progress shots! finally deep cleaning this mess of a room ヽ(;▽;)ノ


This is a before/after from am earlier unfucking I did to our room. Posting for inspiration. I know even here it wasn’t completely unfucked, but I made tremendous progress.


I unfucked my habitat. In fact, the best motivation is to invite your crush over for the evening. I’ve never cleaned my room so fast. And the best thing about it: After I was done, I realized again, how beautiful my room is. Thank you, UfYH


I have become a generally neat person over the last year, and I owe it, in part, to the blog unfuckyourhabitat. However, I have had a lot going on lately with my family. The personal part of me has been gone for a while as  I have been taking care of my mom and trying to cheer her up and keep her focused on beating this. It’s amazing to go onto unfuckyourhabitat and see the befores and afters! So, here is some me  time spent well!. Thank you, unfuckyourhabitat!


Cleaned kitchen based off UFYH work/break method I mentioned earlier.


In anticipation of the arrival of my hammock and a couple of new chairs, I unfucked my porch. I had this chair that I made as a big/little sis project in college, and the paint was icky and it was not pretty , so I spray painted it silver. I also tossed some broken and rotten wood dining chairs that were out there and swept and moved stuff around. I need to see if my roommates have any attachment to the other two chairs (the purple one and the wood one with the cushion that you can see in the last picture) and if they don’t I’ll take this out as well. I think the square wooden table will go too, but I can’t carry it alone.


We’re having people over today to attend a in-home seminar, and I wanted to be able to use our extra room/office as a meeting space. I haven’t totally unfucked the office, but it’s usable and I damn sure made the job smaller.


Before and…..way, way after. 

Ok, so to be fair everything was shit because my life was in boxes until the floor got finished (LOOK AT THAT FLOORING SO PRETTY) but it was beyond bad. But now I have a nice tidy space that I actually enjoy being in


Unfucking after arriving home from a short holiday!


The first day of re-doing the funeral home offices!


Unfucking part 2!


Unfucked my treasure chest! Storing stuff properly like an adult!
Even if most of my stuff is costume/prop/priceless crafts.
Made me realize there there are a lot of jewelry that is missing…. not missing like someone took it - but missing in another treasure chest somewhere…. gotta break out the treasure maps and shovels.

Gunna get some small envelope thingies and ship off some of the of the stuff I culled to new homes. Posts to come.


Today on the attack list: The Living Room. Which didn’t look too bad….


But on closer inspection…


And the dust, oh my dear lord, that wasn’t funny anymore. Anyone with an allergy would have been dead in three seconds.

After 90 minutes of scrubbing and tidying, it now looks like this:


Of course, the bag in the vacuum cleaner was already full. *sigh* Going to order one with a water filter tomorrow, because the bag system is just not satisfying. By the way, the combination of really long hair and a shaggy carpet is a lethal one for any vacuum cleaner.

What else did I do:
- the breakfast dishes before leaving for work - huzzah!
- mopped the kitchen floor
- forced the firefighter to strip the bed, so that I can put on fresh sheets
- cooked a real meal from scratch, which is so much nicer in a tidy kitchen

This puts two rooms into “grown up” mode, the rest still looks like we’re in a fraternity house.


So it’s been a while but I’ve been unfucking my life and it’s all thanks to un fuck your habitat and the patience of my fiancée, and dog lol. Clean linen, organized organized organized and even dusted in places no one but my fiancées allergies will know about


Let the great unfucking begin.

I moved into my new place nearly 9 months ago, and have never really finished unpacking (in the numerous moves prior to this one), and never really got set up.  So much of my unfucking is putting things in places they’re meant to be roughly.  Otherwise I’d be bogged down for a millenia.  Add to that I have recently been diagnosed with CFS, so I have to do things in a manageable fashion.  I’m concentrating on surfaces and then letting the rest follow at the moment.  Then I’ll deal with cupboards and drawers.  I figure those can wait, since nobody can actually see them, so they only bother me.  

This was an afternoon of Supernatural, and 10 minutes of work with a 10 minute break.  Sometimes more or less depending on what my body needed.  This is half the loungeroom.  The other half is shelves, shelves and more shelves.

There’s still a few things that aren’t where they need to be, but… until I get the rest of the house sorted, they have to stay where they are.  Otherwise I’ll just have a leaning tower of stuff in the house.

On top of this I have a list of things to unfuck that aren’t so much cleaning as fixing, updating and selling stuff.  Sigh.
