I did a little tidying before I took this photo:
This is after one 20/10:
This is a couple days later after another 20/10:
I’m slowly, but surely, turning my table back into a surface that can be used. My biggest problem is that I don’t know where to put all of my med school notes, so they’ve just been cluttering up the table. I’ve been patiently putting them into binders by subject and will need to find a place to store those binders, but it’s left the table in a much happier state. Maybe I’ll be able to do schoolwork at it soon! Or even eat a meal at it!
And until then, this sign will be put on my computer every night before bed. No internetting until I do at least one 20/10!
I officially jumped on the Unfuck Your Habitat bandwagon and I am not sad about it one bit. I’d drink the kool-aid.
This morning I did two 20/10’s before work. I’m pretty confident about it!
The first was in the kitchen, forgot the before, but there were dishes, clutter, trash that had to go out and recycling as well.
My kitchen is way too colorful… point being, dishes were washed, counter was cleared, the trash was taken out and the recycling, I even gathered the trash from everywhere in the house and took that out, and items were put back where they belong - such as Ketchup, and peanut butter… why are they always sitting out!?
My twenty minutes was up so I drank my coffee and played with the dogs before tackling the next job! :D
The bedroom. I’m a mess. And because of my poly lifestyle, I spend 50% of my time at my house with the husband, and 50% of my time at my other house with the boyfriend. So I live out of bags a lot, travel bags, makeup bags, jewelry bags, I’ve got a bag for everything. So my bedroom gets neglected a lot. I let things pile, I don’t put things away, I just generally ignore it. And I’m ashamed. Extremely ashamed. Especially when people come over. I try to close the door, but who am I kidding?
I don’t even know. Also, I have dogs if you can’t tell by that epic pink pig. That’s Julep’s FAVORITE toy. It goes everywhere. Anyway, I’m a mess. This is a mess. There’s nail polish, jewelry, hair things, clothing, unnecessary items just strewn about, a bag of clothes to be donated, a shake weight that was a great buy (sarcasm), shoes everywhere…. So I tackled it.
Clearly I did not get EVERYTHING done, but as it was this morning before work… I limited myself to one 20/10 in the bedroom. I got most everything from my dresser put where it should be and that was clearly a challenge. I have so many hair ties now! And bobby pins. And all the nail polish is where it belongs! It’s getting there. My closet is pretty bad, I organized my shoes a bit but that was about it. I did tackle my nightstand and I did not take a before picture… whoops. It holds my pj’s and they were all over the floor, I was literally walking on my clothing. And the top of the nightstand had things that belonged in the medicine cabinet, my dresser, the kitchen,… Oy.
And I’ve been successfully making my bed for the past few days consistently, a few weeks not so consistently but forming a habit is hard!
It’s definitely a work in progress. It’s tiring! But I like this outlook especially balancing two different houses, I always let things get out of control. I don’t have as much control/freedom at the boyfriend’s house because it is HIS house and I’m not really sure where his things go, but this house I pretty much control everything, so hopefully I’ll get this one 100% unfucked, and the other one I’m aiming for 95% unfucked!
Oh and here’s Julep… Just in case you needed proof, she’s the tri-color cavalier, Evee is her big sister on the right the Blenheim cavalier. They make me smile, lots.
