I feel overwhelmed, yet also as though I’m slowly dragging myself out of this pit of “stuff to do.” I guess that’s just the joy of being a depressive with some organizational skills.
The fourth contractor comes by tomorrow to look over the project. So far, only the handyman has sent in his bid: $1500 plus the cost of a Bagster (to save on dump fees). Based on those numbers, I’m afraid to see what the masons will charge. But I guess I’ll find out soon enough.
I also gave up on the idea that I’d really get out to fax the documents for the refinance. So I found and downloaded the drivers for my all-in-one printer. I’ll scan the documents in, though probably not til tomorrow. I also called in my prescriptions before they completely ran out. Sadly, that’s novel.
We need to go grocery shopping no later than tomorrow. I’ve found a new motivation to make myself cook: I checked our bank balance and found out how much we’d spent in the first two days of our financial week. After unswallowing my tongue, I went out and dumped some tomatoes and beans into the crock pot to make chili.
In the meantime, Tim and I have been slowly getting the house a little cleaner.
Last night, he did a bunch of laundry, and I ran the Roomba in various parts of the house. (What’s better than having your floors swept for you? Having your floors swept for you so that you can watch Game of Thrones DVDs.) The floor still needs to be mopped — thanks, pukey cats! — and for that we need Swiffer WetJet solution. Still, it’s nice not to pick crumbs off my feet.
We’ve also been getting better about putting dishes in the dishwasher as they get dirty. Tim’s agreed to unload the dishwasher every time.
And last weekend, we finally hung some more pictures in the living/dining room. And it only took us three years to get around to it.
I still need to clean our shower stall for the first time in I-don’t-want-to-remember-how-long. But there will always be something that needs to be done, so I’m just trying to enjoy what we’ve accomplished so far. I’m hoping that we can get the place clean enough that Tim’s comfortable having people over for a game night in the near future.
