Last week was one of those weeks that was very trying, on the mind and body.
I worked outside the home for the most part being a landlady and a driver.
If I would have made all my appointments, I did have if not for me and Tony, or one or another a doctor appointment everyday. But there was no way I would make all of those so I had to dropped the Chiropractor a couple days for me but I did manage four days of doctors, two days with two appointments each. Anyways we are both better than before :) I am completely over that cold and Tony is mending, I am getting better with my upper back too.
Regardless of being gone, I did keep the house picked up and neat. Its easy if I just put things away after using them but sometimes others in the house won`t do that so its left for me to follow behind them.
After I had a pain block and I was not supposed to do anything but I still worked, sitting down. I was filing paper work and managing coupons. Making up the deals. Yes to bring in MORE!
Yes, I did bring in foods this past week, I had buy one get one free pizza`s at $4.50 each! and diet cokes $2.00 per twelve packs cans. I also restocked a little on the dogs food, there were coupons and sales that matched up.
I did go to a cousins yard sale because she always came to mine. But I bought flower pots for the new business and my sister some new lace curtains. (I just washed and dried those) I kind of got another outside table and chairs, I really did not want them but he sort of forced them on me. My sister is interested but she is a tightwad :) I have plenty of yard furniture but she has none, maybe she`ll come around.
Today is laundry day and I only had two loads, one more if I add the curtains, and that is a good thing. I got those washed, dried, folded and put away. I did get both beds changed and clean sheets back on those.
I took a couple trash bags of trash to my sisters because she has garbage pick up and I donated the plastic. It was not out of the way either because I had to make sure that the one rental house trash was waiting by the curb, They are evicted and have disappeared and I could not leave two trash cans packed full of trash just sitting, thats to nasty for me to walk away and leave, AND the cans are mind. I will drop by and get them out of the road after the trash truck runs.
On Monday I have a truck load of recyclables to take and cash out for money. I have not taken any this year so I have four trash bags of just aluminum cans. I also have two type of paper and cardboard to recycle.
Since its cold and hot and back and forth I have not been able to make another clear out and clean up. But I am serious about getting more out of my life and become the minimalist that I crave to be.
How about you? Did you manage anything big or small last week?
