Not as productive as I wanted to be this week.
Some of it I blame on the return of the humid weather and the a/c went on the fritz.  Not even a year old and it broke!  Serviceman isn't coming out until TUESDAY.  By then the weather is suppose to be cooler.  With the amount spent on this system it's been nothing but one problem after another and I am NOT happy with SEARS!

Anyway, too muggy to be upstairs during the day doing physically active tasks with no a/c this past week....especially working in closets up there.
That's my story and I'm sticking too it.

Did you get anything of note accomplished this past week?
Tell us about it.



  1. I washed a ton of dishes that stacked up when I had latest round of ear and sinus problems. That cleared half the sink. Half of the counter was cleaned of other stuff. To show you how much I did, exbf said, "WOW! " when he saw it. He rarely comments effusively. Plus I filled four huge garbage bags with paper and other stuff that needed to go. My neighbor dragged a heavy, orange wooden ladder to the road for trash pickup. I lopped lots of limbs despite the pain.

  2. I did get a few items listed on Ebay. And I cleaned out one of our spare rooms and threw away a bunch of papers we no longer needed. Still have a bit that I would like to get done though.

  3. You also said "spare room" hee hee hee! Have fun with it:)

  4. Sounds like a solid week! I rolled over my 401K, so that feels like a big accomplishment. Why is there so much paperwork involved?!

  5. things accomplished this past week... why, yes. I made a list entitled "things that would make me feel less hoardery." And then I went about knocking a lot of those things off the list. My shower looks amazingly clean now and the side tables in the living room are bare naked, other cluttery things taken care of as well. Ah, a breath of fresh air!

    I think lack of AC is a perfectly great excuse for what you were unable to check off the list!
