Today will be challenging. There are multiple things happening and I'm the coordinator. Carpet installer is coming (#2). I'm meeting with DH and additional helper at 9 who will start repairing the damaged hardwood floor(#1). A guy is coming at 10 to remove the existing piano (#3). He intends to restore it. Yay! The plumber is going to call (hopefully) and meet me to plan the plumbing fix and installation of new hot water heater (#1). Based on what all transpires I will probably be a runner for materials.
I have chosen not to bring daughter onto projects today....too many people. Tomorrow will be better.
The piano remover might be interested in renting #2. If that is the case when he gets there today I'll make some decisions regarding what's "necessary" so he could move in by the 1st. That would be great progress to get one rented.

November "Project" Daily Log (rental #1, #2, #3)
1.change locks(#3),wash all floor vents(#2), test floor stain(#2)
2. Drive up and check heat after work (real job)

5. Drive up with helper to look at bathroom(#2), remove couch and mattress and tear out carpet/pad (#3)

6. Figured out new configuration for carpet/linoleum replacement (#3)
7. 3 helpers today! We painted 4 rooms (#1) and continued cleaning ceiling (#3). I made 2 more connections regarding piano and contacted another tenant regarding a perspective renter
8. carpet process started (#2&3)...we picked out carpet and got set up in the system for our measure, visited restore and picked up some electrical covers, dropped curtains off for drycleaning(#2) and had 3 helpers cleaning/painting#1/3)
9. worked at restaurant but did go up after work and did initial tear out in bathroom that needs complete tear out. (#2)
10. did home chores before work. Sunday....no work at the rental projects
11. Called homedepotcredit before work to order addl. card and change mailing address. Went up after work and checked each vacant rental to make sure heat/water was ok for my leaving. Noticed heating vents hadn't been put back in after floor painting (#3) so I put them back before leaving.
12. Ended vitamixprocrastination and resolved ongoing issue.
13. Called and made appt. for carpet measure,(#2/3) called and ordered install for new gas meter,(my own rental) **successfully**took apart plumbing and fixed my own tub drip.
14. Worked on my bathroom tub reno at swimhouse for 1 hr and traveled over to meet carpet measurer.

Yesterday could have really darkened my attitude, but I know that's a major trigger for unplanned/overeating. I chose to remain positive.
The carpet installer broke down and couldn't make it to the project. The plumbers suggested fix for the water issue will be far more extensive than I had hoped. The piano/perspective renter didn't show. Oh, well. We made progress forward, anyway. Credit....and I did not let this all "get to me".
Today we will make a major push for scrubbing hardwood floors because once the plumber starts we will not have water for awhile.
DH fell on the ice yesterday and went right to bed after we returned home. Instead of plunking down in front of the TV I chose to work on personal stuff in the house. Credit.

That's a lot to deal with Lexxiss, especially when it's not going according to plan. Kudos for not letting it get to you and for keeping positive.

I plan to do 10 minutes of filing tomorrow, holiday or no, because I don't want to break my streak.

BBE, yesterday I went online and registered the furnace we had installed this month. Just this morning I looked at the paper and noted to myself-make a permanant (findable) file for this. It's amazing how easy it is once you go back through and get the old stuff organized.

gardenerjoy, yay for continuing your streak! Mine is automatic now, and it's made a huge difference in my life.


This morning was my first leisurely wake up for ages, that is, after I went up to the project at 4am and confirmed my Thanksgiving gift; that the leak under the kitchen sink seems to have temporarily ceased....giving me a needed break from 24/7 pan dumping duty.
Yesterday, DH and helper finished the hardwood flooring repairs and DD and I spent 7 hours each on our hands and knees deep scrubbing on those same floors. It could have been agonizing, yet I constantly find gratitude, that with my weightloss I am able to physically do these things. Credit.
Today, DH and I did spend about an hour discussing our "fix" for the kitchen cabinets. The bottom configuration is in pretty tough shape and we figured a way to accomplish a fix which will be inexpensive, far nicer than just painting the original, and will give us access to fix the area underneath which has been damaged by the water leak (over time). That's enough for today.
My home is in good shape and I enjoyed doing some tasks this morning that helps keep me caught up. Yay.

Great work, everyone!

Getting things done is MAJOR

Lexxiss, wanted to ask, did the drywall guy respond to your carefully worded email?

Yesterday was a surprise attack on another household heartache of mine! DH's abandoned work station. Thick, horrid dust on ever surface; computer, monitor, stacks of software discs from a decade or two (I found a floppy!!) TWO scanner/printers, and a rat's nest of cables and wires snaking and coiling through all. Do you know the frustration level when you track one cable from one end, uncoil/untangle it through a dozen others, only to find that it wasn't even attached to anything

anyway DH had promised Years ago to do this..I would have done it myself but I would have thrown everything out or freecycled. He got a large storage container and went through most everything, wiped it all off, and put a ton of stuff in the container (which I don't agree with, because now it's all in a container and someone has to deal with THAT) but at least it got the area cleared; then our son took a monitor and printer out to my car for freecycle; then I wiped/dusted/cleaned and now have a cleared center

a tip when you are cleaning a horrid dusty area, certainly wear a respirator or mouth/nose mask if you have one; I didn't, but I continuously drank water and i think that helped alot.

this morning I sat at that cleared, cleaned area and it felt so good!!!

VermontMom: great job getting the dusty job done. If you don't have a face mask, try a dampened kerchief tied bandit style. We use them for yard work, too, and they're effective.

On Small Business Saturday, I bought plain white tea cups so we can quit drinking tea out of cups with cartoon characters on them. I feel so grown up.
