Working Wednesday: Let’s Just Rest

Since a lot of us are off this week (except those of us who are not), let’s take a break and take it easy. No?  Okay, what are you working on?

    Despite my cold I’m continuing with my goal of cleaning every cupboard, drawer and closet in my home. I don’t think I’ll get it done by the end of December, but I’ve made great strides. And no, I don’t have a huge home, I just have to do one thing a day, and if I miss a day, I have to make up for it the next time. It seems to work.

    In January I start the paperwork project, and finish up whatever wasn’t done in the December project.

    For those who are taking it easy, carry on. That’ll be me next year.

    Susanne, your focus is inspiring.

    I am working and reminding myself to be grateful to have work…especially work that allows me to take a nap.

    I’m sick but I’m trying to work because work tends to slow down this week and I’m planning on taking Dec 31/Jan 1 off to do nothing but watch tv and maybe nap.

    I have a chiropractor appointment this afternoon so, really, I’m only working for another hour and a half or so because when we get home we are watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1.

    I’m taking off work-work until Friday. But I really need to find another hand project now that Grandaughter’s Christmas stocking is done.

    Don’t want to think about all the paperwork on my desk that I really should get sorted out.

    We go on a short visit to friends on the 31st so I am making a huge effort to finish my current varnishing project before then. I want it done before January. So I can then start on my next door and door frame. Sigh. Old houses have a lot of woodwork and the person who thought it would be a great idea to paint it all should be punished or made to read all of that idiot in the WH’s tweets. Oh I guess that would be to inhumane.

    And friends come over tomorrow night for a simple supper and a jigsaw puzzle. Fun to balance the drudgery.

  6. I’ve wiped myself out driving home so I can get back to work. It took seven and a half hours instead of four – so the last three were in the dark. Including half an hour just to get up the slip road to a motorway service station for a very late lunch. I’m resolved not to drive so close to Christmas again. Might have to take tomorrow off to recover, though I hope not – I’d rather get the work done as fast as I can, in the hope it’ll give me time off next week.

  7. I thought I was going to get a lot done this week, but … not so much. And today I gave myself permission to just go with the flow until the end of the year, with a fresh start next Monday. Anything I get done in the meantime is just gravy, and if I don’t do anything, that’s okay too.

    I’m resting. Walking when weather permits it. Cooking lots of good healthy meals. Resting. Resting more. Reading, knitting, listening to podcasts, watching movies, sleeping. I’ve got the week off. Normally I use weekends and any other time off to do errands and chores, but this week I’m resting instead. All the work and chores will still be there next week.

    This week is definitely holiday – I will head into new office on Tuesday 2nd to start getting my head round the departments I’ll be supervising and outstanding stuff that needs dealing with from last term.

    Tomorrow, I’m giving my mother her Christmas treat – we’re going on a day trip to London, where we will see an exhibition on the Scythians at the British Museum, followed by lunch and then Cezanne’s portraits at the National Portrait Gallery.

    Friday, serious stuff starts again – I have to take my iMac in to get the hinge repaired, because it is one of the 2013-2014 models with plastic clips that wore out, and apparently, Apple is going to cover the cost of the repair. I have to get Minion 1’s paperwork sorted because he has failed to organise himself properly to be fully registered at university and is now appealing against being kicked out…we’re having to play ADHD and depression cards, both true but elements of his make up he doesn’t like to admit to. And I have to start the dreary process of officially importing our car from the Isle of Man to mainland UK, which needs to be done in the next 10 days…Sigh, admin.

    Unemployed so working on nothing. Am supposed to be packing today. Instead I had a massage. Supposed to be packing tomorrow. Instead will be doing volunteer work at the hospital in the morning. At the same time I can sign some more papers about the hospital acquisition. Go to Wal-Mart to pick up drugs and get tooth brush for the trip. Make brownies to send to grandson in Afghanistan. They will probably melt. Friday I HAVE to pack. We leave Saturday.
    This week I read Victoria’s Daughters. Queen Victoria and her 6 daughters. Amazing the influence this family had in Europe and England. An impulse made me buy this book and a couple of others (Mitford Sisters, the Churchills’, Irena’s Children. This is so not like me .
    Today I registered for the Coastal Magic Conference in February (after we get back from the cruise) in Daytona. It has been too long since I was at an author/reader conference.

    Thanks MJ. It helps to keep me on track when I know I’m coming here every Wednesday. This is a long overdue project.

    Having work is something to be truly grateful for — so many don’t have work. Enjoy your naps 🙂

  12. Still working on the book and on the house although both are sloooow. It got so cold in the house today that I stopped and made myself mitts out of bulky Chroma Twist, bulky so I could make them fast and Chroma Twist so they’d be bright and fund to look at. Mostly just trying to keep warm enough to survive until next Monday when this @#$%^&* cold snap is supposed to break.
