I removed the game apps from my Facebook, and have not logged in much lately.
Instead of FB being what I read, I now read your emails and delete ones I do not need immediately (rather than like in the past just letting them pile up and deleting them all unseen). Been reading your emails daily for a couple weeks now.
I have physical problems that prevent me from doing much, so I have NO problem stopping after 5 or 15 minutes.
I use the cooking-timer I have had for decades, but can really just use my back as a timer. Your timer and shipping is a lot of money for me, but I like that yours has that motivation message permanently on it. I may try to get one one day.
When I get around to installing my printer maybe I will type up a blank page with your quote and use that for the cover of my journal (which I also made this week, thanks to FlyLady Diane’s videos, I finally blindly followed the baby steps, I looked at the all the videos in just 2 days because I have been a member but never really looking at the baby steps. I just did your missions now and then, trying to cement routines). I still don’t have one cemented. But that has always been a problem for me. I can not even remember to take medicine regularly!
But reading your emails and watching other videos reminds at the least do things occasionally, and I might do them faithfully for a while. Doing SOMETHING, now and then, is good right, even if it is not a routine. Better than doing nothing at all.
Fridays are car and purse days.
Last week I ONLY did the little I could, (removed trash, dusted dash and wiped front window and removed the 3 mulch bags from LAST year that sat in my car).
Just now, I had a bit of strength and decided to just do the back/trunk of my Scion xB. It is more of a station wagon. But the blanket I keep in there could have used a shake out last week but I just could not manage it, then. And today the carpet back there needs a good vacuum, but I don’t have the energy to pull that out of the house, so I have a rubber bristled brush like yours and took that out It did a “…good enough…” job on the backs of the seats, the cloth headrests and the carpet. Got my blanket shaken out too. Blanket needs a wash, but that is for another day.
Today my washer is busy washing my bedding. It is zone 4 the end of the bed. I decided to go through my 4 containers of bedding and wash, combine, discard, & giveaway . I may not be able to CHANGE my bed today, but the sheets will be organized to do that another day, instead of in 4 places.
Back to the car.
I am retied, no kids. Have 3 indoor, constantly shedding cats. So my car is FULL of cat hair that rubs off of me and items I have been saving up to take to recycle.
But faithfully doing your Friday car cleaning these past 2 weeks, shows me how even a small bit of work, (that I am only able to do with my physical problems), compounds to show improvements. Thank you.
I don’t use my car much anymore being retired, so the little I can do stays done. So I am lucky I can see that compounding effect with the little effort. My back seat needs work, but I see now, that I do NOT have to do it all, or perfectly to feel a sense of peace and enjoyment with the car’s appearance.
Morning musing, (smiles)
