Gobnait does the same old thing

Recommended Posts

I am rebelling against the current class system by being an innkeeper.  I'm also rebelling against having physical fitness goals in favor of having my environment be fit.  (Hey, a decent couple hours of housework are about all I can handle right now.)  A lot of my goals will seem familiar because they are, but I don't think it's too unreasonable to keep trying to make them stick.  The points I'm assigning now might not correlate to the xp my character gets later.

 

Tea Goal:

make tea: 9 points

drink tea: 1 point

 

I'm not sure how to score this if I end up not drinking the tea until the next day.  I have a little trouble with getting dehydrated and tea's about the healthiest thing I like.  

 

Cumulative Chore List:

Dishwasher: 

ready to receive dirty dishes first thing in the morning: 10 points

ready to receive dirty dishes by noon: 5 points

ready to receive dirty dishes the previous night but forgot to check in the morning: 5 points

Build the rest of the chore chart

 

When I was doing Chore Wars, I was a bit better about working on the house.  Things are a bit out of hand and chaotic so it's not going to be as easy as seeing a chore and doing the chore yet, but hopefully I'll be able to get one of those tasks into an easy category.  The dishwasher thing is one thing that I've noticed that can keep the chaos down.  If it's receiving dirty dishes, that means I have a place to put most of the dirty dishes, and the kitchen doesn't become a disaster area.

 

Use the paper planner:

 

No points because it's a soft goal.  I printed out a month of the Passion Planner and now I have to figure out what to do with it.  Probably not my long-running to-do list because I think a whiteboard would be better.

 

Less procrastination on the computer:

 

I tend to lose time while hanging out on the internet.  It actually gave me anxiety when hubby half-suggested that he lock down the internet connection while he's at work.  There is now a remote lamp-control module on the network switch, we just need to figure out how to program it.  I'll still be able to use Netflix and look up stuff on my tablet, but I won't be hampster-wheeling on websites.

 

Pay attention to the frogs:

 

If you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, that's probably the worst thing that's going to happen to you that day.  If you wait and leave it on your plate, it's going to be lurking there all day and distracting you from simpler tasks.  http://play.simpletruths.com/movie/eat-that-frog/ 

 

I don't necessarily have to do the most unpleasant thing first, especially if freezing up about it keeps me from doing other stuff.  I just can't let it bother me at all whether I do it or not.

I always find innkeepers to be admirable characters, especially if they're Kvothe in Name of the Wind. There's really something to be said for keeping a house clean and organized. Best of luck at being a great innkeeper, you've got this!

I didn't dishwasher first thing, but I think I got it done before sunrise.  I got it dirty-ready again mid-day

 

I think I should lower the bar depending on sleep schedule.  I complained about us going to bed at 8:30 even though I was struggling not to fall asleep on the couch until I knew what time it was.  I got more than my typical 6 hours of sleep by getting about 8, hubby seems to have gotten the 10 he strives for, though there was a lot more snoring than usual.  (I count my sleep as time spent in bed because I think I sometimes dream about just being awake in bed and not being bothered to get up.) 

 

We went out for a externally-false reason, ended up at a store... I bought a 4x8 dry erase wall panel because I convinced hubby to cut it up to save money.  The disadvantage is that I could have bought two small magnetic boards ready-to-go for a little more.

 

The board is going to be cut into my to-do list, my honey-do list for hubby, hubby's honey-do list for me, my chore-chart, and then whatever else we need whiteboard panel for.

 

The subject came up, hubby put forth the to-do list that he wants me to do..... I am unconvinced that he'd rather I prioritize mopping the floor over cooking dinner, so I'm going to check on that thing later.

 

The tea thing was me suddenly realizing that I would probably get hungry-thirsty after the thing and made a go-mug full of green-based.  I didn't drink all of the 16-0z.  (I think my pot is 32 oz.) 

 

Score for today, adequate divided by low expectations.  (I intent to do actually better when things are actually better.)

Well done for managing most of it. It's a good start. Have you ever heard of flylady? It's a good system for trying to get adult things under control.

Flylady seemed confusing, but I can try her again.  Getting into a bra and pants with pockets is helpful, but I would skip the shoes if my feet didn't need padding.  Following her schedule for now seems too overambitious.

 

I didn't do dishwasher completely first, but I was loading it again pretty early today, so 10 out of participation.  I really should try to get the dishwasher at least half-unloaded to make it easier tomorrow, but I'm not beating myself up if it doesn't happen until morning.

 

I made a go-mug of tea and drank it, didn't make a pot later even though I was thirsty, so participation out of participation.

 

(I'm being lazy and not worrying about the score right now.)

 

I dragged one of the inactive computers upstairs for storage, I could lift the other one but I noped out of trying the stairs with it.

 

I transferred the batteries to a couple of pencil boxes and put them in a drawer instead of having a large box devoted to batteries.  (About half had exploded or got leaked on.)

 

I decided to throw away the padding from an old futon-like couch.  Not happening this week because the garbage can is a bit full.  I took the can out to the street.

 

I marked the whiteboard so hubby can cut it apart.

 

On my to-do list is trying to figure out what to do about my car battery.

I started the day in nope mode, or nope mode started too early, so I to-do listed my car's battery to another day.  I parked on the street for easy jump-start without remembering that we have a car battery charger in the garage that could get the engine going.

 

I unloaded the bottom of the dishwasher and decided that the top needed another go, got frustrated when the same glasses were dirty and put them in my foot-soaking tub.  I got an E for effort and a nice sticker even though I was on the nope-bus.

 

My big accomplishment for the day was changing the furnace filters.

 

I did a load of laundry, but I'm behind.  I stopped doing laundry because I need to deal with the clean stuff.  Hubby's vacation clothes were part of that, but I'm still behind.

 

I dumped the cat-boxes.  I think it's not worth getting the clumping stuff because I can't get to scooping it before there is a problem.  (I'm thinking that part of it is me being used to one cat that preferred to go outside until I locked the cat-flap.)

 

I have some boxes that I need to drag upstairs, I need to get upstairs arranged.

 

I promised hubby that I would take half of my fabric stash to my mother.  (It's just about all aspirational clutter.)  I have a month to figure out which half.  (There is a set of four matching totes, and a set of two totes that are larger... I think I'll limit myself to the two large totes. I could probably compress the rest into two of the small totes and transport them nested.)

 

Tea goal, 0 out of "what the hell is wrong with you."  I even poured about 2 oz of coffee down the drain because I asked hubby to make an extra sip of coffee and ended up not drinking any.

 

Pot roast refused to thaw, I should have pulled some stew-meat out of the freezer this morning.  Hubby's water-defrosting some lamb that I fine-diced over Christmas and probably making stew/casserole.

I'm having a bad week and beating myself up just a little about not posting in other people's threads. 

 

I managed to put the pot-roast in... I didn't put the package in a dish, so I should have washed the cheese-drawer and a shelf today.  Yesterday, hubby made a lovely stew.

 

I had clean the cutting boards and knives on my to-do list, and the couch is full of clean laundry.  I did not do anything.

 

I didn't make tea... I'm low enough on water that I'll quaff it raw, but only until I'm not dehydrated... I won't drink enough beyond survival even with flavor.

 

I did good with the dishes, and hope that I'm caught up enough to establish a pattern.

Don't beat yourself up over the threads! I feel like for some reason this challenge exploded with so many threads from people I want to cheer on and it's so overwhelming!

 

Yay for getting caught up on the dishes! That's awesome! And hey, at least the laundry on the couch is clean!

 

Last challenge, I got in the habit of finishing three things a day. Mine is related to work tasks, not home tasks, but it might work for you. The goal is, by the end of the day to finish three things. They don't have to be big things - cleaning the cutting boards and knives are multiple tasks. But it's nice because even on bad days, I know I can get through three things!

 

Following along and rooting for you this challenge!

I had somehow missed your party from yesterday, the nope party. Oh yes, I can relate! I'm having a nope party with the dishes this week. I keep telling myself I'm going to put some disco on, or bingewatch NCIS, and just get them done in one fell swoop. I've been telling myself this for 3 days now. It's good to know other people have nope days, too. Reading your thread is encouraging!

How did the foot bath soak do for the glasses?

I felt overwhelmed with two cat boxes when we had cats. I wish I'd thought of just buying the cheap clay litter and dumping it. Good idea.

And you also sew?! Me, too! Although I haven't sewn in a year. Last year I had so much work that I spent Craft Night (weekly gathering of crafty women at my house) working on my customers' orders. But I'm all caught up, and there's a bra project just waiting for me, I have everything I need. .. except motivation.

Hahaha on the tea goal, 0 out of what the hell. Yeah, been there. I had some Stash mandarin spice at a meeting yesterday, I always carry a packet or two of sealed tea bags in my purse. It's been awhile since I had that one.

I've done the same thing with coffee, made a fourth of a pot, or tried to be smart and made a little in the French press. ..and forgot all about it by the time it was done brewing/steeping. I hate throwing good flavored water away, lol!

It sounds like you did better yesterday. Like everyone else said, don't beat yourself up about reciprocating. Everyone understands and that's not why we follow you anyway. (Well, I hope it's not! )

Alas my couch is also full of laundry, and instead of carrying the basket upstairs, I grabbed a pair of underwear and called it good. Must set the hubby to folding today.

Yay on being caught up with the dishes!

Threads:  It is January, so there is a lot more to try to pay attention to.  I hate that New Year's resolution tradition.  There are people in gyms that have it worse and have to wait until the drop-outs actually give up.  Right now is a good time to resolve to carry gloves in my car, or to wear my winter coat instead of a windbreaker, but back where we actually had snow and temperatures that made a coat actually necessary, I made spring resolutions.

 

The beating myself up isn't too big of a deal.  I have some asperger traits, and my training on social rules is a bit dated.  Commenting on other people's threads shifts the thinking from "of course they aren't posting on your thread, you aren't posting on theirs" to amorphous thoughts about people having nothing to say for reasons that have as much to do about them as they do about me.

 

Surprise, I might have mental problems instead of just being weird.

giphy.gif

 

I posted in my last challenge that I'm not allowed to say that I didn't do enough.  I am allowed to be a little bit upset that I had several hours to chip away at any one task and didn't lay hands on any of them.  My mom has her daily ten, and has embraced the idea of writing them on popsicle sticks to reinforce how they don't need to be done in order.  Me being able to say that I did three things might help.

 

tumblr_nq90ofKtX21s8n4fho1_500.jpg

 

Sometimes we all need to nope.

 

The quote is... "If anyone needs me, I will be in my blanket fort, coloring."  And that seems to be a theme that I'm starting to embrace. 

 

(I'm actually going to visit my mother this winter for a lot of selfish reasons.  ((She's got my Lego collection and I want to bury my forearms in it.... actually, I'm going because I was reading a watercolor book last June and realized how much I miss winter.))  She's got a to-do list for me, part of it is setting up my old bed back in my old bedroom and making it into a nice guest-room.  She seems very open to my input, especially because it makes sense.  We're going to make a canopy bed mostly because it's a north room at the end of the furnace duct with no insulation.  Summer mode is going to be mosquito netting and lighter curtains.  ((Semi-permanent blanket fort!  I bought a bunch of LED string-lights.))  I'm going to bring her my DVD shelf-tower because I'm not using it effectively and it's good for a guest room.)   

 

Soaking the glasses in my footbath did not help.  Hubby has a product called PBW and I might put those particular glasses through the dishwasher with the filter not being settled right so that everything gets a good overkill wash.

 

I would try to learn to sew if I could get myself together.  If I try patchwork quilting, I'm not going to do it with vintage fabrics, so that's a whole category I can make into mom's problem again, even if she passes them on to her knitting friends.  (One year, I grabbed a random piece of fabric from my stash to wrap mom's Christmas gift in... the gift was an unspecial wooden box of tea, the wrapping was the scrap from one of my baby dresses.)

 

Today, I kinda sorted the stuff on the couch, did another load of laundry, I'm giving myself five points out of pathetic if I get the dishwasher unloaded before sunset, and I need a punishment if I don't make tea or manage to down a beer-mug of raw water.

No punishments, they reinforce the negatives and not the positives.

Just think you have done more since starting the challenge then you might have done without it.

We all have nope days. I went back to bed yesterday instead of packing for my weekend away. This meant we were late leaving, had takeout on the way and our journey took us an hour longer because of traffic

We all get good and bad days. We need to celebratethe good and let the bad days go.

You'll get there.

Alright, no punishments for missing tea.  The persistent dehydration is probably punishment enough.

 

Friday afternoon, I emptied the dishwasher because hubby asked me to, then I took a long nap.  I think he did a full cycle and then started loading the dishwasher again.  My teapot's grown mold, but I think two ceramic tankards was enough.

 

Saturday, I think I also drank two ceramic tankards full of tea.  Since I knew I wasn't going to get any housework done anyway, I took the cat to the vet.  Then after that I took my car to a part's store to get the alternator tested, it was the battery.  Hubby said that the battery was still under warranty, so it was a matter of going to the shop that sold us the battery.  I wanted him to do it, and he said not today.  One lady at the parts store gave me attitude about needing two jumps, one to test the alternator, the other to get out of their parking lot.  Dealing with the car should have been a Sunday thing, but I didn't expect it to take so long.  Then I went out again to restock the bar and get chips and snacks for a D&D group.  We only ate chili hubby made, the tuna casserole someone else brought, and some chips from what I'd already had on hand.  At least I got stuff that should be nice for lunch.

 

Hubby did good on getting the living room table clear of stuff that wasn't mine and helping get the sunroom ready for more guests than he had anticipated.  (Five, but as many as eight could have come.  There would have been a room problem unless half of us split off for board games.)  I'm looking around, and if I can succesfully add "Don't backslide" to my to-do list, I should be able to start making a bit of progress in keeping up with things.

 

But since my sleep schedule is kinda wonky, I didn't stay awake beyond character creation and everyone meeting.  My character is a druid of decay, and she stormed off to check out the situation alone after hearing that it was a zombie problem. :)  I could have conceivably re-joined once the fighting started, (hubby woke me up while looking for markers,) but I probably would have fallen asleep again anyway.

 

Since I don't know if the dishwasher is clean or dirty, I'm going to allow myself 10 points out of whatever if I get it unloaded and re-loaded before dinner.  I think I'll also give myself up to 20 points out of puffy sparkle sticker if I get through a to-do list for today.

 

D&D stuff put away, chairs and table put back where they belong, kitchen ready for Monday.

 

Convince hubby to build mail-pockets, convince hubby to cut the whiteboard to size.

It does sound reasonably productive, Gobnait. Are you going to get the battery replaced today?

I bought a new tea yesterday, and I'm skeptical about it. It's by Tazo, ands it's a black tea with cocoa, licorice, cinnamon, and I can't remember what else. I was hoping it would be a valid replacement for Stash's Chocolate Hazelnut, which I love but can't find anywhere locally and kept forgetting to order from Amazon.

Well I opened a foil pack of the Tazo chocolate and it smells weird. It was late in the day and I didn't want the caffeine to keep me awake so I didn't steep it. But I'm not hopeful on its flavor.

I agree with Rayvanna. No punishments. On the contrary, try to reinforce with "mental rewards" those things you do that match your goals.

It does sound reasonably productive, Gobnait. Are you going to get the battery replaced today?

 

 

I'm going to make hubby do it on Monday.  I wanted him to mess with the auto-parts store anyway because he's the one that makes those decisions, and he wouldn't have had to deal with two jumps.

 

I got myself an emergency battery anyway because they are useful even if you're not expecting the car to be a POS.  I would have gotten one at the auto parts store, but I wanted one that would work through the lighter.

I have conditions that affect my social awareness.  If I am rude, tell me what I could do better.

So this jump-start can't work with a damaged battery.  I had to call a cab to get to my appointment.  I understand that hubby wanted the car to keep his phone in, but I should have made him take mine. 

 

My appointment was cancelled because the insurance didn't cover that guy and they weren't able to call me because someone entered my number wrong.  I was pretty stressed by that point and asked if they had any people around to talk to.  I also snapped at them about how obnoxious the musak was, so they stuck me in an empty office instead of having me in the waiting room.  I colored while they did what they could to straighten things out.  They also gave me a bit of other help because of a thing with a retiring doctor who I hate anyway.  (Basically have to go to another office for part of my services, wasn't sure how to do it right so insurance would cover.)

 

I didn't feel like going home right away.  I wandered around a bit and discovered exactly where the commuter train was.  I wasn't really up for an adventure on top of this morning's mess, but I did suck it up because taking another cab was also an adventure.  I ended up at the mall, had bubble tea for lunch and it was disgusting, I got a massive headache from all that sweetness.  I bought myself a coloring calendar and a toy and took the bus home.  Taking the bus directly from where I was might have been less walking, but also less pleasant walking.

 

Just as I got home, my foot suddenly decided that it'd had enough.  I still went out to pick up Chinese once hubby got home.  I bought twice as much as what we needed, so I'm not cooking tomorrow.  I am making hubby deal with my car after work.

 

I made tea, I'm forgiving myself for not doing any housework but I need to bust arse tomorrow.
