekend to help, but I haven’t heard from her today at all. But since she got fired, she should have time to come over to help. SHOULD, but probably won’t. I could call her tomorrow, but I imagine she will be too busy. But I will try to get her to come over and help. It’s typical that she promises and never follows through.

I have a wicked headache tonight. I don’t know where it came from, but it is nasty. I can’t eat; I am thirsty but not hungry. I panicked when I knocked my nose ring out of my nose. I went down to Buddha Box but they weren’t open yet. So I somehow managed to get it back in when I was sitting in the parking lot.

I have to work on my financial aid statement tomorrow. Walden has everything they need so William can submit it to the enrollment committee. I am hoping I get into The Chicago School, but any of the three are good and I will be happy to get into any of them. I have to take money out to pay for tuition. I’ll call Bart on Monday to get money transferred for tuition since I won’t be able to get the financial aid in time. I hate doing those financial things, but that has to be done in order to go to school.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
